no means yes and yes means no

this whole he's just not that into you movie thing has got me thinking.

why is it always about the guy not being into the girl. that's a little sexist right? so i decided that to be fair i want to talk about when
SHE'S just not that into you.

you being the douchebag in the puka shell necklace. yeah, you.

top ten ways to tell if SHE'S just not that into you. listen up boys.

1. she won't return your call. or if she does return your call it's in the form of a text message telling you how busy she's been.

2. she tries to hook you up with every single one of her single friends but herself.

3. she sleeps with one of your best friends.

4. she won't introduce you to her friends and family. pssst, she's hiding you!

5. she won't make eye contact with you, instead she is scanning the bar. and that wink? it's just something in her eye.

6. she only calls/texts you when its 2am after the bar. she's doing that because she didn't meet anyone better that night.

7. she only talks to you online. emails/gchats/facebook are a great form of communication and a great way to get to know a person but eventually the correspondence needs to be face to face. if she doesn't want to meet up with you, you're screwed.

8. if she runs away LIKE THIS every time she see you. (seriously click on the link, it's hilarious and worth it)

9. she tells you she's on her period as an excuse not to sleep with you four weekends in a row. boom, roasted.

10. she has a restraining order out on you and you can't step within 100 feet of her - very bad sign.

now considering that i personally have done #2 and #3 to boys that i have very much been interested in proves one thing.

women are confusing as fuck.

what did i miss? what do you do when you simply aren't into the person?

  1. When you go through all of the trouble of finding Winnie The Pooh and Tigger costumes and she says she's "Just not into that kind of stuff."

    I KNEW I should have gone with Eeyore.

  2. Ooh, I've done #5 and #6 so many times!

    I'm also big on not actually speaking to someone I'm not entirely interested in - so if I can text I will :-)

  3. I think you nailed that list. wait you know I mean. I would say I have done most of the things on the list. And people wonder why dating is so hard.

    ReplyDelete
  4. Great list! I dislike talking to people that I'm not interested in either. I've done the ignoring phone calls and emails, texting to say I've been really busy....

  5. I tell them I'm not into them. Women always say they like this blunt approach, no games and all that - but let me tell you - they don't.

  6. I think I've done everything on that list... but you have to add:

    11. She endlessly talks about other guys being hot or guys she's hooked up with/wants to

  7. Ah - I love this post! I saw the movie and couldn't help but appreciate the irony of a movie that just feeds to the same problems that the book is trying to counteract...

    :)

  8. I thought the restraining order just means you are supposed to try harder.

    ReplyDelete
  9. I'll be on the lookout now.

    Great post!

    ReplyDelete
  10. Oh yeah, I've done all of these (plus Lilu's) except 10. At least, not yet anyway...

    Also, there's a book called "Be Honest, You're Not That Into Him Either." Yeah, I own it.

  11. that video is awesome.

    how about.....she turns you down on hanging out, seeing a movie, getting a drink at the bar, etc, and you still try to ask her out again.

    ReplyDelete
  12. You've pretty much hit the nail on the head with this one.

    And that video? Yeah, those are the newspeople I watch whenever I go home. SO weird!

  13. Thank you for posting this! Seriously!!!

    I hate that fucking book so damn much I want to burn it.

    It should win an award for Stupidest Publication Ever Written Taken Seriously By the Masses.

    Ugh! I'm off my soap box.

  14. Women just aren't that into you when they, oh yeah, when they TELL YOU they're not into you. We're not playing Jedi mind games. We're being serious. Now, walk away!

    ReplyDelete
  15. hahaha, i love this. SO TRUE. the eye contact... the texting back to voicemails a day later... take a hint, gents :-)

    ReplyDelete
  16. You are a champion for doing this. I will NOT see the movie, btw.

    ReplyDelete
  17. There is that one part in the movie with scarlett johansson and E from entourage. That is definitely the example of she is just not that into do. I was kind of surprised they didn't play that up more.

    ReplyDelete
  18. well like my posts lately I have been bloggin about a guy who i was not so into. i think i might just send him this post, because i have done all of this and he still dont get it

    ReplyDelete
  19. I've worn a fake engagement ring before to clue the guy into the fact that I'm not available- to him!

