Well you've taken the first step and asking and that makes you less of a simp and more of a straight-forward cool dude. Simps are generally considered low self-esteem, the types to never ask and just keep pumping praise onto a girl hoping she somehow takes the first step.
So you're cool mate. What you did is what real men, not simps, do. Being honest and straightforward. Stop calling yourself a simp because you don't act like one. You act like a guy should and if you lay off that selfcriticism and selfdenigrating ideas you'll do fine and seem attractive.
So don't call yourself a simp. You aren't.
