I have no other place to seek advice so I need some generous help.
The Problem: - I am currently living with a girl in an apartment condo. I have lived with her for almost 6 months (in separate rooms), and it was only 2 weeks ago that I started to develop feelings for her. I did not foresee this coming. I thought I would never fall for her since she is an international student and her physical attractiveness is only average.
So last weekend I asked her to go ice-skating with me and some other friends since there was a group discount. She happily said yes and we had a blast. (I did not do much physical flirting with her since I do not want my friends to assume anything.) Anyways, we both enjoyed it very much and laughed a whole lot.
Now, every time I run into her in the kitchen, I feel an urge to always have a conversation with her. (In the past, I would just say "Hey".) I am uncertain what I should be doing at this point or what type of "steps" i should be taking in order to start dating her. I don't want to fall into the friendzone with her but we see each other more than 5x a day. Any advice?
Some extra background about her: 1.) She is an international student but is determined to stay in America after graduation. 2.) She grew up in an Asian culture which is way different than the American culture. (So "American" dating approaches might make things awkward.) 3.) She was friends with her Ex-BF for 3 years before they finally went out, but they only lasted 4 months due to long-distance problems. 4.) As for me, I will be moving to another city for a new job in 3-4 months but she still has another year of schooling here in our current city. (This means long-distance relationship will be required if we do end up dating.)
There is so much to like about her. She makes me happy every time I see her. She is incredibly nice, very considerate of others, respectful, laughs at all my jokes, very patient, smart and fun but kind of shy too.
Falling for my housemate. How to handle the situation? Should I pursue?

I think it is better you try it out and see if it works, if it doesn't at least u tried cause if u don't it will beat u up not knowing the outcome and that's far worse in my opinion.0
