Subject: Craigslist is awesome

You may or may not have heard me talking this weekend about the possible over use of “awesome” in Craigslist apartment listings. I did some searches in housing and in personals. Below are my totally unscientific findings.

Today’s “awesome” count for Chicago’s Craigslist

all housing: 549

  • apartments/housing for rent: 288
  • rooms & shares: 41
  • sublets & temporary: 23
  • real estate for sale: 179

personals: 157 (didn’t break down by ethnicity)

  • “strictly platonic”: 11
  • women seeking women: 2
    • # of times “sense of humor” appears: 5
  • women seeking men: 13
    • # of times “starbucks” appears: 4
  • men seeking women: 31
  • men seeking men: 30
    • # of times “boi” appears: 16
    • # of times sense of humor” appears: 17
  • “misc romance”: 0
  • casual encounters: 27
  • missed connections: 9
  • rants & raves: 33
