  • In the mythology of various cultures, faeries were actually very sexual and sensual. They represent sexuality in its most raw form. And they are not creatures to be messed with. They can be violent and even deadly when provoked. This is because they are "free spirits" so to speak.
    Of course, if you go by modern culture, they are cute and friendly and no harm will come to you at all.

  • I agree with Cochise...they really mean nothing at all to me, but they are very pretty and feminine.

  • I like them due to they represent the fantasy and imagination. But they're not the only fantasy symbol I like.

  • Oh goodness! I could go on and on about faeries! :D
    I love everything about them!

    some of the main reasons for liking them for most is they are cute/beautiful and the whole fantasy aspect.

  • I think most people see them as innocent and delicate and beautiful. I on the other hand, not so much! I love Fairies, but because of their mischievous personalities and the fact that they are all bitchy like me... Plus, I know they aren't fantasy... If nothing else they are beautiful with attitude!
