He says:

Oh sure, they say they're busy. They say that they didn't have even a moment in their insanely busy day to pick up the phone. It was just that crazy. All lies. With the advent of cell phones and speed dialing, it is almost impossible not to call you. Sometimes I call people from my pants pocket when I don't even mean to. If I were into you, you would be the bright spot in my horribly busy day. Which would be a day that I would never be too busy to call you.

She says:

There is something great about knowing that my only job is to be as happy as I can be about my life, and feel as good as I can about myself, and to lead as full and eventful a life as I can, so that it doesn't ever feel like I'm just waiting around for some guy to ask me out. And most importantly, it's good for us all to remember that we don't need to scheme and plot, or beg anyone to ask us out. We're fantastic.

For ages women have come together over coffee, cocktails, or late-night phone chats to analyze the puzzling behavior of men.

He's afraid to get hurt again.

Maybe he doesn't want to ruin the friendship.

Maybe he's intimidated by me.

He just got out of a relationship.

Greg Behrendt and Liz Tuccillo are here to say that — despite good intentions — you're wasting your time. Men are not complicated, although they'd like you to think they are. And there are no mixed messages.

The truth may be He's just not that into you.

Unfortunately guys are too terrified to ever directly tell a woman, "You're not the one." But their actions absolutely show how they feel.

He's Just Not That Into You — based on a popular episode of Sex and the City — educates otherwise smart women on how to tell when a guy just doesn't like them enough, so they can stop wasting time making excuses for a dead-end relationship.

Reexamining familiar scenarios and classic mindsets that keep us in unsatisfying relationships, Behrendt and Tuccillo's wise and wry understanding of the sexes spares women hours of waiting by the phone, obsessing over the details with sympathetic girlfriends, and hoping his mixed messages really mean "I'm in love with you and want to be with you."

He's Just Not That Into You is provocative, hilarious, and, above all, intoxicatingly liberating. It deserves a place on every woman's night table. It knows you're a beautiful, smart, funny woman who deserves better. The next time you feel the need to start "figuring him out," consider the glorious thought that maybe He's just not that into you. And then set yourself loose to go find the one who is.

Review:

"It's a classic single-woman scenario: you really like this guy, but he's giving mixed messages. You make excuses, decide he's confused, afraid of commitment. Behrendt, a former executive story editor for Sex and the City-and a formerly single (now happily married) guy who knows all the excuses-provides a simple answer: he's just not that into you. Stop kidding yourself, let go and look for someone else who will be. After all, as Behrendt sensibly puts it, 'if a (sane) guy really likes you, there ain't nothing that's going to get in his way.' If you're not convinced yet, by all means read this smart, funny and surprisingly upbeat little book, full of q's and a's covering every excuse woman has ever made to avoid admitting to herself that a man just wasn't that smitten with her."

Synopsis:

Based on a popular episode of Sex and the City, this enlightening guide teaches otherwise smart women how to tell when a guy just doesn't like them enough.

Synopsis:

The “Modern Day Matchmaker” presents a refreshingly optimistic and plainspoken dating guide to finding romance—both on- and off-line.

Finding and keeping a mate has never been harder. New rules are needed to navigate the complicated and changing modern-love landscape. If someone wants to find “the one,” what are the guidelines he or she needs to know, now that online dating and Google-searching a prospective love interest are the norm?

Happily married for ten years, Paul Carrick Brunson is a husband, a father, and a rising star in the matchmaking world. In It’s Complicated (But It Doesn’t Have to Be), Brunson tackles relevant questions such as:

  • Is marriage right for my personality type?
  • Do the rules of chivalry still apply?
  • How can I date more than one person without hurt feelings?
  • What is the best mode of communication (text messages, phone, e-mail, etc.) for asking someone out?

With an appealing mix of humor, candor, and real-world examples, It’s Complicated (But It Doesn’t Have to Be)  is a breath of fresh air in the dating guide category, offering a message of eternal optimism from a man who believes in true love—and practices what he preaches.

Sure, none of us women want to hear the words "He's just not that into you", but sometimes we just have to face the facts. I, myself, confess right now that i've had to realize that the man I was trying to have something with recently was "Just NOT that into me". First I want to start off saying "DONT WASTE THE PRETTY". This quote from the book "He's just not that into you" has really made me see the light. I believe it was a Monday night that my best friend Megan and I stumbled upon the book in Barnes and Noble. I just flipped open to a page only to discover the quote "DONT WASTE THE PRETTY". Stop and think about this for a minute. Are you wasting all that pretty on some loser that wont give you the time of day? Because I was! And yes ladies it is possible to waste the pretty. Sure most everyone enjoys a nice chase but when does the chase become too much? I considered sharing this blog because I decided I was not wasting the pretty anymore. And guess what girls? YOU DESERVE A PHONE CALL!! Yes, I said it and so did the book, and you do deserve a man that takes the time to call you no matter how "Busy" he is. I made the excuse for months saying "Yall he is just soooo busy he dont have time to call".. HAHAHAHA is all I have to say to myself on that one. It got to a point where I would call this man several times a day just to have him ignore my call and I could hear his voice on the voicemail. WHAT WAS I THINKING? He would go days without calling and then say "ITS NOT HOLLY'S WORLD, IM BUSY WORKING"!! What a butt hole.. and I have not called someone a butt hole since 1st grade, but this guy was the biggest one ever! Another point that "He's just not that into you" made to me was .."HANGING OUT IS NOT DATING, IF HE'S NOT DATING YOU THEN HE'S JUST NOT THAT INTO YOU"!! Bingo!! Why didnt I wake up and smell the "he's just not that into me" pot of coffee he fixed for me. I have to admit I was very naive in this situation. He would give me a call around 1am to "HANG OUT". He wouldnt even be seen with me in public! I know your probably saying "What the crap are you thinking Holly"?..but I had it bad for this guy. I have never made so many excuses before in my life. I know some of you ladies are not going to admit that your in this situation and I'm NO Dr. Phil, I just want to share to all of you my story. How could I have been so blind you ask? Well it wasnt Love thats for sure. In the book it says.. "No matter how powerful and real your feelings may be for someone, if that person cannot fully and honestly return them and therfore actively love you back, these feelings mean nothing". WOW! Deep huh? But it's true. And sometimes you just have to understand that. So therefore, my situation was not love.. simply pure infatuation! I only mentioned a few things ive been through the past couple of months but believe me I could write my own book on my story. So all if you out there who take the time and read this, I really hope it helps you in whatever your situation might be. And go get the book yall. It's worth it.

"He's just not that into you".

Holly

Ladies, they tell it like it is. If he isn't calling and making excuses, he just not that into you. I don't care what his good points are, if he's just not into you, they don't matter. If it's the sex, get a vibrator, in the end, it is less heartache. I would rather be single, which I am, and happy, then with someone and feel like crap....so, if he isn't moving the earth to be with you and isn't attentive to you and your needs, move on. If your happy in a situation where he just isn't that into you, then don't whine about it...regardless, I think every woman out there needs to give this book a read. I would definately give this book as a gift.
