Are You Lonely In Your Second Life?

Is Your Second Life Lonely

How’s your Second Life going? Are you in a social whirl of parties, clubs etc? Are you perhaps employed in world? Or are you, like myself, a little bit of an introvert? Some days I’m whizzing from shopping event to shopping event, others I am holed up on my platform taking photos and then blogging. Mostly though I am rather lonely. A single pringle but not ready to mingle. Occasionally I venture forth to explore a new sim, or actually have an urge to seek others out – not very often for sure. If Player is around we spend time together chatting or playing games – but we both lead busy real lives and time spent together is less these days.

I’m exceptionally fortunate to have a second life best friend (you all know her as Zan) We write to each other every day, we blog together, look at homes together (obsessed much?) and even live together and share land – my Second Life would be much poorer without Zan in it.

Today was one of those “go forth” days. I had seen a few places in the destination guide that looked like they might be promising photo back grounds. So off I trudged – not expecting or even really wishing to find company. The thing is, if you stick around your home/office/platform – you wont experience anything or anyone? I landed at the first location and spotted a chap sitting in a deck chair by the landing point. Of course I hurried off so as not to spoil his view, and walked up the stairs away from him. He messaged me, I was tempted to ignore his very kind hello and enquiry about how I was liking the beautiful location…but I responded in kind. You never know someone until you actually converse with them. Yes, it might have been one of those awkward “A/S/L” messages – however it wasn’t. We decided to sit at a table and pass the time of day. I enjoyed the easy company and pleasant chit chat immensely and readily accepted a friends request with a view to possibly meeting up again at some point.

I know Second Life can be a barrage of mixed messages and lost connections – but – take a chance, be open to new connections and show a positive mentality to those that cross our path. You never know they might be your next friend or dance partner ❤

Happy Monday & Thank you Marvin !

  1. AWWW that’s so nice!!!! Cheered me up to no end! Faith is definitely a social butterfly while I on the other hand am an SL loner. I “wander as lonely as a cloud” but that’s by choice. It’s just more a case of my time to SL is limited or I just want to switch off from RL. However I 100% always help any noob/lost person I come across.
