Elastic Heart

“Someday you’re gonna look back on this moment of your life as such a sweet time of grieving. You’ll see that you were in mourning and your heart was broken, but your life was changing…” – Elizabeth Gilbert

The Beginning

So now we are at the official first post of this romance blog… haha I believe that it’s best to start at the very beginning where one meets someone for the first time. Everyone has different personalities and may be a bit shy, or very forward when you are first meeting. Or perhaps you started SL joining a family that gives you an opportunity to meet people right away that will help you throughout your SL journey. It may be the avatar you’re staring at that attracts you, but also the words that come from that person. You gaze at them and realize. “Wow, I think I might like this person.” or better yet ” Wow, they are so funny… their personality is quite appealing.” So, that my reader is the start of your beginning, better yet; the connection.

“Lust is temporary, romance can be nice, but love is the most important thing of all. Because without love, lust and romance will always be short-lived.” –Danielle Steel

The Plot

So you decide to log in more, or better yet converse more with this certain person. They make you feel alive, or make you have this strange feeling inside… that you just can’t resolve or identify. This can be a game, or can be a place to live that dream you want or to get away. But of course who wants to be alone, so you converse and you start dating. They bring you laughter, maybe take you on a date to a lovely sim, but you just don’t know what this person is actually wanting to offer you. You may play along with them.. well why not, this is fun right? It’s simple, comfortable and makes you happy. In other words you’re not sure.. but, its seducing you just like a wolf howls to the moon.

“Too many women throw themselves into romance because they’re afraid of being single then start making compromises and losing their identity. I won’t do that.” –Julie Delpy

The Romance and Heartbreak

I feel as when you enter such relationship you lose yourself in this enchanting feeling they give you but also you may just not be lost and just enjoy the imagination your entertaining. But, readers do you ask yourself when you enter such relationship. Is it monogamous? Or does that even exist in such second life. I’ve met constant people who are in relationships but it doesn’t matter if they meet other people. Or others that have their heart broken because you believe that they should only be with you. But is that very fair? When you yourself are enjoying Second life and want to experience what you can’t in Real life.. So does it have value? Does this relationship go to such extreme.. Of course heartbreak will happen to those that open their heart. But what woman or man doesn’t enjoy the cat and mouse chase, And of course, that romance that you’ve dreamed of forever.

“Once you had put the pieces back together, even though you may look intact, you were never quite the same as you’d been before the fall.” –Jodi Picoult

The Aftermath

So you broken up with the person, or have deleted them off, or even blocked them but is that really what it came to? After spending time together and having such a good friendship and relationship did it have to come to that ending? Some of us take time until we find another partner, Or some of us that are known as serial daters, have a guy already lined up to date. We are all different and we choose how much emotion we put into the relationship and how far we open up to these people. Some of us get so vulnerable and lost in the roleplay. Or maybe its not roleplay and you are taking this person to heart because you do want to fall in love.

“Sometimes you have to stop in the middle and rewrite you story. It doesn’t matter whose feelings might get hurt or if it’s going against the plan. It only matters that you’re writing your part, because you are the star. – S.L poetry

 Questions!!!!

So here’s a couple questions I thought would be cool if you could answer. I would love to hear your thoughts on my post but as well what you think on these certain questions.

Serial dating? (in my definition it means you date guy after guy) Are you a Serial dater, and do you know any and approve?

Emoting… Do you emote with your partner? Or just speak with them normally just like a regular conversation.

Is a relationship role-play? Or do you expect to go to a real romantic romance that can get into your real life.

Do you believe your SL partner/boyfriend/girlfriend/mate should only date you?

One thought on “Elastic Heart

  1. Are you a Serial dater, and do you know any and approve?
    >Heck no, i think that relationships shouldn’t be something you jump into, or jump from one to the next. they become meaningless and only creates this void in you that only drives you further away from having what you want, or even discovering what you want…I think that if meant to be, it will happen.. friendships just progress or they don’t.

    Emoting… Do you emote with your partner? Or just speak with them normally just like a regular conversation.
    >Mixed. We do both. Emoting for us is just a regular conversation, we enjoy it, and it makes every conversation unique and fun.

    Is a relationship role-play? Or do you expect to go to a real romantic romance that can get into your real life.
    >Because it’s in sl, i view it as a sort of roleplay… it’s not real life… but I am also being myself, so I guess in a way it does become part of my real life even if we don’t talk outside of SL, or even hear each others voice. And more importantly that regardless of the role you’ve made up, you still put a part of who you are into it, and there are still emotions involved and real people involved. I don’t expect it to reflect my status in RL at all, RL moves at a much slower pace than SL and we have to be friends first before anything else.

    Do you believe your SL partner/boyfriend/girlfriend/mate should only date you?
    >I think it’s up to the individual couple. For some people they want complete exclusivity; for others they are open and don’t really care what their partners do at all. I prefer somewhere in the middle… while I don’t expect me to be everything he needs at every moment of his virtual life, we have promised that each other is what we hold important and as a top priority. we both would drop whatever it was what we were doing to be there should the other person need or want us there. it’s all about give and take and knowing where your (and each others) limits are. yeah, it’s a risk, what if he finds someone else, what if shes prettier, smart, better than me? but.. even if in the end their all what ifs and I have to trust that he cares about me and that I’m important to him.

    Just want to add; I love this blog, I love the project, and I love that the author expresses her thoughts and can remain not only so open and neutral to the topics she chooses but open to the experiences it’s brought her and will bring her in the weeks or months to come. It takes guts to be different, and she’s got the backbone to be that person who brings us something new – that shows us a side of SL few really have the insight on. ❤
