Off course that you have to be attracted to someone for love, but love can happen even otherwise too,life is not that simple
I've just tried to encourage you to go with the flow without some deep thinking. Actually to avoid thoughts like you have just posted: hard questions on love, attraction etc...
Couple of us tried to tell you that no matter if something is called "date" or whatsoever that should be fun and you are in charge there, so you (and other person too) are the one who is deciding would that be just small talk,¨opportunity to get know someone new or would you bee trying and asking for something more. Don't be pushy expecting too much. Let it easy, let that be just something like long coffee break. And if someone ask you, just tell that you have been at date
. One date usually doesn't relate to love questions, there has to be more of those
You need any experience to get some boost of your self worth, try to think like that!
I was on several dates like that with girls that weren't attractive to me, but we went out and have some good time. One or two those fell in love and asked for something more and I wasn't experienced enough to see that. We were repeating those dates and those girls become very pushing to me and at the end we had to split. So if you will find some girl unattractive just try to avoid spending time with her further and that would be message....
Please shut off those worries
