    Hi!

    Welcome! I think you're gonna like it here!!!!
  2. Drive by Fruiting sounds so good! I am not sure how I have missed it! I am struggling to pick out my sale freebies. I am ordering LP Carnival, LP Pumpkin. LV's Sweet Pussy, and Petit 4.2...and some sparkly store goods? For freebies...maybe Aurora, Pie In the Sky, Sticky, Sweet, Indiscretion, and Howl? Any suggestions from my sweet scent loving peeps?

    New Releases for SEPTEMBER 2016!

    Damn! This stuff sounds like it is right down my alley!! So excited to get a sampler!
  4. CK...I am just catching up here! And wow....biggest hugs to you dear! I think it is safe to say that you are the biggest blessing in this man's life. And he gets it..he just doesn't know how to show it properly. It looks like his affection and love for you manifests in all the wrong ways and all of the negative is most likely based on his fear of losing you. I am really sad for him. I don't have much to add here except to say that I think it is going to be very hard for him to seek any counseling or treatment. As a counselor...and even though my experience is generally limited to dealing with teenagers and their parents...I have found that it is extremely hard for men to participate in counseling. There is some stigma out there that makes them think they will be perceived as weak or less masculine if they do so. When you add in his age...where that generation is fairly stoic and believes in handling your problems yourself...that makes the likelihood of him seeking help even more slim. As I am from the South...which seems like the hyper-masculinity hotspot of the earth...it just isn't seen as a strong manly thing to do. I am not trying to generalize or stereotype at all...this is what I have dealt with personally. I am sure there are exceptions, but in my experience the majority think this way. With that being said, you have done all that you can. I admire your selfless attitude toward him and I sure wish I could be more like that. Just make sure that you take care of you first. Don't put his wellness above your own or let your life suffer in any way because of his situation. I think this is one situation that is what it is. And sometimes you have to love others as much as they will allow you to..that is all you can do. Love you dear! I am sending prayers his way...but more your way! Xoxo
  5. Yay! It sounds like success! I am so glad to know that you are back at it! I was wondering how your leg was healing.

    Hello

    Hi! Glad to have you!
  8. I cannot wear Sneaky Clean. In all fairness, I don't know if it is the Phero or the scent but it gives me a raging migraine. This hurts my heart because it is so beautiful!

    Tribute

    Is this sweet at all? I think I really love oud. Manor is my favorite Solstice Scents perfume and I THINK it is the oud that makes it so unique.

    hi everyone!

    Hi! Glad you found the perfumes and the forum!
  14. Welcome to the forum! I have little experience with pheros so I will not chime in on any advice there. However...Honeyed LP is my favorite!! My Mr. tends to respond pretty well to anything that smells good! Because of that I just buy what I like scent wise...so you definitely made a good choice with HLP!! Good luck and I look forward to reading your reviews!

    Can men use EOW and what happens when they do?

    Hi BlackWolf! :-) It sounds like you are really into music...what kind of music do you play? Do you play an instrument? Do you have any videos up anywhere? Most of us on here are pretty into music as well. Music is a pretty "social" hobby. Hopefully you will be able to meet people through that interest.
