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。
We were shocked, appalled, amused, horrified, and above all, intrigued.
We sensed immediately that this man might bespeaking the truth.
A truth that we, in our combined hundred years of dating experience, had never considered, and definitely never considered saying out loud.
"Okay, he might have a point,“ we reluctantly agreed.
“But Greg couldn't possibly understand my very busy and complicated possible future husband.“
Soon we went around the room, Greg, the all-knowing Buddha, listening to story after mixed-message story.
We had excuses for all these men, from broken dialing fingers to difficult childhoods.
In the end, one by one, they were shot down by Greg's powerful silver bullet.
Greg made us see, after an enormous amount of effort, that if a sane guy really likes you,there ain't nothing that's going to get in his way.
And if he's not sane, why would you want him?
He could back it up too: He had years of playing the field, being the bad boy, being the good boy, and then finally falling in love and marrying a really fantastic woman.
A collective epiphany burst forth in the room, and for me in particular.
All these years I'd been complaining about men and their mixed messages; now I saw they weren't mixed messages at all.
I was the one that was mixed up. Because the fact was, these men had simply not been that into me.
Now, at first glance it seems that this should have been demoralizing to us, it should have sent us all into a tailspin.
Yet the opposite was true. Knowledge is power, and more importantly, knowledge saves us time.
I realized that from that day forward I would be spared hours and hours of waiting by the phone, hours and hours of obsessing with my girlfriends, hours and hours of just hoping his mixed messages really meant “I'm in love with you and want to be with you.“
Greg reminded us that we were all beautiful, smart, funny women, and we shouldn't be wasting our time figuring out why a guy isn't calling us.
As Greg put it, we shouldn't waste the pretty.
