Case No.12: He's Just Not That Into You

My phone got busy for the past few weeks... yep weeks, a friend is whining and all about her lovelife... and while I always am willing to listen anytime of the day... I just got a little burnt out. (paulit-ulit-ulit-ulit). And to make things easier for her to understand, I recommended this book... He's Not Just That Into You. and yep, my phone is now on its normal beep rate.

sharing a few chapters of the book:
He's just not that into you if:
*He's Not asking you out
*He's Not calling you
*He's Not dating you
*He's not having sex with you
*He's having sex with someone else
*He Doesn't want to marry you
*He's breaking up with you
*He's disappeared on you
*He's married (or any other insane variation of being unavailable)
*He's a selfish jerk, a bully, or a really big freak

The book was inspired by an episode of Sex and the City titled "Pick-A-Little, Talk-A-Little," in which Miranda asks Carrie's boyfriend, Jack Berger, to analyze the post-date behavior of a potential love interest. Because the man declined Miranda's invitation to come up to her apartment after the date, stating that he has an early meeting, Berger concludes, "He's just not that into you," adding, "When a guy's really into you, he's coming upstairs, meeting or no meeting."
Behrendt's response? He agrees that being lonely sucks, but he firmly feels that being in a bad relationship is worse. He wants women to believe that they are better than what they have been settling for. He wants them to get out of bad relationships so that they will be free when a great one comes along.
