How do I get a date?

I'm not going to do anything sexual immediately. I don't understand dating though. How do I even get one? How do I know if a guy is interested? I feel like those might be stupid questions, but it is not obvious to me if someone is interested and while I'm outgoing, I'm not particularly bold at this time. I don't mind initiating either, it's just been awhile.
