And that’s without the social pressure demanding that you partner up.Speaking of that pressure, women have been told that we are expected to attract a mate since the beginning of time.We tried to direct conversation away from politics, but all we could really focus on were the little red or blue states that kept popping up.We finally gave up when a major swing state went republican at 1 a.m., parting ways with a very happy me and a clearly irked boyfriend. Leading up to the elections, we had civil debates about tax reforms, abortion policies, medical marijuana, standardized testing, welfare...

There are a million articles that teach women how to be the ultimate partner for a man.Books like Does throwing yourself into the cult of self improvement to attract a mate seem time consuming and sort of laughable?

Or, as Bojack Horseman joked, the Jews are to blame for WWII because they “peeved off Hitler so bad.” I am also fairly certain that women who did not want to date conservative men are not responsible for Trump, because I doubt they voted for him.
This seems to be lost on the party of personal responsibility.
