How to Overcome Dating Rejection

dating rejection

My good friend and colleague, Bobbi Palmer, and I co-hosted a Blab live stream about dating rejection.

Do you know the difference between true dating rejection and false rejection? Do you know what to do when you feel like rejection has knocked you on your ass? Bobbi Palmer and I discussed 5 ways to keep dating rejection from taking you down.

Here are some highlights:

Sometimes, you create your own dating rejection. 

When a guy doesn’t text or call when you think he should, that is not rejection. You might get anxious. Then you get angry, and you make up all kinds of stuff in your head. This leads to creating drama, and you put a wall up. If he does call or text after a day or two, you’re so angry, you end up pushing him away. Sound familiar?

The Evolution of Dating – Infographic

evolution of dating

This infographic shows the evolution of dating and how technology has influenced how we date in the 21st century.

The evolution of dating? Twenty years ago, people met the old fashioned way—through friends, relatives, or at a dance or other social gathering. You dated people in your immediate social circles. In today’s world of technology, finding love has never been easier or more far-reaching. There are a multitude of apps and websites that promise to introduce you to your next partner. Online dating is the new normal and inevitably, if you are single and not on a dating website or app, you are probably going to have a tough time finding love.

In the past, admitting to using these websites was seen as an act of desperation, but this is not the case any longer. In today’s dating world, most people frequent a number of dating sites and apps as they test the dating waters. It is a highly acceptable practice.

Does grammar really matter in an online dating profile? Check out this new study by Grammarly.

Grammarly, the team behind the popular writing app, partnered with eHarmony to determine whether the writing skills displayed in people’s online dating profiles affect their chances of finding romance. Grammarly summarized the results, along with other online dating statistics, in the infographic below.

The study

Grammarly reviewed 10,000 eHarmony male/female matches generated by eHarmony’s matching algorithm. Fifty percent of the matches advanced to two-way communication, while the other 50 percent failed to advance. Each male and female in a match wrote long-form answers to questions on their dating profile. These writing samples were analyzed by Grammarly’s automated proofreader for accuracy in grammar, spelling, and punctuation.

5 Ways to Set Healthy Boundaries When Dating


healthy boundaries

Boundaries are essential in dating and relationships. They set the scene for men to respect, value, and cherish you.

Many of us grew up with fuzzy boundaries. I had no idea how much work I needed to do on boundary setting until after my divorce. My marriage was sorely lacking lacking in respect for personal boundaries. I had almost no privacy, except in those delicious moments when I’d take a bath and lock the only door in the house with a working lock.

You don’t need to lock yourself in the bathroom to enforce boundaries! But it is so important to set those boundaries, especially when dating. Here are my best tips for identifying and setting boundaries to create the lasting, loving, respectful relationship you yearn for.
