Even that doesn't hide your location. In about 5 minutes, I could largely triangulate on a particular listing's location to within a couple hundred yards. Once I get a distance from 3 different points, there is only one location on the surface of the earth where that distance works from all 3 points. You could further refine the location by taking additional points.
Thats why I mentioned the 'myth' of privacy. I wasn't talking about the technology, I was speaking to liability in giving away the locations at both ends of the conversation and how to best mitigate that issue (liability).

Technology is the easiest part but.. throwing in an approximation for the distance (random +/- 1 mile even) would make your approach much more difficult, without reducing the effectiveness of the approximation, all you are communicating initially is a proximity, not a location. You could also easily say 'within 20 minutes' or any other reference, again, its not about technology.
