Rejection in dating or nonredamancy ("not loved in return") is a more formal way of describing the friendzone. It basically refers to the situation wherein one makes efforts to romantically connect with a person and faces only rejection, nonreciprocity and unrequitedness. In a nutshell, nonredamancy constitutes typically failing at one's courtship attempts.
Causes[edit | edit source]
Although rejection is normal and even something which normies should anticipate, the rate at which people face nonredamancy varies widely. Whereas it is possible that top decilers such as Francisco Lachowski don't even know what nonredamancy feels like, bottom decilers such as Joseph Merrick (elephant man) will probably face a stupendous amount of nonredamancy.
Since cold approaches and warm approaches are primarily a male domain, women are often similar to Lachowski in that they typically are unaware of what nonredamancy feels like. This obliviousness is one of the reasons those in the incelosphere tend to be perplexed whenever they see a female journalist writing about male sexuality. In the cybercel's mind, this makes zero sense since a female cannot possible have any inkling of what the male experience is like. One demographic that is well-acquainted with nonredamancy is those on the inceldom spectrum.
What separates normies from those on the inceldom spectrum is that whereas normies may experience nonredamancy at an intermittent rate, for the latter, nonredamancy is perpetual; hence the neologism perpetual nonredamancy.
