The ladies know what I'm talking about. Probably some of the men, too. That "Sex and the City" episode where that guy doesn't call Miranda and Berger tells her the secret: "He's just not that into you." Check out this article in the Washington Post about the phenomenon, and the L.A.-based comic and former "straight male" advisor to the late, beloved show who's written a book about it. Warning...not for the faint of heart. Contains phrases like: When you Google "Why didn't he call?" you get more than 1,500 hits...a column on AskMen.com called How to Reject the Girl You Don't Want.... When a guy is truly interested in a woman, he pursues her. That's the way it's always been, he says, and equality hasn't changed it...and MORE delightful tidbits... All I'm sayin' is, if you can't handle the truth, don't order the code red.

This is a great article. What a breath of fresh air. Whenever I tell people that I guy has said anything like this, everyone thinks he is an asshole, but even if I am a little stunned at first, it is so much easier than any other way of going about things. If someone isn't into me and tells me, I might be disappointed, but at least I don't have to waste time or mental energy.
