I will start off by saying, holy crap, I didn't realize there were this many users on Second Life still. Anyways, what am I talking about here? Off and on I'm seeking friends and family, and regardless of how much a person "falls in love" with me, they always somehow flake out on me, and I continue treading on through Second Life by myself in abandoned sims, occasionally messaging people in my "friends" list something along the lines of a joke or "Hi how are you" since they won't bother letting me go any further than that. It may sound sad being by myself in empty sims all of the time, but I don't mind it for the most part, I enjoy exploring and seeing what people have built over the years. But it is, growing tiring and greater in scale and numbers of me getting flaked. I will respond to someone's post of looking for a friend and or family, tell me a life story about how they're sad and all this crap and how it would be perfect for us to do this and that. Annoyingly, they will avoid a meet-up 99% of the time, and keep me waiting for days because "something came up" and never say what. Then after days of me waiting, and starting the chat over and over again, they will eventually say: "Oh I just did this and that, or my girlfriend is having a baby, I'm going to delete my post, sorry" Just, what the heck man. You pour out your life story to me and tell me you like me as a friend or whatever and then you don't have the time to even bother looking at me? Oh please. This has partially to do with the anonymous factor of the internet, and they can cower away from any hint of dedication and keep being afraid of it or whatever. This is just something that's bothering me, even replying to my posts in-world IM and then flaking out is just ridiculous. And finally, another "problem" people seem to have is they get their jimmies rustled over me being a PS1-era looking person. I understand they want 2000000% immersion in a software with already arguably dated graphics mixed in with low res textures and models that aren't well designed from creators and some UHD characters that do look nice, but CRIPPLE computers because they have subdivision maxed. Anyways, I'm not always low res but I prefer it, it's not even that bad really, I have fingers and a fairly nice appearance graphically. In a way people being so incredibly against stylized low res mesh avatars is slight discrimination. That is an insanely strong word for what I'm trying to say but it's all I can think of at the moment. And it in a way destroys the whole idea of what a family is. You can't pick and choose your family in reality, and I know you technically are in Second Life. But family is about loving the person for who they are, not by their looks or quirks. Family is about balance and caring for each other regardless of faults. But, this being Second Life, 99% of users could care less. One lady told me that I "look noob" because of my low resolution nature. I could tell she's not even SL savvy, but I knew what she was trying to say, I look low res compared to most avatars. Anyways, just annoying garbage I'm dealing with and decided to share, feel free to share your thoughts on getting stood up etc. I hope I can get a family together one day in SL, my previous one shoved me out because they had new friends and just quite frankly didn't give a damn anymore.
