Sometimes you’re lucky enough to establish a real connection with another person that will eventually lead to a romantic relationship with a promising future. At other times, the initial spark of attraction inexplicably burns out while burning up your self-confidence like a cheap cigar right along with it. What is it about rejection that we take so personally?
