He's Just Not That Into You.......Duh

Last Friday I went to see the new movie "He's Just Not That Into You" based on the book by the same title. I tagged along with my daughters and 10 of their female co-workers who were doing an intervention on one of their other co-workers. It seems (name with held) has been dating a guy for 3 years who keeps delaying, postponing, coming up with excuses and not marrying this girl. Amazingly enough she is a very pretty girl who seems to be quite intelligent yet.....she needed to see a movie that basically told her that if the following scenarios apply:

He's not calling you
He's not having sex with you
He's having sex with someone else
He doesn't want to marry you
He's breaking up with you
He disappeared on you
He's married (or any other insane variation of being unavailable)

Then............he's just not that into you!

I don't know about anyone else but these scenarios seem self-explanatory to me. Yet....women continually rationalize and disect every word and action a man spews while continually making excuses for them. After giving the whole thing some thought I looked at this lovely young woman and said, "If you want a chimichanga you don't go to a Chinese restaurant. In other words...if you want to get married you don't hold on to an ole boy who won't commit! Simple as that! Don't waste your time!

Oh, I LOVE chimichangas!! LOL

I want to see the movie too. I think that for some odd reason, young women cannot see the premise and it takes us oldies to realize how clueless they are!

Isn't it a shame that we have to get old to get any sense. That's why I just have to hang on to the idea of reincarnation. I need to believe all this knowledge will be useful in my next life! ha
