Classified sites are the alternatives most like craigslist personals.  They let you post ads for casual encounters and view other ads in your areas.  Depending on the site, they may or may not allow pictures or obscenity in the titles.  Doublelist for example, has filters that prevent you from putting words like 'suck' in the title.

Social hookup sites work kinda like facebook and require you to make a profile and upload a picture.  You can then browse the profiles of other people and send them messages.  Some sites like Adult Friend Finder have extra features like voice chat, chatting, forums, and cams.  While others like Alt.com, BBW Hookups, and Ashley Madison are for specific niches like BDSM, Big Beautiful Women, and Affair dating.

Escort sites are alternatives for sex work and sex workers.  They exist to connect sex workers with new clients.  The best site for this so far is Switter.at, which was created by sex workers,  for sex workers.

The top ten sites to use instead of personals

Craigslist personals has been down for a while, and it doesn't look like it's coming back any time soon.  In fact, the man responsible for shutting it down has been saying he won't stop until all alternatives and replacements are shut down.  

This site is the resistance to that kind of attitude.  We try to update this site with any new alternatives, so we can continue finding casual encounters, just like we did in the good old days of personals.

The Most Similar Site To Personals: DoubleList

This free site is the closest to completely replacing personals.  It has even expanded and improved on craigslist's design by adding more emphasis on hooking up and finding sex.

After you visit the site you will be prompted to put in your email and phone number so they can verify your identity (and track you), this makes them SESTA compliant and a legal alternative to craigslist personals.  The company of 200 employees is mostly dedicated to removing spam and ads for underage sex.

Once you're logged in you will answer a series of questions about what you are looking for and who you are.  You can choose couples, M4M, M4F, trans, and more.  This will update your profile and show you results that you are more likely to be interested in.

After the sign-in phase it's much more similar to craigslist personals.  You just pick a section and browse for what you are looking for.  You can read my full review of doublelist here.

Bedpage

Bedpage is another free classifieds site where you can post ads for finding casual sex.  It's international and like craigslist, there is a  personals section to post your casual encounter ads.

In my experience, bedpage is not nearly as good as doublelist, and i'd only recommend trying it if you feel stuck with doublelist.  The main problems with it is that there aren't as many users, and it's about 1000 times less busy than craigslist personals was.  In addition, there's lots of spam and fake accounts that can make it tricky to find real people.  It's also more for finding providers than it is for hookups, if you are looking for M4M i'd especially avoid this one, as it's a bit of a ghost town in that department.

You can read my longer bedpage review here.

Fetlife

Fetlife is another good craigslist personals replacement, and works kinda like facebook.  They have a classifieds group that lets people post sex ads for casual encounters near them.  It requires you to make a free account and make a profile to be able to see the classifieds section, though.

If you are a kinky and open minded person, this will probably be the best personals alternative for you.  You can read more about how to use the site in my full review.

    Negative stereotyped situations may exist, but they are not the whole picture. In an attempt to foster a false sense of “drama,” the entertainment and news media almost never give a positive slant to prostitution, and for some reason, they rarely present any images at all of escort services.
