I am 23 years old, I believe I am attractive and I'm intelligent, I really don't think that I have any big issues. Maybe that I am a bit reserved and guarded but I don't believe that it's appropriate for women to be too needy or available to men anyways. I have been single for over 2 years now and would really like to start dating but I can't even get a guy to ask for my number. I must admit I'm not very good at flirting and it's something that I actually completely avoid because I just believe that it's something that "weak" women do. I always think what if I flirt with this guy and he doesn't like it and rejects me or what if I make an attempt to talk to him and he has a girlfriend and then I feel like a total idiot. So I would just rather avoid those situations and treat guys as if they are my friends/my cousins/my family. But I obviously know that this is giving off the wrong message and signals to guys, they most likely perceive me as being "unavailable", which is something I like but at the same time I don't like. I want guys to know that I am a strong and worthy person who respects herself but at the same time I want them to approach me and make me feel desired, I want to get asked out for gods sake!!! lol
How can I find a middle-ground?

This might help, but it's a long read.
