This week I’m getting a new computer. It should be here by the end of the week and then lord help everyone! I’m going from an i2 core to an i7 and a better processor, etc. Upgraded ram, new graphics card. It’s not top of the line and it is relatively cheap by most people’s standards, but still its ten times better than the computer I have now. My old horse of a computer has taken me a long way and now it’s time for me to let it rest…haha
I keep seeing friends post about not having a love or someone in their lives or they are just broken up with someone…. Yet again… They ask why they’re alone. Or how to find someone new. Then they talk about giving away all of their secrets within a few days of meeting….some within hours of meeting. Don’t you know you’re supposed to dole that shit out over time rather than going at the new person like a wrecking ball on speed? What’s your hurry that you have to speed things along over several days, rather than taking the time to get to know someone before you partner them or before you move to the next step. Take your time and get to know the person before you tell them all your deepest sexual secrets. Seriously, some things need to be taken slow over fast.
Strawberry Singh posts weekly challenges for bloggers to follow and this time, I’ve decided to participate. It is Valentine’s themed challenge, which is fitting with what I said above. Here’s my answers (in pink):
Do you date in Second Life? Yes. My SL husband and I go out on dates every week. Sometimes more than once a week. It helps us take time for each other and have good quality time together without interference from outside people.
Share some locations in Second Life that you think are ideal to go to on a date: We like to do random searches for a topic. Sometimes we set it for Moderate, sometimes solely Adult. Sometimes we set it for both. We choose a word or a topic and we start sim hopping. Other times we’ll go out dancing and choose the music depending on our mood. There are a lot of things you can do in SL on a date. Really, anything that is in SL can be a date to an extent from going to a garden to finding a nice restaurant for a nice “dinner.” It’s all in fun and no matter what, you are spending time with that person. It’s not hard to come up with a date idea.
Share a story of one of your favorite dates/proposals you’ve experienced in Second Life, or something someone has done for you that meant a lot. My favorite was when Daddy proposed to me. I knew there was something coming, but I didn’t know what. He had asked me a few days before if I would like a ring to wear that came from him, but I didn’t realize he meant wedding ring. grins The day that he proposed, I officiated my Nana’s wedding in SL. It was the first time I had done anything like it and I was super nervous. I’m not really a “go to weddings” girl because they are so laggy, but this one I was very happy to go to. Afterwards, we went home and logged off for a bit, when we came back, he set up a table while we were talking and I was tending the farm, then he pulled me over to the table with special animations. He gave me a rose reflecting how we met and proposed…It was a special day that was only surpassed by our wedding on December 30, 2017.
Have you ever fallen in love in Second Life? Yes. See above answers.
Have you ever gotten partnered or married in Second Life? Yes. We partnered on our wedding day as a way to “sign” the marriage registry. It was a beautiful ceremony. You can read more about here.
What I’m wearing:
The last two weeks I’ve been working on a dress-up badge with my troop where we have to wear hearts on everything we wear from our head to our toes….except collars and wedding rings. It’s been fun. That’s why I’m in hearts in my pictures here. I’m wearing a Queen of Hearts Top Hat fashioned after Alice in Wonderland, one of my favorite tales, a red dress with hearts, some heart tattoos on my cheeks and to finish it off, the Valentine’s version of the N-Core Butterfly shoes just released today.

Location the Pictures were taken: Backdrop City, YouTuber area. This place is amazing. If you are looking for a new place to take pictures for your blogs or just to take pictures for your house or whatever, this is one of the best. There are different sections by theme that cover just about everything from fantasy to super girly backdrops. I’ve been having a lot of fun with this place.
