One thing to remember? Don't take it personally. This isn't about you — it's about them.
Maybe you’ve had an unrequited crush on a guy who doesn’t like you back, or had a fling fizzle out into nothingness. Or maybe the guy you’ve been dating gave you the slow fade, and just kind of disappeared. Whatever the case, it totally sucks to get rejected, especially when you see a relationship as having a lot of potential. Why doesn’t he like me the way I like him, you wonder? How come he doesn’t see how great we’d be together?
It's easy to feel pretty let down when someone you like doesn't like you back, but it's not the end of the world, we promise. And there are little things you can do to make it a bit easier on yourself.
Don't take it personally
As crazy as that might sound, remember that getting rejection often has very little to do with you and much more to do with where the other person is in their life. Maybe your crush isn't over their ex, or is legitimately interested in someone else. That isn't about you — it's about them. So as much as you might want to personalize the rejection, remember that a relationship requires two people to be invested, and you can only do your part.
