GoodReads Summary: 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.
Rating: 4 of 5 stars
A friend lent me this book, after we saw the movie, together.
Initially, I didn't expect to get much out of it. I mean, I'm recently divorced after 10+ years of marriage, and I'm not looking to get into another relationship, just yet. So, the lessons inside wouldn't really apply. How mistaken was I.
The examples posed and the answers given shed an awful lot on my marriage. No wonder I felt unloved! He just wasn't that into me!
It's freeing in a way. There was never anything I could've done to change things.
