    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...

    Almost a year ago, I was interested in

    that guy because I thought he was kind, smart and funny. I asked him first and he rejected me quite coldly. I'm so embarrassed even to this day... I kind of knew he'd say no but I didn't imagine that it would be so embarrassing to be rejected. But I'm glad that I did it. I...

    Reject On The Rocks

    I met him on match.com. After a brief exchange of text messages and phone calls we decided to meet for lunch. I threw on something tight and opted for high heels and red lipstick; seductress 101. I checked myself one last time in the mirror. Bingo! As I walked in to the...

    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...

    Often Actually

    I'm rejected pretty much every time I form a crush on someone. lol There has only been one instance in which I told someone I liked them and they liked me back. I'm just not an attractive person, so I usually keep it to myself when I like someone. Saves everyone the trouble and...

    I ...Hate You, But I Love You

    First time we met was random. Like most things in life. Two particles randomly collided once and universe was born. Although to be fair, when we met it was nothing as grand as that. I happened to be high as well. But that's me; high and low as far back as I can remember...

    who I really liked and wanted to be with. I've always wanted to find a boyfriend. I have a low self-esteem and not being able to find one has always made me feel unwanted. I saw him in-between classes during school and had to know what his name was. After I found out who he was...

    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...

    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.

    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.

    who was one of my friends (we didn't get to hang out a lot though) for most of High School. I finally got the courage to ask her to homecoming and she said no. No reason, just no. Then around Prom I found out that she had a boyfriend... and we had barely talked for months after...

    I'm used to rejection, so it shouldn't be a big deal for me, but this time was different. I was rejected, but I wasn't even trying to ask her out. We share a mutual friend, and I went to talk to her on Facebook. Suddenly she tells me that she's not looking for a relationship...
