View Full Version : Pain of TOTAL Rejection. Eheh.

5th January 2006, 11:35 AM
You know, I wouldn't ordinarily post my life story in a thread on a message board. I try to keep as much of my personal life as possible off the internet. But, I need to vent, and I need to sort out the events in chronological order so they don't get confused in my head. As much as possible, I'm going to avoid using real names. If you want to hear me out, though, feel free to continue reading and responding, as this was a really significant part of my lifetime and was pretty much the conclusion of adolescence for me.

As a few of you probably have noticed by this time, I am openly bisexual. However, I had not really fully realized it until last month, when I fell hard for someone of the same gender as me. It was something I hadn't really even given much thought, because I've been "all the way" with girls before, and I love it.

At a battle of the bands, I met this boy, whom I'll call AJ. AJ was somebody I had met once in the past, as he dated my friend and we rode in the same limo/sat at the same table at Junior Prom. Well, throughout the night, we talked like normal. But then, he hurt himself, and we sat outside on the steps talking and stuff. Then, we went upstairs to watch the concert through the glass windows. It was just us. I started getting a really strong pull inside myself to kiss this boy, and kept trying to shrug it off.

Of course, leave it to "Eric" to bust out of the room right next to us and kill the moment. Haha.

A couple of days later, we got in touch again. By the end of the conversation, I was pretty convinced that I was bisexual. We openly admitted feelings for each other, the same drives, etc. I didn't really know what to think, but I felt more of a crush on him than I had for many girls that I had liked in the past. He really knew how to sweet talk me. AJ told me that I was "beautiful" and "hot" and stuff. Nobody had ever complimented me like that before. At this point, I realized that I really have a hefty crush on him, and that hanging out again would definitely confirm if we have feelings or not.

I have to be perfectly honest. I always had feelings for guys, but it was never as strong as for girls. I didn't want to be bisexual, so I always repressed them. I really prefer women. But being around AJ made me feel so right. I was happier around him than I'd ever been around any girl I'd ever dated except for this one girl, who I'll call Sarah. We'll get back to her in a minute.

My feelings inside became really powerful. The Battle was on a Wednesday. By Sunday, I felt that I had embraced enough of my personality to accept my bisexuality. I came out to my friend Samantha, who then came out to me too. It was a really emotional moment and it was actually kind of fun. I was glad I told her. Then, I decided to tell one of my closest friends, Leeann. (I didn't change her name because why should I? If anyone I know SOMEHOW were to find this online, I'd like them to know what an amazing friend Leeann is.) Leeann made me feel so comfortable about it. I realized I was happy knowing that they know. I wasn't quite ready to tell the whole world yet, though. A couple of weeks ago, the same thing had happened to one of my friends, "Dan." I didn't want to seem like a poser, trying to copy what he had. It was difficult, however, to mask my feelings.

I wanted to tell my best friend next, and then basically announce it. However, Dan felt that he should know who my crush was, since he had come out to me. (We all basically came out at the same time. It's pretty f'ing ironic.) I trusted him and told him not to tell anyone. He promised. I told him all about AJ, showed him pictures, stuff like that. However, I was smart about it and didn't give ANYONE a way of contacting AJ.

Good thing, because I was an idiot and told Dan on the internet.

He copy pasted the conversation and posted it in "Livejournal" under the heading "BREAKING FUCKING NEWS". Oh yeah, did I mention he used a special cut, so all like 50 of my friends could read it EXCEPT for me?

He did that Monday night. By Tuesday, everyone seemed to know all about AJ, and I felt awful. AJ isn't out. I immediately got in touch with my best friend, Jeff, and told him the situation. He was very understanding. In fact, everyone was very understanding of the situation except for my ex-girlfriend "Sarah" and my ex-friend "Jenna." But then the rumors began. Rumors started popping up that I told the world that Jenna's boyfriend abused her, that I hate my friend Jessica, that I want to fight my friend Jake, someone I've known since he was like 9. Somebody took it upon themselves to make up a ton of bullshit, and along with the bisexual rumors, tried to absolutely kill my reputation.

But... their plan backfired. Nobody bought the rumors. Everyone basically laughed at Dan for trying to start this shit. But now I was out. And I didn't honestly care. I felt great knowing I could really be myself and not have to worry about restraining this entire half of my personality that had been itching to be revealed for the last 19 years.

So, over the course of the next few weeks, AJ and I became pretty close friends. We talked about everything and anything, and about each other. We hung out a few times, but never just us, because of our schedules. My feelings for him grew and grew, and I assumed it was the same with him. I also fixed things with Sarah, and we're still friends, which is a good thing. I still have some feelings for her, but they're really nothing compared to what I feel for AJ.


A few days ago, AJ and I hung out, just us, at his house. There was a hell of a lot of flirting. I mean a LOT. It was a lot of fun but it got cut short because of family reasons. We had so much fun. When I came back home, he left me all these really sweet messages on the computer. I was so happy.

It should be noted that also, at about 11 PM on 31 December, I got a phone call that my grandmother was rushed to the hospital with chest pains and stuff. The next few days without her, I basically cried the whole time. I live with just her and my grandfather. I have like 5 family members total in Rhode Island. It wasn't easy. So AJ had invited me over for a little while when I was in the midst of a severe mental breakdown.

Last night, things changed.

