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。
Dear Really Really,
Let's talk about Johnny Really Good Friend and your Johnny Really Great Friendship.
It sure works out well for him. Because you were a pal during his disaster of a marriage, he will always be able to play the “friend“ card with you.
He only has to be responsible for the expectations of a friend, rather than the far greater expectations of a boyfriend.
After all, being a "pal," you wouldn't want to put him through any more emotional turmoil while he's going through his "very traumatic breakup."
He's got the ultimate situation: a great friend with all the benefits of a girlfriend, whom he can see or not see whenever he wants to.
He may be one of your closest friends, but I'm sorry to say, as a boyfriend, he's just not that into you.
Beware of the word “friend.“ It can often be used by men or the women that love them to excuse the most unfriendly behavior.
Personally, when I'm picking friends, I like the ones who don't make me cry myself to sleep.
The “But We Really Are Dating“ Excuse
Dear Greg, I've been dating a guy for three months.
We spend four or five nights a week together. We go to events together.
He calls me when he says he's going to and never flakes out on me.
We're having a great time. He recently informed me that he doesn't want to be anyone's boyfriend and isn't ready for a serious relationship.
But I know he's not dating anyone else. I think he's just scared of the term “boyfriend.“
Greg, I'm always hearing that women should listen to men's actions, not their words.
So doesn't that mean I should just ignore him and be secure in the fact that he wants to spend all this time with me—that no matter what he's actually saying, the truth is he's really into me?
