The other night I was scrolling through Netflix and saw He’s Just Not that Into You, which I haven’t watched in a long time. As I have been doing the dating app thing for a little while, I jokingly thought to myself that I could use a refresher on the topic. It’s actually also just a really good movie, so I decided to watch.
The plot of the movie revolves around a guy giving his friend, who is a girl, dating advice. The girl’s character is somewhat of an ingenue and wants to find love but always seems to fall or chase guys who undervalue her or that don’t really want to be with her. While I know there are a lot of women out there who know what they are looking for and know when it isn’t right, I think that many of us can also identify with falling for “the wrong one” or continuing to make ourselves available to and seeking out someone who ultimately didn’t want to be with us.
