  2. Hello there my name is Viper and I am a role-player here on second life since 2018. I am seeking to make friends of all sorts and for those who use Bloodlines to roleplay with or learn the system with its improvements over the years. I am a polyamorous type person and I hope that is fine with you. I do not bite or attack in bloodlines and use the system for mainly roleplaying purposes. I am also a female in real life that uses a male avatar / roleplay character it is because what I feel most comfortable with. If you are interested in becoming my friend please contact me on second life. There is more that meets the eye with me and I am a pretty cool person once you get to know me. I know bloodlines has a past of being bad but I want to make it fun for everyone to enjoy on second life. You do not have to be my friend to join bloodlines if you just want to get to know me and hangout I am cool with it.
  3. I am looking for a person for communication and joint pleasant pastime in the SL. If we succeed in something more, I'm not against starting a family. If you're wondering, you can find me in the world: slavicbeauty
  4. Second Life has been my escape since 2014 and it sure has progressed and changed over the years. I've recently decided to come back to see what I can get myself into and one of the things I noticed is. It seems really hard to make friends, or find people who have similar interests. I use to roleplay in communities like Giano Estates as a child avi and it seemed as if when you were outside and you see someone you can go up and say hi. Now it seems like people like being huddled in their houses with their own cliques. I've been back as a child avatar and it is easier to make friends as a child as more opportunities arise for meeting others. Schools, dance academies, camps, etc. Those really help in getting you to meet others and becoming fast friends. Now I am trying my hand at an adult/teen and I'm not seeing nowhere in sight of a way to meet people. I see there is some High Schools, roleplay communities of that sort. But how do you genuinely make friends as a avatar that is older then 12 years old? I miss having the friends you bond well with, you can try your luck at being up all night because you're playing skip-po or just enjoying one another company. With that being said I'd like to know what you guys think and if there is any helpful advice of where I can start my journey in making friendships.
  5. Hello I am looking for friends I am into various things here on SL and would like to meet others.
  6. What is Second Life to you? I have no doubt what I have to say will be very unpopular among some of you and then others will appreciate it. I pose the question; What is Second Life to you? Is SL just a game that you log into when you're bored or during free time? Is it a means by which to make a living? Is it a place to connect with friends from all over? Is it a venue to stream your art, writings, music? Who are the people in SL to you? Are they simply avatars you greet and interact with while in world and when you unplug they cease to exist until you log in again? Are they co-workers? Are they friends you met online and now have a real life connection with? Are they real life friends you introduced the game to? Are they fans of your art, writings, music? It's important that you have a solid answer to these questions in my opinion, and that those you interact with have an understanding of how you see SL because it allows them the choice of how much they choose to interact with you and how close they choose to become with you. Because if SL is simply a game to you and those in it are simply avatars, is it fair then to allow others to form an attachment to you? Likewise, if SL is a means by which you also connect with your real world work or activities; those you interact with in world should understand that you take it more seriously than some before they get involved. For instance, if you hire someone to work at your venue and you expect them to conduct themselves as a respectable employee and not show up dressed as a flying monkey; this is something they need to know from the start. How about relationships? How do you see your relationships in Second Life? I know this is a question that is often asked. I don't want to duplicate any previous articles; instead I want to point out that even though Second Life is considered a “game”, it is so much more to many. For some it's their everything. Take for example someone who is bed bound; SL becomes a means for them to have some kind of life because in SL there are no physical limitations. How about the elderly woman who lives alone; perhaps in SL she's young and beautiful again and re-living her life the way she wishes she could in her real life. Maybe there's an aspiring singer/song writer who just can't get that big break in the real world, SL allows them to be a rock star and perform for hundreds every week and even have a manager. All of these interactions form bonds and friendships and romantic interests. What happens when someone decides that SL is no longer for them? This happened to me several years ago. It interfered with my real life and through an interaction with someone in SL I was victim of an abusive relationship. Without going into details; let me just say I decided for my own mental well being, I left to tend to my body and my mind and my life. I was gone for several years. I came back when Covid19 forced many of us to remain indoors and disconnected from those around us. But I came back with caution, I told myself. My intent was to bring my real world publication into SL; which I did. I've hired a staff, created a venue and obtained land. Through all of this I have formed new friendships and connected with old ones. Some of those friendships are carried over into my real life via the connections of Facebook and Discord. Some of those friendships go even further in that we have exchanged phone numbers and even snail mail addys. If I were to leave SL again; I know that those I have created a real life connection with will at least remain in communication. Unfortunately those I only have an SL