Up until that point I pretty much thought it totally sucked.
The second time I went in was with a friend, who immediately went on to discover SL Amsterdam with its virtual prostitues and drug shops, sending us on a slippery slope of virtual drugs, seedy nightlcubs ( sadly lacking in people and really quite lame, but then again, they are clubs inside a virtual world so how cool could they possibly be? We caused a bit of an awkward hush at a place I gather was some sort of adult dragon sex playground when we came in looking like humans, rather than customised human-dragon hybrids (are you beginning to get a feel for the sort of people who tend to hang out in Second Life?
Probably 5-8 hours a day, and then always doing things offline that pertain to SL. There is drama, there is hurt, there is love and hate, there is even death. Yes, there are many grids available to explore, but Second Life remains the .Those who want to control others and those who want to be controlled.From here, you can branch out into the various interests.And all of this can be done for much less than the cost a real life date would have cost. I personally have always loved the Live service romantic restaurants in Second Life because I feel it truly creates an atmosphere that is as close to a real life date as you can possibly get.You and your date arrive at the restaurant and you are warmly greeted by your hostess or server.
