Even though she's been burned before (and if you read the book, you'll know this is an understatement) Julie doesn't buy into books like "The Rules" and "He's Not That Into You" which say women shouldn't chase men, and that they shouldn't be upset if a guy doesn't call after sleeping with him early on.
