Derek for god sake went through the pain of having to be yet again seduced and lied to from another female, Jennifer this time, after what Kate did to him. Knowing that he just experienced yet another traumatic relationship which nearly left his pack dead (rings a bell, where his entire family died because of a girl) is hard enough for Derek to trust any female again.
And now, Kate’s back. His past. His mistake. His nightmare. is back. You would think being held captive for months being tortured by your “ex-lover” who killed your family would be psychologically traumatising for him to even feel the need to be with someone.
Jennifer + Kate all in a couple of months = Derek is not ready to have a love interest.

Derek needs to face Kate, stop being scared from her and feel vulnerable. He needs to face her, fight her and end it all. He needs to let go of that mistake, he needs to grow out of the pain she inflicted upon him and the pain that Jennifer brought along as well.
Being asexual is like being born without a sense of smell but everywhere you go people are spraying perfume in your face and when you ask them to stop and tell them it’s irritating and you can’t smell the perfume anyway they get huffy and respond with “Don’t lie to me; I can clearly see you have a nose. Everybody has a nose therefore everybody smells things and besides maybe you just haven’t found the right scent yet.” and then you want to scream
