Communities play such a huge part in our lives when it comes to finding our support systems, friends, social outlets, and even love. They help match us with people who have similar interests, spiritual and/or life philosophies, and in some cases fandoms and special interests.
In the case of Sonya and Phox - two once-strangers who came into Second Life looking for different things - it was a community of role-players that led them to one another. Phox was looking for an active online furry community and found pictures of Second Life furries that led him to sign up, and Sonya was looking to try something new and outside of her comfort zone.
There first “in person” meeting included a boat ride with her parents! You can watch a virtual re-enactment of that trip in the video.
“To anyone looking for love in Second Life … when you’re not looking for it that’s when it’s gonna find you,” says Sonya. “It’ll find you twice as hard.”
Sonya who now shares her life with her husband, Phox, and their adorable first born child.
“Don’t be afraid to meet people” adds Phox.
