Most Helpful Opinions
Sounds like you got the thumbs up from this interviewer.
So you're likely moving to the next stage of interviews.
However, it's not guaranteed. If the other candidates beat you out, you may also get a call to inform you that they won't be moving forward.
It's an encouraging sign, but not a commitment.
Follow up later with a thank you, and in three days if you don't hear from HR by then.
I'd say celebrate the small win, but don't count your chickens before they hatch.1
It sounds neutral to me since she did not guarantee a future interview. I think her sweetness is for PR purposes and not an expression of interest.0

That sounds like a good sign0
The only opinion from guys was selected the Most Helpful Opinion, but you can still contribute by sharing an opinion!
Sorry, I would have to say "no." While I was not in your interview and therefore cannot judge the dynamics, it is pretty much standard fare for the low level HR people to say the kinds of things that were said to you.
To be sure, you can safely assume that your resume will be passed on, along with the interviewer's notes. However, now is when the real decision making begins. If the next person up the food chain says essentially the same things to you, then you can assume that you are on your way.
Until then, the lower level HR people are paid to encourage all candidates. In that way keeping you optimistic and of a favorable mindset about the company. That way, if you DO hear from the people up the food chain, your performance will be enhanced, this reflecting well on the recommendation from the lower level people.
Trust me. I've been there.
Still all the same, here's wishing you the best of luck. I can honestly say that I hope I am wrong and that your optimism is warranted. Good luck.
