他其实没那么喜欢你 Part 17
He’s Just Not That Into You
英语原版小说《他其实没那么喜欢你》（原名:He’s Just Not That Into You),主要讲述几对友人看似错综复杂其实很普遍的爱情故事，故事摒弃了以往美剧排列组合的方式，而是分成不同角度，去看每一段独立的爱情，最终让人去回望自己身边或者亲身经历的感情。
Don't let the "honeys" and "babies" fool you. His sweet nothings are exactly that.
They are much easier to say than "I'm just not that into you."
Remember, actions speak louder than "There's no cell reception where I am right now."
The “But He's Got a Lot on His Mind” Excuse
On New Year's Day, a guy I'd had a few dates with, who I was very excited about, was late for a date.
I called him, and he, very apologetically, told me he had to go out of town to take care of his mother.
He totally forgot to call me. I'm so confused.
His mother is really sick, but it wasn't a desperate emergency; he just had to drive out to Connecticut.
Greg, I really like this guy. Please say a sick mother is a good enough excuse to forgive him,and believe he still can be into me.
Dear New Year,
Ah yes, here's a bad excuse in sick mother's clothing.
Because still, no matter what, what he's telling you is, "You're not on my mind."
Because if you were, he would have called you expressing great regret at not being able to spend the day with you.
If he had the time to pack and travel, he had the time to call you, and he chose not to. (You call it “forget.” I call it “chose not to.” )
When you like someone, they don't just slip your mind.
Especially on New Year's Day. I know it may seem like he had a good excuse, but sadly, I think your New Year started off with a big glass of “He's just not that into you.”
Now nurse your hangover and find someone who won't forget to call you.
The big question here is, “Is it okay for a guy to forget to call me?”
And I'm saying to you, “No.”
Barring disaster—someone had to be rushed to the hospital, he was just fired from his job,someone keyed his Ferrari (kidding) —he should never forget to call you.
If I like you, I don't forget you, ever.
Don't you want the guy who'll forget about all the other things in his life before he forgets about you?
