Greg Behrendt quotes (showing 1-30 of 83)

“If he’s not calling you, it’s because you are not on his mind. If he creates expectations for you, and then doesn’t follow through on little things, he will do same for big things. Be aware of this and realize that he’s okay with disappointing you. Don’t be with someone who doesn’t do what they say they’re going to do. If he’s choosing not to make a simple effort that would put you at ease and bring harmony to a recurring fight, then he doesn’t respect your feelings and needs. “Busy” is another word for “asshole.” “Asshole” is another word for the guy you’re dating. You deserve a fcking phone call.”
Greg Behrendt
“I'm about to make a wild, extreme and severe relationship rule: the word busy is a load of crap and is most often used by assholes. The word "busy" is the relationship Weapon of Mass Destruction. It seems like a good excuse, but in fact in every silo you uncover, all you're going to find is a man who didn't care enough to call. Remember men are never to busy to get what they want.”
Greg Behrendt
“A man who wants to make a relationship work will move mountains to keep the
woman he loves”
Greg Behrendt, He's Just Not That Into You: The No-Excuses Truth to Understanding Guys
“Here's something else to think about: calling when you say you're going to is the very first brick in the house you are building of love and trust. If he can't lay this one stupid brick down, you ain't never gonna have a house baby, and it's cold outside.”
Greg Behrendt, He's Just Not That Into You: The No-Excuses Truth to Understanding Guys
“Let’s start with this statistic: You are delicious. Be brave, my sweet. I know you can get lonely. I know you can crave companionship and sex and love so badly that it physically hurts. But I truly believe that the only way you can find out that there’s something better out there is to first believe there’s something better out there. What other choice is there?”
Greg Behrendt, He's Just Not That Into You
“Don’t spend your time on and give your heart to any guy who makes you wonder about anything
related to his feelings for you”
Greg Behrendt, He's Just Not That Into You: The No-Excuses Truth to Understanding Guys
“Don’t be flattered that he misses you. He should miss you. You are deeply missable. However, he’s still the same person who just broke up with you. Remember, the only reason he can miss you is because he’s choosing, every day, not to be with you.”
Greg Behrendt, He's Just Not That Into You: The No-Excuses Truth to Understanding Guys
“You picked a lemon, throw it away lemonade is overrated. Freaks should remain at the circus, not in your apartment. You already have one asshole. You don’t need another. Make a space in your life for the glorious things you deserve. Have faith.”
Greg Behrendt, He's Just Not That Into You: The No-Excuses Truth to Understanding Guys
“Girls are taught a lot of stuff growing up. If a guy punches you he likes you. Never try to trim your own bangs and someday you will meet a wonderful guy and get your very own happy ending. Every movie we see, Every story we're told implores us to wait for it, the third act twist, the unexpected declaration of love, the exception to the rule. But sometimes we're so focused on finding our happy ending we don't learn how to read the signs. How to tell from the ones who want us and the ones who don't, the ones who will stay and the ones who will leave. And maybe a happy ending doesn't include a guy, maybe... it's you, on your own, picking up the pieces and starting over, freeing yourself up for something better in the future. Maybe the happy ending is... just... moving on. Or maybe the happy ending is this, knowing after all the unreturned phone calls, broken-hearts, through the blunders and misread signals, through all the pain and embarrassment you never gave up hope.”
Greg Behrendt
“Busy' is another word for 'asshole'. 'Asshole' is another word for the guy you're dating.”
Greg Behrendt, He's Just Not That Into You: The No-Excuses Truth to Understanding Guys
“Because here’s what guys don’t do if they can’t live without you: They don’t break up with you.”
Greg Behrendt, He's Just Not That Into You: The No-Excuses Truth to Understanding Guys
“It's very tempting when you really want to be with someone to settle for much, much less -- even a vague pathetic facsimile of less -- than you would have ever imagined. Remember always what you set out to get and please don't settle for less. These guys exist because there are a lot of women out there who allow them to.”
