Craigslist Woman Seeks Sex With Father Lookalike, Possible Brother

heart waffles

About 95% of the time, when I hear the term “daddy issues,” I roll my eyes. Typically, the phrase is just referring to the reasoning behind a woman’s unconventional or societally taboo way of behaving, writing those characteristics and behaviors off as some problem she once had with her father. It’s dismissive and patronizing, generally speaking, but then…sometimes, it’s applicable. Like, for example, this rather alarming Craigslist ad revealing a woman wants to have sex with somebody because — well, you’ll see.

The ad, titled “I want to waffle your wolf” (which has since been deleted), reads as follows:

hi i am trying to find the man who works at waffle and wolf in williamsburg. …i am trying to find the man who works at waffle and wolf because you look so similar to my father.

i lost my father in a drunk driving accident was i was 12 years old. but he had darkish reddish hair, wore glasses like you, and was thin. he was my best friend.

Fairly normal, right? Right! Moving on.

i am writing to you because i know that he had a lover in new york. before he died, he worked for the ny times and would visit her. i only know this because i found his travel receipts before he passed on and i threw them away so my mother wouldn’t find them. it’s too much of a longshot that we are siblings, but you look like him, which brings me to this…

Er, it’s actually not a crazy long shot if somebody looks extremely similar to your parent and you know he was sleeping with a woman in the city you’re living in. But, nevertheless, let’s see what she has to say!

my number one fetish is incest-fantasy. i don’t want to have sex with my family, but i like role-playing this fantasy. my boyfriend is not ok with it. i’m not 100% comfortable with it either, and i dont know why it gets me off like it does.

Uh.

Okay. So. Wait. I just…

i want to meet you and maybe have a non sexual encounter where you speak to me as my father and we can resolve my grief. if you are up for a sexual encounter, we can try that out too.

The full thing:

I’m not usually one to judge how somebody deals with their grief, but meeting up with a complete stranger who resembles your dead dad is not a method I’ve heard before. Nevertheless, it’s still not quite as bizarre and uncomfortable as the incestuous aspect of this. That said, if they’re two consenting adults (and are not actually related), then eh! Whatever. Do whatcha want.

According to Aja Romano at the Daily Dot, who called Waffle & Wolf, there’s a man who works there with this description but, upon further questioning, the staff member who had answered the phone hung it back up. They are presumably even more weirded out than the rest of us.

Like I said, I’m not into getting all judgmental regarding people’s sexual choices (with a notable few exceptions, as well as any time it does not involve consent from all parties involved), but I do feel deeply sorry for the dude at Waffle & Wolf who will likely not live this down for quite a while. It’s not the same as gaining notoriety for, say, being Ridiculously Photogenic Guy (whom I saw during my first day in New York and he really is that attractive). Now that would be an okay meme gig to have.

    So pumped that you used a gif from Trailer Park Boys. The rest of this article, of course, yikes.

      AHHH I love TPB! I always thought it’d be an awful show but it is so unbelievably hilarious.

  • Anna

    I was all “Oh how I could see this turning into a great journey for this woman. Finding her half brother, coming to terms with her father’s death, and closure with her father’s death… OH JESUS CHRIST?!”

  • Sarah

    Well that escalated quickly.

    Let’s keep trying to shame people for their attractions and fantasies involving other consenting adults. Let’s let people know that as they get arrested for consensual sex and sent to prison, we’ll just point and say, “Sicko!”
