  1. Hello, the "ruth" glitch hit me on Monday too. First of all, try Character Test. To do this, enable the Advanced Menu option, then in that menu go to Character Test > Female (or Male) Character Test > and enter... you will be retored as a day one noob avi, which for female is the polka dot dress look. From there, restore yourself by dragging a ready-made folder of your look from Inventory. If you don't have a look saved as a folder, be sure to do that for quick restorations in the future. However, it won't drag onto you if you are still in the "ruthed" mode because you will get the
  2. Thank you for the Words of Torley, and to Czuri and everyone that keeps them alive. It helps me to see i'm not the only one who thinks everything is as real as it seems. [CORRECTION--meant to say ty Perrie and also Dillon for Words of Torley] This reminds me of this bit of internet wisdom-- "Sometimes people put up walls, not to keep others out....but to see who cares enough to tear them down" No idea who said that first, but our avatars are all that, mirrors, walls, windows into our souls. As the OP, just wanted to pop in and show appreciation, continuing to follow. When i originally poste
  3. great idea, Perrie, and i'd like to add: Build Buddy or Business Partner
  4. That is a powerful message, Dillon. Yes, I would like to have a copy and will IM you inworld. Thanks so much.
  5. well it's not in the Knowledge Base. i didn't see any mention of cost in the faq on partnering but it does state 25L to unpartner. however, i found this on New World Notes Blog "" The "Partner" option in Second Life enables you to list another Resident as such in your avatar profile (if that person accepts your proposal, that is), and doing so is a bargain deal, literally costing pennies: listing cost is $L10 (around 3.7 37 US cents), and L$25, if the couple decides to get divorced. "": That quote is from 2008, so not sure how many pennies that is now. So, yes. 10L to partner and 25L to
  6. hmm, where did i get that? i've never sent one myself. maybe it's 10L to accept? i'll check the knowledge base?? ;p
  7. Feelings are probably the most real thing that can be experienced, whatever we call them. emotions. heartbreak. disappointment. it's all absolutely personal. fiction is our tool here, and some of us jump right in, others sooner or later. actually, from what i've heard, it seems it's not at all unusual for the role play head to real life. So there is no place to check your heart at the door, and no sameness of everyday reality to keep you grounded. Very much like a drug. It only takes 10L to partner, and 25L to unpartner. Now that's a funny way to show a sliding scale. Maybe it should co
  8. Czari, one more time, i absolutely agree. Faking death to escape an internet relationship is probably as morally bad as hacking their account, even their bank account. Your details about the history of it from your perspective were fascinating. Now i'm afraid i'll not believe it's real when anyone here supposedly dies, and that is the real shame.
  9. Jeanne, i do appreciate the humor about the mountain lion. And i somewhat agree that in these kind of sl romances, where there is no intent to take it to real life, no matter how real it feels, and no matter what the other person says, it really is a sort of role play. You guys have done a great service grounding me, personally. I appreciate your spirit of sharing and not being afraid to dust off the personal anecdotes to shed some light. Jeanne, i read your last couple of posts more carefully to get the spirit of what you are saying. I think i would add that while it may sound cruel to
  10. Pfft, i hear you and i feel your pain. Woke up middle of the night and found myself searching for information about the event he's attending which prevents him from being on this week. Trying to tell myself it's a veracity check. I'm moving on no matter if it kills me, because this is somewhat unhealthy for me. At the moment, Perrie's humorous suggestion about making an alt to be the partner is lighting up the problem solving side of my brain. What if my real life husband decides to join me in sl??? Hmmm, not such a bad idea now, is it?
  11. ouch, Perrie. "You made a mistake here entering into this relationship when you were either not ready to or didn't think through the long term ramifications. I'm not going to let you off the hook on this." Whew, that knocked the wind out of me. Thanks for being direct this time. Do you know, this has all been very cathartic. He'll be back soon and i'm realizing that i'm missing him. Perhaps i'll find some uforgiveable fault someday but for now, after weighing the options here, I think the only problem is my own discomfort with feeling fettered by it. Not because i want someone else, but
  12. Czari, this would be a funny story if it weren't kind of sad. Definitely true that a person who has a tendency to lie will lie even when telling the truth would be easier. Reminds me of that saying about someone, "he/she would lie about what time it is" even if you're both wearing a watch. What the liers don't realize is that even though this is a big playground, lies are not limited to the little box of text where one types them. It's a great place to build, not just objects, but also social skills and maturity. One is never too old to grow young here.
  13. Thanks, Rayse. This one wouldn't stalk, but he might mope. I know this because of prior discussion about it. As to the block aspect of the mute feature, i do know from elsewhere that blocking someone on skype may completely block them here, even if not muted by you in sl. I don't know this for sure, but i believe it may be that skype blocks from your computer to the other person's. If anyone has any experience with that, please comment.
  14. Madelaine, Very good observation. Yes, i'm giving it to the winter solstice, when the Mayan calendar restarts a 26,000 year cycle, and hoping it all falls into place then. Yes, trust the gut and don't expect an easy answer. Also don't complicate the simple truth by sugarcoating a lie. When and if anyone unpartners here, it should be with some thoughtful discussion and a firm resolve, but not cruelty or lies. In the mean time, it has been helpful to hear from all of you here in the forums.
  15. Thanks, Tex. Yes, i agree, it would be horrible to just unpartner and then mute someone simply because you dread the fall-out. I also believe SL teaches karma, or allows our imaginations to experience it. It's a world of imagination, full of fantasy and wonder, but the feelings are as real as anything in our so-called real life. When we partner, unless there is a pre-agreement about the nature of role-play, we are accepting some responsibility for the other person's feelings. I think it's a perfect mirror of real life another way, too. We tend to project alot and fill in the unknowns wi
