This is normal behaviour . You just have to build up some courage , try looking at it this way . If you don't ask someone out you will never know what they would have said but if you take the change and they say no , well then you can always ask someone else out and they were not meant for you anyway , but if they do say yes then you are getting what you wanted . It is your fear holding you back , if you can find a way to get past your fear of rejection you will feel so much better . Try and get it in your mind that it doesn't matter what they say , just know that you are a good person and you will find someone who will see this in you also . Best of Luck !!

its one thing to say i will get over it then actually doing it. it lingers over me like a cloud i try to build confidence but get nothing.

Build your self-confidence and trust yourself that you can do it. Don't be afraid to approach them and talk to them and be friendly with them until the next time you see yourself would be dating them already. You will not die if at first you'd be ignored. Try again then try again until you'd be able to overcome your feeling of insecurity which is keeping you from even going near them.

Maybe your depression is holding you back, and maybe your holding back is causing your depression -- just go forward and talk to these girls. Good Luck!

Well I hope I can give you some answers that may help. You say you have a girl you love and many you want to date..is the girl you love your girlfriend? if so, then I suggest dating around as you have desires to date. If your single, maybe you are scared to approach these girls for fear of rejection. Just start a conversation and get to know them.I wish you all the luck, so cheer up and enjoy life my friend!
