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:

I have decided to make this a 3 part series and will focus on communication, appearance, and dating. For this first part I decided to start with communication.

Welcome to another helping of SL Etiquette 101! In this edition, I will discuss how to handle gossiping and rumors from both sides of the equation…
