But you have many clues and in some cases they're worth exploring. Examine both sides of the conversation and consider whether you really were clicking as well as you thought. Women are often leery of any guy who is 'too nice'.

If you communicated by text messages or email for a while, and then they wanted to discontinue, you have the past emails to go over. Men are often turned off by a woman who doesn't show enough interest in them.

'Explore' means trying to understand why the rejection occurred. Many times, you don't have much to go on - just a 'Not interested'.

People who reject you rarely give a lot of reasons or facts to help you figure out why they acted as they did. Sometimes it's possible to do everything right, but do it in the wrong way.

Rejection, Not All Bad Dealing with rejection is never fun. You expressed an interest in someone, and they said 'No, thanks'. That early rejection saves you more grief later, when it turns out your fantasy doesn't match reality. But when that happens a few times, or from someone you really thought you had a connection to, it's worthwhile taking some time to try to understand why. There are often multiple reasons, some not so easy to ferret out.

But just as physical pain, unpleasant as it is, has a healthy biological purpose, so rejection can be good. It's very easy to preach 'turn lemons into lemonade'. So, to make rejection anything other than a pain, it's necessary to give a recipe for making it a positive. 'Acceptance' means realizing that not everyone will be interested, even if you're interested in them.

You may find it exasperating, but I just think it’s human nature. We know that online dating presents a lot of choices.

We know that men are looking for younger and thinner and women are looking for taller and wealthier.(For example, the phrase ‘all men are jerks’ or similar wouldn’t even exist if, well, most men weren’t actually jerks).A third reason is, honestly, the often overlooked for this criticism. And, dare I say, the fact that other men are silent about this and the only people criticizing this type of unacceptable behavior are women – is the biggest problem.On average, the women described themselves as 8.5 pounds thinner in their profiles than they really were.Men fibbed by 2 pounds, although they lied about their height, rounding up a half inch.You don't know the circumstances of the person you contacted, so you can't really draw any conclusions at all.
