You mean like how people in Home pretend to fly?  How people in Home pretend to ride dragons?  How people in Home pretend to be students at Hogwarts?  How people in Home pretend to (fill in the blank of any number of things people do in Home because they enjoy doing it).

 

If there are people pretending to be in love, why is that any more or less different than anything else people pretend to do in a virtual world?  I can certainly think of much worse things people might pretend to do in Home (or any where for that matter, online or off).

 

Furthermore, it's important to remind ourselves there are real people behind each and every avatar (although I have my doubts about a certain Jill that hangs out at the park a lot) Smiley Wink  And when you allow yourself to open up, and really get to know someone and you let them get to know you, it doesn't surprise me in the least that there are likely many people who have genuine affection and even love for one another... Which is actually kind of cool, and not dumb.  It shows that even in a virtual world, many people are capable of having real personal connections with others, and not simply 'pretend'.

 

It wouldn't surprise me if some have taken their virtual relationship offline and found a great partner.

 

Personally, physical contact is much to important to me, so I would have a difficult time having just a virtual relationship, but as others have said, love is a funny thing, and you just never know where you might find it.  In fact, I would say that it often happens when you least expect it, and when you aren't looking for it - and the opposite can also be true, and when you try to look for love it is often elusive.

 

So my recommendation is to relax, have fun, and if others find love or you find love, whether its offline or online, embrace it. 

 


If physical contact is so important to you why not go down to the animal shelter and rescue a stray dog or cat.

This is something that really only my friends and people closest to me know, but I myself actually date someone on Home. We have been together now for approaching 6 months and yeah my feelings for him are actually very real. I don't see how anything that ever made/makes you happy can be dumb.

 

Even if we never meet in real life, he is still a rock to me. He is my best friend. I trust him with everything. I tell him everything. He knows me, he gets me and most of all we enjoy each others company.  I don't know what is dumb about that. Don't knock it until you try it.

 

Don't ever regret anything that once made you happy Smiley Wink

- Stand for something better than mediocrity and don't disguise it as adequate, when clearly it is far from that to anyone willing to be objective and unbiased. -
