Virtual Family vs Real Life Family

Lyn Family means a lotI was thinking a lot about family here and in real life while I was away recently. We don’t have a choice who our real life family is. Your real-life family is important because you only get one and you know you can count on your family. There’s something very lasting and important about that.

Your virtual family kind of feels similar in terms of importance in its own way, but is much more of a choice. It’s literally family by choice. You become a family when your friendship grows to that point that there’s no other way to describe it. I tend to be able to share more heartfelt emotional things with my virtual family.

Imvu family in clubReal family is important for your real life and your virtual family is just as important to your virtual life. They are both special. Real life family is special because its permanent. Virtual family is special because its by choice.

I tend to be able to share a lot with family in here but I also try to be more careful in some ways with them too. There are reasons why we don’t mess around in your real family just like there are in here. I Love my virtual family in a very pure kind of way.

  1. Exactly!
    Think I would have chosen my “Don’t call me Sandy anymore, my name is Sandra” cousin?
    In real family, not direct family (spouse, kids) but with siblings, cousins, etc. Sometimes it is difficult to share how much you really love them! Not so here.

  2. They’re both good though. I just thought of an analogy.

    Most of us have a real family to varying degrees. Your virtual family here doesn’t hurt or take away from your real life family, just like having a virtual love here doesn’t hurt or take away from your real life love.

  3. Reminds me of a quote about the tv show Friends. Your friends are the family you choose.

  4. I love that, because in here that’s true. I don’t think many of my friends in real life are as close as family, but in here they do get that way!
