Overview

You get that he’s just not that into you, but why?

What really happened when that cute guy never called you back after your date? Why didn’t that intriguing man you flirted with online or at the party ask you out? It’s an annoying mystery. One minute there was a potential romance happening, and the next? He vanished, inexplicably. If you knew why men reacted in these ways, you could do something about it next time when the right guy comes along.

So Rachel Greenwald did what you’re too embarrassed to do yourself. As a renowned dating coach with a Harvard MBA, she applied business savvy to the dating world by conducting in-depth "Exit Interviews" with 1,000 single men, asking them why they hadn’t called back after a date or online flirtation. By refusing to accept glib responses such as "There was just no chemistry," she extracted unabashedly honest and raw answers. It turns out that men leave women hanging for clear, consistent reasons. The Top Ten Date-Breakers–revealed here in Greenwald’s unique research–are the result of signals that women of all ages send unknowingly, but are easily fixed. Citing true anecdotes and case studies, this book examines the most frequent date-breakers that men confessed, and offers practical advice on how you can avoid them.

Greenwald’s goal isn’t for you to pretend to be someone you’re not, but rather to keep the ball in your court. By using her research results as a guide to tweak your comments and gestures, you’ll have more men asking to see you again. Then you can accept or decline their invitations: you’re doing the selecting–not them.

In today’s increasingly complex dating world, both online and offline, learning how to maximize your dates is essential. With a fresh and entertaining behind-the-scenes vantage point, Why He Didn’t Call You Back offers simple solutions that empower women to choose the men they really want to date.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In this dating guide for women getting nowhere fast, professional matchmaker Greenwald takes the intriguing step of interviewing a thousand men who decided not to follow up on a first date. Unfortunately, that stab at quasi-scientific methodology doesn't turn up anything new-though you wouldn't suspect it to see the volume of Greenwald's text. To her credit, she doesn't advise readers to change who they are, but how they present themselves, emphasizing the importance of first impressions and refusing to heap blame on either men or women. Detailed descriptions and checklists will help readers determine what disagreeable stereotype you may projecting ("The Boss Lady," "The Bait & Switcher," "The Park Avenue Princess") and how to remedy it. Despite a direct voice and infectious confidence, Greenwald echoes much that's already been covered in countless other volumes-don't seem desperate, show genuine interest, don't bring up your ex-and often with more detail, examples, lists and subcategories than are necessary. Those who like their self-helps busy, or who are new to the genre, may find this book worthwhile, but in most ways it's the same story, different date.

    The answers a girl needs.

    I guess we've all been there. He seemed to really like us, then nothing. This book gets a girl through this disparing time and on with the rest of her life.

    EXCELLENT

    A really smart book. I was skeptical when I saw she went to Harvard (my ex-boyfriend went to Harvard and he's a total jerk) but I highly recommend this to women, no matter what age you are.
    I just got divorced and needed to hear this stuff. It showed me that I don't know too much about what men are actually thinking anymore. I had no idea you're not supposed to send a thank you after a date-- I thought I was just being polite, but what those guys said does makes sense. And check out the chapter from women about annoying men, very funny!

    Great Book!

    Very revealing into a guy's mind. It was fun hearing all their stories, all the issues with women. I just couldn't stop turning pages and wondering why I didn't know most of this before.

    I have definitely made the Never Ever mistake a few times. It kept bringing back a bunch of my unsuccessful dates and based on this, I know it wasn't personal about me, but I see how I gave some guys the wrong idea about me. Some of the later dating disconnect reasons were a bit obvious but I totally recognized myself in some of the first ones. I can't wait to go on my next date because I know I'll be getting that call back...of course, I'll probably say no but at least I get the option!!
