I've had many discussions about why I don't do SecondLife romantic relationships. The most common response is that I shouldn't knock what I haven't tried. But this shows a complete lack of understanding to what I wrote. As is clear from what you wrote (which I acknowledge), virtual relationships are not fake. They contain many of the emotions, drama, inspiration, sharing, etc. as any other "real" relationship. And when they end, they are just as painful.

You're absolutely right: in a virtual setting, you can easily become a new avatar with a new identify without the other person being any wiser. Perhaps we shouldn't call it SecondLife; a better name might be ThrowAwayLives. It does make me wonder though: what if we could do that in real life? Would the world be a better place... or worse?

So this is my community, and it's both happy and sad at the same time. It's intended to move you. Poetry, musings, photos, art.... whatever elicits a feeling too strong to ignore. Welcome.
