When someone (like me) is the only kid of mom and dad, grown up with the world moving around you, with your family taking care of you like a little emperor (or princess, someting very common in Spain, and i think also in China), then when you like someone
and this person not that into you, mmm then the pride does all the work. wounded pride kidnaps the mind, then the mind begins to look for many excuses for continue in a shit relation, is able to explain and justify all the stupids things. Is very hard for
pride accept rejection, is better believe that not. All the feelings of this rejection sometimes are confusing with love.
A caprice neither more nor less. A good oportunity for lost the time, sanity and good sense.
Some persons can smell the big pride in others and use in their favor for play with you is the same way like the people play with a cat using a toy, sometimes near, sometimes far, catch me if you can. when is a man then is a jerk, when is a woman is one Lillith.
The best solution... talk with friends, talk them your story and ask them that they ridicule your story and your actions, then the feelings of shame, doing ridicule things, will be bigger than the feelings of rejection, wounded pride. Only a feeling can defeat
other feeling, not reasons.
This is my theory and my way of escape :P
