I have been dating a really great guy. We have become such wonderful friends and I know we care about each other a lot. He’s hesitant to be in a relationship with me because he just got out of a long term long distance relationship, a month and a half ago.
What does he need to be "over it" and ready? How can I maintain our friendship without getting my hopes up and then be disappointed?
He’s Just Not That Into You:
The No-Excuses Truth to Understanding Guys
By Greg Behrendt and Liz Tuccillo
What it says about men: In the words of author Greg Behrendt, "If a (sane) guy really likes you, there ain’t nothing that’s going to get in his way." This bestselling book is refreshingly upbeat, managing to focus less on man-bashing and more on women’s inability to recognize a disinterested partner.
How to handle its readers: Like most self help books, readers of He’s Just Not That Into You come away highly empowered. They know if you don’t treat them properly, another, better-suited man gladly will. Women like these are likely to have little patience for your immaturity, so making a good first impression is key. Authors Greg Behrendt and Liz Tuccillo challenge their readers to avoid men who:
Keep them waiting by the phone
Are not sure they want a relationship
Make them feel sexually undesirable
Drink or do drugs to an extent it makes them uncomfortable
Fear talking about the future
