"I've been talking to this guy for about 4 months. Not once has he taken me out on a date. He always just wants to hang out at his place. If we go somewhere, it's just to pick up food. I feel like I'm wasting my time. What do you think?"
He never takes you anywhere because he doesn't care about having a future with you. And since you're already giving him what he wants, he sees no point in putting in the effort to take you out. So, yes, you're absolutely wasting your time.
You need to understand that a man not wanting to take you out is a clear sign he's not into you because he's not investing in you. Taking you out, making you his girlfriend, introducing you to family and friends, making big plans that put you two together months or years from now - those are all signs that a man is investing in you. This dude here is obviously not since all he cares about is getting his.
When a man is not investing in you, he's not interested in any future with you. Sadly, you're pretty much just a booty call for him. I always tell those who are in similar situations, "You need at least two things for a relationship to be successful: Consistency and progress. Otherwise, you're just wasting your time."
There's obviously no progress here. You're basically doing the same shit in month 4 as you were doing in month 1. You need to drop that dude like a bad habit and find you someone who actually wants to invest in you.
