3 Ways Dating Sucks But Makes You A Better Person In The Long Run

May 20, 2015 2 min read

Most of us want to find a life partner. If you aren't one of those lucky folks who found the right one on the first attempt, you've been subject to the dating game. This means you've probably been rejected, hit on by strange people and found yourself in several confusing and dumbfounding situations. Dating can be miserable. But don't get too down. Here are 3 ways that the down side of dating may actually make you a better person.

1. Rejections Makes You Resilient.

Let's face it, no one likes to be turned down. You muster your courage and approach that guy or gal you've been eyeballing all night only to have them brush you off. Ouch. But the thing is, the more often this happens to you, the more you will be able to just accept it as being part of the dating game. And the better you get at accepting failure as an occasional part of life, the easier it will be to get past it. When you botch a presentation at work or your musical demos go no where, it isn't the end of your career. Just a detour on the path. Rejection in dating makes you more resilient to the other challenges you face in life.

2. It’ll help you embrace the unknown.

One of the most frustrating things about dating is the uncertainty. You never know when you are going to meet "the one." You could put yourself together perfectly for a night on the town and get not a single bit of attention. On the flip side, you could be wearing your workout gear and strolling down the produce aisle at the grocery store when an interesting conversation is struck. You never know. Dating makes you aware that life is incredibly unpredictable. Once you accept that there are unknowns in life, it can open you up to all of the possibilities that exist. It encourages you to be ready for opportunities that will improve your life.

3. You’ll know more about your ideal partner.

Every failed dating encounter you have, tells you more about the person you truly want in your life. Say your last failure was with an adrenaline junkie who is always wanting to do fast paced, death defying activities. You didn't think you liked the idea of cliff diving but you went anyway. It was a disaster. Now you know, maybe someone who lives a life of thrill seeking adventure may not be the right one for you. It has helped you narrow your search criteria. Silver lining, I'd say. You may still be single and having a hard time finding the right match for you, but don't worry. View every dating experience as a life improving act. You are learning so much about yourself and what you want in life all while becoming stronger in the face of rejection. Be proud of yourself and get back out there!

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.


We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.


All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
