I met someone, After 2 weeks, wanted me to move in has premium account, is in a linden home.  I did move in (per se).

 

While looking at profile, web shows pics of me THEN I see a pic IN THE HOUSE of him with someone else recently.  Well, I was shocked.

What should I do?  

BTW  noticed sometimes name not on dashboard but inworld listed as 'offline'

The first thing you should do is post your situation to the General Discussion forum, not this one.

I am sure that you will get a lot more suggestions than you will with this one languishing here.

But leave it until next Friday, when this sort of post gets a lot of attention.

You certainly don't want to be asking me what you should do. I'm barely able to figure out what I should do.

The anonymity of SL makes deception easy, and we're always susceptible to self deception. I'm not promoting cynicism, but a little skepticism helps temper expectations.

My experience with the dashboard online/offline indicators are that they are fallible and slow to update.

Did you ask him about it?

Talk to him before jumping to conclusions.  And this is sl, things don't last for too long usually.  Concerning the names,  you have an option that allows you to decide whether a particular person should see when you are on or off.  I guess that it is linked to what you see on the dashboard.  

 

Though if you are already feeling that you can not trust him and want to keep an eye on him, don't waste your time,  just move on you don't need drama

The online/offline indicators are buggy.  2 days ago I was chatting with my partner and she was showing offline even though she was right there in the room, talking with me. We could talk normally in local but any attempt to use IM would send it to her email as an offline.

So basially, don't trust them as a 100% infallible way of knowing whether someone is online or offline.

I think many of the posters here sort of missed your point.

Your post reads as if its romantic, or well on its way.  Keep in mind SL is based around poseballs and menu of an adult nature and filled with men AN women looking for pixel stimulation. Or to make MONEY off that.

So many people here think that they will meet someone and take it to RL, the odds of that happening, slim to none, thought there have been a FEW cases and I can ASSURE you they look NOTHING like their model perfect pixels!

Can RP or just social interactions feel real-you betcha....they come with real feeling and real emotions as we move our pixels around the world.

But the industry of SL or shall we say the *companies* in it, from the sim owners to the couch makers to the clothing desgners are selling one thing..sex.

People profess all sorts of love and forever and then jump on an alt, or sneak around while your pixels sleep.And if anyone tells you they don't have an alt. or 12 they are a.) lying or b.) lying...and there is no way to ever find this out.

Be it RL or SL, after only 2 weeks you are but in an infatuation stage and since you said *HE* well men follow the pixel porn long before they follow their hearts.

Be blunt..ask, put your expectations of the relationship on the table...MAKE an alt and flirt with him, see what happens. (as a gal friend of mine did only to find her partner going for and paying for escorts.  Yah down and dirty but...you would be surprised.

Go SLOW..just like you would in RL, would you move in with some stranger in 2 weeks time?  Do not be so free to give a heart away so quickly and communication is KEY...put your hopes and expectations on the table if its looking serious and allow them to do the same.  Is it possible to have a great SL partner with loyality and great postive interactions and emotions and other naughty things..SURE!  But depending on the nature of the picture, and if he is not introducing you to this person as a friend without any shame....Run don't walk...AWAY, delete him from your friends list, hit iggy and move on. The world is too big to be worried or feeling grief over a user/player. GOOD LUCK TO YOU. :)
