How much time do you spend with a loved one in SL

Recommended Posts

Just curious how much time each week or day you spend with your loved one in sl in average? When does it become too much and when is it too little to keep it together?

I think it would be different with different people, and obviously the most important thing is that both parties agree on this. It might be fine with some to see thier partner a couple times a week, but if that persons partner wants to see them 6hours every day, conflicts are going to happen. A big factor is what does the person wanna do with thier time, and also why do they wanna be alone, or away from thier partner. A creative person who likes to spend a lot of time in SL creating content might want a lot of free time away from a partner, a playboy who wants to spend hours a day hitting on strange girls at a nude beach also wants that, but the two are obviously very different. But neither one will have a good relationship with someone who is upset anytime they are both on and not together.

I think it depends entirely on the couple and how many interests they share as to how much time they spend together.  Also it depends on the individuals personalities too.  Some people have to have their space, while other's don't so much.  RL takes it's bite too because it should come first and some can't be on SL but maybe a couple hours at a time and not even every day. 

So overall I think it's a mistake to compare the time spent together in your relationship with other couples. If you and your loved one is satisfied that's all that counts.

My relationship with my partner probably isn't typical.  We've been together going on 7 years now and our wide range of interests and tastes in SL and RL are almost the same but different enough in some areas to add spice and learn from each other.  If we are both on, we are together but have time on our on too due to a time difference.  We are best friends and can talk about anything, SL or RL. When we work (both of us are creators), we do it side by side or sometimes together on projects and we socialize together too. 

We spend several hours every day with each other, with time out periodically for our RL's.  Occasionally, of course, we'll miss our daily time together if one of us is traveling, or sick etc.  While we enjoy our time together, which just evolved naturally without any consciousness on our part, we also can function on our own when we need to and enjoy ourselves and don't have any trust or jealousy issues.

Thanks for the replies :)

I know there are differences among people/couples and that's why I started this thread to get different personal opinions. For me like 6 hours a day would be way too much. 1 hour is a bit too little if it is always like that.

Not enough time.  Not nearly enough.  Never enough.

4 to 6 hours a night when I can get in world but that also counts AFK time when we are making supper for our families.

Never enough time.
