Dating: Rejection and big egos

Have you ever been out somewhere, minding your own business, and you get approached – when you really don’t want to be? Things can get kind of awkward but it only gets worse when someone’s massive ego gets bruised and they can’t handle it.

In the last few days, I have heard disturbing stories of people completely losing their cool when they get turned down. It’s like they go from sweet talk to rage speak in sixty seconds! Whatever happened to bowing out gracefully or going away quietly?

Of course, letting someone down should be done in a gentle manner, but why do you think some people don’t just move on? What do you do if things escalate?

What is the best way to say you are not interested in someone?

The best way? All you can offer is, NOT INTERESTED! A man wanting closure or an understanding IS ABSOLUTELY THE WORST. Somehow, it doesn’t wear as well as a woman needing closure. Please move on.

If someone has an ego problem, there is no best way. If they can’t handle rejection, there is nothing you can do to make it easy for them.

Everyone experiences rejection at some point. How you deal and handle shows how well you cope. Grace and class makes the release much easier.

Good day!

if grace and class made it easier, then you wouldn’t need closure. The only way to get real “closure” from any situation is to move on with your life.

Single some folks can’t take/handle no as an answer. When you give them a firm no it triggers something that causes them to react irresponsibly.

Grace and class is not needed exclusively for relationships, closure, etc. If you have, you have it. And possessing such will guide you, no mater the situation. Yes, you do need it to guide you for gracefully moving on. Otherwise, you’re likely to be a BOOB about it.

As much as it is going to be a man bashing contest today,given the tilt of the topic,it’s actually harder to bench a chic when a guy wants to move on!

Chics will want to stuck to you like a poisnous leach,wanting explanations and what not when All u want is to move on. It can be stressful.

Nevernind the slash tires and break windows brigade! :lol: I tell ya!

U want to dwell on a guy that gives u grief for two minutes? Go ahead!

But think about the heifer that won’t move on after you tell them its over. She is going to call u..wait for u at ur crib,knock on ur for ko ko ko ko louder..ring ur bell until the battery dies..tell All ur friends about it to corral support for herself…u name it!

Good morning,

If some dude approaches me (stranger) and I tell him i’m not interested, what the hell kind of closure am I supposed to be giving him exactly? I could see if we had been hanging out for a while or something. That automatically makes me think of them being cuckoo.

As much as it is going to be a man bashing contest today,given the tilt of the topic,it’s actually harder to bench a chic when a guy wants to move on!

Chics will want to stuck to you like a poisnous leach,wanting explanations and what not when All u want is to move on

If you know you really aren’t feeling a chick but yet has been chilling with her, plunging her punani and what not, then yeah she’s going to want to know what happened/changed. The best way to avoid said situation is to not get involved in any shape, form or fashion that resembles you being into her, at all. If you like her as a friend, then your ACTIONS should mimick one of FRIENDSHIP…not Fugging Friends, not CUTbuddies, not a faux-relationship. Folks always talk about how women are so emotional, can’t handle a fugg buddy courtship because we always want more…well take that same ideal and keep your wang to yourself or go fugg another dude who CAN be emotionally detached all for the sake of a good fugg session.

ex – the thing is that this is one of those double standards that leans in a woman’s favor. no it’s not a good look for a woman to be clingy and not know how to let go but it’s an even worse look when a man is clingy and doesn’t know how to let go.

lily – re hanging on to ankles. lol. I remember one of my uncle’s baby momma’s used to hide his shoes or keys or whatever to try to keep him from leaving her house.

Morning,

I agree with Lily (and caracked up), I agree with Lady’s –> crazy doesn’t discriminate and all of Slim’s post.

Both men and women alike are dished a heaping of rejection and both men and women alike should know how to handle. It’s one thing if we chatted it up, maybe hung out a time or two, feeling our way and it’s a no go. If you can’t get over that, your crazies are peeking out. I agree, it’s another thing to “act” like you’re in a relationship, consummate, spend time together and then when you’re (man or woman), you get ghost. No, no one owes anyone anything but don’t act surprised if s/he’s hiding in the bushes waiting for you. YOU BROUGHT IT ON YOURSELF….lololol

I say be respectful and give the person their walking papers, at least. Don’t use people like receptacles and think your actions are okay. Be decent and wo/man up and say the needful.