    ReplyDelete
  20. A friend of mine has tried most of the things you listed (short of a restraining order) and none of has seemed to work. She's even told the guy not to contact her and hung up on him several times.

    Creep much?

    ReplyDelete
  21. lol @ the passionate book worm, i have done the fake engagement ring thing too!

    sadly it didn't work!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I knew I would love this post from the first sentence.
    I definitely love the #11 that Lilu added. I've only done all of them except 10. All of them! And they don't get it!!

    Fantastic.

  23. "you being the douchebag in the puka shell necklace. yeah, you."

    YES. You are awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Hahaha OK, first of all... that video is amazing.

    I have done all of these too. I think the worst is when you are with a guy in person and he can't read the signs that you just want to get the HELL away from him. I've gone so far as to even be deep-sighing and looking away and CLEARLY not listening and the guy just goes on and on and onnnnnnnnnnn.

    Great list, though.

    ReplyDelete
  25. you know there's a book called, "she's just not that into you, either."

    it's kind of lame, actually.

    your list is best.

    ReplyDelete
  26. 12. When she talks with you and then waves over her boyfriend to introduce you to him.

    ReplyDelete
  27. TOO TRUE.I do these pretty much a lot LOL

    ReplyDelete
  28. there is a book that I bought after reading the original called "face it your just not that into him either"

    Good one!

    I'm a chicken and I use avoidance when i dont like someone, or dont want to reject anyone. I leave the bar, or dont return calls. If its work, I just never go back.

    ReplyDelete
  29. ahahaha this is great. you need to add to the list, if you're wearing a puka shell necklace she WILL NOT be into you.

    love it.

    ReplyDelete
  30. i have SOOO done #2 and #3 as well (and to guys who i was interested in.) lol so we're definitely on the same page.

    oh and i've pulled the fake engagement ring thing but i thought that was a given. what girl hasn't done that at some point to ward off an unwanted suitor? ha

    ReplyDelete
  31. I totally agree about number 11 (LiLu's).

    Guys can do that too.

    How bout she tells you she really hates kissing/hooking/having sex... ever.

    That could be a surefire sign that she just doesn't want to kiss/hook up with/have sex with YOU.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I dont respond to any messages or voice mails. I just stop wrtiing back until they get the point =)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Been reading for awhile but never commented. I am so guilty of #1 on that list!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Um, no dudes want to be introduced to a girl's friends or family. We only care about one thing..

    Straight boning.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Great list and so true!

    Plus I literally nearly just peed myself at that bush clip.

    Seriously. I'm heading to the toilet right now!!!

    Gotta go...

    ReplyDelete
  36. Hah! I'm guilty of #2 (there's no real non-poo way to say that, is there)

    I will also say "I really have to go, my mom is calling me!" or someone else, like an ailing friend.

    There's one guy that hounds me to let him visit me in Cleveland, and so I can usually get away with lame-ass excuses...But the whole "I HAVE A F-ING BOYFRIEND" thing doesn't seem to work.

    WTFBBQ

  37. I had high hopes for this post and it has met my expectations, this is great.

    And I am sure I that video will be the icing on the cake as soon as my slow internet connection lets me watch it.

  38. This entire industry of "how dating works" is ridiculous, really. Although if you're looking to profit, capitalizing off the social awkwardness of others is a good plan.

  39. major ditto to lilu and maxie.

    i thought the movie was sort of blah. and the entire audience (except for me, of course) consisted of couples. gross.

    ReplyDelete
  40. "she won't introduce you to her friends and family. pssst, she's hiding you!"

    I like being the dirty little secret.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Agreed. I can be just not as into a guy as he isn't in to me. I love the list.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I tend to respond, "Aww, how sweet" to everything they say regardless of what it is, no matter how inappropriate hoping that they will get the hint.

    It never effing works.

    ReplyDelete
  43. There can't be a "She's Just Not That Into You" book or movie because unlike men, women can't be pigeon-holed. There would be waaaaay more exceptions than rules.
