Teenage-phase, the second!
I still feel like a kid.
Suppose I've been out of the "dating" game for about 15 years, I have *no* idea what I'm doing lmfao here's hoping I don't mess this up!
I'm 20 and I feel like I'm less mature and competent then I was when I was 15.
Just enjoy it man. I'm in a similar boat (never dated as a teenager because I found other teenagers too childish for me to be interested in) and one thing I've discovered as a late dater is that women of our age tend to find men who are a little inexperienced at dating refreshing, as long as you don't come off as incompetent a little reserve can be a bigger boon than society would lead you to believe.
Oh I'm not reserved. Ahahaha I'm a crazy outgoing person. I'm just out of practice reading signals XD
They amount to the same thing in this situation. You'll be surprised how much of what you think is you coming off as a clueless buffoon because you 'missed signals' will be seen as reserve that many women find a refreshing change from the guys who have been slipping into women's pants since they were 14 and have it down to an algorithm at this point in their lives if they haven't already been married a decade.
My best dating advice: be genuine. You don't want to be with someone who doesn't enjoy who you really are.
Regarding signals, communicate if you're uncertain. Heck, communicate even if you're quite sure. "Reading signals" is for Hollywood. It's actually very attractive if someone has the maturity to straight up ask you if they can hold your hand/kiss you/etc. The worst you'll hear is "no", and that's way less awkward than the pull-back!
That's what has me so smitten with this lass - I can be totally myself around her and she just gets it. We're craaaaazy alike. We talk totally openly and honestly, and it's just so dayum *nice* not to worry about games or whatever.
