Rejected: 5 Reasons Why She Blew You Off

Even if you've only invested thirty seconds of your life making significant eye contact with someone you don't even know, it still stings to be turned down. Sometimes it stings even more, knowing that she hasn't even taken the time to get to know your truly bad qualities. You're being blown off at face-value; written off as having no potential!

Don't think that rejection is some kind of personal statement on your worthiness as a human being. Resist the urge to think you're an unlovable ogre.

It's not you, it's them, and here's why.

She's Taken

But she was flirting, I hear you say. Was she really, or was she maybe just being nice? And, hey, even if she was throwing herself at you, there's no law against a little extra-marital male manipulation. Next time, do a little homework first - "So, why isn't your boyfriend out with you tonight?" - before you put your ego on the line.

The Timing Sucks

We're all entitled to our bad moods and bad days. Maybe she got screamed at by her boss, is having a "fat day," or is just irritated that yours is the sixth unwanted advance she's had to fend off tonight. In the words of the Magic Eight Ball, try again later.

Your Technique Needs Improvement

Any chance you're being creepy or a pest? Have you been leering? Buying her stiff drinks she doesn't want? Slipping an arm around her waist while she chokes on the overpowering stench of your bad cologne? If these are ringing any bells, you need to fix up your pick-up techniques before being allowed back in public.

She's Been Hurt

Listen for the key words "taking a break from dating" or "focusing on me/my career right now." For whatever reason - recovery from a bad breakup, general dissatisfaction with dating, trying to make partner at her law firm - you are not welcome here right now.

She's Just Not Interested

She's sure you're a swell guy and all, but she's just not attracted to blonds, investment bankers, or base jumpers, or whatever you are. Fortunately, there are plenty of chicks who are. Go hit on one of them.
