It's definitely worth a certificate, if you are looking for some snarky but kind guy advice. In fact, I've already put it to work!

And, I'm sorry, but unless you're running from lava or something, you have time to call. Period.

i dont understand why somebody's love should be judged on how many phone calls they make

maybe some people just arent phone people

if one is judging how good a relationship is based on calls anyway it cant be that great of a relationship in the first place

i dont need a book to tell me a guy's just not that into me. after so many times of any guy telling me when he'll call me when he never does, then i have to assume he's full of shit.

to Icelle, too

Chizip, the point of calling is that it shows that a guy CARES. If a guy has other ways of showing that, then fine...but if he never calls when he says he will, or if he goes out of town and doesn't bother to call...then why should I give him the time of day?

I know I'm definitely not a phone person. I've never really understood the whole arguement over phone calls, either. If a person never calls you, I can see where it's worth being a little upset. But if they have made the effort to call you before, and miss a day or something...I don't see that as worth getting all upset about.

I'm suppose to take advice from some that was "based on a popular episode of Sex and the City"?



Umm...don't think so.

I think the flip side of what the book seems to be discussing are the guys that are like women in a man's body in terms of societally acceptable expression of feelings and so on. The sort who need you to call them, you to validate them, you to tell them you love them and be with them, and who overanalyze every feeling and every thought. I know several such specimen, and frankly, I find that to be more personally irritating than the other sort, because I can't stand being coddled.

chizzer's right.

i DESPISE talking on the phone. don't know why, but i just loathe it. i would rather NOT call, and wait and see you later, than call you. that's how much i hate it. i even hate talking to my parents on the phone. i went out with rachel for a year and a half and HATED talking to her on the phone, even though i loved her.

you of all people can attest to my dislike of the telephone, pax.

Well, ja, but at least you called.

And that makes all the difference, as they say.

if i see/or feel a potential relationship has no future ive always tried to end it quickly.

That is good advice diamond. I have followed that in the past. I relate it to "no games", as I hate the thought of hurting someone.

But even if people do follow that advice, the other person can still kid themselves and be in the same position of finding out the hard way that "He's (or she's) Just Not That Into You".
