Why is He Just Not That Into You?

I can humbly accept the fact when I am just not a particular young man's desired commodity. The elephant in the room traipsing, nay promenading about is, "Why?"

Analyzing this too much leads to self-deprecation, many a tub of Ben & Jerry's, and a consequential sugar don't do it!

My heart-your-face friend Anna has a philosophy that all the men who don't want us are indubitably gay. As true as that may be, I have a different school of thought: Ice cream.

Picture the dating pool as Baskin Robbins - 31 flavors of frozen delightfulness. Each of those flavors is someone's favorite, each of them is highly desirable to someone, somewhere. If my favorite flavor is chocolate raspberry, there is nothing you can do to convince me to want another flavor. If you ask, "What is wrong with the other flavors?" my answer will be, "Nothing! I just want this one."

Just because someone doesn't want your Very Berry Strawberry doesn't mean there is anything wrong with it. Soon enough, dreamalicious hunkomania is going to walk into your store and you are his favorite flavor. Rest assured, he is going to want to get him a piece of that! As Ross would say, "Grab a spoon."

i think the best thing i ever did for myself was to realize that no matter what i did, some guys would just never be interested. it sounds so simple and obvious, yet, just like you have discovered, it just takes a moment of enlightenment for that lightbulb-scalding hot and blinding as it may be-to turn on.

Larissa- I totally relate to food analogies. I think that I am chocolate peanut butter. One day someone will LOVE it AND I will love that dish in return! ;)

great post!

Tanisha- well said!

You are always so insightful. I'm happy being peanut butter cookie dough...just gotta find someone who loves that ;)

While we're on food analogies, I'm reminded of my philosophy that you can develop a taste for any food--you just have to have enough of it. I've proven that theory again and again. Now I guess I have to try that theory on girls.

Larissa said...

Jon, I totally agree with you. When I first started eating boogers, I never thought I'd acquire a taste for 'em.... ;-)

Am so happy to testify about a great spell caster that helped me when all hope was lost for me to unite with my ex-girlfriend that I love so much. I had a girlfriend that love me so much but something terrible happen to our relationship one afternoon when her friend that was always trying to get to me was trying to force me to make love to her just because she was been jealous of her friend that i was dating and on the scene my girlfriend just walk in and she thought we had something special doing together, i tried to explain things to her that her friend always do this whenever she is not with me and i always refuse her but i never told her because i did not want the both of them to be enemies to each other but she never believed me. She broke up with me and I tried times without numbers to make her believe me but she never believed me until one day i heard about the DR. EMU and I emailed him and he replied to me so kindly and helped me get back my lovely relationship that was already gone for two months.
