Hey everyone, Lately I have fallen into a funk as I feel like I constantly keep repeating the same cycle. Meet a girl in a class I am in, start developing strong feelings, decide to grow a pair and ask her on a date, discover that I cant read people in the slightest when she says she is taken, and start over on things. Even when I take the time to talk to the girl in question for as long as possible and try to give signs of my own to at least hint that I am interested before asking her on a date. I am very methodical on the process and often overthink things like this, so I typically only pursue 2-3 girls actively a year. My record at college so far is I got a yes from 1/4 girls I talked to, which led me to my first ever date , where I predictably blundered from a lack of experiences and pushed me to just being asked to be a friend. What hits me harder is that I am a pretty big introvert at school. I am pretty good if someone else enters a conversation with me, but if I have to initiate things, then I just try to script things and they all flat. I hate going to parties, but it seems like that is the only option for me at this point to meet more people, however that seems even more futile when I dont drink at all which just leaves me out of place further. Every time I look to classes I am in, they have ended like I stated before, with myself just looking like an awful person for trying to date someone who is already taken. If only there was some green text over everyone who was single, things would be a lot easier lol. Now, I am around 620 days on no PMO and I am just feeling like garbage considering my latest blunder was just a few days ago. I want to succeed as everyone does, but now I just want to be even more conservative with who I pursue which seems like a bad option, but I really dont know what to do at this point. I know this came across as really rambly, but I just had to rant this all out somewhere and what way could be better than in text form.
