Today I'm wearing a necklace whose charm is the chemical structure of Oxytocin. Maybe since it's laying against my skin, I'll have a psychosomatic reaction and dose myself! Ha!

What do you do for yourself when you're feeling low on human contact?

Taking a dance class, like salsa or swing has helped me. You get both physical touch, socialize and engage your mind into something new.

I engage strangers in conversation, call friends or family members, get a mani-pedi, or hug my dog.

Pupper! What's his/her name?

@FlippantLlama She’s Bella


Hugs... Nice LONG ones. Also nose rubbing Eskimo Kisses!

Hi again, Sweetness Wild Child Flippant! I'm baaaack... once level 7 as MoonTiger, got pissed off with Senatorial Admin bullshit... Not going there this time, gonna SAVOR Agnostics this thyme, starting with YOUR lovely, fun, brilliant self, if I may...

ADORE your oxy charm... Wanna kiss my way down to it slooowly, tho, starting at your Third Eye... I would love it if you take a minute to feel me doing that, Dear Lady... You are really a force of Loving Nature!

Just a quick reminder that the real brain chemical oxytocin is a double-edged sword: It makes us deeply attracted to lovers, family, and OUR tribes, but at the same time feel hate and revulsion for OTHERS/ OUTSIDERS. That makes sense because the concept of US cannot exist without the concept of THEM. You know... all those whose Security Clearances Pay Grades don't match yours...

Soooo... why don't you ease up on your security clearance long enough for this LOWLY level 2 newbie to slip into your arms and give you a nice, long, hug... Science has shown that we GOTTA hug for at least 30 seconds for oxy, endorphins, and all that good stuff to kick in... Let's hug for a full minute just to be sure, GF! Love You, Kitten Katten! -Brendan Maloney / MoonTigerII 😍😍

Thank you Bob! 😊


I read when I'm feeling lonely. Books transport me.

Try to talk to my brother. Haven't had a lot of luck with him since I didn't understand it when he explained The Calculus to me, but it reminds me that I need to get another dog.

SiouxcitySue Level 7 June 19, 2019

I love the look of it!

thislife Level 7 June 19, 2019

Talk to my cat. 😻😻😻

I become very antsy

I start texting to people or messaging people on facebook or engaging in conversations and debates in my friend's science debate group where I get along with many of the regulars there.


You look so cute in this photo and like a young girl 😊 that necklace is obviously working for you..

When I'm feeling low, I call my gfs and use the conference feature so we can all talk together... It gets crazy sometimes but when we are done, I lay back in my bed and smile at the things said... It's very satisfying...

Cutiebeauty Level 9 June 19, 2019

Thank you, CB 😊 Also, that sounds tremendously helpful and positive!


Sending hugs and cuddles!

ejbman Level 7 June 19, 2019

Did you buy that necklace because of it's structure? It's pretty cool looking!

JaelLorraine Level 4 June 19, 2019

I bought it for the specific compound - I also got Dopamine, for focus!

Work out or get involved teaching

Wow! You are marvelous, FlippantLlama! Thank you for sharing. My best answer for this post, actually, just happens to be my post I just completed a little while ago... which about "Emotional Is The Truest Intimacy", according to me, of course.

Those eyes.. Have it! 😘

Our_existence Level 8 July 11, 2019

What! - why would I want to change my normal state of being?

Haemish1 Level 8 June 19, 2019

Watch movies

bobwjr Level 9 June 19, 2019

Beautiful and it means something and it will be interesting if anyone comes up and recognice the structure

RoyMillar Level 8 June 19, 2019

Right? I'd immediately be much more interested in that person, lol
