While Craigslist is good for a lot of things, like finding a good used couch, a last minute concert ticket, or even a roommate, one woman found the ultimate score on the site – a husband.
In September 2013, Jessica Huey faced the prospect of going to a wedding alone when she knew her ex-boyfriend would be there, so rather than go by herself she posted an ad on Cragislist for a “devilishly handsome" man to accompany her and show up the ex, but what she got was a whole lot more.
One of the respondents was RJ Steiger, and after the first meeting she knew there was something more to this guy than just a hired plus one and they started dating immediately. In fact, that first meeting went so well that it lasted two and a half hours and wound up being their first date. Then, after two years of dating RJ popped the question and, they just got hitched this past May.
- As for what got RJ to respond to Jessica’s says it was pretty simple. "I was 100% in before I even finished reading it," he explains. "The aspect of winning the breakup I completely could relate to. Instead of pretending to win, she actually won the break up."
