Being shy and insecure makes it hard to date, help?

I really would like a relationship or meet someone that I get on with. I do get asked out but always say no or act like I'm not interested because I panic and get scared of actually dating but I don't want to be like that.

Even though people tell me I'm attractive I don't feel pretty, and even though I'm slim I always think I'm fat. I know it's crazy but at times I think who on earth would want to go out with me? and why on earth do guys ask me out?

At times I do feel pretty but I get so shy and insecure around guys I like I feel as though I'm never going to meet anyone which sucks.

Advice? What would you do in my situation?
