After my fabtabulous time in London with the man crush the other week, I have essentially been feeling like Gigi (Ginnifer Goodwin) in He's Just Not That Into You! I might not be sitting bog eyed at my telemophone all day long, but I am a little strung up on the guy, not gonna lie (although I ought to).
But my behavior of late has definitely catapulted me into thoughts of this film. Over analysing every moment of that weekend, because I haven't heard from man crush in a week, is of course laughable! I know this & yet, I seem unable to actually stop myself! Help! How am I this strung!? It's REDICulous!
This is what happens when you deprive yourself of socialisation in order to gain from the greater good, i.e. La Grande Aventure. It's unhealthy! A week seems like a month & each day just drags! I won't even know how to communicate once I'm out in France. Human contact is becoming extinct!
However, regardless of my dwindling abilities to act NORMAL, I have at least learnt something from my previous misadventures with the men shapes of this world, perhaps man crush especially & definitely from the greatness of this film:
Number One: A wise person once told me that if a guy wants to be with a girl, he will make it happen, no matter what. Therefore, no amount of crunching on a guy,
stalking, texting, calling, Facebook messaging is gonna make him like you. So if he doesn't respond, or contact you AT ALL...Then take the hint! He's just not that into you!
Number Two: We are all programmed to believe that if a guy acts like a total jerk that means he likes you. The truth is, he's just a jerk! I have fallen for this guy time & time again, thinking that it's okay that he acts like an asshole, 'cause y'know, underneath he likes me, he really likes me. Well, NO, he doesn't, he's just an asshole! MOVE THE HELL ON! If a guy is treating you like he doesn't give a shit, he genuinely doesn't give a shit. No exceptions.
Number Three: "I had this guy leave me a voice mail at work, so I called him at home, then he e-mailed me to my Blackberry, so I texted to his cell, then he e-mailed me to my home account & the whole thing just got out of control. I miss the days when you had one phone number & one answering machine & that one answering machine has one cassette tape & that one cassette tape either had a message from a guy or it didn't. Now you just have to go around checking all these different portals just to get rejected by seven different technologies. It's exhausting." Clearly we are all way too hooked on technology! No decent relationship can be formed based on technology alone. We really need to reintroduce FACE TO FACE time! Plus, when things are in written format, things can easily be misconstrued.
Number Four: If a guy doesn't call you, he doesn't want to call you. Why wait around. You're only wasting your own time waiting for the call that is never gonna come. You could of had your nails did in the time you spent checking your voicemail! Girlfriend, put the phone down. Step away from the phone!
Number Five: Don't give up hope just yet. But don't forget that you should be the most important person in your life & although this one hot to trot might be the apple of your eye right now, if he turns out to be less than impressive, MOVE THE HELL ON! 'Cause believe me, there will be just another hot (possibly hotter) guy just around the corner. Don't you let nobody put you down & that includes yourself!
Have standards & stick to them, have respect for yourself if you want to be respected & don't give up or give in!
