Did you hear the one about guy that approached a girl, then urinated on her when she brushed him off? If only this was just a bad joke! This. Really. Happened. In real life. Granted, the guy was drunk, but that is no excuse for his behavior.
Single people have to deal with rejection. It’s just a fact of dating life that you can’t get away from. How you handle the rejection shows your character and perhaps your sanity (or lack thereof). The really tough part of rejection is that our egos are bruised. We like to think that we can get who we want, when we want them. That is not reality, though.
I have had run-ins with dudes who did not handle my polite way of turning them down. It’s never a pretty scene but I try to remember that people tend to act out when they are rejected. It’s not personal.
Do you think you handle rejection well when it comes to dating? Why can’t it be a simple shoulder shrug, and then on to the next?
Why do people take rejection in dating so hard? What do you do when someone turns you down or declines your advances?
