Is it rejection? I have always been very straight forward with people i have been interested in even asking them out myself, even dough its worked out for me i really wasn't scared of rejection since id rather know where I stand that not.

Again, Im talking about people u already know, not strangers on the street, u should not be approaching people randomly on the streets no matter how interesting or good looking they might seem. That goes for both genders.
