There are many in SL who vehemently insist that SL is SL and First Life is First Life and NEVER the twain shall meet. There are yet others who have managed to strike a balance between how much of the two worlds they allow to crossover. Then there are those, albeit rare, who find themselves completely immersing the two lives…my husband and I are two of those people.
The man wearing the fabulous new mesh tuxedo from LAPOINTE & BASTCHILD is my wonderful husband Douglas Caldwell. Neither one of us was particularly in search of a relationship in SL and neither one of us ever gave thought to any SL relationship transmuting to First Life….it just happened. Our first meeting in SL was completely random and it was clear from that first connection that this relationship was going to be different.
First, we didn’t go through that whole “madly in love” phase…we were just immediately comfortable with one another; like friends who have known each other for years. Communicating with one another was just a flow of easy conversation…and before we knew it we were living together in First Life as well. We are approaching our one year anniversary and I cannot begin to explain how much his loving presence has changed SL and FL.
I can’t tell you that mixing SL and FL is good or bad…I only know that for us it has somehow just worked. Every relationship is unique to the two people involved; regardless of which “world” or “life” it is built in. What has worked for us is simplicity…we have always just been the same, beautifully flawed, human beings in both worlds. Our avatars may not look like our First Life selves, but our hearts and our spirits have remained the same in both worlds.
My hair is the fabulous Zoey (Saffron) from *Bliss Couture* and the stunning Harvest jewelry set is from CHOP ZUEY COUTURE JEWELRY; as is my Kismet wedding set. My top is a classic “go to” wardrobe selection, Poet Shirt II (Cream), from ~Sassy!~ and my pants, Kay, are from MOLiCHiNO (Fabulous classic styles).
