About a year and some change ago I experienced my first real rejection. I've been rejected by girls in the past, but it was more like "I have a bf" or "I like you, but I don't wanna ruin the friendship". Because of that it didn't hurt quite like the one a year ago did. While she did her best to be nice, she ended up hurting me real bad because she made me feel not good enough for her. I could've been too sensitive and overeacted but that's just how it happened. It took me awhile to get over her and I couldn't even have substantial feelings for anyone else, not because I was afraid of another rejection, but because I just emotionally and physically couldnt. Looking back I feel as if I learned some things from the experience like seeing her flaws, more people out there to meet, etc. But I feel like I didn't learn enough (not necessarily see it as a bad thing). So I ask you: How did you handle and learned from your first substantial rejection?

4 years ago I got in a relationship with a guy, I fell in love and everything was great. It was my first true love and the longest relationship. We were together for 3 years, planning to get married. We never fought, we were very compatible and he seemed really happy and satisfied with me, he never complained about anything and neither did I. Then just one day, out of the blue, he tells me that he doesn't think that he loves me anymore, that he doesn't feel the spark and the excitement anymore, that he is curious about others and that I'm not the one. So he just dumped me. Just like that. Not red flags no nothing. It was the biggest slap in my face, the whole conversation lasted for like 10 mins top. From 3 years to 10 mins and everything changed. He didn't even apologized. What can I say... it's been a year now and I still pretty messed up. Haven't learned anything from it. Didn't gained any experience but pain and humiliation. It feels like all of it was pointless.0THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE

Yeah, a damaged chick rejected me because she was looking for 9s and 10s to date, while I was only a 5 in her books. It did hurt a bit at that time, but I realised that I dodged a bullet because she had way too many issues.0THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE
