Time to stop being a lurker LOL

Recommended Posts

I've been working on an intro post for about 30 minutes now and decided I am such a nerd and wow do I have issues! Delete and start over.

 

I am waiting on my first order of samples and not only can I not wait for them to get here I wish I already knew what to order full size and what else I might fancy! After today anything with SWS and/or PP sounds like something I'd like to drown myself in the hot-tub with.

 

Starting off with:

 

Empathy & Harmony

Darling Catalina w/Popularity Potion

Unisexy Perfect Match

Stealing Heaven

Lap of Luxury w/ SWS

Message in a Bottle

Balm Bomb

Phero Girl

... and a few Wax melts to neutralize the men in this house.

 

While I was orignally looking for something to help the husband (I think I'll refer to him as Mr. C, for "congeniality" as almost all seem to love/like him) remember I exist as the sex goddess he used to think I am/was (not sure anymore), I realized that LP has so many things my head started to spin. I could wear something when my introvert youngest son (late teens) needs a boost and I am too down on myself that day, or like today when I left our retail store for the day and told my staff if they needed anything to call me and got a smuggy laugh that probably meant "as if" (I am a white woman running a business full of latino men -hubby isn't latino- and I don't think they realize or care, that I also, own the store; it's so 50 years ago where I live sometimes) ... yeah, thats the icing of my life; zero respect.

 

Starting to feel cursed ... whole other topic. Or not.

 

Funny. The thing I came for and Mara suggested, Phero Girl, might be the last one I try. Mr. C hasn't been interested in years. Like most, we have stress. Like many, he can only focus on the big picture and while yes the future has me right by his side it sure feels lonely ... it'd be nice if only a time or two a week I could get him to remember there is an "us" that needs to be nurtured.

 

I've read so many posts here I wish I could remember which of you unknowingly helped me to look for scents/phero's that will aid in rebuilding as there is hope. He still holds my hand often while watching TV and/or falling alseep, but he has certainly lost his desire. I don't think he's even looking at porn anymore. YAY and uh-oh all at the same time! LOL

 

Since work always manages to come home with "us" and image is more than it should be, if I have not already picked it, what would you suggest I try for work? I am surrounded by (employees and customers) super macho king of the world men all day who literally, each thinks of himself as the Senior Commander of the Isle of Narcisism?

Everyone thinks that, but the truth is we're all more alike than we think. :lol:

Welcome livinlavidacabo! I'm glad you decided to join us :)

 

I'm not sure what I'd use for your work environment but I'm sure the others will help you out! As for your hubby, Sexpionage always works for me! And, they're lots more pheros for relationships you can try!

 

Best wishes, and I hope you have great results :)

Hi! I strongly suggest SWS for work.

If you had to put yourself in a category would you say you're alpha or beta socially? Only if youre alpha or "in the middle", I would suggest experimenting with leather or dominance.

Depending on your and their ages, cougar might be an idea as well.

Welcome !!

:yeahthat: (to Luna's post, since I've been typing so long I'm sure someone else has popped a post in where I thought mine would land).

 

Hi and welcome to the forum!

 

I think you've made some good phero choices already. Swimming with Sharks might be exactly what you need for working with a bunch of guys who don't respect you. And if that doesn't work, maybe hit them with some Dominance! :lol: That might straighten them out!

I tend to favour Open Windows for work, since I work with the public, and depend on whatever charm I might possess to make a living. It's really a great blend, and possibly worth a try. It works extremely well in non-work situations, too.

 

In terms of bonding pheros, I tend to rely most heavily on Perfect Match, Heart & Soul, and Cuddle Bunny. Perfect Match is just a lovely phero blend full stop. I most often use it when it's just the two of us at home, and it has a wonderful effect on both my boyfriend and me. It makes us feel cozy and giggly, and simply happy to be in each other's company. We tend to chat a lot when I wear it, and my BF, who is not exactly a tactile person, tends to touch me a lot more often, which is nice for me. But even if neither of us has nothing to say, this phero just makes for a pleasant time and a pleasant interaction. I hope you love it and find it as useful as I have. It really is wonderful.

 

I find Heart & Soul has a bit of a different effect. It's still a happy, cozy kind of vibe, but BF's focus is more on *me*, and it sometimes feels as if this phero helps remind him what it is that he liked so much about me in the first place - and that's always a great place to go if you ask me. I often find that he'll do little things for me when I wear it, like ask if I want a cup of tea or if he should make the coffee. It's

just little things, but it helps to know that he's thinking of me. And in that way, it has a great, almost calming effect on me. I really love this phero blend, too. And when you're just out and about, it makes people happy to see you, and want to chat with you for-EVER. I always call it "The Sweetheart Phero" because that's kind of what it does: it makes you everyone's sweetheart. ;)

 

Cuddle Bunny is nice for it's own reasons, and I don't ever want to be without it again. It's sexual, yes, but it also produces a caring vibe which, for me at least, was very important when I first started dabbling with pheros, and trying to keep my boyfriend' interest when I thought it might be flagging. (It's also quite fun to wear out and about!)

 

Anyway, I'm sure there will be lots more advice headed your way! Take care, and I'm sure you'll have lots of fun experimenting.

 

And BTW, Phero Girl is *dreamy*. And extremely effective! ;)

Thank you for the welcome's!

 

Tyvey, that is a good question. I'm the petitie girl in the corner that everyone talks over and forgets is there until I clearly look unhappy, and then I'm the girl that makes everyone uncomfortable because I'm not being friendly enough - so I'm told (the latter part). I feel alpha but tend to attract ... narcisists.

