I’m old fashioned so I still have Netflix DVD. I have it because there are certain movies they don’t have streaming. A good example is, “He’s Just Not That Into You”. I put this movie at the top of my queue because I obviously need to remember the “rules”. Here they are for refresher:
1. If he doesn’t ask you out. Good one, because it’s true. If he doesn’t ask you out on a date, such as next Friday at 7 p.m. he doesn’t want you.
2. If he’s not calling you, or in this day and age if he’s not texting you. This is a fact. If you ALWAYS text first, he’s just not that into you.
3. If he’s not dating you. This is taking me out to lunch or dinner, this is seeing me in real life.
4. If he’s not having sex with you (or at least trying). This one is meh. It depends on the morals and values of each individual so I take this rule with a grain of salt.
5. If he’s having sex with someone else. This would ultimately depend on if you’re in an actual relationship or not.
6. If he only wants to see you when he’s drunk. True story. Say no more. Booty calls ‘r us!
7. If he doesn’t want to marry you. Well… this one is up in the air. I didn’t want to get married because I was afraid of divorce. My ex and I were together for 6.5 years and we broke up. So every situation is different. I think next time I do want someone that wants to marry me.
8. If he’s breaking up with you. No shit? And if you break up once, do not go back.
9. If he ghosts you. Yeah… obviously I lived this life already. Learned it from Michael. Thanks guy.
10. If he’s married. I can’t do married so this would not apply to me.
There are exceptions to these rules, but those are rare. It’s more about boundaries and trying to get a healthy relationship.
My rules now are you message me within 3 days or I’m un-matching you. If you say something gross or stupid, I will un-match you. I will tell you why. If you ask to see my tits or talk about my tits and I haven’t indicated that’s what I need from you, I will un-match you. I will also tell you why first. If you match me and expect me to message you first, after 3 days I will un-match you. Let’s talk about Hinge Justin that matched me, and then invited me to begin a conversation with him? I will start a conversation all right Hinge Justin, I will refer you to a book entitled “man the fuck up already.” Read it and get back to me.
