| | Re: How to handle rejection...
Do not ignore it.
The best answer, deal with it exactly as you wish, as long as whatever happens, your composure is calm, confident, and in control.
FOr example, if it was myself, I would take out the ring to show my wife, and with a big smile ask her to explain the difference between a wife and a wh0re.
Regardless of her answer, let her speak and listen intently, repeat some aspect of her answer back to her to show her you are listening and understand what she is saying.
If her answer is acceptable, kindly ask her for her hand, and place the ring back on it's rightful place.
If she gets unreasonable, or throws a tantrum, calmly put ring back in pocket and go about your business until some other time.
Again, this just an example, but notice to keep calm and control, a little humor, and give your woman opportunity to share her side in doing all this.
I wish you well.
