"Hello, it's been moons since i have seen you."
Time passes quickly in Second Life, and when I got this IM I had no idea who it was from. that doesn't mean anything, really. Very likely we had a nice conversation or two a year ago, and the experience has been lost under the sheer number of people I've talked to since then.
I thought I'd look at her profile to see if I could jar my memory.
Now - that's unusual: she based the way her avatar looks on the appearance of a dead friend. And she's part of the large dominant-submissive culture and is "owned" by someone - but is married in real life and her husband has just joined Second Life. That makes my mind go loop-the-loop.
It's fascinating how convoluted social ties are in Second Life.
I have yet to figure out how we know each other, though.