Greg Behrendt
“Life is hard enough as it is without choosing someone difficult to share it with”
Greg Behrendt, He's Just Not That Into You: The No-Excuses Truth to Understanding Guys
“Alone also means available for someone outstanding.”
Greg Behrendt, It's Called a Breakup Because It's Broken: The Smart Girl's Break-Up Buddy
“But what I can do is paint you a picture of what you’ll never see when you’re with a guy who’s really into you: You’ll never see you staring maniacally at your phone, willing it to ring. You’ll never see you ruining an evening with friends because you’re calling for your messages every fifteen seconds. You’ll never see you hating yourself for calling him when you know you shouldn’t have. What you will see is you being treated so well that no phone antics will be necessary. You’ll be too busy being adored.”
Greg Behrendt, He's Just Not That Into You: The No-Excuses Truth to Understanding Guys
“If the guy you’re dating doesn’t seem to be completely into you, or you feel the need to start ‘figuring him out,’ please consider the glorious thought that he might just not be that into you. And then free yourself to go find someone that is.”
Greg Behrendt
“We have become a sloppy bunch of people. We say things we don't mean. We make promises we don't keep. "I'll call you." "Let's get together." We know we won't. On the Human Interaction Stock Exchange, our words have lost almost all their value. And the spiral continues, as we now don't even expect people to keep their word; in fact we might even be embarrassed to point out to the dirty liar that they never did what they said they'd do. So if a guy you're dating doesn't call when he says he's doing to, why should that be such a big deal? Because you should be dating a man who's at least as good as his word.”
Greg Behrendt
“We're taught that in life, we should try to look on the bright side. Not in this case. In this case, assume rejection first. Assume you're the rule, not the exception. It's liberating. But we also know it's not an easy concept. -He's not just into you”
Greg Behrendt
“I’m about to make a wild, extreme, and severe relationship rule: THE WORD "BUSY" IS A LOAD OF CRAP AND IS MOST OFTEN USED BY ASSHOLES. The word “busy” is the relationship Weapon of Mass Destruction. Remember: Men are never too busy to get what they want.”
Greg Behrendt, He's Just Not That Into You: The No-Excuses Truth to Understanding Guys
“He doesn’t have to love your CD collection. He doesn’t have to love your shoes. But any good, mature guy better make an attempt to love your friends and family—especially when they’re great.”
Greg Behrendt, He's Just Not That Into You: The No-Excuses Truth to Understanding Guys
“Being brokenhearted is like having broken ribs. On the outside it looks like nothing's wrong, but every breath hurts.”
Greg Behrendt, It's Called a Breakup Because It's Broken: The Smart Girl's Break-Up Buddy
“When it comes to men, deal with them as they are, not how you’d like them to be.”
Greg Behrendt, He's Just Not That Into You: The No-Excuses Truth to Understanding Guys
“I'm tired of seeing great women in bullshit relationships.”
Greg Behrendt, He's Just Not That Into You: The No-Excuses Truth to Understanding Guys
“The quickest way to rectify that mistake (choosing the wrong person) is by learning from that, moving on, and choosing much more wisely in the future.”
Greg Behrendt, He's Just Not That Into You: The No-Excuses Truth to Understanding Guys
“We (men) would rather lose an arm out a city bus window than tell you simply, “You’re not the
one.” We are quite sure you will kill us or yourself or both—or even worse, cry and yell at us.”
Greg Behrendt, He's Just Not That Into You: The No-Excuses Truth to Understanding Guys
“If a guy truly likes you, but for personal reasons he needs to take things slow, he will let you know that immediately. He won’t keep you guessing,
because he’ll want to make sure you don’t get frustrated and go away.”
Greg Behrendt, He's Just Not That Into You: The No-Excuses Truth to Understanding Guys
“Don't waste the pretty”
Greg Behrendt
“If a man is really into you, nothing will stop him from being with you - including a fear of intimacy.”
