Before discovery asexuality, dating was never a reality for me. I didn't think I could enjoy being in an intimate relationship with someone. I decided that I wanted to finally start dating, but I realized that I never actually learned how to.
I can't flirt, and I don't enjoy it. I'm very intellectual, not great with emotions. I'm incredibly reserved, and very controlling of how much I open myself up to people, if at all. And, I prefer to listen to people talk than to talk about myself.
Basically I can't date. I've tried online dating, but have had no success yet.
