  1. I can definitely see the brow is thinner, like it has been plucked or waxed, although the general shape looks the same.  The main difference between the before and after seems to be the skin color or shade.  The after looks slightly darker, with a bit more yellow and the highlights and shadows evened out and less noticeable.  I don't think the actual shape of the cheeks, chin and jaw have changed, but because the highlights are more evened out their shape appears to be less pronounced.  Although I can see the differences I'm not sure why it happened or how to fix it.  Maybe someone with more experience can help.

    Good luck solving your problem.

    I agree. 

    I was addressing Lisa who seems to think that if there is no jealousy, there is no bonding and no caring, because she equates bonding with caring.   I think that there can be caring without bonding and there would probably be no jealousy.  I think there can be bonding with little or no caring (except for one's own needs and desires) where jealousy would probably play a part.

    The example you have given of your parents' relationship and the post Freya made about compersion have made me examine my ideas about non-monogamous romantic relationships a little.  I think that if the relationships are bonded and caring there would probably be jealousy but it would be tempered by love. 

    My experience is with non-romantic relationships.  My son has a very strong bond with my sister.  I think he would prefer her for his mother.  At times I've felt twinges of jealousy that don't last very long but it has not changed my relationships with either of them since I love them both very much.  Not sure I could accept the same kind of situation in a romantic relationship.

    Talk about misleading.  Here you are equating caring with bonding. They are not the same.

    A person who feels inadequate in themselves looks to others to fill that need.  When they find someone who is willing to supply that they bond with them but do they really care for them or only care for having their need fulfilled? 

    Love, acceptance and caring can be given with no strings attached, without bonds.  It is not always easy to do since we all feel inadequate to some extent or another.  And we won't have much love to give if we have not tapped into the love deep inside ourselves.

     

    Caring IS bonding. They were bonded to each very much so. They had strings attached. ...

    This thread is not all about your parents relationship, since I have no knowledge of it I was not addressing it.

    definition for caring:  displaying kindness and concern for others

    Caring can be done with no bonds.  Nurses, doctors, social workers do it all the time.  We do it all the time when we show empathy for others - no strings attached.

    I think some of the disagreements between participants in this thread can be attributed to different definitions of "role play" and the assumption by some that the OP's use of the word "love" is a euphemism for "sex".

    To address the second issue, it is quit clear from belle's first post that she(?) is talking about emotions (love), whether sex is involved or not.   She is asking about people's real feelings toward those they role play being in love with.

    Things are further complicated because some people think all of SL is role play and others define role play as acting as a character in a RP sim or agreed upon scenario where there is a distinction between acting and speaking IC and OC.  There are even some who think lying about their RL is also roleplay.

    Having never been in love in an RP situation I can't answer for sure about that.  I do think it may be easier to keep real emotions out of it in that kind of situation when both understand it is strictly roleplay.  I have been in love in SL where the boundaries between SL and RL were not distinct and real emotions were involved.  Because so much of RL was revealed I would not consider that roleplay at all, even though we decided to continue playing younger, better looking versions of ourselves.

    You could learn to do it old school..... just make up a voice with your voice. I use voice altering stuff in my youtube movies here: 
     but then I've met a lot of people. well animals/elves etc who just make a new voice on their own. I've met a few people who do cartoon voices for tv and it's amazing what you can do with your own voice if you pratice or try. 

    Watched the video you posted in the "fox" thread; then watched all of yours I could find.  I really enjoyed them - some where laugh-out-loud funny.  Your voice is half the fun.  Hope you make some more.

    I can thoroughly sympathize. While I didn't seem to develop to ridiculous proportions, I did develop before anyone else. It was, to say the least, humiliating at times.

    Thanks.  I can understand that.  The teen years were difficult for many, both male and female.  Glad to be finished with them but I see where some may want to use SL as a chance to experience a different version of them.

    P.S. Even with Voice Morphing Software it's pretty easy to identify its use in SL. The converted voice just doesn't sound right to my ear.

     From my little experience I agree.  I once went shopping for voice morphing software on an island here in SL with a male friend of mind who was getting a female voice for his teen avi.  He would try each voice and ask me how it sounded.  Most sounded ridiculous - some too squeaky and some so deep they sounded like men or very old dowagers.  We finally settled on one that didn't sound too bad.  A lot better than the one he originally had.

    Responding to bold as well. I was one of those young well endowed children. Its a curse I tell you. 14 and a DDD @ 16 and a 36FF.. and if got worse (bigger). I was hit on my so many adult men. Maybe its why I feel so strongly about child avi's. Bad memories. Im not sure if I am old enough to be a case of the growth hormones or if I took after my Aunt Gigdet.. Either way its a curse Id surely love to give up. 

    I also had to deal with very large breasts as a teen.  At 15 I started my junior year in a public high school (I was a year ahead).  I had been in an all-girls school before that but now there were boys in the classes and they all seemed to stare at my chest and "accidentally" brush up against me.  I started going around hunched over with my chest caved in so I wouldn't stick out so much. I didn't even realize it until my first serious boyfriend when I was a sophomore in college convinced me I had a beautiful body and to stand up straight and show it off. (He was a breast man.)  But even though I had come to  accept and appreciate my body there were some things I regretted.  I couldn't dance as wild and free as I wanted without my boobs bobbing up and down so learned to dance in a more lady-like manner.  Same problem with running and sports.  It was really bad with horseback riding, but I learned to ride with a very still upper body using my long legs as shock-absorbers.   As a result I had very soft hands that horses would accept and ride up to the bit. 

