And there are no mixed messages.
The truth may be, He's just not that into you.
He's Just Not That Into You — based on a popular episode of Sex and the City — educates otherwise smart women on how to tell when a guy just doesn't like them enough, so they can stop wasting time making excuses for a dead-end relationship. This book knows you're a beautiful, smart, funny woman who deserves better

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Adult/High School-With a bright, breezy style, the authors highlight a list of actions that men take to demonstrate that they are "just not into you," using "Dear Greg" letters and replies, unscientific polls of men, lists reviewing the key points in each chapter, a comic glossary, and laugh-out-loud workbook assignments. Although this book is meant for the 20-plus career women who have been dating for a while, the empowering message that a woman deserves a man who truly loves her and not one that she must constantly make excuses for can't be learned too early.-Jane S.

    Entertaining Read - But Not As Revealing As You May Think...

    Made me laugh starting with the first chapter - "He's just not that into you if he's not asking you out." Sometimes simplest answer is quite frequently the right answer. It took the title of the first chapter to make me realize that!

    My New Bible

    I truly believe this book changes many women's lives. After reading it I noticed that the author, Greg's voice was constantly in my head aiding me in making better decisions concerning men. Greg and Liz are both fantastically blunt and consistently tell women what they need to hear to get into more healthy relationships. It's fabulous and an easy read!

    Ended a serious relationship with Mr. Wrong

    I bought this book in March this year after I ended an 8 week whirlwind relationship with a man who was drunk every time we were together. He said he loved me and wanted to go to Vegas to get married after 8 weeks of craziness. I woke up after saying 'I love too', and by the way 'do you know my last name'?. He had no answer. ADIOS! It sounds ridiculous and funny but I still cannot laugh about it. I wanted all of his words and empty promises to be true. The book made me blush and made me cry. What a fool I was but now the book has shown me how to recognize a guy that is just not that into me right away. I feel sorry for women who spend years with the wrong man. I can't imagine their pain. I have learned that reliability and accountability can be real turn-ons even for a girl who likes excitement. Excitement and heart ache are not synonyms! I have shared the book with friends. It is wonderful.

    While I definitely agree that this book holds some talking point

    While I definitely agree that this book holds some talking points, I have overall decided that it is not a "live your way of dating life in this way" book. Why? After discussing with several men of high caliber whom I respect because they treat women (and the general public) with more dignity than the men being described in this book, two things came very clearly to my attention. One, the author used to write for Sex in the City, which I find an extremely demoralizing and generalizing show -- demoralizing toward women and of dating as a whole. It's all about how often you can "get it in" and being an independent woman (read: b*tch) yet secretly have a yearning for love that often finds itself in all the wrong places. On this note-- it's hard for me to completely vouch for an author that insists we must submit all authority and control in dating relationships to men. I think it's garbage, and as a very honest/up-front woman in dating relationships found most of what Greg said to be offensive. Why should women have to wait around for men to be interested? So many men I talk to admit that while they do find women attractive unprompted, often women have to initiate some kind of flirtatiousness or availability for the men to consider the female to be anything more than an acquaintance or friend if they aren't just in it for the sex. Sorting these reviews by most helpful, you will see that the most helpful review written in 2005 notes intimidated and shy men are less likely to ask a woman out despite their attraction toward her or their interest in her. I find it fascinating that Greg basically ignores all of these qualities in men (also I feel invalidating them in a way-- you aren't a real man if you can't get past your issues and pursue a woman you're interested in because IF YOU LIKED HER ENOUGH YOU WOULD?? Unrealistic.).

    All this is to say, while I agree that the book makes you think hard about the kind of men you're interested in and for you to read their actions as a sign of where things are headed (rather than what their words say, sometimes), it is for the most part very sexist and relies too much on old-fashioned ways of courting and dating in relationships that aren't applicable to today's dating world. Ladies-- we may need to initiate a little if we want a man to follow us. And that doesn't mean you're being too pushy or becoming the man in the relationships, or looking too needy. Greg doesn't have it all figured out. Let's re-evaluate whether we should be taking so gravely the advice given by a man who made a living off stories of fictitious, shallow, promiscuous women who had to hide their true hearts' desires to make for good television.

