In the world of Dating Suburban, you need to become accustomed to constant rejection. Kind of like actors who work as waiters for 20 years, waiting tables and waiting to be selected for the 5-minute role of passerby in a movie. Dating is the same way, lots of waiting for a small victory. A victory that might never come. Is it even worthwhile? You tell me.
Since I have vast experience being rejected, I’d like to share with you some of the most popular rejection lines in Dating Suburban history. If you have not yet used these yourself, give them a try!
A few have made me cry. Some make me mad. Really mad. A couple were laughable. But only in hindsight. Mostly, I just feel utterly rejected!
First, there are the numerous forms of “It’s not you ; it’s all me.”
Then, there’s the “It’s all you (you’re full of irreparable flaws and have caused every problem in this relationship) and I’m perfect, so I deserve better than you. Someone who treats me right.”
I have extensive experience in both styles of rejection.
“I’m really messed up in the head.”
OK, thanks for letting me know now. You saved me the mental institution bill.
“I don’t date women from work.”
I’ve gone out with at least 100 women from my office, but now that you’ve come along, I’ve changed my policy. OK, got that. I work in policy change management in my corporate job, so I understand the type.
“I’m not over my marriage.”
Yes, not now, but when you meet the next woman it’s amazing how quickly you’ll get over it.
What are some rejection lines that have been used on you? Can I borrow them?
|Still bloodied & waiting in line to get rejected, again.|
But still smiling, and dating...
