I updated the Clams as to the latest, that I actually DID get contacted, but that I’d have to pay 550L to buy 5 tokens so my dating days were basically over before they started because I’m too cheap to spend that. He did write back, surprisingly, giving me his SL name and suggesting we meet. Or in this case, the 0L donation that was to pay for me to get a date so I sent the IM and accepted the teleport and thus began my first Second Life blind date.Being the friends they are, I suddenly had the money. This is getting long now, if you want to read about how the date went, the rest is behind the spoiler…'I might have ended up in a bathtub full of ice with my kidney missing.I might have ended up in a bathtub full of ice with my kidney missing.I spent so many years on roleplay sims and partnered that I don’t actually know a lot about the current dating scene in Second Life and I decided it was time to find out.Sure, I could stand around which ever dance or romance sim comes up first in search hoping someone talks to me, but when I set my mind to do something, I go all out.Many of the check box type questions to describe yourself, and what you were looking for, were easy enough, but both the short free text intro box and the longer description of yourself once people click your profile was much, much harder.
So I showed up in a romper, no makeup or jewellery, and flats, my chill out clothes, and he pronounced me adorable. We chatted for a few, commented on the coincidence that we both used the word dorky to describe ourselves in our Avmatch profiles, and then the challenge was on. I swear, only in Second Life is accidentally getting in a lewd position and trying to explain that it was an accident a risk on a first date. Him: Do you know how hard I’m trying not to kiss you. We didn’t make a plan to see each other again, though in fairness I do have this whole “no promises or expectations” rule which prevents me from making plans, but we did exchange friend requests.
I don’t like to voice and I won’t send RL pictures.
I’m not even looking for an SL relationship, just casual dating. I don’t read text speak so I’m looking for someone who uses full words.
I know some claim that I’m bitter, carrying a torch, or martyring myself (and those are my friends) but the reason doesn’t matter. I will admit they are right about one thing though, being single doesn’t have to mean being alone, which is why I’m doing this.
I didn’t want to lead anyone on, so I was very blunt in my Avmatch profile.
