Newbie no suction!

Hi everyone.
I'm a menstrual cup newbie,
I am 22, I'm not a Virgin, I have never had children, I have a moderate flow and I do dance and yoga. These traits (according to the lunette size guide) lead me to buying the lunette model 1 for myself.
My problem is that the damn thing won't stop leaking, but when I go to remove it, the cup is nowhere near full! I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong!

When I insert the cup I can feel with my fingers that it is open, and I am able to rotate it... I have noticed though when removing it, I pinch the bottom and pull it out very easily, But I never feel any seal break.
Why is my cup not making a seal?!

Side note:
My cervix is apparently very high, at no point during my cycle can I locate it... How the heck can I know if I'm positioning my cup at the right angle if I don't know where my cervix is?

Please help! I really want to love my menstrual cup but I'm just becoming disheartened.
