Not every rejection you get from a girl is explicit.
Many will be implicit.
Explicit rejections sound like this:
- “I have a boyfriend.”
- “I’m not dating right now.”
- “Sorry, I’m not interested.”
Implicit rejections, though, sound like this:
- “I don’t really live around here.”
- “I think I’m a lot younger than you.”
- “You’re not really the type I go for.”
Implicit rejections are a double-edged sword: they’re considerate, because they allow you to exit the conversation while saving some face… yet at the same time they deny you a clear objection to counter and can at times feel more like you’re bailing due to lack of skill or social pressure than due to rejection.
This article will be about when to push through implicit rejections and seek a true objection you can counter to improve your prospects with the girl, versus when to simply accept the implied rejection and walk away.
