Imagine the generation of kids who competed in games where everyone was a winner. How do you think they will grow up and deal with being told no? Dealing with rejection is a part of life and a huge part of dating. There should be a reasonable amount of resilience if anyone hopes to navigate the dating scene. Not everyone handles rejection well, though.
I can remember watching a guy attempt to get a woman’s phone number. When she turned him down he went into a tirade about her looks. Suddenly her rejection instantly made her some kind of troll that he was fine with a mere 30 seconds earlier.
How do you think most people deal with being told no? In your experience, when you dump someone or shut them down, do they handle it well?
Do you think giving participation awards, sheltering kids from any kind of rejection is a smart way to teach them about the real world? What happens when they get that harsh reality check from the opposite sex?
