I've known this girl for probably close to 10 years... dated her once for a short period, like 2 months. Had a great relationship, but at the time we both had other agendas. We had and continue to have a fantastic relationship. She does have a kid that is about to turn 5, and shes also been with her current b/f for 4 years or so (he is not the father of her child) The last part is where in lies the problem. Shes been with him for awhile and has totaly turned into a different person then she was - relying on him for everything, when shes always been independant. We hang out, do laundry together, goto the mall w/ her kid, and we have talked about her relationship with her current b/f and shes not happy -- but afraid to leave. I know this situation could turn into a giant mess, and as much as I am tempted, I have been a perfect gentlemen throughout everything... Is there a way to let her know that im going to be there for her and her child if she leaves him? Without crossing that fine line... So do I just continue on the path... see where it goes? She knows how I feel about her, and she definately feels for me... or should I throw a wrench in there, say hey look if you want to be with me lets go for it - and if you arent willing to, well then lets just stay with being the good friends we are and forget about everything else that could be?
