I never really take rejection personally. Yeah it sucks sometimes but at least you tried and now you know and can move on and keep looking. And I never hold a grudge against a girl if she rejects me because I've rejected my fair share of girls and I never did it out of spite. I wasn't attracted to them and told them the truth. So I can appreciate honestly when it comes to rejection. I usually get over it right away or 1-2 days if I really liked her and had my hopes up.

I'm at a point where I prefer to get it over with and find out ASAP rather than days of "not knowing." I feel like the longer a person's in the "not knowing where we are" phase of things, the worse that rejection hits them. This is because instead of any possible hopes building up for let's say... 1 day, people build up their hopes for weeks and even months just to get a no. The longer people hold onto their social anxiety, the more that rejection's going to hit them.
Not only that, but I find that people (men and women!) are very looks based and overlooking common interests. Like, I'll try and find a gym partner as a way to at least do something together. It's low/no cost, it's active, and even if it doesn't go well, something got done for the day. Plus I am surprised that nobody thinks of asking the girl they were interested in if they have any friends maybe looking for someone to meet up with. Networking is not exclusive to job interviews after all. Just because interest was shown doesn't mean you're absolutely obsessed with the person (at least I would hope not!). People need to stop being afraid to show that they are looking for a date. The big reason people don't ask is because people are constantly hiding the fact that they are single.2
