  1. Ugh. This topic is still on the mind. Maybe there's someone out there that struggles with understanding this stuff too? The old system. Beginner experience: shared everything with no regard for personal safety Intermediate experience: eventually learned to save the above for friends alone Advanced experience: A. Just sl. Entirety of a friendship exists within the confines of the virtual world. Maybe (maybe not) sharing of rl (possibly voice and pics in world), but no contact on the outside. B. Mixed lives. RL first names, socials, photos, voice and video chat.
  2. Hi Fairy. Love your animal crossing photo. Are you playing new horizons atm?
  3. Used to hop on voice or cam anytime someone asked. Even if we had just met. Umm. Realized that wasn't the smartest idea after multiple gross encounters. Decided it was best to only do that for friends. Used to tell people details about my rl and invited them into it for years. Until I met two sl people diagnosed with cluster b issues at the same time. Allowing them access irl... Oh how naive I was. Realized that was a huge mistake and regret it to this day. Maybe it can happen again in the future, but for now I'm too anxious from the last experience to make sl friends again. Much les
  4. I was introduced to sl by a rl high school ex girlfriend. At a young age she began having children irl, and no longer had time for sl. Tried to bring in a different rl ex girlfriend and two rl friends. They couldn't grasp the magic of sl and left. Reversed. Two sl best friends became rl best friends. We've met in person multiple times and text everyday. One sl girlfriend became a rl girlfriend. The sl to rl people lost the magic of sl years ago and left. I haven't bothered to do any crossovers since.
  5. Oh no. Gotta eat my words. I've been a silent lurker of the forums. Off and on for a few years. I enjoy reading what others post. Most of the time. This is my preferred way to people. Nothing against bagnu personally. Simply her threads create many arguments. Needlessly. Some people have been upset to the point of leaving the forums. That's wrong. Even though I abhor attention and do my best to avoid it at all costs, I had to crawl out of my cave and speak my mind on this matter. A lot of people are lonely. Including me. That's the reality of life. No amount of loneliness is a p
  6. Region settings for places of interest. Places paris 2 for editing and decorating. Blackskymoon to give my eyes a break.
  7. That requires empathy and genuine remorse for hurting others. Which is absent. "Actually, no. I am who I am. There is the ignore....." "I'm me. I deal with consequences, and no one will change me. Period Ever. End of story lol!!!" She stirs up drama for personal enjoyment. "I help people live out their sexual fantasies here, (and make them feel human if they are RL disabled). In RL what I am would be considered immoral. In SL I feel that I'm morally doing the right thing!!!" "None of my clients have ever admitted to having any sort of disability. I'm going
  8. No one should allow cheap slurs of any kind to be used as acceptable lingo. Allies are important. While some autistic people are eloquent enough to speak for themselves, I'm not one of them. I greatly appreciate Amina's input, and all of the valid points she made. Thank you, Amina. You said everything I wish I could've said.
  9. You look like the love child of Chloe and Max from Life is Strange.
  10. People won't keep their distance from me at the grocery store. Almost had a panic attack over it today.
  11. Hi Syrup. Everyone deserves to feel like they belong somewhere. I hope you find your tribe.
  12. I have ASD. Sensory dysregulation and stimming affects the way I appear in the real world. Last year in sl I started experimenting with wearing headphones and sunglasses on occasion. Just like rl. It's been so much fun finding animations (stims) to occupy my bento hands too. Though in previous years all I wanted was to pass for normal in sl. There was a big struggle between how I wished to appear, and who I really am. Now I'm direct about being a weirdo. Progress. :3 Thank you for the topic.
  13. Time can reveal a lot. Are they reliable and consistent? Do their words and actions align?
  14. Banlines are tacky. It's nice of you to care about them. A security orb would solve your problem. You can whitelist your people. There's no need to engage intruders since the orb gives an automated message. I personally add neighbors that are connected to my parcels as well. Just in case they accidentally step over the property line or even want to look around. Ymmv.
  15. 700-800 for a 2-3 room skybox. More if landscaping is needed.
