  1. Only one, in both; RL blended with SL, and ended in RL. Dating isn't really a thing for us Demisexuals, and it's common for many to only have maybe one or two long-term relationships in a lifetime. In the meantime, I'm happily focusing on myself.
  2. Had some experience with MU Online, Guild Wars, and one fighter jet/sci-fi/anime MMO that I forget the name of now.
  3. I can't say how it may affect my general spending--other than that I may have to be more frugal in SL, than I have previously been. I only have a LH on Belli, no owned or rented land outside of it. But it's one of the reasons why I decided to take advantage of the discount for advanced prepayment/renewal a month or so ago. I have until 20/06/2021 to see how things go with the £.
  4. Yes--and for the same reasons. In fact, when I first joined and ran the LL viewer (we're talking 1.19), I don't think the mini map was open for me straight away. I was a little annoyed/confused at first, since I had been used to having one from playing video games--until I figured out the keyboard shortcut.
  5. I think my New Years Resolution will be 11520x2160. Because I've been rocking 5760x1080 for too long.
  6. I don't have any preferred pronouns in RL or SL, and I identify as non-binary IRL. People will use whichever they feel makes sense, and I'm okay with that. I've had people use both female and male pronouns IRL too--depending on how I've presented myself, and having a somewhat "androgynous" voice. Whether jokingly, or seriously, I cannot be certain, because my ASD gets in the way of interpreting things. I take things literally, and don't get "jokes", 75% of the time. In either case, I'm not fazed.
  7. I'm not. I abandoned around four houseboats before settling in the most NW point for awhile. Until Squishy Pickle was opened. I moved over, abandoning two there before settling on where I am currently (Sirinial).
  8. I think one of the most powerful tools has typically been "word of mouth", and that's how I heard of it. Probably around 2004, through a friend. They frequented SL with someone else they knew, back then. Eventually, they just stopped bothering. If I recall, back then, it cost to teleport from Telehub to Telehub, and that was one of a few things they found to be off-putting. I didn't have an internet connection at the time. Time jump to around mid 2007, I was in an LDR, and used to play Guild Wars--wasn't particularly my thing, but it was something that "we" could do at the time. After awhile, and a bit of brainstorming to bridge things a bit better, I remembered SL. So this avi was born on January 31st 2008. There was a hiatus between 2014-2017, for one or two reasons. Barely see ads for SL these days. I've seen Sansar get pushed a lot on FB, various other sites--and of course, anything related to Star Trek. It seems, since its launch, there's a Sansar booth every year at Star Trek Las Vegas (not that I've ever been able to attend).
  9. I can't remember my first home in SL. For one reason or another, I moved around a lot between 2008-2012, never staying in one place for too long. But also, I make it a personal rule not to visit or check out old rentals/homes that I may remember. Although after only becoming a premium member last year, I do find myself opening the map to see what's become of plots I may have owned/sold. It's oddly saddening if/when I see them reduced to nothing but abandoned land, and I can't figure out exactly why. With that said, I didn't have a LH until Bellisseria. I'd often make the trip in a yacht to Salt Breeze or Whitecap, and was there when the gates opened. Settled and held onto a houseboat, until Squishy Pickle was released. I remember one or two I abandoned in the SW, along with my old Houseboat in the NW--just because the names are so catchy. But again, I make it a rule to not go snooping...only ocassionally passing them if I'm in the area.
  10. Terms such as introversion and extroversion weren't part of my vocabulary until some years ago, after a RL/SL relationship broke down, and I had to "find" myself. But I am an introvert (similarly forced to be an extrovert), and do have a formal Dx of Asperger's (2014)--it's through Torley Linden's video on the topic that I came to the conclusion, and decided to seek an assessment. So SL, for a long time, was a testbed for social interaction/skills. Although, after a hiatus, and I've been back since 2017--I'm about as introverted in SL now, as I am IRL. I keep myself to myself, but I don't intentionally ignore people either. What annoys slightly me, though, is how misunderstood introversion is. In facebook groups, I've seen a lot of people who think that some traumatic event or upbringing made them an introvert. Also, often mistakingly conflated with shyness. It's neurological--you're either born an introvert, extrovert, or ambivert (that weird middle ground). While on the topic of personality types. I discovered MBTI along the road/journey of self-discovery. Although the validity and usefulness is debatable, I'm supposedly an INTJ.
