Rejection is hard because attached with it is a perception (sometimes, a reality, but not always) of denial to one's character. When someone rejects you, you feel as if they are denying who you are or that your credibility is insufficient to their standards.
Rather, see it as an incompatibility instead of a flaw of character (interpersonal and character development is for you to work on by yourself, not for others to pick on).
It's going to hurt no matter what, but at least you can control your perception and take action to building yourself up instead of tearing yourself down. Sometimes weird is good - interpret it as someone different, non-conforming to the status quo - maybe you just removed a small group of guys that couldn't comprehend the amazing things you have to offer. Why have a bunch of people like you when you can have a few that really care and that one guy that will fall in love with you for simply you?
Time is a powerful element - be patient and build up yourself (don't fake it and put on masks to fit in, make your reality someone else's and draw people to your awesomeness).
You're not alone on this. If people were more honest and considerate, things would go smoother and better for both parties involved. Yet, we deal with this element of rejection. Think of it this way - every rejection tries to push you back from being you - use it as a stepping stone for being and building a stronger, better, and even more compassionate version of you.
Good luck on your endeavors and stay strong.
I struggled with this myself around that age. Things that i did i wouldn't suggest anyone else try, but I'm going to attempt at relaying the messages i feel were important.
Remember to be yourself. Get used to meeting people as yourself instead of what you may think they want to meet.
Without extremes *** the worst the average person is going to say is "No." It may be more hash sounding but realistically unless they are someone you all ready have a friendship with you will probably never run into them again. So forget about it, because they did.
Remember your own self worth. The most important. Remind yourself that they are doing you a favor by rejecting. It is a lot better than "yes" for the wrong reason.

Omg. This was also my nickname!! I've always struggled with the same kind of stuff. Personally, I just had to wait for someone to appreciate my quirkiness and let me be myself. My best advice is to smile more. My husband always wishes I was happier.
