My cousin thinks she’s under a love spell? Are they real?
No such thing. She just doesn't want to admit that the feelings are really her own, and finds it easier to blame it on an external source. It is probably hard to reconcile that she has feelings that she doesn't want, but welcome to being a human. If she isn't the type to go for this, just tell her you found an anti-spell spell, say some gibberish, and tell her love spells won't work on her now.
Spells aren't real, as others have said. The only thing that makes them "potent" is the fact some people believe that they can be controlled by a "spell".
Are you serious? Love spells exist only in stories. They aren't real. Spells are just pretend.

Magic is not real. Not white, black, grey, red, blue, or green. There are no "schools" of magic. No book, item, ritual, or being can grant you imaginary "powers" - if that was so then the U.S. Government would have these people under lock and key and would be using them as living weapons. No amount of chanting or performing made up "rituals" can alter, affect, or cause any documentable changes or results in Reality. There is no nebulous energy field capable of altering or changing reality or the physical world. If there was such a energy source we would see the results and effects, much the same way we can see the results of electricity – consistent, repeatable, objective effects. Energy follows repeatable patterns that can be observed, documented, and predicted. No amount of wand-waving, circle-drawing, crystal-gazing, candle-lighting, athame-wielding, incense-burning, spell-chanting ritual nonsense can cause a single objective effect. If “magic” was real, and the ability to use it was hereditary, then at the least it would be passed down via Mendelian genetics, expressing 25% of the time – meaning that 1.7 BILLION of the human population would carry the gene. Even if a thousandth of that number expressed the trait actively it would mean over 1.7 MILLION “magic-users” running around and we would have objective, documentable evidence of the existence of “magic”. No such evidence exists. There is no energy field capable of altering reality on a whim. Sorry to make people face the facts, but not one "spell", of any "type" can cause even the smallest objective alteration to Reality. Coincidental results are nothing but wishful thinking and rationalization. Rhymes are not spells. If any random collection of rhyming words created magical effects, then ALL songs would be causing magical havoc anytime anyone sang them with emotion and conviction. Words have power, yes – the power to cause us to think, to choose, to decide, to consider, to change our minds. They do not cause “magic”. There are no such things as “magic spells”. If there were we would see their effects everywhere, everyday. People all over the world would be causing near random effects everywhere just from talking, or screaming, or arguing, or singing. Words are not magic. No amount of emotion, feeling, conviction, willpower, anything – can cause any collection of rhyming or non-rhyming words to create any kind of magical effect or result. Magic isn’t real. If magic was real, like any form of energy we would be able to measure its effects by observation, documentation, testing/experimentation, and comparison of accumulated results for consistency, like any real form of energy. Electricity is real – even though we cannot see it, because it acts the same way, consistently, according to the laws of Energy, and produces the same results over and over and over and over again ad infinitum. If I flip my light switch 1 million times, the light comes on everytime, unless the power is off or my bulb burns out. No evidence exists to even support a hypothesis of “magic”, let alone a working theory. None. And not ONE person giving me thumbs down can provide objective arguments supported by factual data to refute any point I have made. Magic is not real.
Spell works with some people, not with all. Generally love feelings are caused by spirits. Certain situations and circumstances make some spirits to possess a person. Spirits are separate elements. A human being is not a single spirit. A human being doesn't have a spiritual body. A human being during his/her lifetime is living with many spirits which have joined one by one since birth. They are knowledge, intelligence, skills, feelings, emotions, interests and everything. Even thoughts are not your own. For example, when you want to take a decision on a subject, one after another the spirits think and you just listen, choose or reject the ideas which they transmit to your mind through your brain in the form of thoughts. Brain is just a media to connect the spirits to your mind. A mind is just a computer's mind. After the destruction of a computer completely you will not get it's mind. The same is the case with the human beings. Soul is nothing but an energy needed for the functionality of a body. It is not a spirit or anything else. All human beings are just robots made of flesh and bones and toys of the spirits for their games. If her fate is good she may get a nice one. Spirits determine the destiny of the human beings from their daily activities, talks and thoughts too.
They are not.
If a spell could make someone fall in love with someone else, there'd be no gay people in the world. Gay people would've all taken it themselves so that they could fall in love with someone of the opposite sex and not have to deal with all the buIIshit and hate that comes with being gay.
