    Welcome to the Virtual Pet list forum!

We have a lot of virtual pet sites' owners and sim game owners that are quite active on our online community. Along with artists, writers and programmers that come here looking for work and games to work for. Our members who are artists sell art in our art marketplace and programmers are allowed to sell their scripts in the programming marketplace. We've been opened since 2011, however, we've owned our domain name since 2004 and since then we've grown and expanded quite nicely. What are you waiting for, why don't you join today?

    Our list of virtual pet sites and directory of sim games have a lot of games listed that you can try out and possibly enjoy. If you're still curious about a game to play, you can check out some of our game reviews that were written by some of our great contributors and our interviews with respective virtual pet site owners, sim game owners, artists, writers and programmers that have done work in this industry as a whole.

    I changed my life a few years ago. I was in a wreck, but I managed to turn my life around for the better. Now, I'm happy as can be without getting into any trouble. So, I feel that my life is a lot better than it was years ago.

    So, have you ever turned your life around for the better?

    Hm, well I've never done anything that is too bad, but a few years ago I was slacking off in my classes because I thought it would make me 'cooler.' Therefore I was basically failing. Then I decided it would probably be better to actually turn it around, since it's what my future depended on.

    I know, it's sort of a sad excuse, but I haven't had to many experiences in the past few years! xD

    I went to art college.

    Seriously. I was doubting my decision in sophomore/junior year (and I still wonder if spending all that money was necessary), but because of it I've learned to just pick one direction and go with it, even if I'm not the best at what I do. It's really, REALLY boosted my confidence in myself and my ability to make a living doing what I love. Plus, after four years I'm finally making good friends!

    That's because I went back and edited this thread and re-wrote it. So, have you ever changed your life around for the better or anything? I also like how I haven't had a relapse for my Bipolar in about two years come April. I feel great and I'm proud I've remained healthy for so long.

    Yes, when I finally quit my crappy Home Depot job. It changed everything, and I met the coolest girl and it's like we live in a fairy tale. :D

    @uglytrolls

    I went through that a few years back. Sounds similar, he didn't like my friends, so I slowly stopped seeing them until he was the only person I was ever with. We lived together so he was able to keep me from doing much at all. He even told me how long he wanted my hair (first thing I did after it ended was cut all my hair off XD ). There were some sexual abuse type issues as well, and the always fun emotional abuse and neglect. Good times.

    I always prided myself on being independent and strong but you just never know how you'll react to it until it happens. It really sneaked up on me a little bit at a time, I didn't even realize what was happening. :/

    I'm glad to hear that bro. How long did you work at Home Depot before you decided to quit? Women are such fun. I don't know where I'd be today if it wasn't for my fiance fixing and healing my heart from my previous relationships.

    I worked there for 3 and a half years. I was making really good money too, around $1700 a month but it just wasn't worth it. It was about the most stressful thing I've ever been thru. But things have flip flopped! Turn abouts is fair play!

    I'm glad your fiance supports and helps you. Cool man!