Black, you know we grew up in an era where rejection was learned early on in life, if you weren’t good enough you didn’t make the team, if you failed at school it was your fault. It taught us two things, if we want to get better at life we had to try harder, and the rejection from one thing wasn’t the end of the world. Now people are so used to making the team, or if it’s not right it’s not their fault. Thus whether it’s a firm no, or a subtle no, most of the time you will probably get the same reaction from someone who just can’t handle it.

Ex those are the chics that need that “closure”, and no matter what you tell them, until you tell them what they want to hear, they will never get it. And most of the time they don’t even know what they want to hear.

I can remember having gfs that would swear a dude off all the while whistling Dixie “as if” (lol), but busy planning payback and getback. IMO, that only meant that person still wasnt “over it.” If you find yourself having thoughts of wanting to put sugar in his/her tank, badmouthing him/her to your boys or gfs, making attempts to bring the person down or attempts to make him/her look bad, you ain’t over it…lol Unless you’ve totally taken your hands all the way off, whether concealed or not, you’re still hanging on. Letting go means letting go…all the way.

On Topic~ Women usually become slingers AFTER there is a relationship/FWB/etc. That is a different kind of rejection. It seems to me that MIA is talking about that “He approaches you in a bar and you’re not interested so you give him the brush off and he goes atomic”. I saw this happen at Freaknic of ‘93 witha well known rapper at the time. It is NOT a good look. And generally, it tends to be men that want to trash you when you don’t field their passes. Women move on. IJS…

@BF: Seeing your posts re: the towers takes me back to those moments. I remember I was at my desk and a co-worker came by and said, “My wife just called and said an airplane hit the World Trade Center.” I remember thinking he meant a “Cessna” type plane. Then, he came running down the hall, “It just happened again!” and we went in search of a TV. I remember sitting on the floor, watching the coverage and just crying….I could not wrap my mind around this happening in America.

Good Morning All!

Topic: It is just a product of the times where everybody gets a trophy for just showing up. I read something where a district in Massachusetts was considering dropping the Honor Roll because of complaints of how the kid’s who did not make it felt. There isn’t much of a tolerance for handling disappointment. We wonder why people have a sense of entitlement. This affects all aspects of life including relationships.

You can always tell them like it is because you don’t owe them an explanation, and keep it moving. If they get hostile, it is easier to buy another can of pepper spray than it is to babysit someone because you don’t have the stones to tell them to kick rocks.

Off topic: One of my favorite Freaknic memories came in the 1993 Freaknic, Chilling with some friends at Piedmont Park and spotting Michigan Fab Fiver Chris Webber. Then, seeing people walking by throwing up the “Time Out” sign as the passed him. Even though I rooted for Michigan against UNC, that makes me chuckle to this day. Well, he knows that people watched the game.

If I was the losing team, that would just piss me off. Kind of like the Savannah St. game being called in the 3rd.

Morning Gang!

9-11-2001 – I was going to meet with my dad’s accountant, so I was going to go into work a little late. I had the tv on, gathering papers for the meeting and was yacking on the phone with one of my friends. I was not really paying attention to the tv, so when I glanced up and saw the replay of the plane hitting the tower, I seriously thought there was some movie on, not real life! My friend on the phone asked if I had the tv on and what was happening. I stopped and listened to Katie Couric and realized what was happening. I got off the phone with her & called to check my work voicemail. There were about 12 messages! I called my boss and she said maybe I should come on in to support my team. Cancelled the meeting and came in. I worked near the airport at the time, in fact our building overlooked the Delta hanger. It was completely EERY seeing all those planes grounded and the signs over the highway saying “National Emergency, all flights cancelled”! One of my employees was from NY and had gone home to get word about her cousin, who worked in one of the towers. Another of my employees also had a cousin working in the towers who later got word the cousin died. I pulled up this newpaper online, this was before the blog, and all I got was a white screen with – WTC ATTACKED in big black letters – that’s all!!

