Rejection hurts. And it fuels all sorts of emotions: anger, sadness, shame, etc. Whether it’s from a casual encounter, a first date, or a trusted lover, it never feels good. We have all shared our fair share of heartbreak. But sometimes, there are circumstances surrounding a rejection that are so embarrassing, you feel like sinking into the ground. These people decided to take to the internet to share their most harsh rejection stories. And if you think these are bad, you should see how bad some people’s first dates are.
Double Date Disaster
“My freshman year in college I went on a double date of sorts with my friend (who is very attractive), two very attractive ladies, and myself (a solid 5/10 on a good day). We went to a water park – did the slides, wave pool, lazy river, and all the good stuff. It was a fun day. Two days later, I go over to the dorm room of the young lady who was my “half” of the double date to ask her out. She. Did. Not. Remember. Who. I. Was.
“It wasn’t that there was anything wrong with me. It was that I was so forgettable that she did not claim to remember that I had been there with her. I’m a grown up and rejection is something I can handle, but this was a different level. And I came to find out that the other attractive lady didn’t exactly recognize me either. It turns out that both of the attractive ladies thought that my attractive friend was their “half” of the double date and both of them paid 100% attention to him and 0% attention to me the entire day. Nothing like finding out that you can spend 6 hours with two women and be so overshadowed by an attractive man so well that they don’t remember your name or what you look like.” – Rejection by drsameagle
