It has been a very busy time in my real life, and what I have found bizarre is the number of dreams that have invaded my sleep from my second life...as well as the nature of those dreams. I have not had the chance to be here, consciously, so something took me to sl in my dreams.
I have not met a person here on sl that does not say rl comes first. Does this negate the need that we have for the interactions that we have here on sl? I think not. Nor does it keep us from missing the people that are here.
While away, I sent an e-mail to the only person that I thought would miss me here. When I did not hear back, after a couple of e-mails, I stopped sending them. Perhaps, we invest too much emotionally in our sl relationships. But there it is.
Who's a needy fairy?
I am the person that I am, I have a very busy rl at times. Other times I have more time to get on-line. Exploring on sl is what I try to do with much of that time. At the time I started this venture I did not expect relationships that would garner so much of my attention. Being independant is important to me. But it seems to come at a price. Right now, though I struggle with that, it is well worth it.
Respect is the best foundation for all relationships whether or not they are D/s. We love who we love in all worlds. If they love us back or how they love us back is their own business. I respect those I love, and i realize and accept that we all relate differently. My only hope is that those I love will allow the same for me.
