Dating in SL Shaggy Style – Part 1: Contact

So today I was hanging out with a good friend of mine and we came to the conclusion that a lot of SL Relationships can be summed up by Shaggy songs. No, I’m serious! Considering how long the average relationship lasts in SL, mind you there are exceptions and I’m really glad they found someone special, but honestly for the most part I’m surprised that I got passed song #1, So here we go. The SL Dating cycle by Shaggy!

Courtship

Hey Sexy Lady

This is the moment that he spots that girl hanging at the club, she looks so fine with the way she shakes those hips to the music. He moves his virtual self to get closer to her and then open up that Instant Message feature that is commonly referred to as… the naughty box…  and says, “Hi…”

yep best come on ever.

Surprisingly she responds and she’s checking him out and things start to get to flirty.

She’s thinking… Luv Me, Luv Me

He’s thinking… Wild 2Nite

Things are jamming in that naughty box, IMs flying away as each one becomes more emboldened until finally the moment of truth…

They add each other as friends.

Accidental Tourists

One of the things I love about SL are the people you meet. One thing is for certain, since I’ve been doing more and more virtual photography, I’ve been making more friends and doing stuff I really hadn’t done before. One person who I’ve been getting to know is Gee, a fellow photographer and blogger along with her friend Manis. Well, today I was standing around the Builder’s Brewery, contemplating how lists would work in a script I’m writing, when Gee invites me to a sim to check out called Takeuti Town. The sim was incredibly well detailed and you literally felt you were in Urban Japan.

Well, one thing lead to another and of course, picture taking happened. I believe that Gee and Manis are both going to be blogging it at their blog [Our Everyday] so be sure to check out what’s going on with their fashion blog.

Take out, anyone?

We’re having takeout!

Smoking virtually… Why?

So… I’m standing. We have to realize that in SL this is a permanent position of my avatar. Sometimes I relent and dance when my friend Nai asks me to, but most of the time I’m standing looking around and reading profiles when this woman comes in and has a virtual cigarette in her hand, and I have to wonder, why?

I’m not entirely sure what’s going on. Maybe I’m missing the cool factor. Real life wise, I don’t like the habit, and I avoid standing near someone who is smoking, because of this, I have a similar reaction to seeing it in SL. I must be severely missing the point.

Silver Linings Come In All Shapes & Sizes…

This morning I was at Builders Brewery standing on a pose stand trying to figure out what clothes I could wear with my Slink body. So i see this message from 7 Deadly s{K}ins about a blogger pack sent to the actual group.  I click on it, open it and I was like, “Wow!  this was really not meant for me.” but at the same instance, i got curious about the skins as I had only really tried on demos and looked for a hunt gift (which I couldn’t find by the way) and decided to put the skin on, use the included appliers on my Slink body and check it out.  The skin is excellent quality and the body detailing is magnificent.  This weekend, the Liam skin, which is what I’m wearing is on  special promo soon.  If you are lucky like I was to get the notice, then good on you!  Otherwise head on down to 7 Deadly S{k}ins and check out the men’s and women’s selection.  Well made skins for sure!

Photography…

So besides standing around in SL, lately I have been expanding my horizons and learning the ins and outs of SL Photography.  The Flickr community for SL is massive and there are a lot different folks taking pictures of their virtual selves. I’ve met a few photographers, and they are passionate about their work and the work of others.

One of the photographers I’ve met, Cenedra Ashbourne has become a good friend.  I’ve been hanging out with her a lot in SL and I’ve managed to take a couple pictures of her.  My favourite is my most recent pic done of her.  I’m learning and enjoying this new hobby.
