When do you admit that you’ve lost hope of something happening? Something you’ve waited for and wanted for so long. I think we can all agree that no one can wait forever. Hope is such a tricky thing, it can keep you going for a while, but at some point you have to realize that what you want isn’t going to happen…or it would have already, right? How do you know if you’re hanging on too long or giving up too soon?
Sometimes I read profiles in SL and want to tell people, “Shhh, your stupid is showing!” I’m not a big fan of the word stupid, but I swear some people act like their opinions are facts. Seriously, no one knows everything. I know some people like to think they do, but they’re wrong.
I remember one time reading a man’s profile where he said something about SL being the only place that grown women giggle and that if you giggle, don’t talk to him, because real women don’t giggle in the real world. Uhm. I do. Anyone that has ever talked to me on voice will probably tell you that, too. To him, I say, “Shhh, your stupid is showing.”
Just yesterday I saw a girl’s profile that said that if someone else’s profile says, “I’m here to have fun,” what they actually meant was that they try to have sex with everyone they see. Uhm, no. There are lots of ways to have fun that do not involve sex. My friends and I can’t be the only idiots that will ride around on a homestead in cars or boats just flipping each other over and laughing senselessly on voice the entire time! To her, I say, “Shhh, your stupid is showing.”
I had a conversation with a guy that said he didn’t fill in his profile, nor did he bother reading other people’s profiles, because he’d rather talk to a person than read about them. Uhm, our entire conversation is taking place in a text window. Aren’t you reading either way? Why not get a feel for who you are about to talk to? I wish people in real life came with a profile, I’d love that shit! To him, I say, “Shhh, your stupid is showing.”
