Getting Tough Love with Miss Junior BSU
By Britney Pollard
It was truly a battle of the sexes when Corinthia Jones, Miss Junior BSU, hosted a "Tough Love" event in the Wiseman on Nov 21. Attendants were given a blank piece of paper upon entry, asked to write an anonymous question about love, sex, and/or relationships.
With the diverse crowd of Bulldogs, the night's conversations were going to be fascinating. Jones collected the sheets, shuffled them in a box, and handed each person a question to ask. Then, it was a free for all.
"Does a woman know if she'll sleep with a man on the first date?"
"What's better - an intellect or any animal?"
"What's more important in a relationship - love or money?"
Most of the questions asked touched on communication between men and women, especially when it comes to establishing relationship rules and boundaries - more commonly identified as the "talking" phase.
"It really depends on the person" was a phrase commonly voiced in each student's response. Those in the audience shared brief, personal situations to shed light on the issues and posed potential solutions. Toward the end of the night, the women really took charge of the dialogue with solid opinions.
The hour-long event ended with Jones thanking everyone for attending along with updating the audience on a few of the events she has planned for the future. If her other events are apparent crowd-pleasers as "Tough Love" then every student should be encouraged to attend.
