We knew each other in real space.
We met through mutual friends at
first
and later became much closer.  I remember
we shared a hotel room
on one family trip.  It was like crossing a bridge of friendship which is what we all had hoped for.  At least I hope
we all did.
It was watching her brush her teeth in the morning
that really sank the hook in my heart.

Was it the way she spit into the sink at the end?

That's what does it for me.

In SL, even though RL wasn't kind and it ended our relationship, for a while it was wonderful, we met while I was stripping, I was on the dance pole and he was watching.

In RL, his Dad and my Dad were best friends since childhood, so we met soon after I was born when Dad invited his Dad to bring the family over to meet the new baby, He didn't seen to notice that I was actually a girl till I was 18 though.

Well... I was working on an escort sim and spotted her standing across the street (she was working too). I walked right up to her and said "Looks like I lost the corner on cute".

We have been inseparable ever since, and that was 3 and a half years ago.

This is Clover we're talking about.  Rainbows, smiles and innocence of course.  And maybe a hairball too.

 

- reading comprehension fail -

For some reason I thought you ask what was it she spit into the sink at the end.

No, it was the way she stood on her tip toes.  Her night shirt was just above the apple of her bottom with her arm raised up and it wiggled back and forth in reverse motion of her arm as she brushed.  It was a very classic scene.  Adorable to say the least.  It is one of my happiest memories and sets me on fire every time I think of it.

 

 

I'll be in my bunk ...

We met in another place and time elsewhere on the 'net, a very long time ago. We allowed things to bloom naturally, as they should, which lends a lot to why we're still together after all these years. :)

You had me at hairball.

Well, technically Clover had you at hairball, but I'm sharing in that vicariously.

Ghosty and I met on the original forums. I came to SL a year before him, so it was around oh, June 2008 when we first "met" there.  We flirted with each other on the forum, and finally met inworld for a date a few weeks later.

A couple of months after getting to know each other better in world, we met up outside SL when he came to visit me overnight. It was an instantaneous combustion between us as soon as we saw each other in person.

We skirted around calling it a relationship for a while longer; he didn't live in the same state as me and I was also in the middle of getting out of a marriage. Not optimal timing.

However, once I was more disengaged from my prior relationship things heated up more and Ghosty moved up to be with me.  The night he told me he loved me is very memorable for both of us. It was the first time I ever remembered someone telling me that and actually looking me in the eyes to make sure I understood.  

We got married this June for real at our home with a small group of friends and family.  We're now together for nearly 9 years from when we first me.

Tangentially. The first messages were strictly work-related but still had a certain energy to them that couldn't be ignored .. or actually even fully recognized. Then big things happened in her life, big things happened in mine. For some reason we both found the place and time to recognize the energy. Even with many-months long separations, we still tend to live in each other's minds. So intense sometimes it's like two people/one brain.

That's the great thing about romances. They're so romantic. :-)

I've seen many examples of SL connections that have led to RL. I remember someone responding to a similar thread in the forum way back when  She started out talking about how she met this guy, just by chance, in SL. One thing led to another, they actually met in RL (a transatlantic flight for him). They met in RL again. He moved in.

She finished the post by telling us she'd neen married to him for three years and was expecting their first child in a few months. :-)

ps

A friend recently married to someone she'd met online, though not in SL. They'd first  met in WoW or some variant of that. She was a sniper....and deadly. In our travels together she told me about him; how they'd met and communicated online years before, but that the communication eventually dissipated. She told me all about him because he'd emailed her, out of the blue. She told me how they'd met, in that war game. Apparently he was a sniper, too. She said, "He shot me in the butt!"

I mean, you gotta admit that beats the hell out of, "Come here often?". A bit unorthodox, perhaps.

She pulled him into SL. I was a bridesmaid at their SL wedding (you'll never believe who the pastor presiding was). While all that was going on he'd visited and spent time with her, several times. Was a transatlantic trip for him, too. Not any more; he lives in the US now.

They are now a married couple in RL.

Since there is so many sad romantic stories around the Grid (and in RL too unfortunately...), it feels good to hear about those HAPPY ending Stories ( :

So who the pastor presiding was ? x:

I met my bf in another game , not SL. It's funny because i never looked for relationships, especially in online games. But he found me when i least expected it.It all started with talking on voice chat, since we needed to use ts3 to raid dungeons. He claims he was mesmerized by my voice  the first time he heard me :) We been together for 4 years and still going strong. It helps that hes from the same background as i am.

