Are you one of those people who wishes that guys/girls would “just give you a chance?” Do you think that “once they get to know you…” then they will like you?
1) You better damn well make sure *you* are one of those people who gives everyone a chance to woo you. If you decide off the bat someone is too tall, short, fat, old, young, poor, has kids, is balding, has braces, is too flat chested, uneducated or whatever else you think you don’t like and could never stand in a partner, and then you don’t go out with them because of that, you don’t get to make this complaint. If someone doesn’t give you a chance it’s because of something they don’t like that they aren’t willing to get over – just like you aren’t willing to get over your thing.
2) No one owes you a chance. It’s your job to make hanging out with you irresistible. If they say no, your invitation wasn’t good enough. There was nothing in it for them, or there was too much pressure and expectation, or they didn’t feel comfortable with you. Also, maybe they just said no and you shouldn’t take it personally. Move on.
