Bring me a dream.

Pose :   Sari-Sari - Sleep (bento) @ The Seasons Story

On facebook today & yesterday someone on my feed was asking whether it's usual for people in SL to just go "ghost" without warning. Apparently, they had been in a relationship with someone, and everything seemed happy... when they just didn't return.
This has happened to me more than once, as I expressed in her thread. But honestly, is it that much different from going on a few dates with someone for real, and having them ignore your texts and calls and never seeing them again? 
I'm not legitimizing this kind of behaviour... in fact, it's utterly contemptible in my book. I am however, surprised that it surprises people.
SL is used by many for a fantasy outlet. Then there are a few people who believe SL & RL correlate in some way, but aren't directly connected and finally, there's the Secondlife equates to me in RL group. I believe it's important when engaging in any type of relationship to find out which group your new friend belongs to.
Of course, it's far more complicated than just the three groups I have listed. There's no reason why you can't dip your toes contentedly into all three at the same time, or have friendships and relationships with people within all of those sectors. I do think that those you connect with -usually- tend to be those who think in similar terms as you do, but of course, there are going to be those who want to 'play games'. Some people are playing the game because it gives them some odd sense of power and others are playing the game unwittingly, usually because they're insecure and are pretending to know what they want, while not having a clue as to who they really are.
Ultimately, it's like everything. If you don't take a chance, you'll never know what might be.
And if you do take a chance, you need to be prepared to get hurt and learn to move on from it.

My details today are very brief, but I hope you manage to find some treasures from them! This Miss Chelsea set is fuggin' amazing, and i'm not even sorry I've blogged it twice in two days and worn it out already - and Epiphany hasn't even begun yet!