It was a scary day!

On topic – I though the topic was like Comon said – folks that can’t take initial rejection upon approaching someone. There have always been crazies and always will be, but I agree about this new breed of folk that cannot deal with the realities of life – which rejection is one of them and something we will all experience. Get over it, I said no thank you nicely, now keep it moving or I’ll have to call somebody!

One other friend was supposed to be at work when it happened, but she stopped to vote (i think that was an election day for the city) and was late to work. Otherwise, she would have been in the second building that was hit.

That was to let us know not to be full of ourselves and realize we would have to work hard to be better than the rest. Nobody is going to give you anything cause you’re cute and there are no shortcuts. I thank my parents for raising us to be able to deal with the REAL WORLD while at the same time building our self-esteem. It is possible, but alot of these parents don’t seem to be able to swing it. I feel sorry for the kids when they get out and realize nobody thinks they are all that but their mama & daddy. Out here, you are just a small fish in a big pond and you gotta pay your dues.

Life works the same for all of us. Again, you have your highs and your lows, death and life, the good and the bad. What you cannot do though is measure mine to yours or vice versa. And you cannot assume because you can’t see over into someone else’s yard that they’re getting a better deal. You want it, you work to get it. It’s not unfair just because life didn’t dump what you want in your lap. That’s just like sometimes it’s sunny and sometimes there’s rain. You don’t ever see one individual walking around with a small cloud over their head. Each individual’s outlook makes the real difference. If I can smile when the sun is shining, I can smile when it rains. If I chose not to, then that’s me. But without rain, you wouldn’t appreciate the sun. Everyone gets a heaping of both.

And many many many times, what people won’t admit is what you’re getting is often the outcome of a choice or decision you made. Life is not going to go opposite of that. You made a bad decision but reap good. Nope. You make a bad decision, then make good on it and turn it around yourself. Not that it’s unfair though.

Nothing really to add to the topic. Ya’ll got it pretty much covered.

I’ll never forget 11 years ago coming into work and people talking about it. We took turns going up stairs to watch the tv in the break room. When I went up there, I saw the second plane hit. It about made me sick to watch it. I work at a credit union and one of our offices is in the federal building downtown. They closed the building and my bosses decided to just close all of our locations at 1:00 that day. I remember trying to get ahold of my dad and couldn’t get the cell phone to work for a while. He works in construction and is always all over town…I was scared that he would be near the federal buildings and be in danger. I cried when I finally got in touch with him. It was eerie to not know exactly what was going on and if more places were in danger.

I visted Ground Zero about a year after the attack and I remember the strange feeling standing there. Everyone and everything around there was silent. It’s like I could feel the heartache and I just cried…

C~ While agree that about 2% of life is what happens to you and 99% is how you react to it, yes, there are circumstances that unfair. The 10 year old who loses his mother to cancer. Unfair. The woman whose child got shot while she was driving on the interstate. Unfair. The mom who loses her daughter/son to childhood illness or SIDS. Unfair. So, yeah, life can deal you some lemons, but you are correct that your attitude is the game changer whether for the positive or the negative.

Part of that “unfairness” of life is understanding that everything is not going to be “straight across the board” for everyone. Yes, you might slave away to move up in the company, but see Joe over there that just started get promoted quicker cause he goes to the same church as the boss and is good friends with him. It sucks, but I don’t knock anyone for having a hookup or inside track cause I sure would take advantage of it if I had it. Sometimes it’s who you know. All I can do is try to cultivate some contacts of my own and be ready/prepared when my turn comes!

CC – I disagree. Well, I believe God (yep I said it), runs the world and allows certain things to be. Jut because he won’t give you an explanation of why, is not unfair. If you don’t know the life of the 10 year old and how it’s going to play out, then you can’t say it’s unfair. I have an aunt that lost her mother at 9. Now, from what I hear the family was straight hulagins. She ended up being raised in a better environment, went on to become the first lady at her church, raised two beautiful children. Have outlived her husband, worked all her life taking care of kids that went without. Has a list every Christmas and beginning of school, with children out of single parent homes where she purchases their gifts. So, unless you can predict and say WHY it’s unfair, you can’t call it that. Each of us will lose out mother. If you can deal with it, grieve, be blessed by the years you had and move on, then why can’t I?