connection with will literally vanish like turning off the switch of a light. This brings me to the reason for writing this article. For those of you who are able to keep your relationships strictly in SL; why do you do it? More importantly; HOW do you do it? How are you able to disconnect your heart and mind from making a human connection? Some would say this is narcissism. I can think of but a few reasons why someone would want to keep their SL connections strictly in SL. Perhaps, someone's SL life is complete fantasy. And I'm not saying there's anything wrong with that. It is after all a gaming platform. But, perhaps everything about their SL life is fiction. Perhaps, someone is married in their real life yet having a completely alternate relationship in SL. Perhaps, someone is a real life celebrity just wanting to hang out with regular folks. Yes, it happens. Then there is the person who doesn't have anything to hide, isn't married, isn't famous, they just simply don't care to let anyone in. They keep SL relationships in SL because when they decide to “ghost” them or disappear or block; the person they've abandoned will have no recourse and no way to connect again. Yes, they could create an alt and I know many do this, but the original relationship is lost forever. This is what I have trouble understanding. Why would anyone want to do this? It's hurtful, it's rude, it's insensitive and it's selfish. If this is your intent, then you have no right to form any kind of bond or relationship that causes the other to care about you because you aren't giving them the choice of allowing themselves to connect or not. So again, I ask you; What is Second Life to YOU? What do you get out of it? What do you put into it? Second Life is unique in that it is nearly entirely user created content. WE; avatar by avatar, create the virtual world we live in and it is as big if not much bigger than the actual world we live in as it is only limited by our imaginations. The places we can go, the things we can do; it's all so wonderful. There are very dark sides to SL as well and to each his own for wanting to explore that. But again, I ask; what is Second Life to YOU? What do you think it is to those you are connected to? Do you think they see it as you do? Have you asked them? What happens when someone unintentionally crosses that boundary you have set up and they go from an SL only acquaintance to a somewhat if not wholly real life friend. How about those who start out as Second Life romantic partners and end up real life married? Still... what about those who's real life marriages end because of a Second Life relationship? It's all so complicated isn't it? Those lines get blurred. Is it ok if they get blurred? If it's not ok, why is it not ok? As I said I was in SL for many years and left and only came back when Covid forced me to shut down my real life business. Will I stay? For how long? What happens to the relationships I've formed when I'm gone? Let's talk briefly about those who pass away. A couple of times this year I received notice of someone I knew passing away. I only knew them by their avatar yet they still impacted my life and their passing impacted my emotions, perhaps not on the same scale; but it still did. I mean no disrespect by what I am about to say, but have you ever wondered how many avatars pass away yet the real life person that was behind them still lives? Maybe they wanted a fresh start and created a new avatar. Maybe like real life their SL became so complicated and busy that they wanted out. It's much easier to “kill off” a fake life than it is a real one. I am not saying the folks I knew did that, nor am I saying everyone does that; but does it ever cross your mind that it happens? That maybe, just MAYBE the person you hear of that passed away that never had any real life contact with anyone; that just maybe they never really died and yet here you are having a whole memorial for them and they may be standing in your midst observing it all. Morbid to think of, I realize; but I bet it happens. What about those who really die? The only connection YOU had with them was through SL? So you can only grieve in world and not with their real life family and friends because to those folks you probably don't exist. Yet, you experience a real loss. Real or not, when an avatar passes away you experience loss. Their presence in your world real and imaginary is no longer. You log in, you can no longer see them online. Their IM's go unanswered. Their notices forever capped. You no longer see them dancing at events or hanging out in the clubs or favorite hot spots. Real or not their presence is definitely missed, no matter how you think of Second Life. Each avatar has a real live human behind it. Whether you want to admit that or not, whether that's something you accept or not. Each avatar has a real live human being with a heart beat creating all the interactions that you have with them in world. Our avatars have brains now and I swear they look as though they breathe. My hope is that this reminds you that although you may be looking at a cartoon version of someone or a completely fictional creation, the one controlling it is very real. Your actions, your words have a real impact on everyone that you touch in SL whether you like it or not. If you are not mature enough to accept that and the responsibility that comes with that; then you should not allow yourself to connect with anyone in a game as complicated and immersed as Second Life. Through Second Life we have the ability to touch the lives of people we may never meet in real life, folks from all walks of life and from far away. It's amazing, but it's also an awesome responsibility that I think too many take far too lightly. At the very least, choose your words and your interactions with caution and with kindness. You truly never know who it is that you are really interacting with. Perhaps you are befriending a true celebrity or maybe it's just a girl/guy from your own neighborhood. It shouldn't matter. Be kind. Don't intentionally set out to do harm and never ever demean someone's existence by thinking of them as “just an avatar”.
