I got dumped online! Does it count?
Nothing can be as harsh as being rejected by someone after pouring your heart out to them. And this harsh reality becomes a stumbling block to many would-be-daters who have experienced it before – they’d rather just not try again.
But what happens when you send someone an email expressing an interest in them only to receive a “No, Thank You!” email? How would you feel when someone tells you “Sorry this aint working out for me” after weeks of a string of online communication? Does it have the same pinch as being dumped in person? Does online rejection count?
Apparently, according to some poll conducted on members of online dating sites, the answer to this question was unanimous – Being rejected online doesn’t count. Yes there might be some pinch… but the pinch is to a much lower degree than when the dumping is done in your face.
Your perfect partner could be online right now...
What are you looking for?
When those emails go unanswered and the chats are ignored, you should take comfort in the fact the brush off could be as a result of anything ranging from petty to something massive. Have you heard of the crazy fetishes people have online? Maybe the person didn’t like your skinny self – they prefer some chub on their women; maybe your nose is too thin.
So quit thinking you are not photogenic enough. But if you really feel its your photo, change it. If you feel your profile is not catchy enough, have a friend read it and critique it. Who knows; maybe the right mate for you isn’t within your search criteria. So go ahead and widen the pool. Don’t take online rejection too personal. It could be because of anything.
But trust me, it would really bother me if we have been exchanging emails for weeks then you drop me like some hot sh**! That’s reason enough to make it personal right?
