Any sites like Avmatch for meeting people?

Recommended Posts

Hello, nooblet here! I am always having trouble finding people willing to talk who are not JUST about sex or are afk. I've gone to music venues with genres I like and people are either afk when I message them or still want sex. I am looking for casual conversations and someone to just chat with. I've been trying Avmatch but the free 2 tokens about it and no one has hit me up in-world even if I gave them my name.  I also try different game spots like Susan's Diary and casinos and no one really chats there. Clubs seem mostly for hookups and saying "woo" "love this song".(not dissing any club goers thats just my exp)I'm searching for a possible site or maybe someone else's experience who met plenty of good people.

I don't think I'm one "who met plenty of good people".. but have met a few over my handful of years inworld. I have attempted AVMatch as well.. another is Love Actually...  http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Dreamy/105/163/22  somewhat similar. Then there's a few more that come & go. I've not had much 'luck' of finding a sticking relationships, there's just sooo many elements that go into that. I haven't checked my AvMatch account recently.. guess I should go check and see!

BUT overall.. I think it's still best just to go to the sims YOU enjoy.. find the others that enjoy them too.. and that at least one factor outta the way! (and additionally takes the factor of 'When both are inworld at same time' factors. The NEXT hurdle is who owns land/home themselves.. and is willing to share/combine and expenses for ALL each wants to do within the developing Friendship.

The Chat sims.. and Dance sims come & go as well.. I'm always exploring them.. am a dancer.. and CHATTERBOX (which seems to bother some of my acquaintances)

Clubs can appear pretty antisocial until you're 'in the loop', I wouldn't recommend clubbing for making friends unless you actually enjoy the process. As for people wanting sex, well, you'll find those all over, whether you're in a new avi help center, a photo sim, a club, a store or a sandbox; it's a pestilence, but the symptoms aren't too bad once you're used to turning them down or blocking them.

The most successful bouts I've had when I was in need of friends was simply to post on the forums, or snipe people who posted themselves. Somewhere 'round October-November a friend and I just began picking people off the forums if they seemed interesting and plonked them all down to play games and chat - it was pretty fun for as long as it lasted. Of course, the problem with throwing things at the wall to see what sticks is, not everyone sticks. Still got a few friends from then who I talk with though, even if many of them dropped out of SL since.

Another idea is to look at events, see if there's anything you're interested in (that isn't DJ SUPERSTAR THROWING THEM HEAVY BEATS THRU MIDNITE COME THROW MONEYZ AT US), go to sims which appeal to your interests and see if you can strike up conversation with people there. Or, get into RP - just be wary of how many people don't know how to differentiate OOC/IC and go berserk if your character winked at them and they think it means you're their soulmate in RL.

You can always weed out people keep your walls up but everyone in to other things you don't have do anything your not conferrable doing good to get to know someone. i know the feeling i get tired someone just wants pixel humping I Just say not here for that can you grow a brain please.

Some of the second life hubs find under destinations.

I look in people groups or picks see where they hang out some people have these in their profile or you can always ask say hello how is your day do you know where any good places to meet people.

On the viewer in world Also if you look under search then events on the right hand side day any category look under discussions find a  discussions you may want to attend. You can go to  the place explore before the discussion see if there posters or info notecard books. I go late at night to places see how they are to get the feel see where t he place is land mark it then come back. use your intuition it tells the truth.  

 

Second life 15 year Anniversary soon in June look on the second life blog main page  here on second life be lots people will be going to that to celebrate good way to meet someone. 

 

 

Good luck you will find your way.

Thank you for all the response. I have met some good people on the forums that I just ... plucked! :) Like you said some stick, but the experiences are all that matters. And those who are cool will stay. Thanks again!
