I may not be able to post as much this week. My SL partner and I have had to step back from each other. I've only had one partner and we had been together for well over a year as first friends, then more:)

Relationships can end for any number of reasons:
They get on your nerves
You don't love each other
Taking you for granted
Constant Arguments
you have nothing in common but Chemistry...
....I could go on and on.

There is one other reason, a much more complicated one. How many times does it need to be said? SL and RL should never EVER mix. Well, if that's true - then it's not love.

As you drive your car and think of the other or move about the day changing your schedule a bit so you can spend time with him/her.....At these points, it leaves the game. It is real.

Most of us have RL family, jobs, community. So how do we balance not only our time, but our feelings? Does something have to give? So does this mean we stand between our loved one and their real life? their spouse? their job? their community?

I guess what I am saying is that sometimes you break up because you love each other.

I'm rambling. well off to the shower.

wow...I could have written this a week ago or so. It's a strange situation we find ourselves in.

Like charity said, thanks for the post. I wish I had answers for you, for myself, for all of us going through this. Let me know if you find any.

Coulda, Shoulda, Woulda... and then the if-only's kick in.

I've been there and all I can say is somehow I came out of it better, stronger, and happier and smarter (I hope).

All the best to you and remember you aren't alone in this.
