Host Thoughts on Handling Rejection

Rejection is a mofo, but it’s important to let your feeling out and cry if you need to. Even if the relationship didn’t last very long, take the time you need to feel better. On dating apps, don’t be a garbage person and be rude. Understand the dating game out there and move on. 

I spent a month crying in the fetal position under my desk after being rejected by the love of my life, so I know something about handling rejection poorly. It’s okay to be hurt, and it’s okay to be emotional, but there are healthy ways to deal with it, and there are terrible ways to deal with it, and chances are you do the terrible shit.
