If you were to ask what my favorite movie was, I’d probably lie and say some witty comedy that wouldn’t make me seem totally melancholy. Despite the fact that it dates back to 2009, one of my girly-faves is “He’s Just Not That Into You” because of it’s dark relationship and dating humor. It’s also taught me a lot of things, and as pathetic as it is, I totally reference this movie in my own personal dating life. There are some incredibly faultless facts in the movie, along with some tolerable acting. So, without further adieu here’s what “He’s Just Not That Into You” has taught me:
1. Actions speak louder than words
If someone is repetitively hinting at the fact that they don’t care about you, they’re not just doing it to play hard to get.
2. He’s not waiting for you to make the first move
Okay, maybe there is a tiny exception to this rule, because maybe some of us are slightly intimidating. However, I feel like 9 times out of ten (that ratio is definitely bullshit) guys want to lead, wether it’s calling, texting, driving, whatever. He’s not staring at his phone waiting for your name to pop up, after all- if he knows anything about you, he’d know that you’re too petty to text first anyways.
3. Rejection happens,
and yeah, it sucks. Think about it, for every say, 10 guys you ghost there are bound to be a couple who do vice versa to you. That’s okay, because there are probably 10 guys in your DM’s who are praying you accidentally hit “accept” on their message so that you can get guilted into replying.
If you haven’t seen the movie, I recommend it; even if it’s just to stare into Bradley Cooper’s dreamy eyes……
