A Rejection Strategy is one of two things that a woman may do to a man in terms of a developing or existing relationship. It usually pertains to sex, but it also can relate to developing interaction and the early stages of contact between a man and a woman.

The first of the two is Complete Rejection. This involves her attempting to steer the interaction away from attraction and sex. In normal conversation, she will become more disconnected, or she will simply stop talking all together. She has no desire for anything further, and will thus move to terminate what there is between her and the involved man.

The second Rejection Strategy is Incomplete Rejection or Delay. It involves her showing hesitation and interest at the same time. Her reasons for withholding are usually to allow time for her emotional requirements to be met. If the man sticks around, sex may become potential, but it depends on if and when she is ready.
