Greg behrendt advice dating
The subtitle of the book speaks of “understanding guys” but once reading the book, there are neither direct explanations nor even apologies as to why men behave that way.The book depicts man as rather one-dimensional, that man’s responsibility in a relationship is limited to whether he is there physically and maybe even emotionally but there no justification as to why a man behaves the way he does.If this were true, men could simply whatever they what without consequences.There is where the weakness of the authors is highlighted.If he does not have sex with you, you’re supposed to drop him like a hot potato. People is long-term relationships know that sex is not the foundation of good relationship, however good it may be.Behrendt writes that one should never be crazy, that women should not be the ones to initiate a call, ask a man what he thinks and all, just simply move on.
The book is divided into 16 chapters and the first 11 chapters deal with scenarios that denote that someone is not “into you”.Before Jennifer Aniston, Drew Barrymore, Scarlett Johansson, Jennifer Connelly, Justin Long and Ben Affleck took He’s Just Not That into You to the big screen, it first started out as a dating guide book penned by a consultant and writer of the hit risque HBO show Sex and the City.Greg Behrendt, the show’s consultant, came up with the phrase, which eventually became the title of the book, during a writers’ meeting when a staff (a woman) asked for a feedback with a man she was dating.The book is supposed to guide women to understanding men but putting in a multiple choice entry is somewhat pathetic.Everybody knows that multiple questions are the easiest to answer since there are already limited options.
The workbook is intended to allow the readers to act out, in a way, the “lessons” dished out by the authors, to have a put the theory into practice, so to speak.
