Why is it that we have to physically hear rejection when it comes to dating?
I know I posted about how not knowing is sometimes best, but that "sometimes" mostly applies that to fledgling crushes. Once that little crush has turned into a parasitic nuisance, sucking our thoughts day and night, we eventually have to buckle down and figure out if our dreams will be crushed or fulfilled.
Even when we know we don't have a chance with Mister Dreamboat, we have to hear it straight from the boat's horn and sometimes "ship" happens.
Something about hearing this news eliminates the fabricated .01% chance we have so fancifully concocted in our imaginations that he is interested. Any chance is aiding us in our delusional abilities to not get over said young man. How is it we manage to cling with our lives to that .01% chance?!?
Does knowing straight from the source help you be 100% over it?
