The first time you realized the world wasn’t a fair place was probably in elementary school when you got your crush her favorite candy. But then, later that school year, you overheard her telling her friends you were not her type.
That must have stung. The fact is, sometimes, no amount of gifts or affection could make someone reciprocate your love for them. As a result, everyone, at some point, experiences the unbearable pain associated with rejection.
While rejection is a general phenomenon to humans, the way it is handled by people largely varies. Some people, for instance, have a, which is trauma built from being neglected by loved ones since they were young.

To begin with, most people who have phones (millennials and gen-z) are usually in proximity to it, so when someone is taking hours to respond or leaving you on “read,” it’s not unintentional. It’s a choice, and they’re subtly telling you to back off. Of course, you may bring it up to the person to see if they’ll adjust for you. If they start replying, but it’s one-word answers, or your conversations seem forced, the person is uninterested. Do yourself a favor and take your love elsewhere.
Relationships are very delicate in the beginning, andis not the way to go. If your crush is always indecisive when you ask to hang out, then she’s probably uninterested in spending time with you to get to know you more. Even worse is when she leads you to believe she’ll show up, then calls to give some flimsy excuse about something coming up. If this has happened more than twice, it’s no mistake. Walk away from that person and the entire situation.
