Constant rejection is making me want to give up

I'm a 24-year-old male who's had sex once in the past year.
It's not that I'm not approaching women: I've approached loads, who I've met either through mutual acquaintances, or at gigs, or at social gatherings, or online. I get dates, but can almost never get past the first one.It's not that I don't take care of myself. I lift 3 times a week and watch what I eat. I wash and keep clean. It's not that I'm dim or dull. I have a master's degree from what is considered to be a top university. I also have several side interests.It's not that I'm self-centred. I typically try to get the girl to do most of the talking and will get genuinely interested in her.I feel like giving up and calling an escort - there's only so much rejection I can handle, I've lost all motivation to approach anyone else.Can anyone here relate to this?

If you constantly approach women, it makes you come across as desperate. It also depends how you're going about it. Approaching someone at a gig, for me, is just strange.

That's a normal amount of time not to have sex, it's not odd. Even though you said you get the girl on the date talking and your interested the way you've worded the rest of your post seems like your end goal is just sex, that sex is the ultimate goal.
This really just sounds like a case of you've just not the right person. Plus maybe sit yourself down and really think what kind of affection it is you want sex with a deeper emotional connection or just sex.

Either way I think you need a brake from dating if it's getting you this down.

Sorry, that was a typo. I meant to write that I'm *not* self-centered.
