A couple of weeks ago I re-watched a movie called "He's Just Not That Into You" and it was good, like really. It brought back so many memories of first dates. All of the confusion, unreturned texts, broken hearts, misread signals, and the embarrassments.
Surprisingly, this movie was based on the self-help book of the same name by Greg Behrendt and Liz Tuccillo. I was curious about this book and had no idea if the book isn't like a novel. It was literally like a dating handbook, but I read it anyway and pretty fun tho!
Here are some badass quotes from the book that really 'ngena abis!':
“A man who wants to make a relationship work will move mountains to keep the
woman he loves”
― Greg Behrendt
“Let’s start with this statistic: You are delicious. Be brave, my sweet. I know you can get lonely. I know you can crave companionship and sex and love so badly that it physically hurts. But I truly believe that the only way you can find out that there’s something better out there is to first believe there’s something better out there. What other choice is there?”― Greg Behrendt
“Don’t spend your time on and give your heart to any guy who makes you wonder about anything related to his feelings for you”― Greg Behrendt
“I’m about to make a wild, extreme, and severe relationship rule: THE WORD "BUSY" IS A LOAD OF CRAP AND IS MOST OFTEN USED BY ASSHOLES. The word “busy” is the relationship Weapon of Mass Destruction. Remember: Men are never too busy to get what they want.”― Greg Behrendt
“When it comes to men, deal with them as they are, not how you’d like them to be.”― Greg Behrendt
“If a guy truly likes you, but for personal reasons he needs to take things slow, he will let you know that immediately. He won’t keep you guessing, because he’ll want to make sure you don’t get frustrated and go away.”― Greg Behrendt
“..he may love you, he may miss you, but ultimately he's just not that into you.”― Greg Behrendt
"If a dude isn't calling you when he says he will, or making sure you know that he's dating you, then you already have your answer. Stop making excuses for him, his actions are screaming the truth: He's just not that into you."― Greg Behrendt
“We’re taught that in life, we should try to look on the bright side, to be optimistic. Not in this case. In this case, look on the dark side. Assume rejection first. Assume you’re the rule, not the exception.”― Liz Tuccillo