Last night, we were supposed to hang out--me, AJ, and Leeann. However one of his female friends needed a ride to the mall to pick up the bus that'll take her across the state.

And right in front of me, they made out. BZZT AHHH falling falling BAM. Crash into the dirt. After we dropped that skank off, he told us that they were just friends and they weren't going to date. Me and Leeann looked at each other like "what the hell?" I guess that girl just wanted some action.

So the whole rest of the night, this is what I did.

I went to the mall to DDR and buy some cleaner so we could clean off the wall where he got black hair dye on it. I didn't get to DDR though. We HAD to walk around the mall so he could talk to all these people he knows, including some UGLY asian girl he hung all over, and some random ghetto dude that he ALSO hung all over.

Then we went to walmart to get 409 to clean some other shit. He hung all over Leeann! She was NOT happy and refused to flirt back.

But here's the catch. All those nice complimenting things he said about me... he said the EXACT same things to Leeann, word for word, as though they were scripted. I was frigging heartbroken. I had never felt so upset over someone I liked.

The whole rest of the night, he flirted TO leeann, who didn't flirt back. However, it was I who cleaned the walls for him in his bathroom, who used the shit to get the dye off his face and the back of his neck, who drove him around everywhere. I felt so f'ing used and depressed.

Then he really didn't want us to leave his house. We stayed until 10:30 listening to his stories about all these other people he's had sex with. And then he started flirting with ME again. Finally he asked me "What's wrong? You look upset." I've had some pretty violent tendencies in my life, but never had I wanted to punch someone in the face like I wanted to hit him. I was shaking, I was ready to cry, I wanted to drive into a pole.

So then we get ready to leave and he wants to show us something, so AJ grabs me by the hand and leads me to his backyard to show us something. Then we went to leave and he gave me this kinda nice hug and said that he'd talk to me about it later. His idea of talking to me about it later was to send me an email asking me why I was upset.

The whole ride home, I wanted to cry. Leeann busted out crying and kept apologizing for what he was doing. She didn't want that. She tried to stop it. She did what a friend would do and I am eternally grateful that Leeann is my friend.

If you want to know what the feeling of ACTUAL rejection is, try going through that. I came out for that boy. I did SO much shit for that boy. I felt for him like I had never felt, emotionally, for a girl. He was everything to me for about a month, and all I got out of it was, in the end, nothing but being hurt and emo for a couple hours.

What do you think I should do from here? Should I continue being friends with AJ? Should I tell him off? Should I punch him in the face? The feelings for him are shot. I hope they never come back.


PS when I got home the girl he was making out with sent me a friend request on myspace. XD

Wow that was very long and insightful. Unfortunately you have to got to realise there are arseholes in this world that are perfectly ready to treat you like a good cup of tea only to turn on you. I wouldn't take anything to heart. If anything he did you a huge favour. You have come out and realised what you are. This will make you a better person. I say just drop the whole thing and get on with your life. Do not dwell on the past, it will only make you angry and depressed. AJ is either a cunt or a blatant fucking faggot. Get over him, find a girl or a boy and just fuck yourself senseless. You will feel so much better afterwards.

I agree wholeheartedly with firepokemon. The guy's a friggin jackass man. Just trying to get an easy lay with any person he's on first-name basis with. Again, its good that you managed to come out openly about your orientation, and now you're more comfortable about being out in public. Again, don't take any of his crap to heart and you TRULY are lucky to have a friend like your friend Leeann. Just leave the horny asshole of a loser and find someone else. I don't know about fucking them senseless, but you definitely need to find another person just get your mind off this incident

Yeah, I'm over him. He still "broke my heart" but the depression aspect of it only lasted for the 30 seconds or so after I fell on the ice and nearly broke my ass in half. He's a slut, really. A male slut.

Aren't we all (men) mansluts at one point in our life? ;)

There's a difference between being a horny bastard and sleeping with a lot of girls, and leading people on and lying to them.

Redefining tl;dr for a new generation.

Just...get over it.

If it wasn't for the fact that he was hanging all over "ghetto dude", I would guess that he was afraid of being found out as bi so he was hanging onto as many girls as he could so that he looked straight.

This still may be the case (depending on who else was around), but I think it's at least his (very very chickenshit) way of telling you he doesn't want to be "exclusive". Sorry he chose such a stupid and insensitive way.

Good for Leeann for not flirting back. At least you know you've got friends. :)

Feel better, man! (Not good at emotional stuff, eheh... but seriously, wishing you the best.)

That's a pretty awful story dude. :( My condolences. It doesn't really sound like he's worth it.

I know what it's like to be rejected all too well. I don't really know you guys too well, so I won't go into much detail, but I met this girl at the beginning of last school year, and I didn't really feel too much at first. We became friends, though, and eventually we grew to be the best of friends, and we talked for hours almost everyday. Problem was that around that time I started to feel different. I'd fallen in love. I'm a pretty shy person, so it took a lot of courage for me to tell her, but when I did, she just said she could never see us being anything more than friends and that she doesn't even want a boyfriend while she's still in school. I was heartbroken. I was sure that she and I were perfect for each other. We tried to stay friends, but we grew apart, and stopped talking. I not only got rejected, but I also lost my best friend. I'm still not over her, and this all happened around a year ago, and I still haven't really found anyone to fill her void. :( I know my story probably isn't helpful, but at least you're not the only one who's been rejected badly.
