    Mars?

    what the hell do mars en venus have to do with relationships and dating? am i the only man slightly offended by being compared to the god of war where women are compared with the goddess of love?

    we're not that bad! honest! we're just people, like women! honest!

    That book is useless. I threw it into the garbage after 25 pages. It was around then that the author said how men and women view time differently, and if a guy doesn't call for a month after a great date, don't be mad at him. I figured the rest of the book was complete garbage.

    i suppose im not the only one to have noticed a lot of anti-male sexism... (or at least i hope not...)

    i mean, does the term feminism not already imply favoritism (and thus sexism)?

    I read it yeaaars ago. Came to the conclusion it could have been shortened without really losing anything by simply having one page that says "women can sometimes be bitchy. Men can sometimes be reclusive jerks. Deal with it."

    I've never read the book, but come on, I think the comparison isn't without any merit.

    really? those are fair comparisons? not even if you generalize imo.

    If you go buy any cultural or historical stereotypes, I believe it is fair.

    You are right. There is nothing in common between relationships and planets and Gods. We all are human whit characters and search for our soul mate
