I Put A Spell On You

Never use magic to get a date. Don’t even try. It will only get you into trouble. The latest issue of New Witch (article not available online), a pagan magazine from northern California, details why lonely, witchcraft-curious neophytes shouldn’t dabble in magic for superficial reasons, like finding a date. “Magic isn’t safe,” writes the “therioshaman” named Lupa. Some people try to delve into the spirit world to escape their personal problems, but according to Lupa, advanced magic will force people to “face the scariest adversary of all—him or herself.” The single and lonely should try the interpersonal charm, and leave the magical charms to the experts.

the general consensus as i understood was that using magic ON another person is Not Done, but go ahead and use magic to make YOURSELF more attractive/confident/etc is fair game.

So much of a relationship with another person is how an individual feels about herself; trying to control the other person, through manipulation or magic, doesn't cultivate the authentic relationship a person craves. This is good - don't use magic to date!
