Asking someone out when there's no sign they're interested?

Does it make sense to ask someone out even when there aren't any signs that the other person is interested?

I think I've gotten better at recognizing when women are showing signs of being interested in me. This has led to more success in dating than just asking out women that I like without any of these signs. But I feel like it's been a long time since a girl that I'm interested in in my area has flirted with me or otherwise shown interest in me in this way. Does it make sense to ask out the girls that I like in the hope that they might like me in that way and aren't showing it, or that they haven't considered the possibility and their interest will grow later?
