People of Twitter have been sharing their ‘tales of rejection,’ and some of them are honestly too much. I will never understand how or why people do the things they do. My worst experiences with rejection extend only as far as being ghosted or left on read. So my heart really goes out to these poor sods who have really been through the rejection ringer.
“You’re Like A Sister”
What was your harshest rejection?
I’ll go first. One time, a super charming guy I had a crush on took me out to dinner a few times, invited me to a swanky gala, had me over for Thanksgiving, and then introduced me to his buddy as “a girl I wish was my sister”.

I really hope this woman gave up immediately after hearing that…
One time a guy broke up with me because I didn’t understand his “secret band.” He also played the guitar with his feet.

I don’t know whether to be grossed out or impressed by that last part?
At Least You Made Her Laugh?
I asked a girl out once and she laughed for 3 minutes. At least. After 3 minutes I left. It happened in 1977. For all I know, she’s still laughing.

Girls love funny guys, right?
A super handsome guy that I thought looked like a young Paul Newman took me to sushi. He seemed uncomfortable during dinner and then said “Ever think someone is cute until you get up close and realize they just have a ton of freckles?” I have a ton of freckles.

Is this a thing? I thought freckles were supposed to be adorable??
Gotta be when a guy I loved ignored my calls while I was puking up blood in the emergency room. It’s hilarious now. #noitsnot

Was it a Friday night though? Because Fridays are for the boys…
Mark Freaking Sucks
Dated a girl for 3 years and when her best friend from highschool, Mark, moved back to town, she called me over to her place one night to give me all my stuff back and to let me know she wanted to date Mark. They lasted 3 months because he moved in with her and wouldn’t get a job

Hahaha I feel like we all know a Mark, tbh.
My fiance bought a house without telling me. So, I took that as a subtle hint.

Yeah, um, that will probably do it.
This Escalated Quickly
It didn’t result in immediate break up, but he wanted to do a Halloween “couple” costume with another girl, claiming that it didn’t mean anything. They’re married now.

Did they dress as JFK and Marilyn Monroe??
Kyle Is Gross
I was once playing scattegories with a girl I had a crush on in school. The letter was “K” and the prompt was “something that’s gross” my crush answered “Kyle” and then got more points than me.

Kyle, honey, your high school crush was a savage.
“Look, you’re a really nice guy and if things we’re different I think we’d be happy. But you’re not rich enough… or, you know, at all.”
Real gut punch, that one. 🤷🏼♂️

Well, if anything, at least she was honest….
