    It all started four years ago

    when this guy sat across the table from me and offered me some hummus, we hit it off right then and there. We had a good friendship, he always told me how beautiful, smart and funny I was and I believed him. We would go many places together and see many things, we even took a...

    I Wish I Knew What Was Wrong With Me.

    So, I have been rejected yet again, and this time I was actually a little more upset. I really liked this guy, and thought he liked me too. But then he gave me the old "I am too busy to hang out with you this weekend" and it continued from there. So I took the hint and gave up...

    Long Lost Love Gone Cold!

    I dated a guy about 15 years ago.   I reconnected with him through myspace last week.  Today, I noticed that he had removed me from his profile and erased all of my comments.  No explanation. We had a whirl wind romance as we were very young.  Our...

    Mixed Signals

    My last happy post was about a boy, his name is Alex and I got up my courage and asked him to homecoming. That took so much out of me, I thought that I would throw up I was so nervous. And he seemed like he was going to say yes, but he didn't. He told me no because he wanted to...

    Used To It

    I am really used to being rejected now. I get rejected by women a lot, I get rejected by employers a lot since I want a job. Rejection is a part of my life. A part of me might as well accept that I will never get a date, never get laid again, never get a girlfriend and never get...

    Bad Memories

    You grow cold when shitt like that happens.When people make it known they don't want to have anything to do with you.That happened a lot to me during middle school which is why I became like this. Which is why I am so cold, and so rude.

    Hey, I'm new on EP. I thought I wanted to share

    an experience that many people have had. I was rejected. I wasn't good enough for him and yet 2 weeks later he starts flirting with my best friend. It hurts thinking that the one person I opened up to and had feelings for, rejected me.

    Will You Dance With Me?

    I do not handle rejection all too well. When I was 15, he asked me for a dance during prom night and I went for it. I remember how awkward it was for me to try to start a conversation when he was always looking away. I remember how from then on, I got the courage to ask for his...
