Am I Cheating?
He knows that I have a lot of online friends that I’m close to. He knows that I enjoy myself (a lot) when he’s not around (he finds that sorta hot). What he doesn’t know is that I do them both together. He is the love of my life. I have no doubt. And would never do these thigns in RL. And I am open and honest about everything. Just this. I actually found this site, asking myself this question. Trying to come to terms with it. I mostly have now.
Here is my rationalization:
1) Reading trashy romance novels are ok. Writing trashy romance novels is ok. Here I’m just doing them both, with someone else, at the same time… (stop looking at me like that!)
2) This world is virtual. In virtual worlds it is ok to kill people. What’s a little virtual sex.
3) Ok, so the physical act is virtual, but the emotions are real. Very real. But a minister at a wedding reminded me that there are lots of different kinds of love. Love for parents, for siblings, for friends. I believe in love. I really do. And isn’t love the only thing that there’s just, too little of? I think?
4) IMVU makes me feel more like… me. All the things I wished I had done, misssed out on… The holes in my life, the nagging regrets all totally gone. Leaving me happier, more loving in rl.
