who are we? sister, sub, domme, pet, slave, mistress, partner, wife, fiancee, girlfriend, niece, auntie, twin sister, bff, miss, mom?

You are a sum of all the relationships in here.In the real world the words that define our relationships are a lot easier to figure out. Family is mostly defined by blood and legal contracts. But here in imvu, like in the Friends tv show, your family is who you choose.

So its tricky that we have so many words–sister, sub, domme, pet, slave, mistress, partner, wife, fiancee, girlfriend, niece, auntie, twin sister, bff, miss, mom–that all basically just means variations of really good friend, all of whom I love.

So why all the words? Sorting them out can be confusing especially to those who are new but for all of us. Just to complicate it further, things are always changing at internet speed in here, and honestly no two relationships are the same even with very similar people in the same situation and role.

imvu twins and soul matesEven just with a single person, like kait, she’s my sister, twin sister, partner, niece, wife’s pet, confidant, miss’ best friend.

When I started writing, I thought I would define what each of these words mean, but I decided its hopeless. The words mean whatever your heart tells them it means, and that may be different from one family to another.

But I think all the different words should be celebrated. People in my imvu Family are all important to me, just different roles, different parts of me, different parts of US. That weave together and make your tapestry of friends so beautiful and so unique. IMVU is in a lot of ways about relationships and one of the most exciting things about this world is the variety. Vive la difference.

  1. There are so many things in here that are a little different than real life and the words just don’t seem to fit very well. Things also evolve so fast in here too. You can’t get too caught up on titles. Every relationship is different and it’s the relationship that matters more than the title. If you put the relationship first, the title will follow, or won’t matter. It’s kind of like I say with imvu marriage. Marriage in here isn’t about making a commitment, it’s acknowledging the commitment you already feel.

    In three and a half hours you’re going to be marring Susan again. Dam just saying (ok typing that actually) is making me cry already. I’m so way beyond just being happy for you it isn’t funny. I almost want to say I’m more excited about this than I was about my own ceremony. I love you soo soo much and could NOT be happier for you if I tried.

  2. its also neat as someone who studies how people behave, to see how its different in a virtual world. and reminds me those sci fi books about cyberspace like Ready Player One and Snowcrash that are already on imvu basically reality.

  3. I was rereading this and just have to say, that the variety and depth of relationships here is amazing. It’s so amazing how different every relationship is and how powerful they become. You’re the best example Katy. I added another picture of you, because you mean so much to me. You make this world so much brighter! I don’t just love you. I respect, admire, adore and cherish you, always!
