The word Virtual is an adjective its meaning has evolved with technology’s advance in our world. One Virtual definition is being in effect but not in fact or name or close to but not quite something. A new definition describes virtual as existing or occurring on computers or on the Internet.
Close to but not quite something would imply that a virtual relationship isn’t real. I would disagree with this in many ways, your experience of something you believe is always real. An emotional exchange can have the same effects on the psyche in virtual space as in physical space. Sharing time, love, humor and fun virtually can exude warmth and connection even virtually.
Friendships and romantic relationships have been and are more frequently being forged virtually. In some ways, a virtual relationship requires more thought and effort as subtle visual cues are nonexistent. In some ways, more open in communication possibly due to the illusion of protection or distance may make it easier to share deeper feelings and thoughts.
Alexia Paragorn has put together a Second life meet up
April 1ST 12pm slt
@ Commune Utopia in Second Life
An intimate conversation about Love, Sexuality and Relationships
One of the most fascinating things within our virtual world are the connections we make with others, often we meet people we would not easily encounter in our regular lives or experiment with lifestyle choices and relationship styles.
Building friendships and love relationships on a virtual base has many benefits and also, its own unique challenges. With the freedom to explore our desires many more options open up to us and we are able to learn about ourselves and grow as individuals and gain beautiful experiences.
We would like to talk about all sorts of topics this brings up, have a discussion and an exchange of experiences and perspectives.
Let’s connect on a more intimate level, we invite you to join us
