I hope that you guys bear with me for a minute while I explain my story and situation. It all started about 4 years ago...
In the fall of 2008 I went to broadcasting school. One of the people in my class was a girl, let's call her "T." From the moment I first saw her, I knew that T was extremely beautiful. However, I never thought we would really get along that well. At first glance, I thought we would have nothing in common. But a few months into the class, I found that I was wrong and that she and I had tons in common. We hung out some and had tons of fun together.
Our time together at broadcasting school ended and I thought that that would be the end of our friendship. So you can imagine my surprise when we kept on hanging out outside of class. Then, in the summer of 2011, I got a text from her telling my that she was pregnant. She told me that a guy at her work had gotten her pregnant, that she wasn't going to get an abortion, and that he wanted nothing to do with her or the kid. She wound up having her son on Christmas Eve. I've seen her quite a few times so far this year, and we talk quite a bit. We still have tons in common, and I've come to realize that I have very strong feelings for her and her son.
I recently officially asked her out on a date, and her response was, "It's funny you bring that up, because it feels like we've kinda been on dates already." On top of that, a few years ago on New Years Eve she told me that we should get married since we have so much in common. I realize that the New Years Eve text she sent me was a drunk text, but do you guys think there was any truth behind it? Also, do you guys think I should take her comment about us "already dating" as a good sign or not?
I really do care about her and would never hurt her. I can picture, in my mind's eye: me, her, and her son all together and being extremely happy. It's something that I want more than I can say. I'm hoping some of you moms (maybe specifically single moms) can give me some advice about what I should do. If I should tell her about the feelings I have I have for her or not.
The reason I'm posting this here, is because I would like to get the opinion of mothers out there.
