Looking to ask girl out. need help?

so I have this one of a kind coworker, she's kind, smart and a has winning smile... she's literally perfect but she's older than me by a few years (I'm 20, she's like 23-24... I think)... we kinda started working together on a project a few weeks ago and really kinda got to know each other... then the other day we started joking a lot, laughing, I even got the playful punch on the shoulder... so my questions are was that technically flirting and if so, how would you suggest I go about asking her out (how would you want the situation handled personally?)? my pops said to just ask her out as a friend to hang out and get to know her better, then later actually ask her to go steady... but is that how you would want to be asked? should I be direct right off the bat or? (in all honesty, being the perfect woman in my eyes, I'm thinking really long term, so no sex related answers please)
