I always get so shy and embarrassed whenever a cute guy approaches me that I never know what to say, so the conversation never goes anywhere :( and the guy ends up walking off thinkingI'm not interested, so he doesn't ask for my number.

If he is in college or has a degree, definitely ask what/where he studied/studies, not only does this open the conversation easily, it shines light on values and interests. If not college, ask about work... As a female you should not be afraid to suggest a get together, even if you leave it up to him to directly ask. If you find he is interested in an activity, say Kayaking, you can say "I have never done that or haven't done that in a long time... we should totally go sometime", simply suggest it and show legitimate interest in making it happen, if he is interested and shy he may take a little convincing to be sure you are sincere before he goes out on the limb and actually asks you.
Ask for his number or give him yours, and tell him you will be expecting a call to set up a time to go kayaking etc. You really have to be direct and obvious that you are interested, otherwise he may take too much ruminating about whether you really want to see him again, the more time that passes trying to work up the courage/reason to call, the more silly he will feel calling due to the time that has passed dwelling on whether/when to call.
Be bold, this will show sincere interest... take his phone and enter your number yourself, I always love it when a girl is willing to do this, it shows confidence and personality.
Say "Let me give you my number, where's your phone?" when he pulls it out, you can just grab it out of his hand or simply say "Here, just let me do it" and hold your hand out.
Hope this helps!0
