fie, dont like that movie, dont like the book, dont like the tv series, dont like the concept.

it's all just a way to make inroads into a woman's already battered self-esteem.

why not "she's not that into you" for men as well? things often go both ways.

that's why i find the three strikes rule most useful, whatever your gender. if the other party doesn't respond with a counter offer before one makes three offers, it's all right to move on.

sometimes, a good whack of reality in the face is all it takes.

I had an epiphany like that back iin '05. It was life changing.

I never read that book, seen that movie. Not impressed me much, but it's good-to-know movie, and romantic comedy with ben affleck.

and the movie talks about the "Exception" factor, which i think might happens pretty oftens.

and, there's a "she's not into you" story part as well.
so, i think the book concept goes both way :)
it's just the writer is a guy, wat do you expect? =p

and!! from marketing perspective.. it's "he's not into you" instead of "she's not into you", cause apparently gals care/bother more...
means, it will sell better.............

gosh, i am real good in lookin things from others perspective. * LOL *

which is why 'girls' are groomed/conditioned to care more...

where do most of us get our concepts and ideas about romantic relationships?

yep. hollywood.

lather rinse repeat, watch the money goes round and round :D

[speaking from the personal database, i'd say the ratio of the occurrences of 'he's not into you' events to 'she's not into you' events are roughly 50:50. whereas the movies would have us believe its like 90:10. the men who do care, they tend to attract women who don't care. vice versa.]
