Rejection x's 2

I feel really dumb.  I tried to pursue this guy I thought was amazing and I think I weirded him out.  No, I know I weirded him out and now he won't talk to me.  It's been so long since I've been in a relationship, thought of being in a relationship, or wanted to have anything to do with a relationship since my last one ended in physical abuse, lying, and well ... just not good.  I just want to make friends, more than anything.  But all these guys say, "I have a girlfriend".  What do I care?  And they say, "I don't think she'd like that", meaning us hanging out.  What is wrong with hanging out with a friend that happens to be a girl?  :(  I feel unattractive, unwanted, and depressed.  I'm 23.  I want to move on with my life.  But I can't keep taking these rejections.  I've even gone so far as joining e-harmony.  I don't have a problem with sites like that, but you'd never see me actually paying for it.  But I did!  And that was rejection number one.  He was so cool.  I was really falling for him.  I know no one can do anything about this and I don't want any advice, but soothe my mind and remind me I'm not the only one that's been rejected.

Trust me, I'm not trying too hard.  This is a big jump considering my history with relationships, trust, shyness, social ineptitude, etc.

Do you have girlfriends? Do you ever meet guys that are not in committed relationships? I bet the instant you quit dwelling on it, someone will walk your way. Be patient, you are still very young.
