Oh my goodness, Sweetheart, real magick doesn’t work this way.  Where do I start?

First, You can’t “make” anyone like you.  Even though there are spells out there, love spells, that can draw someone to you (and a few darker forms of magick to bind someone to you); this kind of magick is always fraught with karmic repercussions– you think you want something, but what you get might be something totally unexpected and unsatisfactory.  And these kinds of spells are very hard, if not impossible, to reverse.  And anyway, you don’t want a young man to ‘like’ you just because you’ve used magick on him.  You want a young man to like you because he’s drawn to you naturally in some way. 

Second, I know of no magick spell to insure that you will be in the same place at the same time, hour after hour, day after day, with another human being– as in ‘all the same classes’.  Real magick doesn’t work the way you’ve seen in the movies.  1) it works in it’s own time-frame (sometimes with moon cycles) 2) it does not offer instant gratification and results  3) sometimes what we want isn’t always good for us, and there is a higher power (whether you call it God, Goddess, The All, or whatever), and this higher power has a clearer view of our destiny and what’s best for us, and even our most magickal endeavors will not manifest.

“I need it done today…”  The best magick is timed correctly with magickal correspondences– the moon phase, planetary hours, different days of the week for different energy and magick, etc. etc.  And, just to emphasize it once more, magick works with the laws of physics, magick moves energy in a natural way for beneficial change.  You can’t snap your fingers and produce instant results.

If you like this young man, and you would like to become friends, you’ll get a lot farther by 1) introducing yourself and starting a conversation  2) making a point to say hello when the circumstance presents itself  3) maybe finding out what kinds of extracurricular activities he’s interested in and then only if you’re interested in the same things, join the club or group.

Bright Blessings,

PS–

“I’ll do anything”…Oh, my.  This made me cringe.  There’s a few things you should *Never* do when it comes to love and relationships.

You should never compromise your principals.

In the course of a relationship, you should never lose your own identity. (Maintain a healthy ego and self-image; be proud of your strengths, your personality, your work, your achievements, your talents.)

You should never become involved in a relationship that will put you in the position of ‘victim’.

When you love someone, it’s natural (and usually positive and unselfish) to put them first, but don’t put someone else’s desires, wishes, plans, and expectations before your own physical, mental, and spiritual well being.
