We’ve all been there. Well, most of us have anyways–circling the question of whether or not that “someone” is really into you or just playing you for a fool. For the various reasons she keeps you around, here are the sure, tall tell signs that she’s really, just not that into you.
1- Doesn’t hold your gaze or look into your eyes. If a woman is really into you, she’s definitely going to want to stare in those baby blue/brown/greens for longer than a few seconds at a time.
2- “Hey I have to call you back”–and then doesn’t. This one is kind of obvious, yet most humans want the best from people and expect the best. “There’s no way that he/she can’t be into ME?” Sorry to break it to you, we’re no psychologists over here, but–she’s not that into you.
3- Talks about other men when she’s with you. If she’s yapping about Gary and Tom, her straight guy friends, or references that she still may or may not be in love with her ex boyfriend–she’s not that into you.
4- Not into make-out sessions…with you. Kissing= magic. Without it, you just don’t have the spark.
5- You see new photos of her with other guys on Facebook. Should I say more?
6- She asks for grooming/ fashion advice more than she should. If she does, she sees you more like a guy friend and definitely not a lover. With lovers, mystery is always better, at least in the beginning.
7- She openly flirts with the waiter or bartender. Either she’s not that into you, or she wants to make you jealous. Either way, you don’t need a lady like that.
8- Never brings up her parents, let alone bring you up to them. If she’s never mentioned you EVER to her parents, chances are, you don’t stand a chance.
9- If she seems constantly distracted when you’re telling her a story. (She’s checking her phone, the door, her plate, her fingernails…way more than she’s checking you out.
10- She says “I like you, really. Just, as a friend…”.
A friend is a friend is a friend. And that is all it will ever be, so move on. If she actually has to say it, then there’s really no chance of you getting the girl. It’s one thing for friendship to turn into romance, but when it’s openly verbalized…well, there you go.
According to a recent University study, women actually notice and subconsciously seek out well-dressed, stylish men. The reason? Men that are “put together” on the outside means that they are more likely to put food on the table. Women are, biologically programmed, to find the strongest mate, and yes fashion has it’s aesthetic hand in the mating game.
Joshua Linam, a New York City-based freelance journalist, recently said in Askmen.com:
“In one university study, women rated the attractiveness of one man dressed in several different getups. Outfits ranged from a designer suit and tricked-out watch all the way down to a lowly fast-food uniform. As you can imagine, ladies preferred the power suit to the burger-flipping one. But it’s why they chose the businessman that’s important.
The study notes that girls actively sought signs of “status” when judging the man’s clothes, and they liked that look better because it suggested a good provider. In other words, women do care what you wear, and this is why looks matter. Girls favor a put-together guy because it’s likelier he can put food on the table…..Clothes can be a tool to boost your standing with the opposite sex, but what kind of style should you be channeling? Fortunately, you don’t have to be a billionaire to win a lady’s hand. More realistically, you just have to nail the right details.
The goods you need to command a girl’s attention: A quality timepiece, a fitted (though not necessarily designer) suit, a well-polished pair of oxfords or boots, and a crisp button-down shirt. Equipped with these style essentials, you can scientifically increase your chances with women. (Note: Unless you respond to the name Jay-Z, never “over-bling” yourself. The risk of looking like a Christmas ornament stands too great.”
So with that said, here are some ultra-hipster looks, and we mean that in a good way, to start of the holiday season just right. You don’t want to end up at a Christmas Party wearing the wrong thing, do you? Only to let that other wanna-be ask your should-be lady out for drinks the next day? We didn’t think so.
Start with the right sweater. Women love a guy who is comfortable wearing a “cheesy” grandpa sweater. It screams confidence, not Screech from Saved By The Bell. Dress it up with nice jeans and shoes (see our other blog articles for that). Maybe some glasses to add the right touch. This Green Cardigan Sweater from Urban Outfitters does the job:
Pair it with a confidently festive Christmas Tree Cufflink to add a fun feel to the winter work day suit!
The Classic V-Neck Shirt for underneath said sweater. This super soft cotton T from The Gap is just one example. If $16 is too much to splurge on a single T-shirt, the regular Hanes packaged-white and grey ones will do just fine. Just remember, the softer the better–and the price of cotton, unfortunately, is rising.
These Renegade Wash 1969 Original Fit (Or Slim) Gap Jeans go well with both the sweater and blazer above:
You can’t leave home without altra hipster briefcase. It would just be, a crime. So to assuage this crime, try these Vintage Briefcases from Urban Outfitters, priced from $175.
Washed Khakis are in for just about any working guy this season. And “working guy” is in this season, especially with all the lay-offs. Gap, yet again, features a perfect pant. Secret: Gap.com carried literally every size you can imagine. Can’t find your size at the local Gap? Go online:
Pair the very “in” rustic, forest-chic look with a designer Enamel Bear Cufflinks for only $50:
And if the Vintage Briefcase is too much for your taste, (don’t worry we don’t judge around here, we just give solutions) take a look at this Pendleton Ombre messenger bag from Urban.We think it is winter hip, chic, and robust:

Over 70 arrests were made in the wee morning hours today in an ambushed attack on the Wall Street Protesters. At approximately 1am, police in raid gear insisted the protesters evacuate Zuccotti Park, where they have been stationed for weeks. The Constitution of the United States dictates the public’s Right to Assemble. Yes, it’s a privately owned park but available for public use. This protest consists of the general public, for the public.
