I am a male...but I don't feel like I'm a man. I already made a thread about this, so I don't want to start over explaining it again, but I got rejected by this girl I liked two years ago, and it still hurts. I wasn't man enough...I was weak. I was supposed to understand how she felt, but she scoffed at the notion that my feelings could be hurt. I didn't fit the idea of what she felt a man was and maybe I deserved her hurtful words and actions. I wasn't man enough to go through with killing myself...I didn't do it for attention or to make her feel bad--I just wanted the pain to stop. Rejection was hurtful enough but to have my manhood demeaned was almost dehumanizing. i'm sorry if that sounds melodramatic, but I don't how else to describe the pain I feel.
