Answer:Medusa is Poseidon's girlfriend. When Poseidon and Medusa met together at Athena, the god of Wisdom's temple, Athena turned Medusa into a monster with hair as snake. She was very vulnerable since anyone who looks at her eyes, they turn into stone. After Medusa's head was chopped off, if you look at her eyes, this time, you become petrified. Other Answer:Medusa was a beautiful priestess at the temple of Athena. To be a priest or priestess of Athena you had to vow to be a virgin and be chaste. Medusa vowed but she wished she would be as beautiful as the goddess of love and beauty Aphrodite and to have a lover. One day the god of the sea Poseidon saw Medusa at the temple. Medusa seduced him and they became lovers in Athena's temple. Athena was enraged at Medusa and contacted her. Medusa made sacrifices and begged for mercy from Athena. Athena turned Medusa's long flowing hair to snakes and made her so beautiful that whenever anyone looked at her they would turn to stone. Medusa was banished to the Isle of The Gorgons and was later beheaded by Perseus, the prince of Argos.

She turned Medusa into a monster as a punishment for sneaking out with the sea god Poseidon in Athena's temple, thereby desecrating it.

Medusa didn't actually hate people, she hated men. She was raped by Poseidon, god of sea, that was seen by Athena.

Poseidon wanted to have carnal relations with Medusa but Medusa was a priestess in the temple of Athena, a maiden god. As such, all of her priestess were also expected to be maidens.

Medusa said she was so beautiful, even more beautiful than Athena and so Athena turned Medusa into a monster so that whenever the Medusa was looked at she would automatically turn them into stone, even herself, but then the Medusa was cheated on so this made the Medusa even more powerful and more angry towards her husband/Greek god. Then the Medusa was killed by Perseus who is a demigod Greek hero who killed Medusa.)

Medusa was actually a very pretty woman at first. She was a priestess of Athena, all of whom had to take a vow never to love, get married or have children. one day Poseidon came to the temple to see Medusa and ended up raping her. Athena was angered, but not at Poseidon. as a fellow god, in her eyes, he could do no wrong. she was angry at Medusa. in a moment of rage, Athena cursed Medusa to be not only ugly, but so ugly that anyone who should gaze upon her eyes would be turned to stone. and then Athena banished her to live out the rest of her life at the edge of the River that is the entireness to the underworld.

No- she did date the god of the sea before she got turned into a monster though.
