Heartless Venusians

I find that dating Venusians is bad for my health. I get it that their planet is dry and boring and all that, and that Earth is lots of fun. I get that they live for less than a year and have to make the most out of it.

But, damn it, what I won’t accept is that because they have three hearts that somehow gives them the excuse to date multiple humans at once.

Of course I was broken hearted when I found out. Apparently Venusians don’t think that’s enough of a reason to change their customs. Go figure!

I know it didn’t help my case when I confessed that I had been unfaithful myself as well. But, come on, my affair shouldn’t count. I mean, it happened with a robot and that thing didn’t even have a heart!
