I have often heard residents say that SL time seems to be on an accelerated pace. There is no doubt that my own time spent in-world seems to fly quickly. I guess I tend to be amused with discovering something new about it. Whether it's cool places to shop, finding a beautifully built location, or just playing around with the building tools. My friend Brady calls it my curious nature and you know...he is right about that.
So are relationships any different in SL than they are in RL? What is the glue that keeps them together? Have you ever looked at your Contacts list and wondered why you added a certain person in the first place? Do you even remember who they are are? My list of friends is not huge so I don't have a group like "Friends of Rocky" although I probably could start one. Most of my friends are part of my other friend's groups.
