Relationship and Dating Advice for Finding Love Online

On Rejection, Dating and Relationships

You cannot always win in dating and relationships and you know that. But every time you get rejected, a little bit of your confidence gets chipped away until such time that you have none left. What you then do is sit around waiting for things to happen to you. You're just going to get rejected again if you make another attempt, so why even try?

This is the wrong tack to take when it comes to rejection in dating and relationships. Isn't there a commonsensical piece of advice that says you have to get back up whenever you fall down? Why not get back up, bruised ego and all, whenever you get rejected?

Rejection can be traumatic, yes. But even trauma patients get better. When you encounter rejection in dating and relationships, ask yourself what went wrong. Why is that person whom you thought you had the perfect date with not returning your calls? Maybe it was that tasteless joke you cracked before dessert. Or maybe it was your continuous chatter on football, football and more football.

Rejection should be a learning experience. The next time you go out on a date, you'll know better than to crack stupid jokes or to bore your date with your incessant chatter.

Of course, it's also possible that you did nothing to merit rejection. In that case, there's nothing you can do so cut your losses and move on. You can still have the perfect date and the perfect relationship with a different person.
