    I actively reject people

    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...

    Bad Camping Trip/ruined Friendship

    At some point or another we've all been rejected & have rejected someone. It is just the way things flow we cannot change the way others feel or the way we feel. Most recently on a camping trip I rejected my friend Ramon. He is real nice & also not bad on the looks. I...

    If There Isn't Chemistry

    I don't have offers flooding my doorstep or anything, but I have turned down a few people in my life. If there isn't chemistry there, or if I just know that logically or emotionally it isn't a good idea to date a particular person, I will be honest with them and let them know...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    I Wish Things Were Different

    I met him in one of my classes, and we hit it off rather quickly. Soon enough, we were dating, and things were going great. I really liked him. He shared my sense of humor, we had intersecting world views with some minor differences, but nothing major. We didn't share the same...

    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.

    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...
