Cupid is the god of desire, affection and erotic love. He is the son of goddess Venus and god Mars. In popular culture, Cupid is frequently shown shooting his bow to inspire romantic love, often as an icon of Valentine’s Day. He is viewed now in the current culture as the good-hearted personification of love and courtship in general.
Of course, if you didn’t know, there is now a recent mythical cultural creation making the rounds who goes by the name Anti-Cupid. The Anti-Cupid is a recent mythical creation with no ties to the Greek origins of Cupid. Anti-Cupid was “created” by the growing number of people that are sickened by the modern practices of Valentine’s Day.
Are you on the Anti-Cupid’s menu this year? He’s very hungry.
Now, according to folklore and myth, Anti-Cupid is the reason for relationship troubles and if one has made poor relationship choices then Anti-Cupid is rumored to eat the soul of said persons during the weeks before Valentines day.
So, maybe this post is really about the Anti-Cupid after all.
