The Venus vs. Mars column titled â€œBest Ways to Piss Off Your Loverâ€ succeeded in pissing off not only your lover, but most of the females on campus, including myself.
The Venus column stated that a girlfriend waiting for her boyfriendâ€™s text is agonizing and can make or break her day. Â
Wait, really? Â If you can play a man card, Iâ€™m playing a woman card. Â Girls, if you are sitting around waiting for some man to text you and that is making or breaking your day, you need to woman up. Â
This is 2011, not the 1800s. Â Women donâ€™t depend on men to define their lives anymore. Â
If your boyfriendâ€™s texts determine your whole day, you need a priority check. Â Woman, up and focus on your job, your school and your relationships with friends, not some meaningless text some man sent you. Â
What happened to all the strong, independent women out there? Apparently, they are not writing or reading the Venus column.
