Would you find yourself attractive and worthy of dating?

If I was another person, he (I) better hope I give him the time of day.
IRL I'm awkward and passive. Get to know me a little; I'm a pretty big nerd, and unashamed of it. If I like someone, I will show interest, put in the time, and pay attention to detail, albeit lacking any directness.
As the other person, I imagine it to be a grueling experience because of how confusing he would be. Getting to know what he's into or not wouldn't be difficult, he's pretty open. But getting to know the real him would be tricky.
e. g. Is he this nice to everyone or just me? Why does he take interest in me but doesn't even ask me out? How do I know if he's just trying to get into my pants?
Reading what I just wrote, I realize that I am what I dislike most about dating in the modern world, plausible deniability. The mindset that unless you come out with it, you could still deny it. I can see the duality in every interaction between two people: intent (of the person doing it) and reception (of the other person). I know that proper communication is key to dispelling any misinterpretations, but I just can't seem to apply it.

I don't swing that way but... would I date a male version of myself?
Of course. I know I'm not perfect and do have some things to work on in terms of how I handle relationships but I'm aware of that and always look at it as a 'work in progress'. I like to think that I'm pretty selfless and never do things with ill intentions so.. yeah. I think I'd get along pretty well with myself. 👌0
