Dating in SL seems to be like something that I did an eternity ago now, I spent all my time in clubs meeting new and interesting people, getting to know them and then after a while realising that they were just someone I wasn't compatible with. At the time, and I guess without knowing it, I used the way that guys acted around my SL family as a means of a test - we weren't the most conventional of families and there were some cracking conversations to be had which ultimately resulted in a lack of repeat dates for me LOL - yet there was one guy to crack through that and remain with me for the long haul... HellBone!
|Us a year or so ago... Such an old looking photo compared to my recent photos.|
Still I came over, met him, explored Amsterdam and went to a gig, leaving Holland not just with some awesome memories, but also with a Dutch Boyfriend. What a souvenier huh? I think a T-Shirt might have been easier to handle - not as much fun, but easier LOL!
Anyway, yesterday was our anniversary, and we got to celebrate it in a weird deja vu ish way... Marilyn Manson was over again on tour with Rob Zombie. IT WAS THE BEST GIG WE'VE BEEN TO IN A LONG TIME!
OH AND, Shiny Bubble - our eldest heap of trouble - sent me a message for us both, it made me cry and I wanted to share something she said. Along with telling us that she loved us and that we'd changed her life for the better just by being her "parents", she included a quote that I feel would be a good life philosophy!
"When you look ahead to the future or look back at how things used to be, don't forget to look beside you, because that's where you'll find the one that will always be there, loving you with all their heart."Thank you Shinypants! Hellywelly, there is no way that I can thank you - we've been through some tough times in the last 3 years, but we've come through - the grass is greener on this side of the fence, let's stay here and face the world together!
(Just to let you know, I am not totally sure what I am wearing in this photo, let alone Hell's outfit details... I will dig out details if people want them, please don't hesitate to ask!)
