SL is an extension of my rl in so many ways. My rl mother is in SL. My best friend is in SL. My best friend met the person she is with in RL in SL.... the list is endless. For a long time one of my best friends moved to England. 1st thing she did was get an SL account. We all had parcels on the same sim. It was surreal. I have also met friends in SL that have become a part of my everyday life for 6+ years now. I neer knew SL would change my life the way it has.
