Part fantasy, part reality. That's what a romance in Secondlife is like. The reality part is that you connect with others. You form friendships, which in many cases turns into real life friendship and romance. The fantasy part is living in a virtual world, being any character you want, living the life you can't afford in real life.
Romance is always blossoming in Secondlife. It's a wondrous place where you can meet people from all over the world!

If you have never heard of Secondlife, it's this amazing 3-D based Massive multi-player online role-playing virtual world where you create your own avatar and can become anything in-world that you want. It launched in June of 2003 and by the end of 2017 had over one million regular users. You can meet people from all over the world. Don't let the 'role-playing' part scare you. It does have a large role-playing base, but not everyone role-plays. There are many reasons to utilize this platform. Some large real life companies have board meetings inside of Secondlife. Talented artists sell their artwork through Secondlife. Musicians play live online. Secondlife has it's own marketplace and it's own virtual currency.
I've met the most amazing people and some have become real life friends. I had a friendship bloom and met up with someone, spending 10 amazing days together!
Within the realm of Secondlife, anything is possible. A real life friend of mine met her husband on Secondlife. And many others I know within the virtual world, also met up in person and married.
The possibilities inside this virtual world are endless. You and your date can explore and go from a dinner date and dancing to taking a plane ride to the ends of the earth!
Romancing online can have its difficulties, just like anything else, however the excitement and connection it brings is worth it. Whether you are just sitting around in deep conversation, or exploring the virtual worlds, (and there is a lot to explore) or sailing on the Secondlife Oceans, this is certainly a place for you to come to after a long stressful day!
There is a slight learning curve when first signing into this online virtual world. However, it's so worth it. It's free to join, but they also have many upgrades that you can pay for. I highly recommend you to familiarize yourself with the platform before spending money. You can do almost anything with the free account. And if you have any difficulties, feel free to contact me with questions. I will gladly help you maneuver around inside. You can sign up HERE to make an account and take a look around. (This is an affiliate link, however, you do not have to pay to join! You never have to pay and still will have access to almost all of what Secondlife has to offer!
