I'm curious, have these persons told their respective S.O's that they had done spells like that prior to meeting? If so, to your knowledge, were the affected parties upset by that revelation?

I want to be clear, it was not "Make someone love me", but "Help me engage with this energy to meet the person who can be the kind of partner I'm seeking, and who is also seeking me."

And yes, both partners know it (they're also good friends of mine), and are fine with it. (Everyone in this equation is Pagan, witchy, and a user of magic themselves, though one of the people had no formal training before meeting their partner.)

If I remember correctly (and like I said, it's been a while since they met - actually, a bit over 7 years in one case, and a bit less in the other).. in both cases, it was really clear to the relevant partner that there was something powerful and engaging (but not compelling in the sense that they had no choice) at work - like I said, a set of unlikely, but plausible circumstances bringing people together so they could create a relationship together. Very intense at the start, and settling down a bit given a year or so. And in both cases, the other partner was looking for something to change in the relationships in their life/was at a stage where they were considering new romantic relationships/etc.

The "Walk into the room, and know this person is going to be important to your life, but not yet how" thing, not "Walk into the room and be madly in love for no good reason."

The person in question (who, like I said, is someone whose ethics I have a great deal of respect for: I'm sure you understand that I'm being careful here because it's something that touches on other people's privacy, so I don't want to share identifying details) basically described it as opening a door - or maybe a floodgate - to ride energy that was already there and available, but that had not been flowing freely in either of their lives. Opening that door created possibilities that weren't realistic before, but it was still the choice of the other partners what to do about it, whether they wanted to make that connection, etc.

I was aware that it wasn't a LOVE ME NOW forceful act. Thanks for sharing. Smiley

So now it's story time. Have love spells ever worked for you or someone you know?

Unfortunately, yes. I've seen one much too effective. A friend of mine did that a few years ago. She wanted to bring love to her life, just meet someone to love. She made the spell, described her ideal man and all the "usual" stuff. One tiny bit just was forgotten, mentioning that she wants a heterosexual man. For like two years she was really obsessed by one of my friends, who is utterly gay. Things went really bad and it took a lot to get her over it, a total cut off was needed and they haven't spoken to each other in years now.

So yes. I do think love spells can work. And there you have the two stories of my attempts.

That was quite interesting. You made a believer out of me for sure.

This is a discussion, not a request. I want to know if you guys truly believe in love spells. I sort of on the fence with this. I've seen love spells that simply bring "romance" in your life, and that I can wrap my mind around. Then there's love spells that focus around a particular person. That, I have a harder time grasping, only because we all know that we can't bend another's will with magic.

And even if you do a love spell just to bring romance in your life, what if something goes wrong and instead of romance, you just get loves of sexual advances? That could happen.

So now it's story time. Have love spells ever worked for you or someone you know?

Love spells are a powerfull tool in the pagan warrior monks arsenal. Magik is a war not against any men but against LIFE. YOU BEND LIFE TO YOUR VERY WILL BY THE POWER OF YOUR UNBRIDLED QUANTUM SPIRIT. Part of taking the leap in to the occult lifestyle is the shedding of mediocrity. If you love someone and you are not doing everything in your power to make them love you back THEN YOU DONT DESRV THEM.

This is a discussion, not a request. I want to know if you guys truly believe in love spells. ..

Truthfully no I do not think they work.  What I think they do is make the caster more certain in self and that makes them more confident.  In some ways almost the inverese of a curse in that the curse in part relies on the target thinking they are cursed.  In the love spell it makes the caster or target of the spell more certain and confident that "Love" will come to them so they become more aware of thier surroundings and those that are there with them.  Many times making them see people who have been around them for some time already.

Of course the disadvantage is that one may become overconfident in their beliefs and opinions of self.  Then it becomes catastrophic when thier desire does not return to them or they look through rose colored glasses and see what was not there or in the way they had hoped and desired.

yeah, that's not remotely what I would call *love* ....

obsession, maybe.  Stalking, creepiness, shotgun-earning .. but not love.

Again, this doesn't explain the kind of spells aimed at bringing new people into your life. Who just happen to appear very soon after the spell, and match the qualities you ask for.

I can as more confidence also leeds people into areas or places they might not normally go to.  It also causes more people to notice them as they present a different presence.  As for qualities most have been there the whole time and seldom does it come from afar.  Thats after spending 23 years in the military travelling hte world and seeing quite a bit of it in action.
