Last night after my explorer friend logged off, I spent another hour in SL trying to find something to do. My question is this:
Where the fuck are people hanging out at?
I started with the events listing. I went to 10 events in about 30 minutes. Either no one was there or no one would talk to me once they got past "Hi."
I've said it before: Trying to break into these tight SL circles requires a battering ram and some butter. The people who have that they are friendly and you should talk to them on their profiles should edit them to say that they're friendly and you should talk to them if you come with references from their existing friends, otherwise you should just go somewhere else.
This isn't like I think I'm owed friendship or that I'm not willing to work for it. Why does it have to be this hard? I'm a nice girl, chatty if someone's listening. My av is decent looking so you don't have to be embarassed if you take me somewhere.
Someone said I could find men to have sex with if I wanted. But hey, I'm not into random poseball sitting. I want a cool group of guys and girls to hang with, talk to, all that good stuff.
Oh, and let me just say something else about events. If you are holding an event, talk to the people that come in. I can't tell you how many events I've gone to where no one talks at all, even the host/hostess. Look, I don't work in SL and I don't know how the club game is done, but I think the role of the host is to keep people there, right?
Alicia's Tip Of The Day: Fucking talk to people! Just because you have friends doesn't mean that you can't use more.
