I grew up in a conservative family/school system where talking with girls is seen as a crime. Spent over 20 years without having a good friend as a girl. Now I see a girl as a price that can be collected if you are willing to sacrifice, put some effort and eventually turn her into a girlfriend. I am taking it too personally if I get ‘no’ (for going out to eat/watch a movie or other silly stuff) as an answer. How do I get over this distorted view and act normal?
Need some serious suggestions. It is destroying me from inside.
