So decided to try the online dating thing again. This time, I’m only using an account with OkCupid, which allows me to identify as demisexual.
So far, I have found a few people that interest me, if for nothing more than a conversation. There are still a few people who message me just for sex. I ignore them. Unfortunately, I am afraid of messaging people first. I think this dilemma has caused a block. I’m not sure what to say. I don’t want to say “Hey” and nothing else. That’s not going to get people to respond. I’ve also had some trouble keeping a conversation going after they respond with something like “Cool”, “great”, or “wow”. What am I supposed to say after that?
I want to meet more people, and I’m grateful that I can now declare my sexuality on a dating site, but how is this going to work out?
