How to Deal With The Bitter Sting of Rejection

So you put yourself out there and you got pied in the face. It's  never a good feeling but here are a few ways you can cope with the bitter taste of rejection.

12. Wallow

There's no pity like self pity. You are the only person in the world who has ever felt like this. Embrace the shittiness that is now your life.

11. Never Leave Your House Ever Again

Darkness is now your only friend. Keep paying for your subscription of Netflix and you will never have to face the outside world again.


10. Creep on Them

Fill up the lonely hours by constantly creeping on them on Facebook. You need to know every aspect of their social life via Instagram.

9. Change Your Whole Outlook on Life

What is life?


8. Become A Cynical Arse

Loathe couples and anyone who actually seems to be happy. Fuck your YOLO.

7.Take it Personally

Blame yourself entirely. It's all your fault.


6. Comfort Yourself in the Arms of Another

It's a scientific fact that to get over someone you have have to get under someone else.

5. Plot Revenge

During your daily Facebook stalk, you have figured out their daily routine, their route to college, perhaps even some very fatal nut allergies...


4. Convince Yourself It's Their Loss

After a night of drinking, it is now time to have a moment of clarity and see yourself as the most fabulous person in the world.

3. Stop Taking Care of Yourself

As soon as the hangover kicks in, your view will start to gradually change back to self deprecating hatred. The Dominoes delivery man will never judge you...


2. Give Up On Love Entirely

It's really a hindrance to your mental health. Use this spare time to find a cure for cancer or an equation to make chewing gum never lose its flavour.

1. Rehearse What You Will Say To Them When They Eventually Come Crawling Back

Oh because they will. Once they realise you are the love of their life, you'll have already moved on with someone far better looking with a huge shlong. You need to have the ultimate come back at the ready, in front of all your friends and their family so then everyone can erupt in a 'Damn girl! You just got served brotha!' Because clearly this is the most healthy way to deal with rejection and you have somehow become a character in, 'Bring It On.'
