    I've been in and out of Second Life

    since 2006. I'm now out after falling in love as you can get in a virtual world and realizing that I can't love in RL and SL. My thoughts in RL would drift to those people in the virtual world. It's been almost a year and my heart still breaks thinking of them and that one...

    A Story of Sex, Love, Creativity, Money and Power...

    Second Life is a virtual reality game from Linden Labs. For a while it became such a part of my life that I was on it more than I was living my real life, which in those times became known simply as 'RL', as apposed to the game, 'SL'. Early on it was difficult to play. There...

    Romantic Escape

    I joined the world of Second Life last year.  At first it was an escape from the problems of the real world, a place where all things were possible.  Then I met the most wonderful girl.  We've shared many adventures, had our share of ups and downs, but I wouldn't...

    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...

    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...

    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...
