I’ve never understood the way people date. They like think somebody looks good or things then to be funny or something and then ask them out without really knowing much about them? This had confused me already all my life. I also figured out that I am demiromantic and demisexual through this. The only people that I had dated to that point had been two very close friends with which I would text and talk all the time and therefore knew very well. It highly confused me when one of my classmates was telling me that it was normal to go on a date to get somebody know instead of knowing them already.
Please know that you don’t have to rush anything with dating. I personally think it is way much more enjoyable when you know each other already very well (aka have that close emotional bond) since instead of exploring each other’s character and breaking up very soon after, you two can enjoy dates, places, and activities of which you both know that your partner enjoys them.
