ABC News On Campus reporter Cate Smithson blogs:
Forget about the requisite flowers and chocolate. This Valentine’s Day, it looks like what many of us are asking for is the verbal equivalent of a good swift kick in the pants: He’s. Just. Not. That. Into. You.
The book-turned-blockbuster movie, which opened Feb. 6, has already cleared the $27 million mark in spite of less than stellar reviews, which makes me wonder: Are we all so desperate for a little dating advice that we’ll settle for Hollywood’s version?
Probably. But hey! In light of the recession and that whole poor college kid thing, save yourself the price of a movie ticket and hear this, the abridged Valentine’s Day version of “He’s Just Not That Into You”:
If you’re not sure if you’re dating, he’s just not that into you. Like it or not, February is the time of year to profess your love, or at least change your relationship status on Facebook. Ambiguity is bad.
If you haven’t brought up Valentine’s Day to one another, he’s just not that into you.
Sure, some people think the holiday is nonsense, and they’re probably right, but any guy worth his weight in candy hearts will have the decency to at least make mention of it.
If it’s the day before Valentine’s Day and you haven’t heard from him in a week, he’s just not that into you. Chances are he’s avoiding the increasing probability that he’ll be confronted by you, your loneliness and the holiday — aka the perfect storm — and has conveniently lost his SIM card or something.
If any of this hits even somewhat close to home, move on. See the movie if it helps. Just don’t go on that predictable calorie binge — spring break will thank you for it.
