I messaged a girl and asked her if she wanted to hookup and she turned me down. I am having a hard processing this.

Hi Paul,

Rejection can definitely sting. Can I ask what, specifically, you're having a hard time processing?

I just was hurt that she turned me down because she said I had no experience.

Ouch, that can certainly sting. It may help to keep in mind that someone who would hold your lack of experience against you or act weird about it is not someone who's like to be a great partner for you in the first place.
