it is better to be a loan on SL or not?


Recommended Posts

I suspect you may have meant to use the word "alone" which is totally different in meaning to "a loan".

It's also probably a rhetorical question but I'll answer anyway.

Yes and No

Everyone needs some alone time especially in SL. However to only be alone in SL sort of defeats the entire reason for SL existing in the first place.

Even when I am alone, I don't normally feel lonely.  I prefer doing a lot of things in SL alone.  Shopping, decorating, exploring, taking pics.  There are always places I can go to find people and chit chat if that's what I need.

I don't mind being alone, it never feels that way.

I think I spend most of my time on SL alone, mostly decorating or shopping (although I really need to stop spending all the Lindens :p) or just exploring but even whilst I'm doing that, I'm always chatting with SL friends so yep, I'm alone working on something but at the same time... not really.

A+, I'd recommend ! 😄

   I don't think we should assume that OP meant 'alone', it may well be that they meant 'a loan'.

   The question is, what would it entail to be 'a loan' in Second Life. Life is, according to some, 'a loan'; time is borrowed and one day each life must come to an end, the molecules that make up our bodies will be returned to nature as part of the circle of life. How to apply this to Second Life, however, I'm uncertain of - and what would it be better than? What are the alternatives?

being a loan is a urban thing. If you are lonely then I can be your loan. Meaning I will lend my time and myself to you and we see where it takes us

is how I took OP's question. Is it worthwhile on SL to be a loan?

I'm failing to understand the point of your posts.  This is the second one you have done about relationships and just posted pictures of yourself.  

And in answer to your question.  No, its better to be a keeper.

It depends on how you feel it. I was alone for a short time and I felt very happy to spend more time with friends. But then I met my boyfriend and.. well I suffer because I can't spend more time with him because of the time difference. So if you meet someone and the time zone is right for two of you then it's very nice to have someone. Being alone doesn't mean lonely. Enjoy your sl time the way it's best for you.

Good morning! I would ask to know if you intended it to mean ALONE or actually, A LOAN. To be alone in SL seems to be counterintuitive with the spirit of the place, as it is mainly a socialising place. You may choose to be a lone wolf, wandering from sim to sim, and you might be able to keep the interactions to a minimum, but I do not think you can be alone, as in not interacting, forever. As for ALONE meaning without a partner or a special, significant other, that goes on personal preferences. 

As for being a LOAN, that would imply so many concepts I would not mention them here... Laughs.

Have a great day!

Good morning, Helena:

Very good point. Different TZ can be very challenging. I’ve had my (more than) fair share of that, and at times (pun not intended) they can even put the whole friendship/relationship at risk. So, you made a very good point there. But then, as it is with lags and stuff, that is one of the things that make SL what it is...

Have a great day!

I first saw that on Twitter when someone tried to say the French phrase and failed at it. 🤣

No it is whatever you make of it. Lots of people come here to create and it is often easier to create when there is no one wanting to have a conversation with you.

Good afternoon. Please notice I used “mainly”, thus implying that it might not be the case for everyone.
