    A Slice Of Heaven

    It was a few years ago, lasted for about four months, I guess, and was easily one of the happiest times of my life. I was a different person at Second Life than I am in real life. In some ways the difference was obvious. In some ways it was more subtle. I'm transgendered. That...

    I Fell In Love On Sl Too, But Now He's Gone and I'm Stuck Putting My Rl Back Together.

    I found my soul-mate on SL too. We are both married in RL and were honest with each other from the beginning. We didn't intend to fall so hard for each other but eventually started talking about ending our RL relationships and trying to make a go of this new love. Between the...

    Virtual Cheapskates & Hobo Love

    I think it's quite hypocritic to get married in both RL & SL, how some people can claim that they love their spouses and yet spend more time on the game with their SL partner than their RL partner. How I went about starting my Second Life was pretty much like any other...

    You Never Know Who You Can Meet

    I started SL in 2007 and ended up meeting someone who's incredibly important to me in my life. SL was (is) a great environment to completely free yourself of all physical and material distractions or complications. I stopped going in-world a few years ago now, but I remain in...
