Rejection seems like the biggest nightmare in the world, but this doesn't mean that life has to stop and you can never try again. You have to get back on the bandwagon and try again. Imagine if you never tried anything in your life because you were worried about getting rejected. How boring life would be! There is a saying: It is better to have loved and lost than to have never loved at all.
Getting a kiss rejected is hard, but just like anything in life, you do get over it. You have to try again.

Yes, it will be scary, but it has to be done sooner or later – and it might as well be sooner! I know it is a scary thought, but imagine if you never had another kiss for the rest of your life because you were too scared to try again…
Ask yourself why your kiss was rejected. Don't lie to yourself, either. See the truth objectively. Maybe the other person didn't like you in that way, or they had a boyfriend, or they thought you were drunk, or they were drunk. There could be many reasons for it, but you have to face the facts so you remember for next time.
The first thing you need to do is apologize. If you are nice about it, then they won't be scared off by you, and they will leave you with some dignity. Just a quick “ I'm sorry, I shouldn't have done that. ” will do. Don't start beating yourself up in front of them; otherwise, you will turn it into a big deal and you will both feel awkward around each other in the future. If you start yelling at them or making them feel bad, it isn't going to make them want to kiss you any more than before. They have the right to not want to kiss you. Would you kiss someone you didn't like, just because they wanted to kiss you?
If you want to, you can make a little joke to ease the tension, but don't say something to make them feel bad. “ I knew I shouldn't have had that garlic bread, ” would be fine as long as you laugh, too. It also makes the other person not feel guilty and will help them feel comfortable around you.
Be carefree. Don't act all awkward around them. You need to be the bigger person here to let them know you feel all right about it, and they will be waiting to see how you react to them the next time you see them. It is quite likely they will mirror your actions. In other words, if you ignore her she will ignore you back, but if you are relaxed and say hi, she will say hi back.
You can't beat yourself up. Good on you for giving it a try. Making the first move is a very brave thing to do. How were you to know the outcome if you never tried? You don't want to live your life as a “ What if? ” Now that you know, you don't have to spend all those hours thinking about it. It's done, and you can put the whole episode behind you and move on.
One thing you need to know is that rejection happens to everyone during their life. The world would stand still if people never gave things a second shot. That is why nobody should wallow in self pity. Learn from it and continue to make it better the next time.
What you need to do now is get out there and give it another try. Whoever it is you are going to try and kiss, don't go into it thinking that you are going to get rejected or it will lower your confidence. Give yourself a clean slate. You need to go into the next kiss with full confidence; otherwise, the other person will notice. Confidence is what attracts the opposite sex to each other and makes them feel they are in capable hands.
Use the rejection to your advantage. Tell yourself that now you know what went wrong and consider what you have learned. Every situation you are in, good or bad, is an opportunity to learn. So the rejection can work to your advantage, because you learn to read people's signals and body language to tell if they feel the same way about you.
If your friends hassle you about being rejected, don't worry about it. At least you tried! Your friends are probably just looking for a reaction, and if you don't give them one, they will get bored and let it rest. If you start jumping up and down and yelling, everyone will know how truly upset you were. Remember your pride.
Are you ready to get back out there and give it another try?
As I see it, you have two choices. (1) You could sit at home and remember that embarrassing moment and build it up to something it isn't, or (2) you could get out there and have a good time. The problem isn't as big as you make it out to be. The other person won't think it is as big a deal as you think, either. Tell yourself that there are worse things in the world that could happen to you. Hold your head up and feel confident. Remember that confidence is the key.
