I've seen them all over the place, it's actually kind of like a funny memorial in my mind now. I'm sure those in the dating scene have experienced a good amount of rejection, so we're in the same boat here. However, I would like to think we at least acted maturely in person. Behind doors, bawl your eyes out, jump in frustration, do whatever it takes to get it out of your mind.
On topic: The ones I've experienced the most (I blame this on my age where a lot of people are insecure about themselves) are on the lines of 'I don't know,' which is more annoying than telling a person straight up. I have gotten straight answers of 'No,' which saves a lot more time and is clear. The weirdest one I got was when a girl rejected me simply because I was "too tall for her." That took me off guard, but I actually laughed at that one.

My friend tried to set me up with her coworker who apparently thought I was cute. We go on a few dates and he texts me a lot. I start to like him.
It's then winter break and I go home from college. I tell my parents I'm seeing someone and they're happy for me. He texts me halfway through break, telling me that he just wants to be friends. Oh... ok www.relatably.com/.../Sad-Meme-Face-10.png2

I think I've been rejected at least several hundred times, maybe a thousand.
None of them stung because I always asked girls out before I developed any feelings before, "Hey, she's pretty." I actually got to the point where I enjoyed the whole process of chatting with a girl and asking her out even if she rejected me. I could laugh it off if they rejected me and I developed this easy-going approach to it where I could still be friends with the girl sometimes even if she rejected me and then end up asking the female friends she introduces to me out on a date the same way I asked her. :-D
The worst ones were maybe like girls saying "fuck off". One time a girl got a bouncer to try to escort me out of a bar, only the bouncer and I started joking and he gave me a high-five and gave me his number to hang out since he heard me telling the girl that she had a nice rack (I was a bit drunk) and thought it was hilarious. Then the girl kind of noticed I was getting popular with the staff and then changed her mind and started acting much more friendly towards me, so that wasn't so bad.
Half the rejections I've probably forgotten since I was often intoxicated at the time.0
