  1. Talk to people...... really “talk” as opposed to thinking up a cool line. Initiate conversation, be friendly, repeat.
  2. Humans need no reason to get angry, so offer them a consolation sandwich and move on 🙂 `I tell MYSELF this on a regular basis......
  3. Y’know, even the most terminally optimistic of us can have days when *STUFF* can (unintentionally) drag us down. It can almost tempt you to retreat back to your “SL Sleazy Stage” for some mindlessness, but then you remember how long that stuff takes to wash off ...... So my activity is that I’m Sitting here reminding myself that I’m a grownup ........ and I’m supposed to make grownup choices... #adultingsucks
  4. I consistently LOVE talking to my SL friends from Australia 🙂 I keep hoping that their cultural awesomeness will rub off on me 😉
  5. Well, I once spoke to someone who seemed “metaphorically” like they might be from Another Planet....does that count? They MUST have been from an alien planet; what they were suggesting was anatomically impossible ........
  6. Lyn, I think the rise in SL’s rep as Sex Life probably drew in more sex tourists than you were used to before; coupled with a decline in “Sex Tourist Destinations” which leaves those folks wandering aimlessly in search of sexxorz. The traditional Club Scene in SL is really not good for meeting people if you want to find a serious relationship. Clubs are largely full of people playing the role (as they perceive it via popular media) of “young people in a club” and that does not usually include much emotional context I have met more interesting people through groups that were not “club” or ‘party” oriented. I like geeky people who have something to talk about; so I have found fun folks everywhere from writer’s groups to a pawky one devoted to the “worship” of that Internet Legend; the Flying Spaghetti Monster. I know another friend who had success by placing a line in their profile stating; “I’m an introvert, TALK TO ME - I need someone to conspire with”
  7. I understand, my emotional response is one legacy of a very determined and technically proficient stalker who decided to make a royal pain of himself. Mainly my resentment is directed at the Platform owner; who was singularly helpless.
  8. Personally, I have wondered why LL sanctions scanners in its official marketplace.
  9. Unfortunately, its very easy to see who’s on and who’s not. The SL marketplace sells any number of Avatar Scanners that can deny privacy to anyone whose avatar system name you add to its list.
  10. (1) Many people come to a wide-open virtual world holding tightly to the prejudices of RL (2) Learn to ignore #1 and have fun anyway 🙂
  11. Amanda Keen So my Original acquired a Stalker whom no Avatar or Linden could defeat. So I made an alt Some say ....”an alt with a stripper name: Amanda Keen” Luckily my partner also made an alt. She’s kinda hawt... I take some pics for Flickr..... I do some club work..... and I’m on these forums a bit too.... ..and so it continues...... Next?
  12. I’m happy that SL brings you joy, no matter what kind of avatar you choose 🙂 The exercise of Imagination begins when people realize that their soul is not limited by whatever situation they were born into. We only get a finite amount of time in this life; live it as makes you happy.
  13. A courteous squatter would have someone following them with a pooper scooper after they squat.....
  14. I’ve heard complaints from Cam-shoppers like this. They are shopping long-distance at events using their camera and then they try to purchase, they don’t have the right toggles set to enable selection/payment.
  15. Basically the matrix, only not evil. If I could stay there with my partner 100% of the time, as a prospective retiree; I’d be there.
  16. Y’all are a very special couple 🙂 I’m so happy for you!
  17. So if I was single and dating, my dating pool would be exclusively female avatars. If I had a GOOD Girlfriend and found out she was a guy IRL.... who was consciously making an effort to upgrade his gender in SL.... I believe in rewarding good behavior 🙂 Obviously he is a smart guy 🙂
  18. I’d grab my partner and head to our “lifeboat” MMORPG until we can find a SL-ish replacement....... https://media0.giphy.com/media/XGUZYLi23sJaHzuTfW/giphy.gif?cid=8fc3c8975d48fd656a643951635d3a88&rid=giphy.gif
  19. Being buried alive would be it.... https://media1.giphy.com/media/ieJhqWk0LcNqbE2dTj/giphy.gif?cid=8fc3c8975d48fde64a33566f55d0f69d&rid=giphy.gif
  20. I’m an oddity; since 2005 I have been with my SL partner and both of us have happily left that relationship to SL. It works for us, (for 14 years) which is all that matters....
