I recently wrote that I’d decided to reread *He’s Just Not that Into You* because the last time I read this book, it rocked my world. Ripped the bottom right out, changed the way I looked at men forever! It was exhilarating, it was liberating!
“He’s just not that into me . . . and the loser doesn’t have the balls to tell me!”
Simple as that. No more waiting by the phone, no more waiting for some jerk to ask me out, no more making excuses about his “trust issues” or his “busy schedule” or the stupid bitch that broke his heart! I’m sorry if some douchebag had an unhappy childhood, but that’s something you tell Dr. Phil; you don’t use it as an excuse for not calling your goddamn girlfriend!
Ladies, I know it’s hard because he’s “so great” and “so amazing”, but let me tell you something: every guy I was “so hung up on” and “so afraid of losing”? Yeah. Them. I have in fact forgotten about all of them.
Every. Single. One.
Not that I’m exempt from taking shit from guys, but not worrying about how long I am going to have to wait for a dumb as dogshit dude to realize I’m awesome has freed up loads of my time! Hell, I probably wouldn’t have been able to fit in all those failed dates w schizoids and nineteen year olds and wanted criminals had I spent all that time following some creep around bc his stupid British accent had dulled my senses.
(Though I’ll not deny that it’s happened!)
Reading it again was fairly pointless as I *get* it all now. Men are simple, men are pathetic, men are weak- learn it. Know it. No man is *ever* going to come right out and actually SAY to you that you *aren’t* the one and that he’s [gasp!] *not* attracted to you. I don’t believe this has ever once occurred in the history of mankind, but should you ever witness it, please snap a photograph- I’d like to see the pigs flying in the background.
But the signs are there. I’ll take a moment to touch on each of them, tell you what I think and use personal examples where I can! I can examine one chapter each day! This has probably been done before a million times, but it’s going to be fun!
Tune in tomorrow for Brianne’s thoughts on *HE’S JUST NOT THAT INTO YOU IF HE’S NOT ASKING YOU OUT* . . .
(a literary discussion!)
