How to Deal With Rejection

Your marriage proposal has just been rejected and it feels like the world is crashing down around your head. You have nowhere to run, nowhere to hide, and you wish you could just bury your head in the sand and forget about life for a while.  Your stuck with a precious wedding ring that you have no use for.  Ugh….

Some guys handle rejection really bad and go on a six-month bender as they drown their sorrows in alcohol. Others have a tendency to become sad sacks and miserable human beings that nobody wants to be around. You are going to be different because you’re going to realize that the rejection is not your fault, you will overcome it with time, and you’ll get over it faster than ever when you use the tips we’re about to share with you today.

Was There a Lack of Trust in Your Relationship?

Even though you may love this person and really want to marry her, it may not be possible because of a lack of trust in your relationship. Maybe you cheated on her at some point in the past and she’s afraid you’re going to end up cheating on her again after you tie the knot. This can create a major hurdle in your relationship and the only way you’ll get over it is if you can restore the trust somehow.

Ask your significant other why they rejected you. If it has something to do with a lack of trust in the relationship, talk to her and ask her why she doesn’t trust you anymore. If you find out that she hasn’t trusted you in a long time, you may not be able to overcome this major relationship snafu. But at the same time, it’s definitely worth exploring if you really care about this person and want to marry them.


Don’t let being rejected keep you down.

Some people go to therapy to try to restore trust in a relationship. It might be worth it to explore this option if the person rejects your proposal but doesn’t reject dating you altogether. So find out about potentially seeing a therapist or other ways you can go about rebuilding trust in the relationship.

Avoid Social Media at All Costs after Your Marriage Proposal Is Rejected

At the end of the day, social media could be a real killer after your marriage proposal has been turned down. It’s eventually going to spread through social media like wildfire and people in your immediate circle are going to be talking about it online, so avoid places like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat and every other social media site you normally hang out on like the plague.

If you’re like most people and spend lots of time on social media sites each day, you need to start thinking about developing new hobbies. Maybe start playing more video games online to take your mind off of things, or sit down and binge watch a bunch of TV shows on Netflix that you’ve been putting off. Just avoid social media for the time being until the hype surrounding your rejection dies down.


By using these tips, you’ll have an easier time handling marriage proposal rejection. They will help you overcome this issue a lot faster so give them a try.
