I haven't been dumped, but it's the same feeling.

I had a summer job which had the possibility of becoming and school year job and then becoming an offer for a full-time job. They like me a lot and indicated that I would be around in the fall.

Today the boss said they don't know. There are a lot of experienced folks applying for jobs with them and I am not even done with school and they like me but they don't know.

Before we even got to that part I was thinking, "Are you dumping me?" It's more of a break so workplace can "find itself" if you will, but it feels like being dumped. I am in love and the other party is, "I really like you but I don't know."

So it's tough.

I know this isn't weight related, but it's weighing down on my pretty heavily. I thought I would be working there during the semester and they've reconsidered.

I think it's hard not to take being "dumped" in a job situtation personally no matter what our body type or self esteem level happens to be. More so if it is a job we really wanted.
However, the current economy still not good and there are a lot of people scrabbling for a job right now.
Sorry, I meant to sound more sympathetic than that! It is a bummer, especially when you get the "We really like you, but...." speech. Arrgh!