Ironically this comes during the week of the largest Student Week of Action scheduled for November 17th.
After passively “supporting ” the OWS movement, billionaire mayor Bloomberg seems to have recanted his position. To make matters worse, it seems there was a “media blackout,” according to the Huffington Post:
“Reporter after reporter — many using the hashtag “#mediablackout” — tweeted through the night, saying that police had either blocked them from seeing what was happening or had acted violently towards them. Some correspondents were also among the scores of people arrested by police.
At his press conference about the raid on Tuesday morning, Mayor Michael Bloomberg said journalists were barred from covering the raid “to protect members of the press,” and “to prevent a situation from getting worse.”
Why should democracy be covered up, in blackness, kept under guards from the general media? The protesters were given notice that occupation of the park “poses an increasing health and fire safety hazard to those camped in the park, the city’s first responders and the surrounding community.”
LA Times reports that over 5,000 books were thrown out in the raid. “More than 5,000 books in the Occupy Wall Street library were reportedly thrown away when police moved in to remove protesters from Zuccotti Park in New York early Tuesday.
During the police raid, Occupy Wall Street librarians tweeted, “NYPD destroying american cultural history, they’re destroying the documents, the books, the artwork of an event in our nation’s history,” Galleycat reports. “Right now, the NYPD are throwing over 5,000 books from our library into a dumpster. Will they burn them? … Call 311 or 212-639-9675 now and ask why Mayor Bloomberg is throwing the 5,554 books from our library into a dumpster.””
The Village Voice has asked city officials what happened to the library books, but has not yet received a response.
Currently a judge has signed an order allowing protesters to return to Zuccotti Park with their belongings; further court action is expected Tuesday.
What is the recent news for OWS?
From every conservative, large corporate angle, OWS protesters receive negative criticism. But that doesn’t mean they are going to stop any time soon. Fox 5, Bill O’Reilly, Rush Limbaugh, and other conservative tycoons, uninformed as they may be, are chumming the movement up to a bunch of yuppie kids without a definitive cause. Maybe they failed to read all the detailed initiatives and collective ideas from the OWS website. Maybe they only follow their own news. Whatever the case, take a look at this protester’s surprisingly elegant response to a Fox 5 News reporter’s questions:
Today, November 3rd, 2011, The Port of Oakland was shut down by protesters, almost paralyzing the busy port with activity. All eyes have been on Oakland since the former US Marine was injured by the Oakland police during a protest.
The Guardian.com reports the following:
“Maritime area operations will resume when it is safe and secure to do so,” the port said in a statement. A port spokesman said officials hoped to reopen the facility on Thursday morning. Protesters, who streamed across an overpass to gather in front of the port gates, stood on top of tractor-trailers stopped in the middle of the street. Others climbed on to scaffolding over rail tracks as a band played a version of the Led Zeppelin song Whole Lotta Love, using amplifiers powered by stationary bike generators.
“The reason I’m here is I’m sick and tired of trying to figure out where I should put my vote between the lesser of two evils,” student Sarah Daniel, 28, said at the port. The anti-Wall Street activists, who complain bitterly about a financial system they believe benefits mainly corporations and the wealthy, aim to disrupt commerce with a special focus on banks and other symbols of corporate America.
Protesters, prior to marching on the port, also blocked the downtown intersection of 14th street and Broadway, where ex-marine Scott Olsen was seriously wounded with a head injury during a clash with police on 25 October.”
TOMORROW IN NYC, Meeting at CUNY’s The Graduate Center at 34th and 5th ave for a general assembly. 6pm, November 4th on the 8th floor. This is in an effort to plan for the student week of actions Nov 14th-21st (http://studentweekofaction.wordpress.com/), the city-wide day of actions on the 17th and the student mobilization around tuition hikes on the 21st. Every small organization counts! Let education be the first milestone.
Since fall is on the horizon that means that hunting season is right around the corner. Hunters always look forward to fall because it gives them the opportunity to get out in the woods and hunt for different kinds of game. For some guys, hunting is just as enjoyable as going to a football game. For others … not so much. If you’re a hunter, then you’re probably an outdoorsy kind of guy who likes getting his hands dirty. You probably aren’t up-to-date on the latest cufflink fashions and designs, either. This also means that you probably aren’t aware that there are novelty cufflinks for guys just like you. We have a selection of Hunting and Fishing Cufflinks that are perfect for any hunter or fisherman. Just because you enjoy casting a fishing line in the middle of a muddy river or hiking through the woods in camouflage doesn’t mean that you can’t ditch the fishing pole or shotgun and exchange them for a pair of cufflinks every once and a while.
Even hunters get invited to formal affairs, so you’ll need a pair of cufflinks to go with your outfit. Lucky for you, we have plenty of fun and fashionable Hunting and Fishing Cufflinks to choose from. The next time you have to get dressed up, snap on a pair of Deer Crossing Cufflinks. Then you can dream about catching a prize-winning deer no matter what boring formal event you are forced to attend. Just make sure to leave your shotgun at home.
