Semantics or Perspective?

So I'm reading yet another article essentially arguing the whole "He's Just Not That Into You" philosophy: If a man is sending mixed signals or you find yourself making excuses for him (he’s confused, afraid of commitment, at a bad space in his life, whatever) the idea is to cut through the crap and realize that if a (sane) man really likes you, there ain’t nothing that’s going to get in his way - thus freeing yourself up for a relationship with a man who is "into" you.

My problem with it is focus. Like most other female-oriented relationship theories, it seems completely centered on the guy: Is he "into" you or not? It's supposed to be empowering, but I'm not so sure. If a man makes excuses for not getting involved, isn't a a better phrase "He's Just Not Good Enough For You?"
