Me and my Boyfriend ♥

matdawn

I am very proud to say that me and my partner, Mat, have been together for three solid years in Second Life. I still find myself chuckling whenever I remember how I met him. I was on a dance pole, doing my sexy dances when I saw him landed at The Pink Velvet Club. He was wearing this odd looking beach shorts with a noobie skin and hair. I said Hi to him and he was nice enough to go on the couch and started talking to me. He was a gentleman and quite generous with tips, to think I did not even take off my bikinis. We started talking about where we were located in RL and pretty much talked about each other’s real stuff. I thought he was just one of those men who will talk to me today and never again tomorrow, it was an SL stripper thing – LOL .. by the way, he never asked for sex No No No!

Mat and I are friends first, then lovers. The constant conversation on Skype and knowing that he would stay up until 1 AM for me even if he has to work at 7 am the next day, made me realize that this guy must be up to something “nice”. I get excited when he goes online and I love spending countless hours with him – there is never a dull moment with my love. We love to laugh, watch movies online, we love to make fun of people – and each other too LOL. When he finally asked me if he can add me to real life Facebook, I was so happy, and then one day he told me that, he would love to make our relationship a real one and that there is no need for him to be on SL all the time since he has always wanted me to be his Real Life love … I almost faint! After 3 years, we are still together … we had our ups and downs, we went through it all. I am very happy that we were able to endure each other’s dramatic moment.

It is never easy to have this virtual and long distance relationship. He is from Canada, I am from the Philippines. Since we want to make it work, we work hard to make it work. My frustration of being away from him, not being able to cuddle, kiss and hold hands is really heartbreaking but I need to accept it because that is how it is for now. If there is anything that I really treasure about my relationship with Mat is that we have created our own world on SL. We have a beautiful beach home, we have a stubborn perverted cat, Sphynx, we both love to put our avatars in awkward positions (LOL) and we just enjoy discovering new things inworld.

I don’t really know if it is still possible but, maybe someday, me and my love, Mat, will meet in real life. If not, I will still treasure the good  times and will wish him the best as I know, that he has a good heart. Second Life has been good to me, Mat is one of it’s amazing gifts and it is also a reason why I still believe there are good people in the community. I know for a fact there are genuine real love stories on SL and I hope that you will find and make your own love story too. Love love love ❤

The New Dawn ♥

The new Dawn – click to see full image

For the longest time, I was wearing the Al Vulo Sarah Shine Sunkissed Skin. I bought it year 2013 and I promised myself that I won’t ever change how my avi looked. Many people liked my avatar, I get many compliments and so I was very confident that there is no need for me to give in to this whole mesh head craze.

Well, I was wrong. I gave in to the craze and maybe I will not regret it (LOL). When I first showed this to my boyfriend, he was a bit hesitant and he felt like it does not represent me. We were both really feeling weird about me having a new skin as we are both so used to the sweet image that my previous avatar has. It was my friend Abbey Bigboots who tagged me to a blog post on Facebook and encouraged me to check out this very cute skin. I thought it was just one of those mesh head + skins that I will probably try the demo and then trash it. I am not going to lie, I did not like this skin when I bought it and wore it for the first three days … I kinda miss the “sweet looking Dawn”. So I wore the skin and never took it off. I stared at it and was trying to figure out what hair will look best in her and how will I make her look sweet.

Last night, after a long day at RL work and before going to bed, I logged in to SL. I stared at her for a long time and rotated her while she was on a pose stand. I dressed her up with my favorite dress, hair and shoes that my old skin hasn’t worn before. I think she is starting to be the Dawn that I want her to be.  She has that classy, kinda dominant and that “dont you dare f*ck with me” look (Yay!). I think what really cracked me up was when my boyfriend’s avatar saw the new me all glammed up and I was trying to make my avi flirt with him and then he said “I feel like I am cheating on the old Dawn but, it is allowed.” (LOL) Such a horndog :p

I would like to give props to the gorgeous Lara Hurley – she is the creator of my skin. She was very sweet when I reached out to her and asked so many noob questions regarding my new skin. I promised her that I will send her a photo of Dawn once I am done making her the “Dawn” I want her to be. By the way, Lara Hurley also informed me that she will be updating the Aria Skin applier, adding make up and tattoo layers, since Alex Logo Mesh Head  was updated recently. If you were like me who purchased the Aria Skin Applier exclusively made for Alex Logo, then be sure to visit the store one of these days and hit the Redeliver Terminal for an updated version of the skin applier.

I also want to say thank you to Abbey Bigboots and Melangel Thespian who guided me so patiently on how to apply the Omegas and the default mesh head (Yes, I was that noob!). Special thanks also to my pretty sistah for life Sibyl Vane, the super helpful group members of Omega Appliers Systems Support and Fifty Linden Friday for giving me tips and sharing their knowledge on how to use the huds and where to get the best deals to make my avatar look even more beautiful.

I am happy with the new me on Second life. I don’t want to sound so shallow, but I realized that I really need a change and this new skin is a perfect representation of the new role I am playing inworld. This is definitely The New Dawn.