  7. Hello my original name is KiLL4ViX3N and my new tag name is showing FELINE9LIVES .I love my virtual kitties and i share in the 9lives ,that is assumed or were led to believe. I love SL but not a social butterfly who feels comfortable in real crowds or SL crowds. I'm more of a wall flower who observes,dances and enjoys music. I would love to meet new friends. I am bi-sexual and hoping to meet my SL partner in love and my bestfriend. Message me or IM me. Avatar must be updated and you must care about your avi appearance. PLEASE. I do know what i want in AND we all have preferences. Thank you and hope to meet you all soon. I am not perfect and i do have flaws. Thank you for pointing them out. I do believe love has no boundaries and everyone deserves to find love. I should have took more time and thought before writing this. I apologize if i offended anyone . May we all be kinder to each other .
  8. “Discuss the best ways to connect to other Residents.” …..................... Last night, after a good meal and two glasses of wine, (one white, one red), I was in a relaxed and contented state of mind, and my relaxed RL mind was reflecting on the intricacies of SL and its many layers. We see a regular stream of friend requests here in the forums, and yeah, I get that in world it can be hard to forge lasting and real friendships. But occasionally this happens and when it does, it can be both long lasting and fulfilling. I’ve seen this even in the short time I’ve been around. But there’s another way, and it’s here in these forums. By engaging in discussion here, connections are made with others and sometimes those connections will strengthen and evolve, especially where there is common ground. My own motives for posting here were to seek help, and I was overwhelmed by the kindness and acceptance I experienced as someone very new. This only encouraged me to become more involved with the forums, and it has become very much a parallel world to my in-world SL. I love this community and how it extends into the virtual world through the Forum Cartel and the Breakfast Club. It’s my go to place of choice when I get a few minutes on my phone. OK, at times it can get a bit heated, but every forum I’ve ever been part of has been similar. I don’t engage in ping pong posting simply because I’ve seen elsewhere how it never ends well. But back to my original thinking..........here is the perfect place to engage with people, and get to know them. Then when you encounter their avi in world. You already know who they are and how they think. The vanity threads have been pivotal in how I’ve evolved in a short time, and a regular source of new ideas for outfits. They have also drawn together a group of people who share the obsessions of shopping, outfits, taking photos, and chatting endlessly. That would have been so hard to achieve just in world! Our Angels Group is only at the beginning, and has huge potential in the future! For me, this community is a fundamental part of my SL experience, and it has given me more friendships and fun than I’ve built up in world, although I also value my in world friends very highly. So a huge thank you to everybody who has ever given me any help or advice. Just thought it was worth saying! 😁
  9. I'm sorry if this has been asked before, I didn't find any posts when I searched. The question is, has anyone here been in a long term, more than mere friends, sl relationship like for 8 to 11 or even more years? Has sl created such strong bonds that it endures and can last a lifetime beyond the existence of this platform? Was it hard to keep it going or was it easy for you? Were there breaks in between? How did you make it last long? What was the circumstances of both parties, if you care to share those too if not that's alright. If it was purely online or if you got to see each other in the physical world. If it ended and why? How did you feel about it? Others with less than the specified number of years can answer too. The same questions can be applied to sl friendships. I'm asking because the longest sl relationship that I have heard of was 6 years. Mine has gone on for nearly as long as my avatar has been in world, which is three years and nine months. I tend to get attached with the people that I form deep friendships, romantic relationships with, investing a lot of time, care and emotion into them. The idea that it's going to end is rather devastating. This isn't a survey, I'm genuinely interested and hopeful that long term bonds such as friendships, companionship, or romantic relationships in sl do exist.