    Since I no longer regret my large breasts I saw no need to make my avi have smaller ones (which I probably would have done if I still had the attitude I had as a teen).  Besides in SL I can dance as wild as I want and no bounce unless I use physics. :)

     

  10. My funniest mistake can not be discussed here.  I'd need to write about it in the adult forums.

    My first mistake was when I was TPed to a starting sim when I first got my account.  I followed directions to step off the TP  point so I wouldn't block others but since I really didn't know how to walk very well I ended up blocked by a tree.  I couldn't figure out how to move around the tree so ended up clicking on the home button which took me to a nice lodge.  I eventually found my way to another beginner location and read up on how to walk, fly and touch things.

    Another incident involved my sister, who I had talked into trying SL.  I had shown her some of the free shops where she had gotten a pair of shoes that made a clip-clop sound when she walked.  Problem was they continued to clip-clop even when she was standing still.  It was so irritating she removed them but decided to go shoe shopping.  She somehow ended up in a dance club and sent me the TP. We had fun there for awhile ...

    until we tried to stop dancing and couldn't figure out how.  We had clicked on the floor to start dancing but when we tried to walk out we just kept dancing.  I tried to stop the animation but no luck.  We finally dance-walked our way out the door hoping we could stop once we were outside.  We probably looked really weird but out in the plaza we were still dancing.  Finally we gave up on shoe shopping and just TPed back to my house where the stop animation worked.

    Hello, my name is Dhuanolil.

    I am a Drow / dark elf with a superiority complex. I live underground in dark caves along with other narcisstic Drow. I sometimes come to the Surface to bless humans, elves, fae, and other people with my gloomy presence.

    Drowesses (female Drow) are both terrifying and sexy. It is a shame many want to sacrifice myself and other males to our goddess.

    Nice to meet you.

    The first time I saw a picture of your avi it reminded me a little of the Wraith in Stargate Atlantis, although the Wraith are a lot more scarry.  I had to lookup what a Drow was. Since they have been part of D&D for some time now I wonder if they influenced the creation of the Wraith.

    When I was pre-school growing up in Huston, Tx there was a homeless man who supposedly lived under one of the bridges.  He carried a sack when he rummaged through the garbage cans at the garage apartment complex where we lived and the nearby trailer park.  Local mothers threatened their kids with the "sack man".

    Strange, as the shape is very womanly. The skin is light on make up and heavy on the gloss. There really is no feature that makes her truly a teen other than what people perceive based on the color of her clothes and perhaps the flowers in her hair.

    The skin is not intended to be a teen skin either.

    To show you the difference clothing can make, here's her in a wholly different outfit:

    The only difference is the outfit, the mini devil horns and the septum ring as well as a change of glasses. Everything else is the same. Does she still look like a teen? I wouldn't say so, her skin is as smooth as many other avatars, I could probably give her squinty eyes and a frowny mouth like it's a fad among bloggers and she'd look even less like a teen but that's not how I roll lol.

    She looks like a teen in this picture because her eyes are so large for the size of her face.  Either a teen or a caricature.

    ...  Now it could take years to find something meaningful again and all you do is joke about it.  

    Nicholas, You sound very young, so let me give the benefit of some my life experience  - the best way to find a meaningful new relationship is to stop looking for one.  Before I explain that advice in more detail let me backtrack a moment.  I'm assuming you have separated yourself from your former girlfriend.  If not do that first.  One of you needs to move out.  Preferably you and don't tell her your new location. Stop all contact.  It sounds like a relationship that could turn tragic; better get out while you still can.

    Living alone can be difficult when you are used to having another presence even if they were not a happy presence.  There is an emptiness that begs to be filled but when you are desperate to find someone the only new someones usually turn out to be just as desperate.  It's like you give off a "vibe" that seems to attract other needy people.  You end up going from one bad relationship to another. 

    So my advice stop looking to fill that emptiness with someone else and start looking within yourself.   Think about what makes you happy, what interests you, what goals you may have.  Try to really understand yourself and be at peace.  When you are at a calmer more confident place with yourself then you will be more likely to attract others that are similar.

    Yes, you're exactly right.  Thanks.

    There is a tricky maze in the Weyandt's Revenge Jumping Puzzle in GW2 (starts about 2:30 on the video). I wandered around for what seemed like hours the first time I tried that puzzle before I realized I could walk through some of the walls.  If my character's hand had actually been on the wall I would have realized sooner when her hand went through the surface of the wall.

    I greatly agree with the prison, make it so its a 4 sim MAZE where the only way to get out is to solve that very complex maze, and every other day the design changes making it more impossible to solve.

    Each player is also under a time limit if they can't solve the maze within the time limit they are reset back to the starting point....

    let me know what you think

    First off to the OP: some great and fun ideas.  Don't see LL implementing them though.  Maybe someone will incorporate some of them into a sim.

    Aerith: Just about any maze can be solved by placing the right hand on the wall and keeping it there as you walk the maze.  Alternatively you can use your left hand to solve the maze, just don't switch hands in the middle.  This method would not work if there is a tight time limit though before the maze changes.
