So instead of the "Leave me be..." tab in my Picks, I now have this tab instead:
... only if you understand that SL is NOT a game, because it isn't to me and my heart is not a plaything.
... only if you understand that drama is necessarily a part of any relationship that involves strong emotions, like love.
... only if you see the beauty of my avatar as a reflection of my creativity and my technical skill, and you could love, not the beauty you see, but the mind that created it.
... only if you don't expect me to fight for your affections, because love should be a willing coming-together of two souls, not a chasing-after. If I have to fight for you, you're not worth fighting for.
... only if you understand that SL is NOT separate from RL, and commitments made in SL have the same weight as commitments made in RL. Meeting me in a virtual world doesn't make me less human or less worthy of respect than people you meet in real life.
