He’s Just Not That Into You is the story of nine different people and each has different romantic issues they are dealing with, some of them together. Three of the five women, Gigi (Ginnifer Goodwin), Beth (Jennifer Aniston) and Janine (Jennifer Connelly), who work in an office together.
Gigi is single and is very interested in meeting the right man but she tends to over analyze “the signals” men give off and assumes they are interested in her, even when they don’t call her. While venting her frustration at a bar she meets the bar manager Alex (Justin Long) who helps her interpret the signs and signals given off by her dates.
Beth on the other hand is living with Neil (Ben Affleck) and they have been a couple for 7 years and she wants to get married but Neil is firmly against marriage and wants them to stay together the way they are. Beth is feeling pressure because she has two sisters who are already married and a third that recently got engaged. She confronts Neil about their relationship and when he tells her he still doesn’t want to get married, she breaks up with him and he moves out and lives on his sailboat.
Janine however is married and she and Ben (Bradley Cooper) are in the process of renovating their new house together. Janine is somewhat of a paranoid neat freak and finds signs that Ben may have started smoking again which sends her into a tizzy because her father died as a result of smoking. Ben and Janine have been together since college and got married after Janine issued an ultimatum… marry her or break up.
