I'm not brave enough to tell someone I like them so never been rejected

But I have rejected 4 guys and I was nice about it, I think, and told them I didn't want a relationship, so I'd rate it at like a 1 or 2. I still try to be nice to them and stay friends, idk if thats a bad thing though.

You put them in friendzone sounds like- all good but you cant give them any hope or all bets are off

why would you date a girl your not friends with at first @_@

I wouldn't, but I knew people who did. Girls they met in bars or at parties mostly. Occasionally, pretty girls they'd talked to somewhere and gotten their phone number.

I don't put myself out there.

So I avoid situations like these.

If I don't get noticed, I don't get noticed.
If I do noticed, that's fine but I'll probably end up steering attention away from me quickly afterwards. That way, I don't get rejected but I don't get accepted either.

Just don't send mixed signals.

It can be very awkward when then girl who rejected you a few months previously pounces on you while your sleeping.


*i had several female roommates with whom I had very good, but strictly platonic, relationships. Several of them would send mixed signals on occasion. It made things much more difficult for me when my wife really was trying to get me to ask her out. Think rom/com levels of denseness.

Let's just be friends.

I wanted to die.

I guess the hardest I've been rejected was when she told me "I don't want a relationship right now. I want to focus on my own life first."

I think that's good of her though. I'll admit I was a little disheartened but I don't hold it against her. We're still friends and talk quite a bit, so it's all good

Oh yeah. When I was younger, guys used to play this game where they would ask me out just for shits and giggles. In elementary, I gave a Valentine to a boy and he wouldn't even touch it. His friends threw it away right in front of me. In high school, I had a guy ask me out to homecoming as a dare. He didn't tell me it was a dare and I didn't find out until the day of the dance. Only because my friend told me that he had texted her the whole story and felt kinda bad because I was really looking forward to it. In college, I got set up by a teammate. Long story short, it wasn't good and I'm no longer friends with anyone who was involved. I've asked people out before and it was seriously public shaming. Like "omg the weird dike likes me" kind of thing. Not fun.
I'm not necessarily unattractive. I'm athletic and I have a good build. Most people just think I'm a lesbian or that I'm weird because I like sports , learning, and anime.
But yeah, because of my experiences...I'm super afraid to ask anyone out. I've been rejected and played on all levels and don't wish to repeat any of that. I'm okay with being the bro. Being friend zoned is the best because it gets rid of my anxiety. Like it takes away all my feelings of "like" and that's awesome. It's even better if I can set them up with someone else and really have no worries.

People are asses. No one deserves to be treated less than a person.

You'll find your groove, rock someone's world, and have your world rocked. I know it. And it will be worth way more than anyone's petty schemes.

BY THE WAY.... chicks who dig anime are freaking awesome. How could anyone pass that up?!?!?

Thought I would add this, out of fear of being unnecessarily rejected. Totally wasn't hitting on you. I am married.

She doesn't like anime, but we're working through it.

HUmmmmm....
1 to 8 . . . that's been my range....
At least I was never slapped just for asking a girl to dance. He was a friend of mine, pretty chunky but he wasn't even being rude. The girl was kind of good looking but most everyone that knew her thought of her as a giant cu#t . . . even her friends...

Where would "friendzoning" someone fall on the scale?

No matter how gentle or nasty a person is, it comes down to how YOU receive it and what YOU do afterwards.

Rejection come more often than one realize. I had to tell my sister that I didn't want to go out because I am tired, but I am sure that is not the type of rejection you mean. Point is it is a part of life, and while I may not be a "happy-go-lucky" person, I am relaxed, happy/content, and hold no grudges, because life happens rather you want it too or not. I have always been the type who could communicate with an ex and we joke and laugh as the friends we probably should of stayed...

Or maybe it is the maturity of one who has lost a parent too early in life so very few things actually hurt or bother me deeply.

I've been rejected three times, all taken very well. The first 2 times were in junior high, so it's kind of hard for me to write about it seriously. I was just a kid, you know? But they were nice girls and didn't hurt me at all.

In high school, I knew the girl didn't feel the same way as I did, and I knew she knew how i felt, so I just confessed already knowing the outcome. I think it was the last day of sophomore year and our club went to the park and had a potluck, so the day was really nice despite being rejected lol.

I've rejected a couple people too, but I'm always kind about it.

Basically I've only received 1s in being rejected and I try to give 1s when rejecting, but that's really up to the girl. Or guy. I think more guys liked me in high school than girls. Can't complain about it to be honest.
