He stood at the window of the empty cafe and watched the activites in the square and he said that it was good that God kept the truths of life from the young as they were starting out or else they’d have no heart to start at all. ― Cormac McCarthy, All the Pretty Horses
An acquaintance recently partnered. It only lasted a few days. If she hadn't blogged it, I would have missed it. She's not a noob either. She was a confirmed SL bachelorette. The guy she partnered was no noob either and an old friend. Maybe that was the problem. They were both past partnership age. If one of them had been a noob, perhaps it would have lasted longer.

I think I'm way past partnership age. I don't have the heart for it. The most I can muster is something like shared distraction.


  1. I have the heart for it, otherwise I would not feel the hurt I feel that's very real. It even hurts me in my RL. I'll never do it again though. It isn't worth the pain.

    1. That may prove to be a wise decision, but never is a long time. After awhile, your perspective will probably change.
