Checkmate Dating

Rejection can be viewed as either protection or redirection. Pick one, and you’re probably right. Unrequited love.

Who needs it? Dating can be such a chore at times. You have to weave through incidents and accidents of the getting to know them phase. Then later, after you’ve invested valuable time and effort, they leave you. They leave you sometimes broken, disheartened or confused. Sometimes all three.

After a lot of introspection, and several pints of ice cream, you come to realize that rejection is actually an external stimuli letting you know that something’s not quite right with them, not you. They’re not for you, so nature kicks them out. They don’t fit. It’s like trying to get a CD to fit into an ipod. It won’t fit.

So keep going. You’ll find your mate. And they’ll fit; perfectly. Stay the course and may the force be with you.

  1. Rejection is my number one fear and insecurity when I dig to my core (through poetry) to realize it. I’m also currently trying not to do unrequited love… Between this and your home post, you’ve covered all of my rawest personal issues, lol.

    1. Lol we have that in common…personal issues I mean. I’m not afraid of rejection. Don’t be afraid. Fear draws the object of that fear. Embrace the risks. Unbridled. Go for broke. Love/God took a risk that you would choose his son. It paid off for Him. You are your Father’s daughter aren’t you? Then be like Him. Take a chance on love
      Be open.

      1. Ugh. That’s high stakes. I was born to love but haven’t experienced it yet. I reckon that’s where home may lie…