 

Eggers, I was thinking of SWS and then I think I read someone else suggested PP towards the middle or end of the day. I like the suggestion of anything with Open Windows and I thank you.

 

I have a feeling I am going to become a hoarder! I am already working on my 2nd order without having received the first. I may not have a bath tub but some of the scrubs are calling my name and I am already regretting not getting a kit. :)

Cops are invaluable. Srsly.

If you're going to hoard something, LPs are well-suited to that purpose! :lol:

Hello and welcome to LPMP!

 

I see Eggers has written you a small novel (haha) - seriously though you will find everyone here is very helpful.

 

I take it you two have been married for a while? Hmmmm.

 

Cops. Yes. Very much so.

 

Work: Swimming with Sharks. It works well for me. There is no mistaking I am there but it helps cut down on any drama.

 

Again - welcome to the boards.

Welcome!! You've already got so much good advice! I think Perfect Match is a good one to try, and of course cops!cops!cops! OCCOs are great, and so is Phero Girl. SWS is a great choice for work, maybe try something with Leather or Dom in it, too?

Can't wait to hear how you like your choices!!

Boy am I late! Welcome!Welcome! Great first choices, and so the addiction ensues :D But what a lovely addiction to have...

 

I'm going to get in line with the others about SWS and future possibilities of Dom and/or Leather for work. I'm thinking you may want to go in the Dom direction. Being as you're working with self absorbed males I would be concerned that anything with Est may make them feel like you could be pushed around or see you as weak (it's a very feminine phero). I think it might take a high amount of Est to bring that out though. In a personal relationship, Est in our house brings out the cuddle lubbins from my hubby, but with macho guys at work who already think they rule the roost I'm not so sure. I would like to see how they would interact with Dom though for sure! If you're alpha, then that blend should be congruent with who you already are and play off well. Another fav for making friends and influencing people on a more subtle approach is La Femme Mystere...LOOOOVE its effects on others in my workplace. I also work with a fair number of latinos ^_~

 

PP and Cougar are always great socials...if your "guys" are just inconsiderate these could bump them into a more favorable disposition to deal with.

 

Perfect Match is favored in our house. My hubs is always a sweetie when I where it. Since it's designed to be unisex, I find adding something with cops for us gals really revs up his attention in the romance department (any OCCO flavor you find appealing would be great...White Shield would totally compliment Unisexy and just about everything else you might want to layer it with!)

 

Pheros may not be the end all - cure all for all that ails you, but you already know that. They surely can enhance what is already there and take it to more interesting places with a bit of work on your end. Remember - you ARE beautiful! You ARE worth the time and attention AND a bit of pampering to boot! You ARE a goddess, you carry yourself like one and you are a commanding force to be reckoned with...and the well behaved will be justly rewarded by your graces :love:

 

So glad you've joined us and look forward to your future adventures!

 

Many blessings! :heart:

Welcome!

 

I think I would agree that SWS would be a good choice for work....possibly even Dominance. Get them in a spray so they diffuse better.

 

For home, I would also suggest Open Windows for lifting moods of everybody, and for playtime, you may want to look at LAM and OCCO. They are both great basic sexual blends. LAM has A-nol as well as cops, so it adds a happy vibe to the mix. And, if your man is sensitive to heavy scents, the LAM has a nice light scent.

You all just made me cry and I've done that enough today. LOL

 

Thank you for warm reception.

 

My first order is a measly 10 minute drive from me and the office was closed so I will have to wait till Wednsday :-(

 

Sad, as tomorrow is my birthday and this is my gift to myself.

 

I already feel so at home here.

Welcome!

 

I wish I could offer recommendations but really you're just going to have to keep trying different pheros and scents until you find something that works.

I still haven't found something that works on my boyfriend, but I sure seem to keep finding stuff that works on complete strangers!

The thought of having to go through so many LP's to find one that works on Mr.C is daunting but if they work on everyone in our social circle I'm good with that. Especially considering that I just got my order! Thank you for the gifties Mara and John!! I'd do a happy dance but I'm in bed with the flu :-(

 

Interesting thing that happened ... went to my acupuncturist to insta-fix me (works every time) but when I got there I realized he was still on holiday. Boo. Figured since I was out and in the area I could pick up my order and as soon as I opened the box and started sniffing the wax melts the dizziness went away. Self effects? LOL

 

Couldn't decide what to wear being sick in bed but decided upon Perfect Match. My sniffer must be broken (its not a head cold I have) as on me, it smells a little floral and baby powder like with a touch of vanilla. It's nice and light and if it didn't have phero's in it, I probably would have slathered on a lot but being a pheromone virgin, I'm taking it slow. ;-)

Welcome! Most of the time when I'm sick I just don't want to wear perfume at all (that's actually one of the telltale signs I'm sick to begin with :lol: ) but when I do it's usually something that's fresh, calming or both. Heart's Ease and With Every Breath are great for that, anything with lavender, really. You'll find Mara's lavenders aren't the sharp kind but the soft, soothing kind. Certain florals like Xuehua Xing are great for that too.

Funny you mentioned Xuehua Xing as Mara gifted me with that in those cute micro sample bottles and I was drawn to that scent while sick in bed with a nasty stomach flu complete with a weeks worth of vertigo and I know I shouldn't have phero'd, but I couldn't help myself!

 

Reviews will be hard as I jumped in with the PM on me and used the wax melts with TH and BB on the entire family (Mr C plus teen boys) to chill everyone out while I rested all at the same time (I didn't combine the wax melts)

 

I do know one thing for sure ... it's only been a short time, but I will be posting in the thread asking if our lives have changed soon!
