Are you that into HIM?

He’s just not that into you. If you’re a woman who is still part of the dating world, there’s a pretty good chance you’ve read the book. And seen the movie. And discussed it in depth with your girlfriends. You’ve had it drilled into your head that none of these are excuses for a man not asking you out:
-He doesn’t want to ruin the friendship.
-He’s intimidated by me.
-He just wants to take it slow.
-He gave me his number…maybe I’ll just call him!
-He forgot to remember me…maybe I should remind him?

We get it already! But let’s flip this little situation around. What if you’ve been dating your man for awhile and you’re wondering if YOUR that into HIM? Check out these five tell-tale signs that you’re “just not that into him.”
1. Spending time with him feels more like an obligation than something you do for enjoyment.
You used to look forward to seeing him. Even if you lived together, you couldn’t wait to come home to him. But now, you’d rather be doing other things with your time. You resent your single gal pals for their freedom.
2. You frequently complain about him to your friends.

Your friends tell you that you either need to fix it or end it. Listen to your friends. They’ve seen you happy and if you’re miserable, they’ll be able to tell you when you may be justifying it to yourself.
3. You imagine yourself dating other men. You find yourself wondering what it would be like to be with someone else. You may have someone in particular in mind, or you may just wonder in general. What if you could do better? What if you are just settling? If you think you might be "settling" for him then you probably are. If you've been with your boyfriend for a long time or since a young age, you probably haven't had the opportunity to really explore what else is out there, and you might start wondering.
4. His quirks that once made him endearing to you are now just plain annoying. You thought it was cute on the first few dates, then it sort of got on your nerves, but now it annoys the heck out of you. Also, things that you never liked about him but you "tolerated" now seem more important, and you aren't overlooking them as much.
5. You think he’s trying too hard. His extravagant, romantic gifts annoy you. The dozen red roses most women would melt over make you just a bit nauseous.

If one or more of these signs sound familiar, flip the familiar "He's Just Not That Into You" phrase and ask yourself, "Am I really that into him?" If not...move on. You deserve it.
