I think that I’ve progressed past the point that I need SL anymore.
This doesn’t appear to be really related to my relationship issues there, although certainly I acknowledge that I was there because people that I cared about were there, and i wanted to be with them. It’s more that I’ve been going out more and more as Lynn, at least once a week if not 2-3 times a week at times, and that accounts for a much bigger emotional impact than the girl time I can get online. I’ve joked about 3 hours of Lynn time in real life being worth something like 9 hours of Lynn time online, but I’m thinking it’s become more lately.
The other factor is that anyplace there that I’ve considered home has either closed, or something happened that I could no longer call it home. This has happened several times, a combination of club lifespans with the internet lifespan. Which means a few months at best, and then I’m cast loose again in the world.
This past week I haven’t been in for more than clearing out the message queue. I haven’t felt anything like the desire to really spend time there, if I have it’s been more just to have something running in the background while I do other things.
I’m not planning on deleting the account, but I suspect that I’ll be doing some cleaning out of inventory in the very near future with it.
