This may be a bit of a stupid question, but I want to see what everyone's rejection thresholds are, so to speak.
So, in your mind, what is the difference between a 'harsh' rejection and a 'soft' rejection?
Aren't all rejections inherently harsh, given that being rejected is hard on the person being rejected?

I tend to evaluate it based upon whether the rejector goes beyond what's reasonable and necessary to get the message across. Some people need a harsh rejection just to get the message. Others can be devastated by even the softest of rejections. So I think it's relative to the person being rejected, if that makes sense.2

- Showing interest then rejecting with no explanation
- Laughing at the person
- Looking at them like they're crazy
- Completing shutting them out after
- Getting upset because they won't be friends after
- Not giving them a chance to get over it (have space)
**Mocking/teasing them for doing it**
- Offering information that isn't asked for (e. g. why you don't want to date them etc)
- Constantly re-iterating that you are friend zoning them (without them making any more moves)4
