Three months ago I started spending a lot of time with a girl. We'd get dinner 4-5 nights a week or just hang out together for hours. About a month in, I asked if she'd like to go on a "date." She said she wasn't sure and would think about it. I thought I wouldn't see her for a while, but she called the next day to get dinner. So I thought she was interested in dating. We never kissed, I'm a little shy, but we did couples activities and were mistaken as a couple a few times. Last week I brought up dating again, she said she liked me but just came out of a four year relationship that was pretty bad. She had ended it about five moths ago. Right now we're keeping our space a little because I really like her and she's not ready for a relationship. Is it alright for me to ask her out again in some time or do I let her come to me when she's ready? I'm a little afraid she might not tell me she's ready for a relationship because she has a history of bad boys and I'm no bad boy.

This is tricky in its own way because to be frank, she might have hung out with you on a "date" as a rebound. Now, there could be chemistry between you too, but I would not try to force it or push it upon her. Instead, give her a call/text/however you message her, and ask her how she's doing. See what she's up to, let her know that her happiness is your concern, and be a support. You may get friend zoned, you may not. Time will tell.2
