Anyone who enters the dating world is bound to encounter rejection.
Whether your online messages to dating prospects go unanswered, you have a great first date but never hear from the person again, or you get dumped after things were just starting to heat up, all rejections have one thing in common — they really hurt.
Psychologist Devon Berkheiser told INSIDER that some solid reflection may be in order after a rejection, but the key is not to go overboard and think there is anything inherently wrong with you.
, but it usually has to do with many other factors; the person we are attracted to is not in a place for a relationship, the job interviewer had too many candidates, the publisher was looking for a different kind of book," psychologist Helen Odessky told INSIDER.
There is nothing easy about getting rejected by a potential partner.
It's embarrassing, it can bruise your ego, and it's disappointing.
When you’re healthy in body, mind and spirit you attract a person with those traits.
Better still, you become attracted to YOU – and THAT is just plain irresistible!
