And how/when do you like to be kissed?
The girl I've been on a few dates with I would say is shy. After the end of the second date I went for a kiss and she moved her face and hugged me tightly instead. After the third date we were outside her house, I got close to her and was looking in her eyes, she looked at mine for a second and then gave me a tight hug before I could do anything.
Is that a bad thing? I feel like I'm just her friend, even though we cuddle and hold hands, play footsie sometimes. The dates go well we're laughing and joking around and have plenty to talk about. I call her pretty, am a gentleman.. but she may just be nervous to kiss me?
How many dates until you expect a kiss, where are you comfortable kissing for the first time, and if shy girls could answer how can I make her more comfortable to kiss her?
And do I run the risk of having her lose interest in me if we don't escalate? I worry that if I don't move things quick enough we'll just stay friends.

In high school, my boyfriend never made a move to kiss me and it ended very quickly. You're right - you do need to make a move or run the risk of being categorized as a "friend". Watch her eyes. If she keeps looking at your lips, then she wants desperately to kiss you. If you're bold enough, you may even try asking her, "May I kiss you?" No matter what the answer, at least you'll know where you stand. If she's shy, she'll give you a bashful, "Yes." If she's not interested, she'll tell you so.
Best of luck!1
