It’s as common a part of the heterosexual male experience as there is: sooner or later, a woman rejects you.
But either way, we have a moral responsibility of dealing with it better. 4) Becoming a disgruntled “rejectee” makes you one step closer to a stalker. 5) Getting upset at her isn’t exactly going to change her mind. You’re also screwing it up for all the boys and young men out there in your life who are watching you, observing you are learning from your behavior when you get rebuffed by a woman. If we can’t handle when a woman says she’s not interested, how will be handle it when an employer says the same thing? When we get injured and can no longer run the marathon we’ve trained months for?
And if you do want to change her mind, start by showing you respect her decisions. You letting yourself getting too wounded by her disapproval means you could be on your way to some ridiculous pattern of over-reacting, and at its worst, possibly physical abuse. So not only will she miss out on possible romance, but so will your fellow men whom she’s too gun shy now to even consider. Any life spent chasing goals is going to run into some resistance–romantic pursuits aside.
It is a choice to wait for God’s best, for His glory.
It is a decision to walk by faith, to trust in God, to honor others above yourself, and to believe that God will deal bountifully with you, because He is love.
Not literally, because when has anyone ever actually shat on a parade, but figuratively.
