What do you do when the fear of rejection never goes away?
What Girls Said 12
You don't do anything. You either sit around sulking and alone thinking that it's not worth asking that cute girl out just incase you face rejection or you swallow your insecurities and jump right in there. Rejection is part of life, not everyone likes everyone and that's the reality of it. Don't let your demons control you, what's the worst that could happen?1
Honestly, you just have to get over it, and it's easier said than done. Rejection comes from every corner of life, and the way I look at it - you either live your life in fear of rejection and die wishing you hadn't, or look back thinking, "Well, I did what a could."
Basically I drive myself crazy being afraid of dying with regret and do something stupid and get it over with.1
Everyone is scared of rejection and probably always will be.. rejection sucks rather its from a love interest, job, or people just in general. Not everyone will accept you but instead focusing on those people.. focus on the ones who already do.1
Not sure it ever goes away until you are in a committed long term relationship.
However fears are part of life. While I haven't had the fear of rejection from a partner (I'm married), I do deal with rejection from his family and mine. Potential friends also provide another way to be rejected.
While I will sometimes take a break from trying, I keep trying. Guess I'm not willing to give up.0
Just accept that rejection is normal. You won't always get what you want. Being rejected frees up your time to pursue something else.1
Everyone is afraid I'm being rejected. All the time. It's not going to go away. You just screw up the courage to proceed despite it. Courage doesn't mean not being afraid. Courage means acting despite the fear.0
You become WGTOW or MGTOW2
you buy a ranch for cats2
You have to make it go away... life doesn't happen top you, you make it happen.
You just learn to deal with it. I'm almost 30 and still have that fear. In everything. Not just when it comes to dating.0

It eventually goes away and you move on. But during the moment, you realise that rejection is part of life and just because one person dismisses your interest doesn't mean somebody else won't be interested in you. And it takes a lot of courage and a positive attitude to keep trying over and over until you succeed.0
The only way to overcome this is practice, the fear of rejection occurs only if you're new to something. You're 27, so I'm assuming that you might have done a lot of jobs, think about your first interview you were extremely nervous but when you get rejected a few times it still hurts but you know how to handle that. It is exactly the same with girls. Tip: Stop masturbating for a while.0
You learn to keep attempting even with the fear of rejection on your shoulders, until people give you chances even though you tried them out fearing rejection.0
As time has gone on, I've just given less and less of a shit, to the point where I don't even care anymore. I'm doing my own thing.0
You get up and ask her for her name. At that point you're too commited to back out. Dont think, just go ask for her name. No planning beyond that0
It'll never go away. You just need to embrace it and push through. The fear isn't the problem. It's your will.
Practice exercising your will by jumping into cold showers. No hesitating.1
That fear will never go away. But it can be managed!
If you're heading into a situation thinking you're going to be rejected, guess what will happen?
Keep things friendly and unassuming. As much as you want this one person, and present your positive traits, try to actually get to know her and see if she is right for you.
