30 Women Reveal The Scariest Ways Guys Have Reacted To Rejection

If you're out there, actively dating men, you've probably dealt with a few rejection horror stories.

Here are a few rejection stories to (hopefully) make yours feel normal in comparison.


Leaving my grandmother’s house the boy next door asked me to come hang out I said no (this was a regular occurrence and it bothered me). He began to follow, walking, then running, as I raced to my house down the road. He ran in my house after me and pushed into the room I tried to hide in. He pinned me to the wall with his body and held my arms above my head and staring at me for what felt like forever, before eventually letting go and leaving. He was a friend to my older brother. I was 13. No one believed me.



Once I was walking home and a truck pulled up at a red light. The guy kept trying to cat call me so I ignored him… until he yelled “What are you, stupid or something?” So I told him to piss off amd the truck pulled away at the green. A few blocks later, the same truck reappears and the guy is screaming at me about how he’s going to shoot me in the head before driving away. I had to walk another ten blocks home alone, but I detoured so I could walk by a bar I used to work at just in case. Luckily he didn’t come back.



Told him I just wanted to be friends as I was seeing someone long-distance at the time. Response: “obstacles are meant to be overcome” so he gave me 3/4 of a bottle of wine and sexually assaulted me when I started blacking out.



I was stalked in my early 20s by a guy who would often come into my work and flirt with me. I declined dating him because he was a good 15 years older than me and I wasn’t interested. He proceeded to follow me around to my other jobs (I worked three jobs at the time), make insulting/degrading comments about my body in front of my coworkers under the guise of “joking,” somehow managed to get my number and text me to call me a cunt, a bitch, and tell me he knew where I lived. I have no idea if he was bluffing.



My current girlfriend has a 6” cut on her left thigh after her ex assaulted her with a knife in an attempt to rape her. As they fought she yanked out the knife and held it at his throat to force him off her. The fucker is serving 7 years in prison.



I was friendly with him for 3 days then he told me he was in love with me. I told him to please give me space and leave me alone and that I did not love him. He threatened to kill himself. When I didn’t give him the attention he expected he came up with a murder suicide plan for us. He told a coworker and luckily that man turned him in….we’re both in the Army and live in the same barracks building.
