    The snow is on its way and singles everywhere are frantically searching the personal ads of Craigslist hoping to find someone to snuggle up to before they're trapped in their apartments for a few days.   

    An estimated 2-3 feet of snow is due in the NYC area, a storm that officials are calling "historic." So why not take advantage and try to fall in love?

    This is funny...or sad.
    Single people posting Craigslist ads in the personals to find a blizzard buddy to snuggle up to. Just a new gimmick?

      The phenomenon might be reinforced by the Steve Carell  film "Finding a Friend for the End of the World."

    I suspect it is a gimmick.  Most modern urbans know that you do not go alone to someone's home on a first date with a complete stranger.

    Sadly I don't think it's a gimmick....but it is kind of scary. Hard to believe but I think many people DON'T have enough sense not to go home with a total stranger....crazy!

    Definitely a gimmick to entice people back to their proverbial lair's lol. I think the sad part is that there will inevitably be people that take the poster's of these Craigslist ads up on their respective offers. I think this blizzard simply gives creative and deviant minds another way to lure people in.... blizzard buddy?! It's simply people that don't want to be alone for a few days trapped inside and they figure if someone bites they may be able to make a friend, have someone to stay warm with for a few days, or maybe even parlaying it into sex.
