I don’t really buy the argument “specific targeting with attraction spells interferes with free will.” People treat romantic and/or sexual attraction like a game. We are first led to believe there is a set concept in what’s attractive and what isn’t based on certain qualities, that only certain people have it or on higher levels than others. Then we learn that even if we aren’t the hottest person in the room, we can still obtain the necessary qualities to be considered attractive, or become attractive with other qualities, particularly our own. In other words, various tricks.
Let’s face it. Romance and sex is something of a competition. Whether between two romantic rivals, or with one person trying to court the other. Because of which, we use these tricks to improve our charisma, or as many people call it “Game.” Many of these hacks involve manipulation to some degree. Triggering an intended reaction or response, creating an intended perception, some form of influence over someone. Isn’t that “Interfering with free will?” However, so long as the one being influenced isn’t taken advantage of or hurt, they don’t seem to mind.
So like I said,some dating tricks deal with perception. A person, or object, can be perceived differently by each person. Someone who’s really smart may be seen as interesting by one person or boring by another. We use tricks to influence how someone perceives us and maintain the perception.
So if use tricks to influence a specific someone we are trying to date, can’t we use magick to do the same without resorting to mind control? Is there a way to have someone perceive us in a positive way, a way that is actually doable, and still be to them considered sexy and attractive?
