  1. I haven't given my avatar's age much thought. The only thing I hope is that my avatar doesn't look 20-ish.
  2. I think you just answered your own question. People don't tell because if they do tell you upfront then you "might" still spend time with them; which means you might not. People don't get accepted at face value in RL, why would they want to not be treated at face value in their second?

There are plenty of jerks in SL and RL gender has nothing to do with it. I guarantee there are an equal number of people playing the same gender as their RL one and lying about details of their real li
