Hi everyone! I am back for another dish of SL Etiquette 101! This is a continuation of our How to Date in Second Life series. Part one focused on communication. In this section I will focus on avatar appearance.

Kultivate Marketing and Social Media Coordinator Jessii Warrhol is back with another edition of SL Etiquette 101! This time she discusses how to date in Second Life, with a focus on communication:
