In a month, I will be 6 years old in Second Life. It just floors me how fast time has flown. As I get older (in both RL and SL) I keep thinking about days gone by. Oh to be young again… LOL
When I first joined Second Life, I was young and… well young. Haha I explored a lot more and dated A LOT more. It has definitely been a wonderous roller coaster of a journey.
One thing that I keep asking myself, “what happened to me?” I have definitely changed. Have I grown up? Matured? Become smarter?
When I used to come into Second Life, I was less lonely. I had a great group of friends I would hang out with almost nightly. I had a couple boyfriends (not at the same time…LOL) who I couldn’t wait to talk to. Life was wonderful. I felt like someone special. Somehow I lost this ‘loving’ feeling.
Since I started thinking about all of this this past week, I have gone into Second Life a bit more. I decided to go dancing and meet people. I thought this would help me feel less lonely and more beautiful in RL.
I am at Franks Jazz, right now. There are a lot of people here. I’m sure people just like me, looking for company, a dance partner, someone to connect with.
When I stopped by a couple days ago, I met a really nice guy. We spent about an hour having a really great chat. I felt intelligent, beautiful, witty and myself. He said I was delightful. Sitting here at my desk, I was smiling. No one in RL has ever called me delightful before. No one has ever called me beautiful. (Well no one who is flirting anyway). It felt really really good. I missed that.
