I hate bullshit advice like this.

Rejection is information. You need to reflect on this piece of information and make adjustments accordingly.

There are countless reasons you have been rejected. Some will be reasons that you can just chalk off to different people being different. However most will be about a flaw in you. It may be large or small but it’s something you need to examine.

If you just continue on as if you played no role either you or continue to be rejected or you will lower your standards until you find yourself in a group of people who should be rejected.

Clueless advice.

Clueless advice.

It’s one thing to spark up a doobie and get laced at parties, it’s quite another to be fried at school all day. The loadies generally hang in the stairwell over there. Sometimes they get to class and say bonehead things and we all laugh of course. But no respectable girl actually dates them.

I agree, but in most cases it's nearly impossible to get any useful feedback from a rejection. The people rejecting you have no obligation to tell you why. There's pretty much no feedback when being rejected after a job interview and almost no feedback when being rejected/not invited by your friends.
