Book Review: He's Just Not That Into You - Greg Behrendt and Liz Tuccillo

Synopsis - For ages women have come together over coffee and cocktails to analyse the puzzling behaviour of men.  The authors are here to say - despite good intentions -  you're wasting your time.  Men are not complicated, although they'd like you to think they are.  And there are no mixed messages.

The truth may be he's just not that into you.  He's not that into you if he's
- Not asking you out
- Too busy to pick up the phone
- Doesn't like the words 'relationship' or 'boyfriend'.

Review - You may remember there was a film with the same title starring Jennifer Aniston, Ben Affleck, Jennifer Connelly and Bradley Cooper amongst other romantic leads.  This book endeavours to tell women not to waste their time waiting around or hanging on to men who are simply 'just not into them'.  As mentioned in the book by co-author Liz Tucillo, Greg's viewpoint is very black and white but valid.  If you have spent three years with a guy and he can't be bothered to phone when he says, isn't bothered about having sex with you then Greg has a point.  However, unlike Greg I don't always think there is someone special out there waiting just for you!  Relationships take work but there has to be love, respect and friendship. A good read with some sound advice if you are on the dating scene.  3*
