He’s Just Not That Into You – Greg Behrendt, Liz Tuccillo

With those six words I knew I was in for a different kind of advice book experience.  This book directed at women stresses something that really is common sense, when a guy isn’t interested in you, you aren’t going to be able to magically change that and turn his feelings on.  Amazing this book actually tells us something women shouldn’t be surprised to hear.  The guy not calling, not having time for you; the guy who is leaving her as soon as he can but loves you and needs you, probably isn’t that into you.  We all make mistakes, with dating and just otherwise navigating this thing called existence.  Going after the wrong person, is I guess one of those things that can happen to smart people.   This book poses questions from women, often so ridiculous and sad, yet not that unheard of and then presents the arguments women sometimes don’t want to hear or acknowledge.  Behrendt is sure to address that, although not desired by this one guys we are just infatuated with, there will be someone worthy and someone who wants us just as much as we want them.   Little homework exercises are presented at the end of the chapters, as well as a counterpoint to the argument Behrendt makes, but in the end it comes back to the sense it actually all makes that he’s not into you, once you really take some time to think about it.  This isn’t a typical advice or self-help book, because it does have a decidedly comedic and snarky feel, that when a women is feeling down and out from dating torment, can actually provide a bit of fresh air and a laugh when needed most.  Absurd as it is, the common sense approach really is uncommon sometimes.
