    A Couple Times

    Both were in high school, I felt terrible about it both times. I don't like hurting people. But I've also dated someone just because I didn't want to reject them, and that always turns out worse. So... yeah.

    A Few Times

    I have rejected one guy, and completely broken his heart. I felt bad about it, but he just wasn't my type. Sometimes you just have to say no. He hated me for a while, but it didn't phase me. Rejection is just necessary sometimes.

    Friends can make things awkward for me..

    In high school, I had a lot of guy friends that I thought nothing more of than just friends. But they can make it so awkward for me by trying to hint at liking me, and even though I ignore their advances, they continue to be aggressive, and this leads to them asking me on dates...

    Weird, Heartbreaking Experience

    It started at a concert at school where I was hanging out with a friend that used to go to the same school as I did, but has left two years ago. I hadnt seen her for a long time, so we had quite a lot to talk about. We were just walking around a bit when we walked into a few old...

    I Rejected Someone... Although I Don't Blame Myself

    My problem is, the people who like me are never people I like back. Not in 'that way.' Although a great deal of the time I feel like guys only want to be with you because you're a girl. That may sound stupid, and/or confusing but let me explain what I mean. Say you're...

    He loves me; he has for years.

    I've rejected this love and yet he has remained by my side – my friend, my support. He’s seen my heart break with other guys; he’s held me during the storms of my life and celebrated my joys (and I his, I truly hope). I think he understands me better than I understand...

    I really don't know what to feel now.

    I know it hurts to be rejected but i always keep on rejecting people. Every time i get emotionally attached to a person all i did is to always put an end to it even if theres no problem of what we have, who we are, what we did. I guess im just afraid to get hurt in the end...

    It Hurt Me More!

    I'm not very good at rejecting someone, and someone that's been good to me makes it very difficult.  This was someone that I ADORE but could never see myself being intimate with.  I was very nice and explained that I didn't think that we would be a good match and why...

    Yeah!!! ...

    Yeah!!! when i was in my teens, i did many a time, especially if i didn't fancy a fella! i wouldn't go out with him. When your young i don't think you realise, untill you get older, and then when you think back you think, ''ah'' he was ''cute'' after all.

    and i dont feel regretful at all. Usually it occurs because who they are does not line up with who i am, or who i want to be. Saying no is perfectly okay , even if that person is well intended... Unless you're a d-bag , in which case... Stop being such a d-bag. I recently...
