Ladies, when the season's first snowstorm hits, there's no reason to hibernate alone.

New York's Craigslist Romeos are only too happy to host you for a weekend of earthly delights, from cooking together to #netflixandchilling — because "going out will be a challenge," as one puts it.

"Let's meetup and heat things up so much the snow will melt when it gets her [sic]," suggests the poster of one personal ad for a "casual encounter."

Another potential lover who lives in Flatiron and is unconcerned about hypothermia offers: "Let's romp around the snowy streets of New York with flasks of whiskey, and see where the night takes us."

Most aren't too discriminating about their partner's attributes:

"Only looking for disease free females between the ages of 24 and 45," writes one especially romantic Craigslist user.

"Into slim, curvy, thick and small bbw women race doesn't matter but hygiene is extremely important."

Another man, a self-described "wealthy fun guy," says you shouldn't contact him "if you are one of those 'always trolling here' ladies looking for the geezer or pathetic sugar dads."

Please note, he adds: "Just because i have money and am a spoiler and will treat you better than you have ever had it does not mean i am desperate."

Among your other options, you could enjoy an intellectual tete-a-tete with one of two poets haunting the "Missed Connections" page.

One man, a lover scorned, would like you to know that "floating around in the atmosphere / is 100 photos of you / all in tiny little pieces of nothingness ... and during a blizzard three months later / i'd stick out my tongue for the snow / but one of those tiny little pieces of you would stick instead."

A second would likely woo you with his sing-song internal rhymes: "Snow is falling in Manhattan, I've got my coat, I've got my hat on / Falling deeper out in Brooklyn, someone cold that I just took in." 

Whichever way you choose to spend your weekend, please, please avoid the "Baby, It's Cold Outside" scenario. If he tells you the snow's up to your knees and you could catch pneumonia if you left his apartment, don't let that dissuade you from scurrying away.
