Guys: How To Overcome The Fear Of Rejection

Updated on August 17, 2011

If you're the type of man that seems to get rejected a lot, and don't know how to handle it, then these tips are for you. They're meant to inspire and motivate you to keep on pushing, because there are many wonderful women out there that you could meet.

Here's what I would like to share...

1. It's a numbers game. The more women you meet and approach the closer you are to finding love. When I use to sell cologne at a mall some years back, my boss told me that out of 100 people I spray (or that pass me) no more than ten will buy. And after the first 50, I should start to get one customer. ONE! But that gave me motivation, even through the midst of rejection, to keep selling until I did get that one customer. And then one customer turned to two, two- ten, etc. Not only did my sales increase, but my confidence, and selling ability as well. So the moral of the story is... even if you don't land that beauty in that you've approached, keep searching- and understand that there's more fish in the sea that's willing to give you a chance.

2. You should NEVER give up hope. Don't close your heart after a rejection. Because all the women that you've met, could've lead you up to and prepared you for Ms. Right. What you go through is a test on your character and faith. If you had many disappointments when it comes to meeting women, that would just make you appreciate the right woman MORE.

      I like the part of being tested is a part of your character and faith...I also add that it's a test of your integrity, will power, and persistance helps you understand what mistakes your making and how you can change them.

      Yeah girls can be so cruel sometimes :^). But keep motivating your boys to continue to step up to the plate. You and your husband both are giving good advice.

      And thanks for the comment!

      My husband always said you can't dance if you don't dance. I told my boys the worst a girl can say is No. One of them answered that sometimes they say it real bad! Great advice.
