Hi, as long as she is being truthful with you and staying in touch, the best advice would be to talk about the future and how you are looking forward to it with her in your life. I wouldn't wait forever but it sounds as though her prior relationships weren't good. If she has issues with trust that may be preventing her from wanting another relationship. She may be afraid of her feelings and doesn't want to get hurt again. So, reassurance from you that you are trustworthy and honest would help. It is now March, talk to her about that and tell her you want to be truthful and that 3+ months is pretty long. You have to decide and then tell her how long you will wait. Not fair to you to be in this limbo either.
