I think part of the difficulty there is that there are at least 3 types of relationships - IC on SL, OOC on SL, and RL. Can cause issues since some people believe that any personal relationship regardless of immediacy (i.e. email, virtual, telephone etc) is real if it is based on and interacted as real emotional attachment. I hold with this. I firmly believe that a relationship is not made real by physical immediacy but by the real emotional basis behind it. There are those who disagree with me, and feel that any relationship that is not explicitly RL is not RL regardless of whether or not they are personally emotionally invested.