I agree with your 11:12. As a football player, we did a lot of community service. Going into children hospital and seeing what many kid’s face through no fault of their own. Many have that great attitude and live each day to fullest, but their little bodies can only handle so much. To this day, I still find ways to give the Camp Twin Lakes and The Make A Wish Foundations.

That more than anything skews me away from the existence of fairness. It just my opinion though.

And I believe losing a mother at 9 is just as tragic as losing a mother at 49. The lady I mentioned is now being cared for by her daughter and lovingly too, because that’s what she put out in her life. I believe losing her mother afforded her a better opportunity, if you will to serve and give back. Now, only God in heaven knows how she would have turned out staying in the environment she was born in. I’d say she’s lived a beautiful life.

Cosign on BF’s 11:16. Those stories broke my heart.

On 9/11/2001 I had just dropped my son to daycare and was headed to the house to get ready for work when I heard that a plane had “accidentially” crashed into the WTC. When I got home, I urned on the news and was watching the coverage when the second plane hit the towers. I remember thinking to myself “Do they film the towers all the time that they were able to catch an accidental crash on tape?!” Then, I realized that it was no accident and we were under attack. Called out, stayed home (strangely enough with the then boyfriend who is now the hubby) and we watched the footae all day. I have a a friend whose mother worked in the towers and survived. To this day she will not talk about what happened there. I also had family friends who were killed in the attacks. I am like PG’s wife; I have been back to NY several times since the attacks, but I just can’t bring myself to go to Ground Zero. Too much heartbreak.

C~ Yes, losing amother at any age is traumatic, but when I use the word unfair that it what losing amother as a child is by the very definition of the word. I’m not talking about the hooligan mother/family. I’m talking about the mom that takes time with you and kisses your boo boos. When you lose a child to a disease like leukemia and then you are also left toting the enormous medical bills that came with the illness that is unfair.

un·fair/ˌənˈfe(ə)r/Adjective:
1.Not based on or behaving according to the principles of equality and justice.
2.Unkind, inconsiderate, or unreasonable

So, yes, life IS unfair, but as i said earlier, it is unfair for everyone, so I guess that makes it fair. I don’t disagree with the “into every life some rain must fall” doctrine. And I wholeheartedly agree that one’s reaction to things can be a game changer, but by it’s definition it is still unfair.

In my Luau, the head was on it. I am not sure about the innerds, though. They may clean them out first. I didn’t witness that part of the prep.

In my “in the country experiences, Ga version”, My grandma and aunts used to take out the kidneys, chitterlings (chitlins’), and other organs before my grandpa would put the pig in the ground amd roast it. The head was left on then, too. I was extremely close to this prep and saw (and smelled) it first hand.

The banana joke was very cute.

Here’s another for you (please remember that I am a PK…)

Jesus and Moses were playing golf. They come to a hole with a long fairway with a big lake in the middle and the green is on the other side. Right as they are about to tee off, a little old man walks up and says “Can I play through with you guys?” Jesus says, “Sure!”

So, Jesus tees off first and right before his ball can land in the water, it rolls across the surface up onto the green for a hole in one. The little old man scratches his head and says “I’m not sure if I can play with you fellas…” Jesus says “Sure you can! It will be okay!”

Next, Moses tees off. Right before his ball can land in the water, the waters part and the ball rolls across the dry lake bed up onto the green for a hole in one.

Now, the little old man is in shock. He says “I’m really not sure tat I can hang with you guys to play through.” But Moses says” Sure you can! Go ahead and tee off!”

So the little old man tees off and right before his ball can land in the water a fish jumps up and knocks the ball into the air where a bird catches it and drops it on the gree. A squirrel runs out and pushes the ball into the hole for a hole in one.

Jesus turns around and starts shaking his head and says “Come on, Pop, let’s play some real golf…”
