It took me a long time to realize this, but here goes: Sometimes, when someone "rejects" you, God is trying to protect you! Let Him!

Thank you, for this well-articulated advice. As a shadchan, I have seen over and over, that the ones who keep going despite disappointment eventually succeed. Some haven't met their basherte yet, because only Hashem controls that part of dating, but they are READY FOR THAT BLESSING, because they are in forward mode.This advice can be applied to other areas of life as well. Whatever you do, don't stay stuck! The pain of any type of rejection actually ends sooner if you brush yourself off and move along. Easy? No. Worth it? Of course!

It's good advice!

Also may need to work on your appearance and how you're coming across. Just little things like cleaning up before the date. And not too aggressive in your manner. And good breath. Really. Good luck!
