I have often heard people say something along the lines of "rejection isn't personal," or "don't take it personally if someone rejects you."
I've always thought this was rather odd, as I can see few things more personal than rejection. Now because it's personal doesn't mean it's bad, but I find it hard to see how not liking a person romantically or otherwise isn't personal.
However, I could be wrong, so I'm open to hearing what y'all have to say about it.

Yeah it's personal to a degree but I mostly think of it in terms of compatibility. If a woman rejects me it doesn't mean that I'm not worthwhile or that I'm not good enough or anything it just means that's she's into different qualities than mine. I'm no less of a person for getting rejected and my self worth is still just as high because I know that I will find a woman who is into the qualities that I possess. People like to think they're not good enough instead of realizing that we are all attracted to different things and these things aren't always better or worse than other things. It's like people think there's a universal code for attraction and if someone rejects you then you're lacking completely as a human being which I don't think is true in my experience.0
