I got it all. There is a big hole in this whole story. You have not asked her about pursuing a relationship, if she is over her ex (which she has to be with all this contact) or what she is looking for in a relationship right now. You have spent a lot of time guessing. She isn't spending all of this time with you because she hates you. Just find a starting point (depends on what she is looking for) and go for it. You both like each other. What's the problem? Don't be scared. Open up a discussion about everything you want to know. If she wants a responsible person, be a responsible person. Stop wasting any more time. She lets you around her son - that's a big flag that says I like you. Work out the perimeters and start there. You have a chance to be in a relationship that has a history. Most don't get that chance. You will kick yourself if you don't pursue this soon. I wish you the best

At this point, what would you suggest is the best way to bring this up.
I'm thinking of asking her to dinner, just me and her and after dinner go for a walk and tell her how much i like spending time with her and her and her son and that I really like her and care for her. I don't want to rush things but I just thought she should know how I feel. Idk if i just say i'm not sure what you are exactly looking for but I felt I should tell you how I was feeling.
Then depending on her reaction let her have some space to think about it but hopefully she will say she feels the same.
Does that sound like a good plan or what is your suggestion??
