It`s hard to deal with rejection at any age. But think about it this way: If you were never rejected by anyone you dated, you would probably marry the first person you dated and miss out on all those great relationships throughout the rest of your life! Ultimately, rejection gives us the opportunity to meet new people and have new experiences. Rejection also makes us stronger. Every time we survive a bad break up, we are stronger for it and are more mentally ready to meet the next person who could be that 'special someone.'
