    I am so tired of being rejected.

    Sometimes I used all the rides in my metro card or I lose my metro or I don't have money and I told the woman that work in the train station how I really needed to get home and it's late. I gave her a speech and everything like I was running for president and She plainly said no...

    It just sucks when you sit there

    and dumbly flirt with someone, only to find out they are already into someone else. Guess I am always the last one to know. I have made an *** out of myself for the last time.

    I Must Be Repulsive & Unlikable No Matter What I Do

    This happens ALL the time.  I will be the only one in a group that people will not accept.  It doesn't matter that I'm nice, understanding, empathetic or a good listener, apparently I'm completely repulsive.  This is why I can't make friends.  And the more it happens, the...

    Rejection IS Personal, Whether People Want To Admit It Or Not.

    When you get rejected, a person is rejecting you. Your looks, your mannerisms, your uniqueness. You. Think about it this way. If it's not personal, why do people make up stupid excuses for why they shot you down? If it wasn't personal, there'd be total honesty all across the...

    I just feel like there's no real point to life

    anymore. If I'm going to continue to be lonely, depressed, and rejected by the world then what am I even here for? I don't know how to become pain free or even to feel like anyone truly cares about me

    I'm tired of being rejected by my husband.

    In my weakest moments he leaves me hanging, struggling to get my own footing. In our romantic life he denies me physical connection, as well as emotional. There is no shoulder to cry on or loving hand to hold for support. My heart aches. I wish he would hold me, or tell me I'm...

    This Has Been My Story For 15 Years

    Ever since I was twelve years old, I've been getting rejected by the opposite sex. I still remember my very first crush, and working up enough nerve to let him know how I felt. He ended up rejected me, and telling me to my face that I was too ugly for him. I went home crying and...

    I was like "Damn, just wow." She was perfect. Got her number, found out she's actually 2 years younger than me. I was so stressed out, it wasn't even funny. Checked out her number. Fake. How's that for an ice cold "**** you"!?
