I am not in a position to not date. I've waited too long and its now or never. But I've felt that painful sting of rejection and I want to be more prepared next time. I know it will always hurt but I want to be able to deal with it.
Can any men empathize with me, do you understand that anger and pain?
Why is it so hard to escape that feeling?

Both guys and girls, since childhood, are made to believe that women are soft, emotional and care a lot of about feelings, whereas men are supposed to be rough and tough, and its a sign of 'weakness' if they show their emotions. So while rejecting guys, girls simple assume that it isn't a big deal for the guy because he is supposed to be a robot with no emotions.
And yeah, most girls do have unrealistic standards these days, so rejection has become way too common for the guys. Can't really really help it. You have two options - either accept that it is unfortunate to be a man in this era and continue pursuing girls (with the hope that one of them will say 'y3es' at least out of mercy), or you just give up on girls altogether and realize that the presence of a girl is not necessary for a guy to be happy in his life.
I chose the latter almost 5 years ago (I'm 28 now), and I'm indeed a happy man now.2
