Anonymous: heeeeey d'you have any fics where people meet other people via dating site? I don't particularly care about the pairing
Hi there Anon!
I … can’t recall all that many (Does Craigslist count? There are a few sugar Daddy ones…)
In any case:
Excellent Judgment by cimorene [Cherik, NC17, Speed-Dating, Unpowered, Fluff, College/Uni]
"Your friends go to school while dating," says Charles thoughtfully.
"Lots of people do that, Charles. You’re just a workaholic who owns a speed-dating business."
Charles waves that away. “Speed-dating doesn’t take up any time at all. Once per month. Moira spends more time than that watching Clint Eastwood movies.”
Raven sighs. “Everybody dates. You used to date!”
"That wasn’t dating, Raven, that was drinking," explains Charles.

Mutually Beneficial Transaction by Pookaseraph [Cherik, NC17, Fluff, Angst, Age Difference, College/Uni]
In his sophomore year at Columbia University, Erik, feeling slowly strangled by his mounting college debt, places an add on a sugar daddies website. He doesn’t know exactly what to expect from it, but when he’s contacted by a man named Charles who seems less creepy than the other people who have responded to his profile, he decides to give it a shot. Charles is nothing like what he expected, and Erik finds himself slowly falling in love with his sugar daddy while trying to find out exactly what caused this amazing guy to buy his emotional and sexual intimacy when he clearly deserves so much more than that.
[ Mod Note | I ADORE this one :D :D :D -squishes the boys-]
Casual Encounters by SharpestScalpel [Cherik, PG13, Age Difference]
Charles is a busy professor in his 30s - busy enough that a craigslist casual encounter is really the only way he’s going to get laid any time soon.
Erik is a 19-year-old virgin with an internet connection and no social skills.
I think you see where this is going.
Silver Mutants Dot Com by nekosmuse [Cherik, PG, Fluff, First Date Awkardness, Smitten!Erik ~ Submitted by giandujakiss, Thanks!]
