    I've never actually tried it

    yet though. I don't know where to start if ever, and the idea is just alien to me. but it figures if I can't have a face to face date, an online one can work with the same purpose.

    The First Step

    I wonder how it is...

    Would it work if I tried? Would I meet someone? I'm way too shy to be "flirting" with girls or something like that, so that sounds like a good option. And also I've never had a date in my life, so I don't know how all of that "world" works. So I'm going slowly, just trying...
