Are you ready to meet your Virtual Love in Real Life?

Click for details at MTV NewsMTV is doing a show or special of some kind about people meeting their virtual partner in real life for the first time. We’ve all felt so close to someone that we want to meet, but it can be tricky. They often live very far away and it can be great, but it can also be less than great which can hurt a lot too. Deciding to meet in person is a very tricky thing and can certainly be very dramatic. I think it would be a compelling show and if you don’t mind a little bit of reality show type attention and wanted to meet your partner for the first time with the cameras rolling, this

My take is that this raises the stakes a little. If it goes well it will be fun to share the powerful emotion of it. But if it goes well, the pain may be slightly worse too. It may make it harder to slink away and crawl under a rock if it blows up. You also have to consider what will happen if someone in real life sees you too. It’s not like it’s American Idol and the whole world is necessarily watching but still. This isn’t for the faint of heart and you have to be really sure of your feelings and desire. But if it works it will be something you will always look back on and they will probably pick up a few of the expenses too. So in some ways you’ll probably get a free vacation and an amazing adventure out of the deal.

I kind of hear Clint Eastwood whispering in my head, “Do you feel lucky?” I don’t but someone some where probably does and it will make for a compelling show, I will definitely be able to relate to and laugh about. I will also announce it here if I know ahead of time when it’s going to air, because it would probably be interesting to watch for all my virtual friends out there.

    That’s why I believe it helps to have an account to a networking site like Facebook or along that line. That may or may not be the person you exactly viewed in your mind, but it should at least provide a little more insight into his or her personal life. I am picky though about who I add from IMVU to Facebook, where trust highly comes into play.

    • Well be very careful with this. I don’t recommend this and even suggesting it early on is a huge strike against anyone in my book. This is the opposite of what I do in here, for sure.

    True. Luckily the people I’ve added I’ve known at least a few months. I know better than to add them instantly because I just won’t.
