How do you react to being rejected by someone you are attracted to?

Have you ever been rejected by someone you had taken an interest in?  We all had that one, two, or three people that we found ourselves interesting in getting to know more about them on a more personal level past the plutonic friendship.   How did you deal with being rejection? Did you smile and walk away or did you stand there an cry?  Did you result to violence toward that person because you were rejected?    

Rejection is a hard pill to swallow when you truly have a genuine interest in that man or woman.  One has to learn to deal with it and accept the fact that not everyone is compatible.  Most important thing to remember is that people have the right to their own preference for their type of person that he or she is attracted to or interested in dating. 

Just two weeks ago, a young lady was killed because she refused to give her phone number to a man that approached her off the street as she was leaving a funeral.  The result of her no was two shots to the head because he didn't accept her response or her status.  When a woman or man says, "No, I can't give you my number or I am in a relationship"; then you should respect that person's response and relationship.  Even if the person you ask is not in a relationship, and they say no their not interested then you still need to respect his/her response to you. 

 Rejection can be hurtful, but there is someone out there for everyone. Deal with the rejection and let it go by pressing forward in the dating arena.  It's not meant to kill you, but it will help you to re-evaluate and recognize the type of person you desire to have in your life.  Be fair and don't get mad when someone turns you down.  Remember, there will be a yes when the attractions are mutual and you share some common interest.

Have you ever been rejected?  If so, how did you handle it?  Did you find yourself  evaluating yourself, your attributes, and your physical appearance justifying his or her no?
