Re: How to deal with a rejection?
Self Disclosure can be a deal breaker for many women and it is a common mistake that all of us men have made. You made yourself familiar which took away the novelty of what you two had. Picture a heads up Texas Hold'em game. This is a very good simile to what the game is like. When building attraction, you don't want to show your cards, you don't want to give crucial information, yet you want to send mixed signals, and confuse her because it will be the "therapist/detective" in her to figure you out turning the tables and reversing the roles.
As far as the rejection, it must of made you feel a new low that you probably never experienced. This is where you come to the fork in the road. If you go left you head back down the AFC road. If you go right you'll be taking the PUA tools you have been learning on here to adhere to the notion that the game isn't a big deal. This is where many guys can get stuck in the mud (learned helplessness) You are looking at this from a negative perspective. If you took a strength based approach, you could learn from your lesson, internalize it, and move on. If you still see her be polite with making interactions minimal and learn how to eject and keep your head up looking......
Best of luck.
