It seems that the feeling of rejection and the emotional pain it causes is enough to fog rational thinking and actually reduce a person’s IQ, especially when it comes to short-term memory tasks and particularly decision-making.

An automatic reaction to rejection is to question yourself, take the pain and force it inwards, which results in your self-esteem and ultimately your confidence taking a knock.

Rejection fuels deeper thinking and can push you further down the scale of depression.

Rejection plays a big part in all walks of life and online dating, like every other relationship, isn’t all flowers and butterflies all of the time.

Yet, like many before me have said, it isn’t the rejection you should focus on, but the way you deal with it and rebound.

Below I’ve outlined 5 facts about rejection that you might not have known and also 5 things you can do to get yourself back on track.

Numerous studies have shown us that the same parts of the brain are stimulated by rejection as well as by physical pain which is why emotional rejection can affect people in a huge way.

It’s important to keep this in mind if you are ever going through a tough time – you have the right to feel this way.

Our evolution and tribal nature has allowed our brains to develop strong signals to avoid the likelihood of rejection.

Because our ancestors survived by being a part of a tribe, this need remains inside us and means that memories of rejection are stronger and more easily remembered than those of physical pain.

Give it a go yourself – thinking of some of your most painful memories will no doubt bring back emotionally painful thoughts over those times when you were in physical pain.
