New job, and the difference between lonely & alone.

My job hunting paid off. I am now a hostess at a pretty cool new club. Sorry, I know you all were looking forward to me being a stripper. I don't know how well this is going to pay, but since I am still doing my $5L a day project, guess it doesn't matter all that much.

I have to confess, though. I spent more than $5L today. I went to the ETD sale and bought $30L worth of hair. One from the discount section and one from the regular section. It was just so cute and I haven't been feeling very "up" the past couple of days, so I figured I deserved it.

Just Me

I doctored this pic up using the Picnik thing on Flickr. The text came out blurry and I'm not sure why, but I don't feel like fixing it.

As far as me not feeling very "up" lately, I think it's partly the flu [which I'm getting over] and partly the fact that I feel kind of lonely in SL lately. I know, I'm going to meet people and everything at my new job. But it just seems like EVERYONE is partnered and they have SL siblings and SL parents and it's just hard when basically you're alone in everything you do. Whine whine, poor baby. I'm starting to make myself sick here. :-p

There is a huge difference in being alone and being lonely. Most times I'm cool with being alone. I like to be able to hop from store to store collecting freebies quickly and easily without teleporting people 10 times. I like heading to the sandbox and putting up my changing room [I put a big square in the middle of that thing I was building so I could have some privacy. It works really well.] and opening boxes and trying on things. I'm independent in my RL as well, so it's just something that came with me to my SL.

But there is something to be said for having friends you can IM while you work on things, or ask to come join you somewhere, or even just someone who gets excited when you come in to a place.

And then of course there is the romance factor. Ok, I admit it. I want to meet a guy in SL. I don't want to meet just ANY guy. My list: He needs to be smart, have a good sense of humor and a great personality, be protective of me but let me still be independent, like to have fun, look decent or at least be willing to let me help him look non-noob, and be active in SL.

Wow, that sounds like a lot to ask for. Anyone know where I can find this guy? :)

I'm headed to bed now. I'm exhausted.

Hit "publish" too soon. Congrats on the job, too, having some money makes a great difference in SL (just as in RL, oddly enough).

I love your blog!! Incidently, we're about the same SL age, and I don't make friends easily either. If you wanna hang out sometime and rate guys passing by and just shoot the breeze IM me. I have a bad case of insomnia, so I'm online at odd hours.
My friend Alonzo fits your description for male companionship very well, and he loves to go out dancing.
