I'm just wondering is it right to use love potions or love arrows from cupid to get someone instantly love with you like it was so easy and doesn't need to work very hard at getting the relationship?
Best case scenario, the arrow/potion is bring out what that person already feels for you and was maybe too timid to act on, but even then lowering inhibitions or deliberately taking someone out of their normal mindset to a more dulled one really makes it less and less likely that the person is giving actual consent.
I can't think of any situation where it'd ever be considered right to use such a thing on someone. Best case it's highly morally and ethically questionable and every other case it is outright wrong.
The only scenario I could think of where it would be even remotely ok is if both people affected already had feelings for each other but couldn't act on them. Even then it's a pretty drastic and questionable method to use for something like that. I always did dislike love potion/love arrow episodes in shows, unless it was in a comedy and the joke pulled off really well.
A cherub like Cupid firing love arrows at people is typically meant to be metaphorical in most forms of media. A sort of interpretation and personification for one’s own newfound emotions.
“Love arrows” are usually a joke in whatever media they’re not from.
Most of the time no, even if my horny self say otherwise. I say the only scenario is when both person already like each other, they are a terrible person, if the other person is willing to get shot or drink the love potion, maybe use it as a way to make a forve loveless marriage less miserable and those are some of the only scenarion I can think on top of my head where that would be acceptable and not just plain rape.
