He was created as a twin brother for EROS, who was in danger of pining away from loneliness.
ANTEROS is basically the Anti-EROS. Instead of causing people to fall madly in love, he takes a more long-term view of relationships and coaxes deeper, less chaotic emotions. Like his brother, he fires arrows, but he deals in selfless mutual love, not the sexy madness of hormones.
He dislikes people who scorn the loving advances of others, and is likely to punish horrible behavior. If someone hideous has the hots for you, take our advice and turn them down gently.
For further advice on matters of the heart, please feel free to ask ANTEROS directly. He is available for consultation from his office in Piccadilly Circus, London. Yes, the famous statue of a Greek God firing an arrow across London is really him, not his erotic brother EROS. The Shaftesbury Monument symbolizes selfless charitable love and has nothing to do with sexy romance, so please behave yourselves.
