Hello my name is Angela.
I am more than happy to assist you with your questions by giving you my honest and respectful opinion.

Your female friend is more than likely still grieving and dealing with the loss of her husband committing suicide (-regardless of whether it was a happy or unhappy marriage) which is probably why she can not commit to you on any level at the moment. She will need to go through the stages of grief before she is able to be fully available in another relationship. Click here to read more about the stages of grief. I think that you should give her more time and continue to enjoy your relationship in its current state. If you choose to move on you could be missing out on the best woman for you, therefore, you could choose to give her more time and then at a later time you could also choose to move on if she is still not ready to commit.
