The Single Woman’s Dash of Sass: Is He REALLY ‘Just Not That Into You’?
Quote of the Day:
“I’m about to make a wild, extreme and severe relationship rule: the word busy is a load of crap. The word “busy” is the relationship Weapon of Mass Destruction. It seems like a good excuse, but in fact in every silo you uncover, all you’re going to find is a man who didn’t care enough to call. Remember men are never to busy to get what they want.” ~Greg Behrendt
The Single Woman Says:
It might sound harsh, but my man Greg Behrendt broke it down like NO OTHER in the book “He’s Just Not That Into You.” Yet, as women, we want to believe every excuse in the world OTHER than the fact that he just might not be that into us. He’s busy. He’s scared. He’s not ready for a relationship. He’s “finding himself.” Ladies…C’MON! I’m gonna go out on a limb and say there’s never, in the history of the world, been a man too busy “finding himself” to hone in on the beautiful woman standing right in front of him…if he was into her. The truth is – people, and men in particular, DREAD confrontation. They avoid it like the plague. (Obviously, there are a FEW men on earth who handle confrontation just fine…mostly lawyers and Navy SEALS…LOL! But this is a standard generalization for the purposes of this Dash of Sass.) They will hand you any excuse in the world to get out of handing you the truth – that they’re just not that into you. So it’s up to us, as women, the intuitive creatures that we are, to read between the lines of their BS and figure out that if he’s not calling, he’s not pursuing, he’s not initiating contact, he’s not texting, Facebooking, tweeting, or IM’ing, he’s not asking us out…then…Dum Da Dum Dum…he’s just not that into us. Then STOP wasting our valuable time trying to convince this person that’s probably not worthy of us anyway WHY they should be into us. Think about it: If you have to CONVINCE a man why he should be with you, do you really wanna be with HIM? You are FAR too fabulous to beg, crawl, manipulate, or convince. It’s time to write yourself a big ole reality check and keep the CHANGE…then let go of that dead end relationship and hit the highway to Loving Yourself Too Much to Wait Around For Someone Who Doesn’t Love You Enough. There is someone out there who will be SO excited and thrilled and honored to call you his girl, he would NEVER string you along …but you’ll never meet him as long as you’re clinging to Mr. Wrong.
