Overview

The He’s Just Not That Into You for the iPhone generation—a frank, funny, and refreshingly helpful guide to dating in the age of social media from the creators of the wildly popular blog HeTexted.com.

As Glamour magazine writes, “There are two types of women in the world: 1) Women who’ve gotten a vague or confusing text message from their crush and analyzed how to respond for hours with their girlfriends (“But what does this mean?”); and 2) Liars.” Today, where everyone is plugged into social media 24/7, lines are blurred and a ton of new confusion exists about whether or not a guy is into you. As any woman who’s recently been on a date knows, no one leaves home without his or her phone, and it is literally on the table or in use at some point on every date. So how can women use social media and texting to their advantage and suss out his true feelings? He Texted is here to clear up any mysteries about texting, friending, following, liking, LOLing, and poking that have become commonplace in the smartphone era.

Founders of HeTexted.com Lisa Winning and Carrie Henderson McDermott and their stable of “Brobassadors” go through the most common and confusing romantic cyber situations using actual text exchanges. Offering concrete advice, they’ll explain what’s really going on in each scenario on a practical and emotional level, lay down a verdict about the guy’s intentions, and establish clear-cut rules for any present and future conduct. Hilarious and helpful in equal measure, this is the book that everyone who texts, Tweets, or uses Facebook should own.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
02/03/2014
Winning and McDermott, creators of HeTexted.com—where women evaluate “obtuse male texting”—assist readers in navigating romance in the information age with the help of three “Brobassadors” who provide a male perspective. Among the array of topics covered are how to reveal subtext in a Facebook friend request, surprising phrases you should never text a guy, and musings on the disparity between a texted vs. a verbal “I love you.” “The Ultimate Facebook Wall Decoder” provides interpretations for men and women on everything from their user handle to their photos and the qualities we look for on another’s page. One man counters the erroneous thinking behind the “two biggest excuses girls make for bad male behavior” and exposes the truth about what he does with nude pics. The authors also draw from HeTexted users, such as the woman whose ex-boyfriend invited her over at 3 a.m. “just to talk” as well as many user-submitted screenshots. McDermott lampoons emojis, noting how “you can irony a thing to death until it’s reborn to earnestness.” The authors’ and the Brobassadors’ adherence to normative gender roles and double standards is bothersome, but unfortunately that’s still the way of the world.

Library Journal
04/01/2014
Drawing on real questions and responses from their wildly popular blog HeTexted (hetexted.com), coauthors Winning and Henderson McDermott, with the assistance of a few good men, provide answers to the familiar "what did he mean by that?" The authors provide context and subtext to every sample "conversation" and show if "he's into you" or not. What makes for compelling reading are the comments that show how to distinguish good chemistry from bad, how to judge the length and timing of a text, and what to do about sexting. VERDICT A valuable book for anyone who is currently dating, and a fun, voyeuristic treat for those who aren't.

Meet the Author

Lisa Winning hails from Australia and attended the London School of Economics before landing in New York City to figure out this whole texting game. Having spent years watching her girlfriends scream “he texted!” the morning after a long night out, she realized they needed a bigger outlet. Her friends, like most girls, would sit around for hours while they hashed out exactly what to text back, and when (wait an hour? or right away? is that desperate?). After her own fair share of awkward texts and kill-me-now dates, Lisa figured there had to be more girls going through this. So, she created HeTexted.

Carrie Henderson McDermott is the co-founder and editorial director of HeTexted. Previously, Carrie worked at Glamour magazine, where she wrote about all things beauty. So, when she’s not busy telling you how to respond to the 3am text (read: don’t!), she can point you in the direction of a mean blow-out. Or explain why most guys hate red lipstick on a first date. Carrie spent a bunch of single years in New York City before she met a guy at a bar. On a Tuesday. At karaoke night. Then, he texted. Now, she calls him her husband.

    Single women from every generation have always wondered if the m

    Single women from every generation have always wondered if the man that occupies her thoughts is “The One.” Does she ever cross his mind as often as he crosses hers? In today’s modern world where the majority of communication is done electronically with a slew of various gadgets and devices, dating has become a tricky ledge that women find themselves treading upon very carefully, trying to decipher what Mr. Wonderful’s most recent text, email, Facebook comment, etc., really means. With He Texted, the authors bring the reader some direct analysis and somewhat expert advice and varying points of view from three men, known as The Bros covering a wide range of scenarios to help the single gal determine if he’s a keeper or if she should move on.




    While reading this book, I couldn’t stop thinking that if the women who submitted the texts for analysis spent as much time verbally communicating with the man she is interested in as she does trying to first decipher and comprehend his texts, emails, etc., she would probably find herself in a meaningful relationship in no time. But then what do I know? I’m certainly no expert on relationships or matters of the heart, but I can’t help but think that in order to determine if you are compatible, it’s best to get to know each other speaking out loud to one another. As a society, are we really too busy to do that or are we just lazy and just want to see positive results with little to no effort on our part? 




    I found this book very easy to read and enjoyed that the authors had real men offering real advice about the various topics ranging from “he friended” to “he booty-texted” to “he loves you” and all of the pitfalls and drama in between. You could also get the same advice, feedback and interaction if you just visit the He Texted website. I also enjoyed that even with the various points of view from both the guys and the gals, there was no gender bashing. The guys were not afraid to label another guy a tool or the girl as naïve or gullible, but when they did, they did so with tact and professionalism. Nobody went off on a tangent, jumping on the soapbox to vilify one gender over the other. I felt like the advice and feedback provided was given with sincerity and honesty. The book also provides a good amount of humor, especially with the “text examples” provided in the book. 




    Overall, although common sense and logic should prevail and people should be interacting with their voices instead of their thumbs on a keypad, the digital age we live in is proof that it isn’t happening. More people are finding their mates online year after year and this book provides a good road map for Ms. Single Gal to use to help her understand the signs so she is successful on her journey to Happily Ever After. 




    Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy of He Texted from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
