  1. Families who want an adult

    Chronologically I qualify, but I can never act the part......
  2. sex expectations in SL

    Whats interesting is that not ONLY is the guy a jerk, but he tried to sway you into acceptance of his jerkishness, You met an actual Asshat Evangelist........ Clarity: All evangelists are not asshats. THIS guy was evangelizing for the Gospel of Jerk making him (specifically) the Evangelist of Asshats.
  3. Goddess Alessa looking for paypigs only!!

    I just laugh-snorted Diet Sunkist reading this........
  4. Suburban Roleplay Community for Adults

    Now maybe if he showed up using that line in a LEATHER fireman's outfit.....groveling at my feet...... It would give me something to punish him for :-P But that's a completely different kind of roleplay :-)
  5. Suburban Roleplay Community for Adults

    I really like "casual interaction" roleplay quite a bit were the interaction sort of develops on its own. Is your sims RP more event-based or "free-ranging"? Also (I'm full of questions), from the list of occupations you mentioned, it sounds like a lot of First Responder roleplay. Is that the main focus or does the sim look for ropleplay that ranges into all areas? I'm not asking to be a pest; I'm interested in finding a casual RP "home" that's not "urban blight" themed.....
  6. Do you give your avatars backstories?

    Heh, as I have Real Life, Second Life and events in a Second Life Roleplay to keep track of.....I end up taking notes on the important stuff :-)
  7. I -just- made the Bento-jump and I really love it. The idea of using gestures to "express myself" with my fingers is probably going to get me in trouble :-)
  8. Well, there are a lot of folks using gestures to spam emoji-like stuff into the ether in SL; but that's a lot of trouble to go to :-) I'm of a generation that -generally- does not include emojii in text based conversation (excepting the occasional smiley), but I do understand that we have a growing population of folks who consider emojii "normal punctuation". There is probably some generational commentary there :-) SL skews "older" in many ways, meaning the emojii significance would be largely lost on people like me, (I have a hard time deciphering non-standard titler-fonts some folks like to use too; but I'm OLD) Overall, my thought is this, if enabling emojii-capability makes a significant population happy; why not? However; speaking as SL roleplayer and echoing another Poster's concern - folks participating in "Literary Parapost Roleplay" where conventiaonal literary expression is the "thing" and the "whole point" would probably still be expected to post in non-Emojii text by many private-sim moderators.
  9. With some Poly groups, they just create a SL group to represent the Partnership and place a blurb in their public profile (or not).
  10. Never! I would really hate to mess up a good SL relationship :-)
  11. ignore

    I'm trying to ignore, but I keep thinking; "That's a nice "O" his name starts with." I'll try harder on the Ignore thing :-)
  12. sex expectations in SL

    This kinda goes back to "SL is different things to different people" For some, its an anonymous cybersex hookup place, a game. For others its like 3D Facebook. Still others are seriously looking for the love of their life. That's why its good to be clear on how YOU view it with potential partners.
  13. Jealousy in SL is it normal

    Unfortunately, SL is powered by human beings. Humans can be possessive butt-heads even in a virtual world, others can be careless with the feelings of others in ways they might hesitate to in RL - because they consider SL a "game". Consider, a large segment of SL Residents have a large chance of being like me or "as I used to be"; someone who's geeky, sometimes relates better with hardware or stuffed animals than with people, someone who had an awkward teen-phase and was not very people-savvy. People who have not had a lot of experience with having to "move on" in Real Life (socially awkward) often fail to consider that they *can* move on from a displeasing relationship in SL, and drama ensues after someone goes all Stalky. It gets better, but that happens when we learn to look for SL companionship in places other than the digital singles bar :-) I like singles bars, but when I go there its not a "long term relationship" I'm after......... (that means what you think it means).
  14. I've been part of a Poly Family before, and it worked best when we structured it the least. Poly works when -everyone- wants to participate and has access-times that work for all the members. Our Family had one member who was on mostly in the US morning-to lunch timeframe, Me; who was on in lunch-to-afternoon and a Third who was on noon-to-evening. We all over-lapped at mid-day and had two or three "couples" slots on any given day; so no one was routinely left out. I loved it and we lasted for about three years until one of us passed in RL. I miss it :-)
  15. A simple thought

    I love the sentiment of the Original Post; unfortunately there are many who would take that lovely concept and try to drag it back into the mud. All avatars start out equal, but there are still way too many people who *insist* on knowing whats behind the avatar as a pre-condition to friendship. Still for many of us, SL is a great opportunity to meet and interact across the boundaries of race, gender, age, Identity and other factors in ways we never could IRL. I love it that my "leveled-up in years" self can mingle with much younger people and exchange both *bad* humor and ideas without the stigma that both sides usually assign to the other because of the numbers on a calendar. Some of my best conversations in SL have been with people who entirely missed the Elvis Era, and thats been amazing. So I love your post; lets keep trying to make it fully real :-)
