Hormones (among other things) can make you want to do things you wouldn’t, had you given it a real thought. Specially when you’re a teenager. That’s why rejection, even though hard as hell to take, might be the best outcome. Or at least, not the worst possible. Good things take time to happen. The best things in life are never too late.
Or, like The Stones would put it: “you can’t always get what you want… but if you try sometimes, you just might find, you get what you neeeeeeeeeeeed!!”.
