Romantic rejection is not easy to handle for a lot of people. However, rejection at the hands of someone you like is a part and parcel of dating. It is also something that helps you grow, something that helps you experience heartbreak, somethings that brings out a different side of us and teaches us something new. But when dealing with rejection doled out by someone you have a crush on or are in love with, it becomes essential to be dignified and strong. Keeping that in mind, here are a few things you can do to take rejection well.
Be graceful and dignified
As distraught as you might be feeling inside, don’t breakdown or act out in front of the person who is the object of your affection. Be courteous, graceful, and wish them well for their future endeavours. Express how warmly you felt for them and leave on a nice note. Not only does that make you a bigger person but they will remember you as someone who handled rejection like a mature person.
Cut off for a while
That’s right, this step is essential not only for those who had a solid relationship and broke up. Even when you like someone and they don’t reciprocate your feelings, you are supposed to take a break from them to grieve in peace and get over your feelings.
Don’t take it personally
This is crucial: no matter what happens, you have to remember that someone turning you down is not a commentary on you, how you are or your personality. It is just something that they as an individual can’t relate to or reciprocate because they might be looking for something else in a partner.
