I was recently reminded of He’s just not that into you at a games night. One of my colleagues was telling us about how this movies changed her outlook on life and relationships. I had previously watched this years ago but barely remembered it, so last night I decided to rewatch it. Here are the main points that the movie was trying to emphasise:
- Society programmes women to go for asshole guys by telling girls that boys are mean because they like them. No wonder so many women stay in abusive relationships, because they are been taught from a young age that being pushed and picked on is love.
- When a guys wants you, he will let you know!! Women need to stop reading signs into everything. He is not flirting with another woman because he’s trying to make you jealous, he’s doing it because he’s into her and not you. Simple!
- Always assume you’re the rule not the exception. The rule is if a guys doesn’t respond back he isn’t into you. Yes there is a very very small chance that he lost his phone and your number (although ICloud/ Googledrive saves all your contacts), but chances are he has it and doesn’t want to talk to you.
- Also lastly, don’t try to ruin people’s marriages because it won’t end well for you. Although it takes two to wreck a home, you (Scarlett Johansson’s character) don’t have to be one of the two.
Although the ending was very typical of Hollywood, with its happy ending, I did enjoy the movie a lot, and would recommend it.
Thank you for reading.
