So straight from this veteran in the dating trenches, here are four tips on handling rejection that I wish someone had told me:1. There really is a place for our brain’s sensibilities in managing dating rejection.Too often we let our sensitive, divorce-worn hearts take centre stage, when what we really need to do is assess it from a rational standpoint.
When someone rejects you it can be hard not to take it personally.
Rejection is probably the hardest part of the dating process.
It taps into our worst fears about not being good enough or that we are somehow unlovable.
It is dependent on many factors, including our personality, childhood and earliest relationships. It could be a huge blow, like a partner being unfaithful to a loved one moving out and calling off a relationship for good.
Rejection may come in the smallest of ways, from someone forgetting about an important occasions to a partner who simply falls out of love.
It’s a wonder that anyone ever finds a partner that fulfils all these criteria and when the feeling is mutual it’s a cause for celebration.
