I feel bad for anyone who gets rejected I really do! Having that happen to me about three times so far in my life has been kinda horrible. I am usually someone who loves to win and whenever I lose I have those moments stick with me the longest. Those three girls in my mind have never gone away as I am constantly thinking of what I did to deserve that. It does kinda suck and the hardest part about it is moving on! Even being more famous now I have a fear of jumping into asking someone out because I don't want to experience rejection ever again!
On SOME level? 5 or more. At my age, if I hadn't been rejected at least that many times then that'd mean I wasn't taking enough shots, haha. But I mean, I'm counting girls I went up and tried to strike up conversations with who just eventually wandered off, very few have been rude, in-so-many-words rejections, and those came when I was a kid. At your age, I wouldn't sweat it at all, man, keep plugging away👍 All part of the game. www.olin.edu/sites/default/files/gretzkyscott.jpg
I've already lost the count. And to be honest, I think I've never had an official "date" so far. Just hanging out with a girl that thought "hey, free meal :)", only to find weeks later that she's with another guy.
It sucks. And it's making me thing that perhaps love isn't for everybody. But then again, what else you can do when you think you've done everything? At least I try to think that I gave them some fun time or stuff like that. It helps sometimes but not always.
You have to define it better. If some stranger won't dance with you at a club or party, is that a rejection? If they reject you because they are taken, or gay? Unless you clarify a count is meaningless.
