Rejection blows. It’s the worst.
Being denied comes with a particular sting that sticks until someone else comes along to ease the pain. The Internet can be a very impersonal space where rejection is simply part and parcel of the process towards finding love or casual sex. You will send messages that won’t get responses, and you will meet people who might flake at the last minute. This happens. But there are ways to cope and to buffer yourself from rejection. It’s how well you play the game.
Here are just a few of our most coveted tips for handling rejection:
Don’t take it personally: If you thought the first date was a smashing hit but haven’t heard from them since, then you’re probably feeling denied. If you’re using a hookup site to meet others, remember that there are always plenty of ducks in the pond. Each person has their reasons for not returning calls – maybe their ex came back? Maybe they met someone else? Maybe a car hit them? (We hope not). You just never know so don’t take it personally or let it bring you down.
Learn from your mistakes: Take some time to reflect on the reasons why you’re being rejected (if it’s happening often). Are you putting thought into your introductory messages? Are you being charming, funny or witty? Are you reading advice columns and going into dates feeling prepared and confident? Review your interactions, and try playing around with different approaches to see what works best.
Remember that you’re awesome: If you’re rejected, then it’s important to remember the following phrase, “It’s their loss”. You are amazing, unique and wonderful. You have a lot to offer regardless of whether you’re looking for sex or a relationship. Rejection is simply part of life; it’s how you handle it that counts. Keep your dignity in tact, and always hold that head up high.
