With the festive season now behind us the next big thing is Valentine’s Day and in conjunction with Ivy Maverick we thought it would be appropriate to investigate the state of SL relationships. As a result I will be putting together an article on SL relationships which will be posted on Ivy Maverick’s ‘Stuff Groups Blogs. To quote Ivy when we were discussing the project, we are looking for “the good, the bad and the ugly”. So what that means is we would like input from you on your SL relationship experiences regardless of what they are.
I have a few questions which if you have got time I would appreciate you answering. No names will be mentioned in the article unless you give us permission to publish your name. I will be drawing from the responses to these questions in my article. Our intention is for you to respond to the article on the blog once it is posted, should you wish to.
Please feel free to expand on your answers.
