This rejection was particularly heartbreaking. I was hoping she’d be the one. She gave helpful feedback, though. Which I really appreciated.

Form reply--I wonder if this is what she sends to everyone?:
Many thanks for sending me your submission, which I read with interest. I'm afraid, however, that I didn't feel passionately enough about it to offer representation. Our business is subjective by nature and another agent may well feel differently. I wish you the best of luck.
