    Default Handle Rejection Like a Champ

    Do I respond to a rejection or just move on? Is there a better response than no response?

    Now, before you say "next her", know that this was my initial response too--IGNORE text and next her. But then I thought, perhaps that's a childish approach below a PUA and even if recouping and getting laid is out of the question, handling rejection well can elevate one's game and own mental understanding.

    Backstory:
    HB9. Date was all right--it was her very first date after a 6 year relationship. I was able to make her laugh, be a bit inappropriate, work some kino, BUT unable to kiss close, she kind of just ran to her Lyft. This was a bit of a fark up (I think the responsibility always lies with the man) and a red flag. I think she may have been pretty prudish--one of her new year's resolutions was to try a pot brownie (she's 26). Anyway, not best of vibes in general, kind of thought she might be the girl who puts her pussy on a pedestal and makes a man do her bidding to have it, since she's a HB9.

    Anyway, I told her I would call her when we split, probably shouldn't have at this point, and I did end up calling a few days later as I like to keep my word (friends thought I should just never reach out to her again). Subtle suggestions of meeting up second time, but the phone call was awkward over all.

    After a day she texts, and it's kind of expected, but she says, "Not sure about second date."

    My initial response was "Yeah, great. Ignore text and next." But then I wondered if there's a better response like, "cool, let's be friends" (sounds like shit I know, but I'm asking this question because I couldn't think of a better response than no response). Frankly, while I don't want her, I always want to improve my mindset if I can, and thought a good thread on rejection could help a lot of aspiring PUAs.

    Is there a better response than no response?

    "K"

    I can't put fewer than 30 characters, but this is how I would respond to it

    YES, sometimes no response is the best response but in this case I would have gone with something like "That's great because I've decided to become a Buddhist Monk and I'm heading to Tibet next week .... good luck with things" .....this leaves her an opening if she wants to reconnect since she said "shes not sure" and if not at least you go out on a funny note ..... as far as your date, kino is good but did you build attraction , without out that you have nothing. One last thing, please don't ask her if you can be friends it's too AFC

    "Cool, 'cause I wanted to ask your sister/best friend/mother out, give me her number, please!"

    Just spitballing.
    "I got a head full of ideas, that are driving me insane!"
