Into You

I skimmed He’s Just Not That Into You in the bookstore. It’s aimed at straight women who want to build committed, mutually-supportive romantic relationships.

As a 43-year-old single man, I thought it’d be interesting to see what it was about. (Note: I just skimmed the book, so it’s possible I missed the most important points…)

In summary, the book says that each woman deserves a healthy romantic relationship that meets her needs, but that this does not mean that the man she is currently dating will meet those needs. If not, she should move on and find someone better suited – there are plenty of eligible single men in the world. Here are the tell-tale signs:

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 Only Wants To See You When He’s Drunk
* He Doesn’t Want To Marry You
* He’s Breaking Up With You
* He’s Disappeared On You
* He’s Married (And Other Insane Variations Of Being Unavailable)
* He’s A Selfish Jerk, A Bully, Or A Really Big Freak

If a woman is seeking a casual dating experience (or maybe an FWB “relationship”, or ???) then the above signs might not be applicable.

To me, the items listed above seem about right. (Then again, HTH would I know?)

For men, Google gives lots of links to help determine if She’s Just Not That Into You. I doubt there will ever be a book on this topic, though, since it only takes two dates for most guys to figure it out.
