I thought only confidence mattered... should I stop hitting on girls who might shoot me down and only go for girls I know I might be able to get?

Who's to say who you can get? I once fancied a guy who I thought was waaaay out of my league, a while later we dated. Confidence is important but don't get cocky, not a lot of girls like that.
Yes, you will get rejected, we all get rejected, that's life. But before you step up to a girl, make sure you get a little vibe from her. When she looks at you quite often from across the room, smiles, winks, ...
Then it's a sign to go up to her and chances will be slimmer you'll get turned down.2
