I came to find IMVU on February 3rd, 2011, after I saw it being advertised on Facebook. Now once upon a time... I loved the Yahoo user rooms when they were still active and kicking. (Yep, that shows my age....lol!) So when I saw " IMVU: a virtual chat experience", I thought, why not? Of course I went through the noob period until I found my own unique style and started on my quest to learn the client and find friends. Then in October 2011, a life altering event in my life cataclysmically caused me to go into a severe depression and triggered anxiety and agoraphobia issues that I still struggle with to this day. IMVU gives me the opportunity to talk to people and have some semblance of a social life. While certain individuals on IMVU has caused their share of drama, I've met some really great people and have made lasting friendships in these past almost 6 years. In November of 2012 I joined the ranks as an IMVU developer. While I may not be all that great at it, creating is relaxing, and takes my mind off the stressors in the "real world". IMVU is my getaway, my safe haven. In fact, my typing proficiency and creative writing skills have been enhanced as a result of my time spent here. In conclusion, I know I will be on IMVU until such time that they decide to shut it down. It will be at which point I guess I'll have to see where the road leads to next.

what imvu means to me.
I have always loved chatting but have a hard time chatting to people face to face. when I was 14 I used a cb radio and as I got older and tec got better I chatted on my phone then I got a computer. they were the old days lol. I have 3 real life kids and I raised them as a single mum for 9 years. one night my rl daughter and I were messing around on the computor looking for anything really and I found imvu at first I wasn't that into it because of the outfits in default they wernt me lol but I was impressed with the little avatar and how it could move using spots and the rooms were lovely. one day after not using imvu for a while I found out I cold get credits using my mobile phone well that was the day I became addicted, really I was addicted so after 8 years I'm still addicted lol I love imvu it is my escape from reality and I can be anyone or thing I want to be. I am discovering so much each day with imvu. over the years imvu as made so many changes for example the avatars have changed from being bobbly heads to actually looking real and the outfits are wonderful. i love entering the comps and am a member of a few groups that do outfits comps and other comps. before joining thoses groups i didn't know how to edited a picture and I'm still learning. so to sum it all up what imvu means to me is an escape an escape from real life and all the troubles real life brings and takes me to another world were i can be free to be me.
my avatar (well one of them anyway i have over 100 for the same account)

Ok,first of all,I think just the fact is NOT a contest is already a smart move from Shannon Wink,and second,I think,my opinion...just the fact you show your REAL YOU, shows the LOVE for IMVU,as Shannon said...being proud of it Smile.
I will edit to post a picture later,but what I can't really do is talking Rolling Eyes ,there's 2 reasons:im VERY shy ,and I'm a very bad english speaker,lol,unless you want me to talk in spanish Razz(joke).
Well,when I first tried Imvu,I was very impressed to see all 3D stuff around me,and first thing I was saying like for myself was...I love it...I want to do that...how that can be done...first "impact" with the 3D world was like WOW,THIS IS JUST AWESOME...
Over the years I meet a lot of people around the world,thats a lovely thing,not all were how I expected,but ,yes...I managed to make some friends on here ,to meet REAL ppl,showing they real "face"and I love that...Who make a difference on the real world and Imvu or refuse to mix them,in my opinion,not showing love for imvu...
What keept me here was the curiosity how to make 3D objects and bring them to life:),and today I can say I'm so happy I managed to discover it and loving it with any new stuff I make,even they are not the best(I hate this word,lol,is soooo relative,anyways)or better said ,even if they are not perfect,I'm very proud of myself really,and loving it every day more...any thing MADE WITH LOVE ,looks just awesome,even is not perfect

Hello, My name is Ellie and this is a picture of Dean and I taken on Christmas Eve 2016 in Victoria, BC. Dean (DeanSteele) and I met in an IMVU chat room 2 years ago, and we are engaged to be married in real this Summer. Once my visa is approved (I'm American) I am going to move to Victoria, BC to be with my sweetheart.

My true passion is texturing mesh and I do it merely for enjoyment as well as passion for creating, art, graphic design. 3D is so much fun and I want to thank IMVU for allowing us to create within their virtual world. Also a great big THANK YOU as well for bringing Dean and I together ♥ It took me 50 years to meet my soulmate ♥

Imvu for me was the realization of a dream, I was able to meet new people, make many friends, live a perfect life here, discovered many good things here as bad, but it exists everywhere, it's crazy for me to think that I'm in imvu a 7 years ago, here I had loves that unfortunately did not last, but I know that all experience is good and valid. Immu joins the useful to pleasant. The imvu changed my life for the better Very Happy

IMVU has changed the way of my social skills by, giving me more confident in talking with other people besides my family. Usually I'm a person that doesn't really like to open my mouth or anything. but this app has challenged me so much to do more and say more period because first of all I am really shy person. so what does app has shown me to do it on my mouth more, bmore social and get out of my comfort zone most of the time. I use this app most of the time I have a lot of friends on here. I will not uninstall this app ever. This is great for socializing having fun talking to friends and finally being nice. I will most definitely not positively uninstall this app because people get a lot from it. although I've shared it with most of my friends they also have this app also. Keep it up IMVU!
