Updated on January 3, 2014

No always means no. Even if she does not mean it. That just sweetens the pot for later.

If you have ever been rejected I am going to tell you why and how to avoid it in the future.

Working hard is not always enough to have your love accepted. Take it from me I tried really hard about ten times and only had my last submission accepted.

This is a sad story inspired by a great author. Rejection is tough when you try your best. If you are thinking about publishing your love this article is for you. And you should look it up I cannot tell you his name but his initials are Bill Holland.

(Please I did not change his headings here and you have to apply them to loving not writing – Do not get too smutty)

I really do hope that for the most part this article is just funny to most. But there is a saying that behind every good lie there is some amount of truth. And another one is this, all good comedy has just a touch of the morose. In using humor and self depricative style I hope that people see that little part of all of our mistakes in themselves and walk away not only smiling but reflecting on how we can do better.

YOU DIDN’T DELIVER

Oh boy that is really a tough one to take lying down. But in fact that might be part of the problem if you know what I mean. It is called missionary for a reason. Other organic problems might also be to blame.

Try as you might sometimes you might just need a little of that test helper or little pill or maybe some exercise. I have heard oysters help. But change it up a bit bub.

MISSED THE TARGETED GENRE AUDIENCE

This basically means that you seemed to be impressing yourself instead of her. True or not it is a reason for rejection. And quite frankly it should be. You have got to play to your audience baby. And in this case that means her and her only. Stay focused.

Here is a solution to getting self absorbed or having wandering eyes. You really are not that cool and probably she is. And you really probably do not have anything better to do at the moment. So get over it.

Battle cry

IT LACKS PIZZAZZ

This is really sad. But sometimes were are just that way. If you are just not excited about seeing her she just is not going to be excited about seeing you, It is tough but so true. Most of us do not want to be around downer people. Sad Sacks are boring. Just the other day my wife came home and I was watching a movie, I waived from my easy chair and yelled hi honey, I am glad you are home, how was your day, did you remember the milk. Funny I thought she had forgot the milk because she turned right around and went out to dinner with auntie and cousins. "was it something I did or said" I am sure you get my point.

Boy did she like the rose pedals in her bath and candlelight, soft music and Merlot --- and I was smart enough to leave her be.

Imagination is key for any good submission. This does not mean dreamy. It means imagination with a kick! No kick it will not light the wick.

One year I gave my gal 12 roses for no occasion. She complained about the money.

The next I gave her twelve long stems I grew myself and she said, "you are so cheap"

THE HOOK IS GREAT BUT THE REST IS GARBAGE

Nice dinner, flowers, apparent money, tall, dark and ruggedly handsome smells great to fish but if you line has no action your bait gets passed by.

THE WRITING IS JUST PLAIN BAD

It is especially true that good women judge a man by the words he uses. If lousy grammar, swearing and pauses at the wrong times is just you --- set you sights lower.

How about you

Have you ever been rejected

See results

THE NOVEL SUFFERS FROM DRAG ALONG DISEASE

Beer, Pizza, football games and attempts at sex just get old real fast.


This a funny one because I once dumped a gal since that was all she wanted.

Careful Follow these tips and you will end up with one these!

THE WRITING LACKS BOLDNESS

If you are more concerned with pleasing her than being a man and doing what is right. You better be a damned good liar. Because what she said is not what she meant.

THE READER IS LEFT DEVOID OF EMOTIONAL ATTACHMENT

Well basically if you are committing any of the above you are on the verge of this problem. I know I know you do not want to listen to her yack on about other women. And I know you do not want to share or even show your feelings. Well then you do not deserve her.

HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT

AT THE END

IN THE END, THE BOOK WAS JUST A BIT TOO WEAK

As writers and Professors must publish or perish. So must a man beat expectations or the fire is soon gone baby gone.

Love really is awesome.

I hope this hub finds some women laughing a little at themselves for rejecting guys that made some mistakes. Looking for that perfect catch sometimes leaves us fishing only in our dreams. We need to be loved. I do not think a single woman has ever loved me that she loved everything about me.

Now me I love everything about my wife and if I did not she would leave me ;-)

A big old thanks to Bill Holland, I hope he don't mind much.

(I just can't resist this last part)

      I am sure your take on this issue will be more enlightening than mine. I read your hub on getting a guy to propose. And found much important stuff about life. But refrained from commenting ;-)

      Very clever and funny and probably useful for some men and women who don't seem to have a clue.

      It is 23 degrees here and all of us deep south wusses are freezing. Just thought I would mention it because I am feeling sorry for myself. :) Hope things are warm and pleasant there. Theresa

      Thank you for laughing at life with me. I truly believe that I am just an idiot who sees things others miss or care not to think of.

      Interesting/amusing read. Rejection is never a nice feeling. You can't even shrug it off lightly. Cute photo.

      Just back in from a trip where computers do not work along with cell phones and there is no electricity except batteries, sorry that I missed your visit. Here is a strange one on this: Some folks are addicted to rejection.

      Thank you for dropping by and commenting.

      Kenneth, it certainly is my pleasure to follow you. I have definitely researched how to be rejected. Thank goodness my wives are aloof!

      Hi, Eric,

      Thank you so much for the comment. And I appreciate your following. You need to do a hub entitled, "In Praise of Rejection and Those in History Whom Have Been Rejected," and name some famous people.

      Hope I have helped you.

      Ah, the pain of rejection. It is very familiar to me, which is why I am thankful that I finally managed, late in life, to lasso in a guy who didn't reject me. I enjoyed your article very much.
