Just echoing what's previously been stated. With the addition of my own two cents.
For starters, learn your Basics before you try to do ANY sort of spell. Also, Don't doubt yourself. Your own self-esteem can be detrimental to the outcome of your spells. Belief and positivity is key to successful spells. Try a "seeking true love" spell instead of a spell targeting a particular individual.
I did a spell of my own creation to find true love once. I wasn't targeting anyone in particular. Just seeking to find "true" love after a couple of bad relationships. It was the ONE time I decided to leave an altar unattended with candles lit, albeit just for a moment. When I returned the entire thing had melted, literally everything was melted into the wax. 2 months later I met my fiance. Coincidentally his element is Fire and he can be a bit hot-tempered like that spell seemed to be, but I've never been happier.
Wish you luck with your endeavor.
