Online Rejection

You’ve told HotStallion99 that you think his profile is clever and his picture portrays him as pensive, yet strong. You’ve “winked,” “wooed,” and tried every other attention-getting function of the online dating site, but he still hasn’t responded. That type of treatment has the same name online as it does in the real world: Rejection. And although it might be on a smaller scale, you still might have some of the same feelings as if it were with someone you’ve actually met.

This article published on the online news site, American Chronicle, isn’t going to win a Pullitzer any time soon, but it brings up a few good points. For starters, you can’t feel too bad about being rejected by someone you’ve never met. All they really know is that you’re five feet tall and really enjoy listening to Queen. Next, if you never went on any real dates with HotStallion99, that means you didn’t have to waste time or money getting to know them. Finally, as with any rejection, use it as an opportunity to figure out how you can improve your online dating chances the next time around. [American Chronicle]
