A strategy that recently divorced people, trying to get back into the dating scene, use to experience rejection as they re-insert themselves into the dating scene. The objective is to deliberately experience rejection by someone who is known to be unattainable (owing to relationship status, class, or behavioural and physical attributes), in order to overcome a fear of rejection.
Bald, stumpy Louie pulled a planned rejection with that hot waitress to get the courage to ask out Amanda.
