Love IS a battlefield. Someone who goes by the name makewafflesplz recently asked Reddit: What's the most brutal way you've been rejected by someone? And holy heartless Batman, some of you humans are SAVAGE.
Here are 13 tales of rejection that will make you want to give up on love altogether and just adopt a bunch of cats.
Standing in the rain at night, after two years of dating, I think she is about to tell me that she loves me. Nope. She tells me that she is in love with my brother and has been dating me to get closer to him. I told my brother and he said "Hell no! Fuck that crazy bitch!"
Told me I turned her into a lesbian
Me and my best guy friend at the time were planning on going to the movies to see Deadpool last year. We lived on different sides of campus, so we planned on meeting at the theater. I thought this was going to be like a date, so we split a popcorn and grabbed seats. We chatted a bit, and once the previews started, he leaned in towards me and I definitely thought he was going in for a kiss. I went for it, only to be met by his hand on my mouth pushing me away and a weirded out look on his face. Turns out he was trying to ask me to move down a seat because he had decided to invite his new gf (who I had never met/knew about) and he wanted to sit by her. Not only was I mortified, but he kept the popcorn for himself and this chick. First and last time I initiate plans.
Got dumped by the girl I was going to propose to in a foreign city, halfway through a two week vacation. She just disappeared on me. Knew something was up when her luggage disappeared from our hotel room, she ignored every text I sent her, didn't hear from her for six months when she finally sent me a message: "How are you doing?"
I guess she got concerned, or as concerned as a heartless reptile can be, when I stopped updating Facebook, Instagram, and changed all my statuses. She never got a response from me, and went on permanent block. She then tried to blow up my Facebook, until I unfriended her. I may have talked to her had she provided an explanation, but she never did. Fuck her.
I got rejected when I wasn't even trying to hit on the guy. A few years ago in December, I was at a bar with a friend when a guy dressed as Santa Claus was walking around. He walked up to my friend and said something like "Santa's giving out gifts, and all the pretty girls get one for free!" and handed her a trinket.
Then he looked at me up-and-down and added, "Yeah, you'd have to pay."
I had someone come up to me and say they liked me. I smiled, then they said "hahahaha just kidding. You're a loser."
That shit stings for months, man.
Edit: I was 11. Although I still know people who would do this.
I was at a party in high school and I made a move on my crush at the time. She turned me down quickly, and that was that...until the next school day. She apparently went around telling everyone that we hooked up, but I had a tiny penis and I had trouble getting it up.
She not only refused my request, but assured no one at the high school would ever think about getting with me.
Had a girl fake suicide once because I asked her out. True story.
When I asked a girl in Liverpool for a light she turned to me and shout: "Fuck off"
Met up with a girl from Match and we sat down at a restaurant and grabbed the first round of drinks. So far, so good. Decent conversation ten minutes in. She then asks if she can excuse herself a second while she goes to the bathroom. No problem. She walks away and two minutes later, the waitress comes over with the check. I gave her a confused look. Waitress says that she thought we were leaving because my date just walked out the front door and got in her car. Sure enough, ten minutes in was all this woman needed to decide to just back out, not even have the human decency to finish her drink and just run away.
Never even bothered to text her to ask what was up. Finished her drink and then headed back home.
I was on a blind date. Date was going well. On her way to the restroom she met anouther guy, and snuck out the back with him. The bartender saw everything, and gave me free drinks for the night, so at least I had that.
Not sure if this counts as rejection because I didn't even ask her out.
In middle school I had a crush on this one girl for a while. One day she pulled me aside and said, "Hey so I know you have a crush on me and I just don't feel the same way so can you stop liking me please?"
I didn't even ask her out and I got rejected by her.
I was friends with this girl who was a grade above me in high school. We were friends on facebook and one day she listed me as her brother. (._.)
