IMVU and real life, sometimes a tough combination!

Story writingSometimes it’s difficult to find the right balance in IMVU, especially when your pressure at work increases. Sometimes it gets hard to keep up and IMVU and real life don’t always mix well. We all have a life and sometimes life just gets in the way or your fun, making it hard to even keep in touch with my best friends in this crazy virtual world.

I have to admit that I’ve spent a lot of time on DND or AWAY mode the last few weeks because I usually try to spend as much time I can in “our” public dream room. It’s kind of been my home away from home lately. I just love how the room relaxes me during this stressful and hectic period in real life. Even if I can’t always be “physically or mentally” present it is so soothing –lol-. Do not hesitate to just came in once in a while for just a simple hello or even a snuggle in. Something I really miss lately!!

This all has made me think of how it might be when I turn my back at this virtual world for a while or even leave IMVU for a period! Would anyone really miss me or would there be anyone who even thinks of that crazy girl from the Netherlands?

I still try to send some messages to various friends and sometimes even a story with several episodes. This isn’t always easy because English isn’t my native language and sometimes I need to use a translator to find the right words. Do not hesitate to dive into your pen…or I guess your keyboard. Make up a story, send a message or reply at something someone else send you. I feel the magic of a smile when someone reads something I wrote. I always smile when I send that new message knowing how it helps keep us close.Reading messages and poetry

I can never leave IMVU for several reasons. I know down to the bottom of my heart that I’ve found the most beautiful true love and this is something I couldn’t even dare to dream about for a long time. The feeling of being in love is something magical than I can’t even find words for. And the friendships that I’ve built within this virtual world of IMVU with the most special people. That’s why even though it’s hard, life gets in the way for all of us, it’s important to have this sanctuary, filled with friends and love supporting and caring about you. So send messages and keep in touch even through the busy times. Send that smile and feel the magic of connecting because your friends need it as much as you do!!

  2. I know you’re talking about your own situation, because this is the busiest time of year for you in your real life. But I can’t help but think that you’re talking about me more than you realize. I’m sitting on the edge of a huge new time commitment that will change my whole life, not just my life here. It’s a great opportunity and is what I’ve wanted but at the same time it scares me.

    We all evolve, and I know this place is super flexible and can kind of be anything you want or need. But i also see how changes in your time dramatically affects your relationships here. You’re right the way to handle that is to write more messages. That’s why I feel like you’re talking straight to me.

    Now I’m sitting here wondering if once you’ve really been touched this much if you can ever truly be the same again. Not that I want to, Yes Wendy, you would SOOO be missed. I’d have to come over and go door to door. :-) Just know that you’re not only important, but we all face this at times. So you’re right notes are an important way to keep the connection, and you’re the queen of notes! -snif- -snif- ;-)

    iImvu would so miss the sweetest, silliest, dutch girl ever! And I would miss you most of all! I can totally relate to being too busy in real for the two to mix. I send messages when I am to busy to chat. I guess I am kinda a message freak. (but after meeting you, I think maybe you are just a smidge better at it than me!) lol – Imvu has made me a faster typist. I have been known to send a message (ok, lots of messages) from work. I can minimize in a millisecond for those pesky co-workers passing by. Just a short note “Thinking of you” or “I love you” or “was so nice being with you” makes my whole day! :) It is so wonderful to see a message from someone, especially those special someones! I have been so enchanted by all the beautiful people I have met on here. I thank the Lord there are people out there like YOU! and Kaity and Steph and Ally and ALL of you!

    Thank you all for your support and understandings. To know there are people all around the world who cares for you, even in times when you can’t be there “physically or metally” makes me teary. I love you all and I care a lot for all of you too…kusjes xxx

      Giggling…it isn’t always easy to find the right words to say or write and I hope so I do not look foolish when I write something. It is soo nice to share some special moments with your dear friends and knowing there are people who understands you when you can’t say it always in words. IMVU is special and when you met the most precious friends you will know they will care for you in every way!!
      Lol…I would love to see you all writing Dutch soon. Mhm…wondering how that would be…lol :).
