So I keep seeing these promos for He’s J.ust No.t That In.to You and the thing that keeps echoing in my head is: Really? I don’t mean no harm but are women really that dense? Do women really believe that if a man is aloof and acting like he’s uninterested than that means that he really is? Really? When I was younger I may not have known a lot about men but I did know a lot about self-preservation. I don’t put forth the effort if I don’t anticipate some kind of reciprocation. I have never put myself out there like that. I’m not willing to be humiliated because there might be a slim chance that some dude will grace me with a phone call. Huh? I love me way too much. Yes, I have been duped (married a bigamist, remember?) and every relationship has not been a success but I have never run behind some man. When I was a kid my mother told me that “girls don’t call boys” and when I didn’t listen to her and called my boyfriend anyway, you know what his mama told me? She said, “Don’t call here. If he wants to talk to you he’ll call you.” That’s when I knew that my mama was right and that is one piece of advice that I have always adhered to.
