40 Things To Remember About Making The First Move (When You Are Deathly Afraid Of Rejection)

If you are afraid of rejection, these reminders from Ask Reddit will help.

14. People have unique personal preferences for who they want in a partner, and often those preferences actually exclude many people that they would say are good, nice, cool people. People don’t just say yes to whoever is a good enough person. They often turn down people they like and respect, just because that person doesn’t have the particular qualities they are looking for in their romantic partner.

So getting rejected really doesn’t mean much. You could be an amazing person and still get rejected. The person rejecting you could even think you’re really cool.

15. Live by this quote:

“Imagine this: If you had $86,400 in your account and someone stole $10 from you, would you throw all of the remaining $86,390 away just to get back at the person who took your $10? Or move on and live? Right, move on and live. See we all have 86,400 second each day. Don’t let someone’s negative 10 seconds ruin the remaining 86,390. Don’t sweat the small stuff, life is bigger than that.”
