Dating a middle aged widower...

Anyone with experience dating a widower? How do you know if they're ready, and are they very warm and flirty and more withdrawn, though still very friendly, another time?

I really like this guy, he's been widowed just over 1.5 years. Sometimes he flirts, other times no, but he always makes time for me and we do spend hours together, happily chatting away. behavior wise he's very sweet, old world manners, and he does remember many little things.

I'll always remain friends with him, but I don't know if I should squash that little kernel of hope that we could be more.
