Embarrassment at Rejection

When you get old, sometimes you lie awake at night remembering your life and cringing at the things you did. One of the things I do is recall times I came on to someone who was not interested. I feel dreadfully embarrassed. Yet if I think about the many times people came on to me whom I was not interested in, even when they would not take no for an answer, I was not that seriously inconvenienced. Sometimes, it was even flattering.
