I'm 20 now, but I've always been a very nervous, shy, etc., person when it comes to romance or sex-related things. I can talk with women as friends, and even if I'm interested in them, I can still talk to them mostly alright, but I can never gather the courage to ask a girl on a date. If I do gather up that courage, and end up in love with her down the road, then I fear I'd be unable to make a move of any sort. What should I do? Should I search for women who are aggressive?

You might be interested in reading a thread by a male user who went through this exact problem you described and eventually overcame it. :)

As a girl, I'd say that if you wanted to ask someone out, to go for it, because people ask me out all the time; sometimes I say yes, and sometimes I say no, but I don't really think anything bad about the people I turn down, usually we never meet again anyway. And half the time, I say no, I just do it because I'm not in the mood. Not because I think there is anything bad about the person asking, he could be a great guy for all I know. Also, to increase your chances of a yes, get to know the person a little bit better. The more conversations I've had with a person and the more comfortable I feel around them, the more likely I will say yes. So go for it man, :0) You only live once.
