Should guys who are constantly rejected even bother to continue to ask out women when they've already done their best to improve?

So i've spent a lot of time trying to improve relations with the opposite sex. I've definitely failed though because i've probably spent thousands of hours with barely any success. It seems like no girl is interested in putting any effort into making things work with me. I don't consider myself pushy; i don't spam texts, i dont ask the girl to hangout everyday, but I make a genuine effort to do things like cooking dinner for her, etc. I don't escalate romantically fast either, because mainly I get a vibe that they're not ready yet--you can usually tell by body language and their proximity to you. Still girls seem completely uninterested romantically, although strangely they do agree to dates which doesn't seem at all consistent.

But after a while I get tired of having to always initaite texts, always initiate dates, always drive the conversation, and always escalate. Escalation always fails with me anyways. After a while I stop with that and give it an entire week, but generally there's still no attempt to reach out from them, which is my que to never talk to them again. For the record I also don't pressure for sex or anything like that unless they seem interested or we've been dating for a while. I've never had any success with these dates. And the same progression just keeps happening over and over again no matter what i do, no matter how much I lower standards.

I'm just so tired of it. Many girls can just sit there with 10 different guys texting them and then pick and choose easy mode. If they want a free dinner and entertainment they can manipulate you into thinking they're interested in you. And then they can just sit back and let you do all the work. If you don't drive the conversation it becomes super awkward. I wish it was more 50/50, but its more like 95/5. Is it the fault of women? No, its my fault, but not entirely.

It looks like a life of lonliness or chasing a bunch of false hopes that have the power of teasing. Either way is depressing. CLearly i don't really have what it takes. Apparently im not a desirable male for whatever reason. Of course evolution never claimed that everyone was guarunteed any reciprocated love. It seems like a complete waste of time--an unpleasant waste of time. Should I just give up at this point honestly?
