I inhabit a land called Second Life. It truly is another dimension. I have been in that world since 2006. I have owned some wonderful parcels of land there, had Art shows and I have had many lovers. The drama that can develop in these realms is complicated. It is not for the weak at heart or the feeble of mind.
My last lover in Second Life was Sterling. In real life he was in Ohio and I was in California. That made for a three hour time difference but we met most of last winter every night at 8pm for me and 11pm for him. We had fun and connected on many different levels. Things started to fade a couple months ago but we vowed to always love each other. Love? humph.
Yes, love. There are real emotions in cyberspace and I just learned that Sterling got married in Second Life last week and didn't tell me. I had been leaving him little nice notes and I knew he was a busy fellow but I really didn't expect to see on his profile that he had been partnered. The woman he married is also happily married in Real Life to someone else.
She has lots of references to the love of God in her profile and she is a relationship counselor in Second Life. I just have to laugh at the thought of her giving out advice. But relationships in cyberspace need explaining. I have half a mind to write her a note and tell her about Sterling and I describing all the things we did last winter. But instead I blocked Sterling and wrote him an email saying he should have told me.
I also told him I was happy for him. I have had three big loves since I started Second Life. The first I sent back to his wife in real life but he ended up divorced and met two twenty year olds in Second life who he has become involved with in real life for these past four years. We still talk and yes, sometimes dance and flirt but mostly I listen to him and he listens to me. He is an artist.
My next love is in Canada. He and I had a flirty time until he met Elaine and then he had to choose between us. He chose Elaine and they are very happy altho she is in the states and they may never meet. I know Elaine now and yes, I sometimes flirt with my old friend and have a dance or two. He is an artist.
My third love in Second Life is in San Francisco. He is very married but with no sex in rl so he has some in cyberspace. He and I had a fling but it was brief. I am not a fan of dating someone who is married in rl. But we are still the best of friends. He even flew down here and met my boyfriend and I and now that my boyfriend has died he and I visit lots in Second Life. He is not an artist but he is a computer genius and flys his small plane in a formation group. That seems like Art to me.
So I am suprised that I dont want to keep Sterling in my pack. I am just not in the mood to see his name come up on my contact list in Second Life and see how much time he is spending there without me. Each person in the universe is unique and our connections are deep and complicated. I know Sterling is busy and cyber relationships are the only way he can find time for that sort of thing. I wish him the best. I try not to lurk around in the parts of the Second Life Universe where I know he and his new Mrs. might be hanging out and as with any break up it is tempting to imagine where they are and what they are doing.
I recently kissed a fellow in real life. I'll see him again next week. He is just as complicated as anyone I meet and we did connect on the internet in the beginning. Humanity might as well get used to the idea that online relationships are very powerful. It is the modern evolving world and the soap operas of the future are going to be very interesting.
I am not one to sit life out on the sidelines. I take the lumps and bumps of life in stride and I know how to grieve a broken heart and move on. It is very easy to do in Second Life. I just teleported to Kissena Park in SL where there is a very popular Intimate Romantic Garden. It is my first time at this place.
Right away I met Helcio Hurricane. He is new to SL and in Brazil. Trying to practice his English and doing very well. A hunk. I am not going to tell him my age. He says he is shy but wants to dance.
I switch my hair to Razor Red and we start dancing slow.
We find a place away from the main dance floor nearby and enjoy each other's company with chit chat. It doesnt take long to hug and kiss.
This is a funny pose where I shake my boobs. lol The music is fantastic. "Sail Away With Me"....love songs with the perfect beat.
I tell him I am not looking for love. Just some fun. He agrees. We both like this stuff and it is so relaxing....Sail away with me to another world. From one lover to another. Pure abandon.
We decide to exlore some more and I follow him along the beach and find a wonderful romantic swing to play on.
With a few clicks I have my zebra bikini top on and then he asks if I want to go to a private room with him. You bet I do...
He goes to the room and then teleports me in. The walls rezzed around us slowly and then there was some privacy and a good bed.
The next set of photos is too intimate for sweet Open Salon. Imagine.
The words come easy with this fellow and he is a very good lover. He is very considerate, smart and easy going; very energetic and excited. We go on and on and on. Typing fast. Saying all the right things that make us hot and satisfied. Everyone should know what turns them on. Relationships develop and people connect in cyberspace intimately or not.