P.S I tried to get him into SL, but hes not interested in playing virtual dolls. MMORPGS are his thing lol

I can tell you this much: that person is a frequent contributor to this forum, and has an apparently bona fide RL certificate as a reverend.

I'll add that I'm intrigued by your smiley. I knew one other person who used that 'upside down' version instead of the normal : ). She was from a country well south of the equator.

I met my partner in a StarWars themed IRC Chatrpg in Autumn (Fall ;) )2014. He volunteered in my only active unit at that time, my other character being inactive. I was impressed by his epic skills but we didn´t stay in contact. A few months  (March 2015) later  I attended my first offline  meetup of said RPG...  we hung out as a friend switched  from my active unit to the one my now-BF is (still) commanding and he was pestering for me to put my inactive char to that unit

Well during the meetup there were at least 2 or 3 of that unit together... and I was constantly surrounded by at least one of them (my now bf 80+ % of that time)... I went to the bathroom on my own but that´s pretty much it. I gave in and reactivated my other char, joined the unit and  my bf and I started to chat.... on a daily basis.... for 4-18hrs a day. He never lived more than an hour away so we met at a convention, he got me into cosplay, we build a clique of friends, a monthly StarWars gettogether, 2 PNP groups (well 3... EOTE is inactive, D&D and SR still going strong^^) ... so we hung out pretty much every weekend or...3 out of 4 within the past year, not a single one without him since this May.

We´ve been best friends for the past 2 years - it just clicked with us... we still chat ...well... all day, every day, first thing in the morning, last thing at night... and boy did I fall for him back in May 2015...

He gave me one look like eyeing me from out of the corner of his eyes, grinning widely - I had no chance. The feelings developped into a deep love and a "ok I thought he was the man of my dreams but he´s even more than that - nobody´s got a chance against him... not even slightly" feeling, I even LAUGHED at profiles and descriptions of other guys (I feel so sorry for them but DAMN...)

Yeah ... he finally broke me into telling him around last Easter (he has this way that just makes me talk... or write... it is annoying and magical xD), he didn´t share my feelings but hated it as we´re so perfect together. It was just he was missing that little spark...

Now knowing that already I gave up on the thought of love and having a relationship AT ALL ... EVER again... so I focussed on that awesome deep friendship. I had my dreams at night to enjoy.

Well... 2 weeks ago he confessed his doubts and fears have finally been completely erased and he felt the spark... we´re officially together now and he admits that the transition has pretty much begun a couple of months ago when we started to act less nervous and shy when we were alone and started to not just enjoy hugs but cuddle more and more... ^^

 

FINALLY...

He´s not on SL but I keep him up to date, show him things, ask for opinion and suggestions...^^

I met my partner in 2005 here in SL.....we're ancient as active SL couples go :-)

I was on my original avatar and shopping for more stuff to wear (I was active in the *original*  Amazon Nations; Freelon & Themiskaya) and the whole thing started innocently enough with her asking me "where did you find that?"

Fast forward almost 12 years and we have been together for a LOT of tumultuous stuff in RL as well as SL - never once making contact in RL outside of the expected email-flood :-)

During that time I've chatted her up more than anyone else as life evolved; our RL children both graduated and moved off into the world, RL friends passed away, my little brain-injury and the Recovery, careers changing, being in different countries and from vastly different backgrounds, spending endless hours clubbing, escorting, diving into in the RP community the SL BDSM-scene (we have a very "mature" relationship), building, running a club, helping to manage sims and being pretty much the only constant for each other in a digi-verse that changes at the drop of a pixel-brassiere....

The best way I know to sum it up is by morphing a quote from Deadpool....."Her crazy matches my crazy.."

Me and sabrina were in the same drafting and design classes in highschool and were probably the only competent people in that entire class, and as such worked a lot together. She got an internship and offered me similar work, turns out our bosses both knew eachother so we were paired on projects in work as well. Then i lost my job due to layoffs and needed a place to stay, Sabrina was like "yeah sure loser" and now i live with her, and its a party, and slowly it turned into more of a romantic thing and its been a blast.

We're otherwise kind of into the same degenerate crap to do on the internet so showing her SL was fun.
