Instead she does the whole decorative-woman thing, accepting whatever may come her way, including whatever hero happened to get there first. If I were Perseus, I'd be less than flattered by the idea of first-come-first-serve, I mean, she might have been just as happy with Herakles, Achilles or even Jason. All very worrying, from his perspective.
LOL I love this take on Andromeda! She's difficult for a modern woman to like because of her passivity, but I suppose she does give us a warts-and-all archetypal model for the Queen of Cups. Accepting, all-forgiving and open, but also indiscriminate and passive.
