  1. I think I posted a couple times, but Ceka went full boat attack mode. She was all over that bunch.
  2. We sent her over there on assignment. She was our anti-Redzone warrior ;-). ETA: type lag; I was referencing Selene's post about Ceka. "Well... you were pretty chatty at times on SLU. "
  3. It certainly isn't just 'foreign' men (what's foreign even mean, in a place like SL?) who exhibit the attitudes you describe. The US is littered with movements like the PUA, MRA, and Incel creeps (and if you don't know what those mean, lucky you!). Even without those extremes, there is no shortage of guys that somehow feel they have something owed them just because they're males, and you are the one owing. Might be an east/west thing in the US. My mother was always telling my sister to avoid East coast guys because they were much more patriarchal back there than out west where we lived. My sister, who now lives back east with her California-born husband, says there's truth to that attitude. In any case being independent, even fiercely so (that'd be the Scot side, I reckon), shouldn't be a hindrance to anybody worth a damn. It's a plus.
  4. I'm just piling on in case Mr. Wrong bothers to check the thread. I also thought it was a nicely written post, and I agree with Cindy, Callum, et al. You were doing things right, Enjolie.
  5. All that aside, what the heck is a BO BO DOLLY? All I could find on Google was this song, and it did nothing to illuminate the situation. The notes say the group only released one album; I'm not surprised.
  6. The thing about us being the Illuminati was supposed to be a secret, see? On a lighter note seeing the group name earlier today got me thinking of all that, and I still think the funniest bit of all was your courthouse beat reporter drama and subsequent thread (which of course got AR'd out of existence by humorless chumps).
  7. Yeah, well. Just make sure you don't re-ignite anything (speaking of combustion as we tangentially were). We'll all be kicking then ;-).
  8. Based on my ten years of being relatively clueless about Second Life, some thoughts. The bolded part marks you as different from the majority (probably the vast majority) of Second Life's would-be slaves. I'm pretty sure the majority here are exploring their fantasies (at best) and/or looking mostly for sexual gratification. You actually know what you're doing and what you want; I should think that would make you something of a prize to discerning masters. Unfortunately, there are probably as many—if not more—wannabe masters here than there are wannabe slaves. Finding a master who actually knows how to take on that role's responsibilities and give you what you're seeking is probably going to take some time. I think you're going about it the right way: crawl up the SL learning curve at least until it starts to level off a bit and then go from there. Don't worry a bit about lack of social networking or gaming experience: doesn't really matter much. Nor does your age. Good luck to you.
  9. More to the point of the thread, there've been a couple of discussions here lately regarding introverts, Tarina. The opinion I took away from reading and commenting in those was that SL might have a higher percentage of introverts than RL. That's almost certainly true of this forum: it's generally assumed that lurkers (who are very much a part of the forum) outnumber posters, and even among the posters introverts may be the majority. Turns out Second Life is a really great way to sneer at your shyness and just speak right up, especially inworld (since you can always poof if you need to). Works for me, anyway ;-).
  10. Awww :-). I'm sure you'll be fine, you're showing a lot of promise. Of course you did start off with maybe the worst pickup line in the history of introductions, so just the fact you were able to make a good start at redeeming yourself (while demonstrating an admirable willingness to take the heat) counts in your favor. As far as 'having a girlfriend', that takes time, even in SL, unless you're just pretending. You can start by asking someone to dance, maybe. You have to work at it; you can't just assign someone to be your "girlfriend". Relationships here aren't that much different than relationships in RL; most of the time you kind of have to grow into them. You'll know you have a girlfriend when you show up someplace familiar without her and someone asks, "Where's your girlfriend?".
  11. First, some background. I watch next to no TV. Seriously. For one thing there's no cable out here in the boonies so we get what's broadcast. I can't handle the commercials. Plus there's hardly anything I really enjoy on. I also don't watch a whole lot of movies. Among other things that means I'm very ill-informed about a lot of movies and most television shows. And the casts of same. First time I learned about Jason Momoa was when Cindy started a conversation about him in the Forum and several people chimed in. With pictures. I thought, "Whoa", or something very much like that. But I didn't think too much about it. Except that I not too long ago caved in and bought into Amazon Prime. As it happens I noticed they have five seasons of "Stargate Atlantis". I finally decided to give it a try in spite of the fact I thought the original "Stargate" movie was a clunker even though it had Kurt Russell and Jaye Davidson. Imagine my surprise at stumbling across you know who up there. So I see what Cindy and all the rest of you meant. It's kind of unfair, really. I mean the guy's seven feet tall. He's built like a brick...well, brick. His voice is awesome. And with all of that, he's got those incredible eyes! Like I said, it's kind of unfair. Where was I? Oh yeah. This thread. I got here late today and missed the whole thing. I started at the OP as I always do and read through it. When I hit Page FOUR (we're now on Page 9) I laughed because I thought, "Oh boy, wait until the rest of 'em see that!". I have to tell you that you all did not disappoint. You guys cracked me up. Most forum fun I've had in a while. The bad news is that I'm on Episode 6 of Season 5, and five seasons is all Amazon's got. So I'm almost done with the whole thing. I have to admit that in spite of some really embarrassingly dumb science/physics mistakes I enjoy the series and I'll be sorry to see it end.
  12. I'm going to ruin the effect by posting this, Clover, but it really is a hoot to open up the forum page and see you twerking away in the 'most recent post' column :-).
