  1. This is my personal favorite...

I was going to say "do unto others as you would have them do unto you" and "if you can't say somthin nice, don't say nothin at all" but I think Amethyst said it better. The only thin we can take responsibility for is our own actions and reactions.
  3. Its beautiful, but likely heavily photoshopped to achieve the shadows and shading. Your best bet is to send an IM or notecard to the shop owner which expresses your admiration for her/his creativity in creating the look and (assuming you have purchased whatever they are selling in the ad) asking where you can purchase the skin, hair and shape to complete the look. That is your best bet but don't be surprised if it doesn't work, the shape, skin and/or hair might be custom made for the look. The creator might be unwilling to share the info, or the photo might have been so altered in photoshop that there isn't anything in sl to compare.
  4. I would think you already have a child avi in your inventory (that you use to design the clothing) so why not use yourself and a few cute animations and accessories, I would think it would be cheaper than hiring a model in the long run.
  5. I found many of my personal favorite blogs out of date (like me) but you can keep your pulse on many aspects of sl (art, news, etc) at this http://nwn.blogs.com/ Beyond that use the search within sl, for every interest you listed I think there will be many possibilities, type an interest into search... such as "lawyers" and then narrow that to groups and no doubt you might find some kindred spirits... there is a group called "Impossible IRL" I would hazard to guess that for anything you can think of that intrigues or interests you there is a group in sl devoted to it. Have fun exploring!
  6. Me too.... ME TOO! I am fascinated with building in sl. When I first started in sl and got my first rental I started to build my own furniture, later I bought and sold land, but my joy was building houses for myself or for difficult parcels (such as sloped lots, or oddly shaped parcels) we were selling, or low prim houses for 512's. I built a couple of custom houses for clients and that was fun too. Since sculpties and now mesh I feel out of touch with current building techniques but I still love to create, I use the basic cubes and many of my own textures Its the only reason I still have land in sl, Every so often I like to scrape it off and start new. Would love to chat, brainstorm and/or collaborate on projects with other builders, creators.
  7. Definitely file an abuse report if he has been verbally abusive or threathened you in any way. In addition, you may need to mute him, delete him from your friends/contacts list, delete anything from your inventory that he gave you (it could have a tracking or listening script if you rez or wear it). If he doesn't leave you alone after all that you may have to leave groups that you both belong to and worse case scenario create an alt that has no... and I MEAN NO connection to your existing main account. Only you can decide how seriously malicious this guy is, just don't be blinded by sweet talk. take care
  8. /me sighs... I never have been partnered in SL (no doubt due to my anti-partnering stance) but nonetheless your story is both romantic, tragic and heart warming... I think there's a novel - no series waiting to be wriiten, think about it, seriously....
  9. Like any LDR the danger is that you are both on your "best behaviour" when you are together and that the fantasy and intensity of the relationship won't last in the long run. Only you can answer that question, take off your rose colored glasses and really look at the man, trust what he tells you about himself (does he label himself as "insecure" or "jealous" or "commitment-phobic" - these are warning signs), Be cautious but be open, be ready to change your life to be with him (either here in the states or there with him). Meet his friends and pay close attention to what they say about him (do they respect his character or hope that you will rescue him from himself?). Are you excited to introduce him to your family and friends or worried they won't "understand him"... Its both harder and easier to be in a long distance relationship but sooner or later you will have to commit and when/if you do, do so with open eyes, every relationship is a compromise and requires commitment, know what you are getting into in advance. xoxo good luck to you and your love
  10. This is my read on the subject... I have a rather old fashioned definition of dating... a "date" happens when someone asks you out and you accept, they plan an activity or excursion to be shared. Dating is more traditional and suggests a bit of courtship, pursuit, etc. It does not mean you are having sex with the person but it doesn't exclude that possibility either. Dating does not imply exclusivity, i.e.. You can date more than one person at a time without being a **bleep**, I think "Dating" to me means more of a social interaction vs. sexual. Of course "being on a date" can be a euphemism for many less innocent activities in SL or RL. If you are "pleasuring" or "hooking up" then to most people that would be a bit beyond "dating" - its either casual sex or the next step if you are seeing them frequently. However, the key is to be honest with your partners, if you are not looking for a relationship let them know, right away and be honest about what you are looking for. Don't friend a casual hook up if you never want to see them again, but if you meet someone you would like to connect with just tell them you like them and you would appreciate their company on a casual basis... (i.e. you can't demand their presence whenever you are both online - but if you are both free would enjoy their company)
  11. Hi Giselle, Finding friends in sl is similar to rl. First figure out what your interests are and what you like to do... dance? shop? create? Then find groups that are focused on those kind of activities. Join these groups and you will soon have a group of friends that you have a lot in common with.
  12. Try going into the appearance editor and slightly tweaking the eye size or eye bulge settings, it may be that whatever shape you are wearing is not matching the skin or eyes you are wearing. Save your existing shape before you start tweaking on things so you can always go back to it.
  13. Just know that you can't take that personally, follow all the good advice here and know that it has happened to all of us. When it first happens it is such a shock that you don't know what to do, later you learn to get the name of the person/object and can choose whether or not to file an abuse report. In my first few months I was caged one time and attacked at my home with flying saw blades, it freaked me out but I learned to deal with it - and also with sandbox griefers... find a nice quiet one or rent a place for your home where you can rez your own purchases. Good luck to you and enjoy sl
  14. Step One: Decide you are worthy and stop whining Step Two: Realize that the world does not revolve around you and reach out to people in a meaningful way. What I mean is start thinking about how you approach conversations - are you anxious to talk about yourself and your issues, or are you genuinly curious about the people you meet and their interests and/or issues? Step Three: Is your "picker" broken? I have met way too many people that invest way too much energy in people/relationships that were doomed to begin with - set your standards high and learn to read people and many will tell you what you need to know without realizing it... if you listen closely and don't discount what they say ("oh he didn't mean that" or "she was just kidding") people will reveal their true selves, pay attention to it.
  15. Well, you won long ago... So this post seems pointless but if its winning you #points or #kudos or some other mysterious twitter thingys (I don't twit) - then YAY more power to you!
