It might be that you will one day become a priest, but maybe not as quickly as you imagined. Discernment might include dating and seeing if God calls you to another vocation. But the experience of wholesome chaste Christian dating would be a good experience for a priest, should you continue on your course.
I had four brothers in the seminary about 40 years ago. My mother said that they were sent home for the summer with a special request not to “fraternize” in any way with females and to keep the company of males only. Well, that made my mother very angry: “How are they going to be good shepherds to ALL of God’s flock if they can’t be around females?” she complained. But she let them comply with the seminary’s edict.
And now none of my brothers are priests. I don’t know if that was part of the problem but I think my mom had the right idea. The priesthood or convent is not an escape from the opposite sex. You better know the world and not be hiding from it. I do not mean “know” in the biblical sense but know something about humans.
Your discernment would benefit by dating a few nice Catholic girls, too. My sister went to her Senior Prom with a seminarian and he is now a monsignor and he is a good one. I hear he goes into bars and pulls out the married parishioners who are drinking too much, and puts them in a taxi and sends them home. He is a tough, solid man. And my sister will always treasure that she went to a prom with a Monsignor-to-be…
One priest has told me, “I was not very good in the dating and relationship department. I didn’t understand how to be close.” But he is a very good priest who is close to his parishioners. He has never looked back. He knows he wasn’t meant for marriage. He was meant for the priesthood.
I think you should try to date and see what it is like, including how difficult it can be. I strongly suggest you have a close counsel or friend or relative who will steer you correctly.
