84. Second Life is a popular online game in which adults have avatars to represent their online persona. People can create the avatar to look any way they would like and they essentially live a regular online life.

Most online relationships are more satisfying than real life ones. B. People with personality disorders tend to play online games. C. The players' second lives are seeping into their first lives. D. Playing online games is a good way to begin a new relationship. 85. Which group is increasingly relying on the online world as a source of support?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
