SO what's the big deal about getting rejected anyway?

And why is it always the women/girls who do the rejecting?..

The obvious answer is men are expected to do the asking.
It's something I never understood...

Fear of rejection is like fear of being hit by the ball when you play baseball.

If you let the fear keep you from being in the game you miss out on a ton of fun

EVERYONE gets rejected at some time or another in life, male AND female.

Sounds like something, someone who hasn't experienced it much if at all, would ask

because at its core, a person is telling you that your personality, feelings, etc is not good enough. Most of us like to believe that we are decent human beings, so when somebody tells you aren't good enough for them, it can hurt your self esteem.
