Why do girls say they'd date me then turn me down when I do?

ArcaneAntilogy
Almost every girl that I've known has described me as "perfect boyfriend material," and most of them have told me that they'd date me, but when I'd ask them out, they'd say something along the lines of "I don't want to hurt you" or "you deserve someone better." What gives?

I understand they'd probably rather have me as a friend and they're just saying things like that to make me feel better, especially since I'm really insecure about that kind of stuff because of how many people have asked me out as a joke before.
