Being a slave IS depressingly hollow for me, I will tell you when I found out about the Panther role :mrgreen:

If you need help to get a decent pretty female Alt without spending too much Linden, poke me in SL :egrin:

Now now, Auron...this thread says 'expect'...not 'want'. :)

If I'm involved in a story line with anyone, I want to play it out obviously. The more time, the better. But this is suppose to be fun, not a chore, and sometimes RL has to be handled first....

My last companion I had IC RPed a long term story line with me for over a year, and we logged two + hours at least every other day working on it.

I had a slave once that we shared a story line that I RPed for an hour or two almost every evening for a few months furthering.

Truth be told, a lot of those hours were RPing with him, but a lot of those hours were RPing with his slaves, our characters mutual friends and enemies, etc. So its kinda hard to judge exactly the percentage I was expecting, you know?

On a side note, 'family style' rp makes it easy to keep the story going without having to be there 100% of the time.

@Feorie - that's how I read it as well. Expect is different from a want - it's like minimum to keep my interest going. But then again I am a fan of group scenes too. Guess I am not as devoted a player as some out there. *sigh*. Particularly during the week I am just simply too tired to RP and if it's past 8pm SLT you can forget about getting anything decent from me LOL.

I think the question was 'How much time to you EXPECT?, not How much time do you WANT?' Those are two different beasts.


How much do I expect? As long as I feel like the story is still going somewhere, I'm content. That depends on the other person, though. Some men can make you feel like you've rp'd for hours in ten minutes and some can leave you wanting more after ten hours.



How much do I want? ALLLLL of it!

Yeah and how much I want varies from week to week. Right now I am feeling a surge of creativity with my blog therefore RP will take a back door for a few days. When the weekend comes around though I will be in Rasenna in one form or another. I feel like Gorean players have a really hard time believing that it can be the MAN who wants and wants and wants (This is not aimed at you Darby) - your time in his presence when he is online. The "blame the female player" attitude is rampant in SL gor and at times is a major reason why I lose interest.

My current IC owner is really fab though. He's a great friend and lots fun to rp with.

No, I understand where you're coming from, but I don't think it's a false sentiment entirely. Wanting to be the center of your role-play partner's world is natural for men and women. The problem is how the majority of women handle themselves oocly when that doesn't happen. Our choices are more limited than by virtue of an uneven population so when a man isn't getting the attention he wants it's not big deal. There are 4,567,345 other women willing to give him that attention so he drops a bitch and moves on. Women, on the other hand (most, not all), who don't have 4,567,345 other men in their IMs offering role-play, are forced to resort to sickening lengths to get /his/ attention. If passive aggressive attempts don't work (whining, bitching, sighing), there's always the age old "I've been capped! Come save me!" or some other catastrophe that will prompt him to the rescue. I've seen this same behavior in men, but it usually manifests in IM's to let you know about this awesome new girl he just ran into and how great her rp is in some twisted desire to make you regret not dropping what you were doing when he logged in. ((Yes, guys are whiny betches too!))

It's all so exhausting! I have no problems letting a man know I want to role-play with him. Sometimes I'll toss the ball to somebody I don't even know, especially if I see a lone person on sim. I usually try to invoke the Gorce to convince him or her. The Im goes..."*waves her hand* You /want/ to come role-play with me." I mostly stop at one IM. Two max. Unless I send three.

I think my point is, and I think I have one somewhere in there, that it's okay to let people know-blatantly-that you desire role-play with them. They can bite or not. What have you lost if they don't? Nothing.

Exactly. Make your desire or needs known and if doesn't work out move on as quietly as possible LOL.

I think there's a difference between what someone expects and what they want. Expecting something implies that you are owed it, whereas wanting something just means that you want it. Do I want ALL of my RP partner's time? Yeah. But I'd be selfish and a fool to expect to have even half.
This isn't fucking Survivor. We aren't a tribe.

If I won't put up with an in-character owner trying to control my OOC life, what makes you think I'll put up with you trying to do that?

I confess, that is my weak spot. I rarely start an IM and always try to approach in role-play. I do not have a huge friends list, in fact I do delete it completely the moment I leave a place and start new as I do not talk to people OOC anyway, except I have an OOC friendship, which happens once in a year.

I am quiet a shy person, even when it seems I am not :oops:

I always think, if I can't impress them with my role-play and make them want to see more, then I am the wrong person for them :pft:
