Dating fears rejection
Rejection plays a big part in all walks of life and online dating, like every other relationship, isn’t all flowers and butterflies all of the time.
Yet, like many before me have said, it isn’t the rejection you should focus on, but the way you deal with it and rebound.
It seems that the feeling of rejection and the emotional pain it causes is enough to fog rational thinking and actually reduce a person’s IQ, especially when it comes to short-term memory tasks and particularly decision-making.
An automatic reaction to rejection is to question yourself, take the pain and force it inwards, which results in your self-esteem and ultimately your confidence taking a knock.
Rejection fuels deeper thinking and can push you further down the scale of depression.
If you are new to online dating, being aware of rejection will help you in the process.
Don’t let the fear of rejection hamper your activity in dating or life in general but accept that rejection is just a fact of life.
