What are the rules again? I forgot. Ok, let's see ...
He's just not that into me if he's not asking me out. He's just not that into me if he doesn't call. He's just not that into me if he's not dating me (isn't this the same as rule #1?). He's just not that into me if he's having sex with someone else .... Oh! He's just not that into me if he doesn't want to marry me. Nice, except we're nowhere near that chapter yet, because what I want to know right now is:
You sure he's not into me if he ignores me?
Here why I am asking: I ignore men I like. A lot. In fact, the less I like you, the more chance I'm gonna be up in your grill. I might flirt with you. (Though I probably won't date you. We all know how that goes.) I don't do this because I'm a super-bitch. It's not because I like to play games. The truth is, I'm kind of shy. And maybe on the defensive. Boys you don't like can't hurt you. So, when a dude I like happens to come around, I advert my glance, look over their shoulders and generally avoid them at all costs. Say what you want, but I'm not the only women who does this. In fact, I have many friends who implore similar tactics, albeit, for a variety of reasons. But we can debate why women do this (or, more interestingly, if it is actually effective) another post.
What I want to know now, once and for all, is if men ever do the same thing. I can't accept that mind games and covert tactics of love (lol) are gender-specific. Writers of self-help books are clearly obsessed with men being simple and direct. Why don't you tell me:
Do men ever ignore a girl they are interested in? Or are the rules for real?
