The Dos and Don'ts of Dating According to Greg Behrendt

The Dos and Don'ts of Dating According to Greg Behrendt

The day has come — He's Just Not That Into You is finally open in theaters, and I bet Greg Behrendt's series on dating and relationships has gotten you even more psyched to see it! But in case you missed any of our interview with the author himself, I'm here to recap the last two weeks for you. Enjoy!

  • As someone who gives advice for a living, check out what he says is the best piece of advice he's ever received here.
  • Technology has changed the way we do everything, so if you're curious to see how Greg thinks it's changed the way we date, click here.
  • It's a controversial debate — whether or not women should make the first move — so be sure to see what Greg has to say by clicking here.
  • Sex is a very personal matter, and choosing when to have it is a decision that's different for everyone, but what about sex on the first date? Does it mean your relationship is doomed? Or does it make no difference whatsoever? Check out Greg's opinion here.
  • We all make mistakes when it comes to dating, and Greg's probably heard every mistake in the book, so check out what he says is the most common one women make by clicking here.
  • Since He's Just Not That Into You was written over five years ago, one would think that he'd have a few things to add to the book if he had the chance, but see what he said when asked that question by clicking here.

meike, Who hasn't suffered and had doubts in a relationship? I would guess pretty much everybody, so according to you, everyone lacked self-esteem at that time. Knowing what you want in a relationship is the most important, I agree with you there, but I have to say I think there are few people who can honestly say that they knew immediately who was right and who was wrong for them during the course of their dating years, especially when they are young. This is why it's called dating, so that you can learn about yourself, make mistakes, take your knocks, and figure out what is important to you in a relationship. That process doesn't make you a pathetic loser, it just means you are human. I personally have been through situations where I have loved someone so much, and could not figure out for the life of me why it wasn't reciprocated in the same way. It was painful, but I figured it out and moved on, like most women do. However, just because I had doubts and wondered about their level of commitment didn't mean I had low self esteem. It just meant they weren't the right person, and I had to figure that out in my own time. To me, the book was a fun read and pointed out how much as women we pretend to ourselves when we really want something to happen that is never going to happen. As I read it, I thought, wow, that is me 15 years ago, I've done that, that, and that. I learned those lessons long before the book came out. .

Obviously I have very strong opinion with regards to my position on the content of this particular book and the movie. Nonetheless, I am not at the moment feel like I want to engage in lengthy and hated discussion as to why I side with the position I maintain. Therefore, I would defer anyone who is curious enough and at least has an open mind, (if you are free and wants to check this out), here is the link to an article written by Edwina Ings-Chambers entitled "The new dating cry: he's just not that into you" reflects my opinion on the subject matter strongly and clearly. She said it better than me of course. I really don't care so much about the process. I care more greatly the end goal, the ultimate goal of hitting the bull's eye. Who care what others have to say about your process and your strategy. They are not living your life and has never stepped in your shoe and walk a mile. Have a nice evening, ladies.

It really is not about me being perfect or having had my first real relationship blossom into a great marriage. It's was never a question of whether a guy I dated was "into me" or not. It's about me and what I wanted in a relationship. Therefore, I think for a woman to suffer and ponder whether a guy was into her or not only shows a real lack of her own self-esteem. That is just the short assessment of what I think of this book. The long one can be summed up in the following review:

I liked Greg on his talk show. I guess the book was enjoyable, but it didn't address ANY of the issues I've had with men...maybe I'm just really weird. I should hire a matchmaker, then, yes? [lol of course I wouldn't! That's silly] :D

Well, Meike, it's nice to know that you have always had dating success and made the right decision everytime when it comes to men. It must be nice to be perfect. I myself must be a dummy because I thoroughly enjoyed the book. Maybe if I post long enough, some of your wisdom will rub off on me.

The book is stupid. The movie is stupid. And, the "advice" Greg gives is abysmal. I liken the book to "Dating for Dummies". Period.
