I need some dating advice. I'm currently at university and currently working on quitting PMO, but am always a little depressed because it's been so long since I've had a girlfriend. When I can stop PMO for a time, I begin to be better at talking to girls, and do. However I can never seem to find a partner. Some girls are nice, but I ask them to lunch or something along those lines, and they nicely turn me down (fortunately they're usually not mean, I tend to stay away from those people). I feel like there is something that causes girls to pity me, so they're nice, I get led on (in my mind) and then I am always rejected. I'm frustrated because part of me likes that girls talk to me, but part of me wishes they wouldn't if they didn't truly like me. Which is another issue, because I don't know how to find out if they really do like me. Also, I'm not overly attractive, but I dress nice in well fitting clothes and am not terrible looking, just average, from what I can decipher from past interactions with people. Any advice would be welcome. Thanks.
