BATTLE OF THE SEXES- What Makes Our Hearts Race? Nehem Resident Reporting…


Almost everyone who started out in second Life©, did so to play a game. However, with real people behind the screen, sometimes you are bound to fall in love.

So many of us, (myself included) Come to the virtual world because we are seeking something in our lives. Weather it is due to a physical disability and the desire to have a job, or if it´s more for social interaction, we find ourselves logging on daily to fulfill our wildest dreams. The best part about such a fantastic platform, is that unlike other social networking media, we have the ability to physically spend time doing activities that are just like those in the real world. Not only can we spend such time, It is time spend with real people from around the globe. When we find others with common interests, even though it may not originally be intended, we find ourselves in deep friendships, and sometimes even love. There is an age old question that remains in both our real and virtual lives. What turns the opposite sex on, and how can you prepare yourself for love?

I got to speak with several residents about their thoughts and feelings about virtual love, and what turns them on about the other gender, and also what turns them off. Lets take a look, and find out how you can be successful in the battle of the sexes! 


Ahhh ladies. We are romantic creatures at heart. We usually want a man who will sweep us off our feet, and make us smile! What did you have to say about men in second life?

" Just like real life, you have to feel an attraction to the avatar, and the personality behind it. A man who knows when to stand up, but also when to stand down. I like someone with a sexy mind, but not too vulgar, and someone who is desirable in the bedroom." - VVildeyez

"I am attracted to people who are open , friendly and have a great sense of humor. " - Nomie

"Well I like guys in guys with lots of personality charming, kind and understanding. its a plus if he has a nice avi" - Teah


Now that we know what makes the ladies swoon, it’s time to see what makes them turn tail! 

" I do not like dramatic men, with a whimpy demeanor, and I really hate men who lie."- VVildeyez

 "I don't like rude people with bad attitudes especially toward women. " - Nomie

"What sends me away is drama, too many girls liking him and if he has no time for me or at least not trying to spend anything when he is on."
- Teah


Men. To us women, they are seductive and mysterious beings. They drive us insane, but sometimes it’s hard to know what they want! Well be reassured! You are about to find out the opinions of real men and what makes them wild. Here are their turn- ons! 

"I like a girl with a bent mind similar to my own, someone who likes to have fun and laugh without complicating things. And they actually have to be female. "- Dougy Rossini 

"I like a girl with a great personality and confidence, someone who is not afraid to try new things and go on an adventure" -Egore Kingmaker

 "I like a woman who has red hair, I have always loved that. someone with a sexy mind, who is just a little perverted, but not to the point of vulgarity" - Frost

"Ladies!! Just be yourself! Most men love a girl who is not fake!" - Anonymous


We know what turns a man on, but now.. What makes him run?

"I dislike someone who is stuck up, and thinks they are better than everyone else"- Dougy

"I really hate when a girl is snobby, and I am very very offended by racism. I do not stand for it."- Egore Kingmaker

" I am not a fan of women that throw themselves at me. I do not like a girl who will take off all their clothes and just put themselves in front of me."-Frost 
" I do not like a girl who puts on a show. I would rather have an honest woman, who is herself. " - Anonymous

As we can see, the battle of the sexes is ever raging, but finding love in Second Life© doesn´t have to be complicated. All it takes is honestly and willingness to be yourself, a little time, and someone with common interests. As with anything, taking it slow and having confidence in yourself is the best course of action, and you will be falling in love in no time!!

Special Thanks for participating in this study of sexes!
