QUESTION: wow, I got rejected for the first time, feel like a worthless idiot.
Have you ever gotten rejected in UW? When/where/how was it, and what setting?
How did you take it, how did she say it?

  1. I'm a girl, I personally never tried to pick-up so I never been rejected. On the flip side, I always let guys down really easy though.

    "I'm too busy with work/school/life"
    "I've been spoken for"

  2. I asked some girl out on the last day of class first semester first year. The conversation leading up to it was painfully awkward for all involved. Oh well!

    In retrospect I now feel it is silly to just ask someone out on the spot without having built any kind of rapport or familiarity whatsoever beforehand.

    1. I don't know where you're from #2, but where I'm from, Planet Earth, that second paragraph goes without saying...

    2. "Hey, I've seen you around a few times, want to grab a coffee sometime?" is not a rapport and yet happens all the time. Be careful being a dick, you look like twice the ass if you're wrong.

  3. Don't feel bad about being rejected! It happens to everyone from time to time and it doesn't mean that you're undesirable, it just means you aren't a good match for the person who turned you down.

  4. I don't know if I have been truly rejected too many times. I don't count that they are already seeing someone a true rejection, its kind of like applying for a job when there is no position to fill. I was friendzoned hard once, but it lead to a great friendship that I am glad I have. No feelings anymore, and we are actually good friends.

  5. I was rejected this term. I don't want to give too many details in case she reads this. She said she was only looking for platonic relationships. It didn't feel all that great but wasn't completely unexpected either because I've been rejected in the past. Just move on.

  6. As a girl, I've recently started being straight-up and asking out guys that I'm interested in (usually met a couple times, acquaintance with mutual friend group). Been rejected/friendzoned twice already. Definitely sucks, but I got over it pretty quickly :P

  7. I am a girl, I asked a man out, he accepted, I was stood up; he then had the nerve to show up at my work place to ask me out to make up for it. HELL NO!

    1. Maybe he missed the date for a legitimate reason? It sounds like it's genuinely interested in making up for it.

  8. Your first time ever being rejected was in university? OP, I don't think you realize how good you have it.

  9. I was rejected in my early days at UW. It's actually a pretty funny story, now that I'm not so close to it, but basically he didn't like me (I'm a girl), turned out he liked a friend of mine and they started dating. I can't even explain how awful it was at first. Several years later, I wouldn't change a thing that happened. He is now one of my best friends in the world. Rejection sucks, but in reality, you don't really want to be with someone who doesn't want to be with you. Things like this are going to happen and you just have to deal with it and wait until another door opens for you. :)
