She drunkenly sent me a nude picture and told me that she liked me and wanted me to come over. Being sober and a good person I didn't because I knew she was just drunk and wanting to rebound from her ex. But when she was sober she felt embarrassed and told me even though she was drunk she actually felt that way.
So about 6 months later, she help me get over my ex but she however finally told me that she is still in love with hers. But she doesn't want to be with him anymore but still feels the attachment. I've noticed that she is slowly getting over him and moving on. But it's hard for her and she stated that she is not ready for a serious relationship yet. Her and I had been sleeping together lately, going on dates, she even gets upset when I wanna go home and don't stay the night all the time. She also gets EXTREMELY jealous about me.
Her ex was her best friend before they started dating which she now says I am, she told me tonight "This can't go south. Your literally my best friend. I can't live without you." We hang out everyday and the strange thing is that her ex and I's situation with her is nearly identical (he was her best friend, hung out with her everyday, waited a year for her while she was with her ex-ex.)
So a fear of hers is that she doesn't want to ruin the friendship. But at the same time she has confessed love for me. I can see where she is coming from but I still wanna give it a chance but I don't wanna rush it or push her. She told me she likes me for who I am as a person and I'm sexy and all that biz but the thing she hate about her ex is that he, drinks, and smokes. I do neither, and he has even beat her in the past (he has anger problems) and I would never strike a woman (especially after what my mother has been through).
So what do you guys make of this? What do you suggest? I mean if someone else comes along I'll give them a chance but I would really like to be with this girl. I know I'll have to wait but what are you suggestions?

It is a complicated issue and the only thing you have to keep in mind right now is- give space to the two of you. Don't push this girl into anything, don't make her sad by expecting too much at this stage. You two enjoy each other and have fun, you are friends- what can be better? Stay around, make sure she can always rely on you, make sure she feels loved and protected. If you do this, the love and warmth that you give to her will make her forget her past experiences. Just be patient and loving if you really want to be an item with her.