    Wake-Up Call for All Women

    The book He¿s Just Not That into You by Greg Behrendt and Liz Tuccillo is an amazing book that can really help women and girls. This book was published by Simon Spotlight Entertainment in New York, NY in 2004. He¿s Just Not That into You is a book that I think could help a lot of girls who are confused about their guys.<BR/> This book is a book of 273 helpful tips and hints for girls and women who have troubles with knowing if their man is cheating, not in love anymore, or just not into them. It has tips like ¿no answer is your answer,¿ ¿don¿t be with someone who doesn¿t do what they say they¿re going to do,¿ and my favorite is ¿ if a (sane) guy really likes you, there ain¿t nothing that¿s going to get in his way. And if he¿s not sane, why would you want him?¿ It is a book that I like and helped me through a rough time with a guy who I wasn¿t sure on. I think almost every girl or women should read this book. And the neat thing is how both authors were part of the famous TV show Sex in the City. <BR/> He¿s Just Not That into You is a book for women of all ages to learn from and help them. It is a wonderful book full of lots of helpful advice for women who might be ¿blinded¿ by love.

    FABULOUS

    Sometimes we find ourselves commited in long relationships that will never go anywhere. I know I did. These men will have you on lay a way, only doing just enough to keep you holding on. This book made me realize that I have one life to live, my time is precious, and I will not continue wasting my time with someone who is not for me. Ladies, sometimes the truth of the matter is, he's just not that into you. This book gives you better insight on making smarter choices about men. I plan on passing this book down to my daughter and she will pass it on to her daughter and so on and so on...

    Good Entertainment

    Men are not into women for many reasons. The number one reason is because he isn't attracted to her! This should be obvious and is dealt with. However, many women have the need for relationship so desperately that they pursue the man until he is overwhelmed with someone he has no interest in marrying. I highly recommend 'Why Singles are not Married & the Married are Single' to understand many facets of any type of relationship from a man's candid view. It deals with pursuit, sex, money, cohabitation, family, God, how we have walked into detructive relationships, abortion, pornography and so many other influential obstacles for pure love and commitment.

    EYE OPENING!

    At first, I was disappointed in myself b/c I accidentally ordered the abridged version of the book, but decided to give it a chance. Once I got reading, I couldn't put it down!! Although I wasn't in a relationship at that time, I got SO MUCH out of the book (especially #s 182-199) b/c I was trying to figure out why I wasn't in a relationship with a guy that I had liked so much and thought liked me. Although a lot of what Behrendt & Tuccillo write is common sense, it really made me realize that this guy doesn't want anything to do with me and to accept that I'll never get closure from him as to why. I recommended this book to all unmarried women out there! I can¿t wait to read the unabridged version now!

    A Disappointment

    This title gets two stars because it was so cleverly marketed by the publisher. Its content is sour and bitter, nothing but a means to get women to look negatively at their relationships. Surely, there are women who will benefit by this book, but there are many more who will lose healthy relationships. If you love someone so little that you think you need this book, why not just save the money and end the relationship instead? Sure, sometimes men are jerks, but more often we simply need to learn to communicate better with them.

    Where was this book four years ago

    Of all the great books that have really hit home about relationships and being honest with yourself, this is the first book I've felt strongly enough to write a review about. I came across it within two weeks of the end of a relationship that had been fading for four years I'm slow to realize that you can't save someone from himself. I've made a list of about 30 entries that are especially meaningful for my situation so that I can refer to them routinely to get me through this time.

    Love on the Rocks.

    This book is great. It really does make you see the more harsh side of reality that you really don't want to see. After reading it, you can't help but smile but there are many pages that just break your heart thinking about your own situations. But as you realize the truth, you can move on and not be in denial.

    Powerful

    My boyfriend broke up with me about four months ago and I keep on thinking he still liked me. I would call or email once and a while or he would and I would respond. About a month ago he got a girlfriend and would email me about how wonderful she is even if I didn't ask. I got this book because I needed help to stop talking to him and it helped I read it every other day and if I felt like calling him and it helped I haven't talked to him since.

    This book helped me understand some of my past relationships, it even helped me understand that sometimes I'm just not into him either. I recommend it to all my girlfriends that are in dead end relationships.
