I began talking to this girl about a month ago...met her through a cousin. I knew going into things that she had just gotten out of a long term relationship and was feeling the typical feelings that one does after a breakup. So basically, I just tried to start getting her out of the house, having some fun, etc. Well, in my mind, she's an absolutely amazing all around person and extremely cute...she has soooo much of what I look for in a girl that it's just scary...so obviously I have grown to like her a bit. As far as her feelings for me, she's obviously scared to get hurt, etc and it is a bit early out of a 3-year relationship (I think theyve been broken up for around 2 months or so). She's really attracted to me and also likes me as a person. The problem comes in that she's obviously still really hung up on her ex boyfriend. It's somewhat understandable being 2 months out of a 3 year relationship, it just puts me in a tough spot as I don't want to get myself extremely hurt over the deal, because I can see myself falling for her. Like I said she does like me, and openly admits it, but she's also still stuck on her ex, and sometimes she's flaky about stuff..but she admits that aspect is there. For example, I asked her if she wanted me to back off a little bit, bc she'll get the occasional peck-kiss...and occasionally give. I used that as an example "want me to stop that kind of stuff?" to where she responded 'well sometimes I really like and it sometimes it just makes me sad and feels weird/different" That's pretty much how the whole thing seems to be. Sometimes she seems very very interested in me, and other times it seems as if she's purposely trying to keep distance from me. She did say that she wants to keep hanging out, but again I know that she is still in love with her ex. I don't want to completely set myself up to get crushed. How should I go about this situation?
