I like a girl online, do I wait?

My friends encouraged me to start dating online. At first, I was hesitant because of the typical things you hear from others but I decided to give it a go. After all, I had nothing to lose. Thatís how I met Ericka on LoveMe. Sheís a really amazing girl with a mind so smart that it makes you want to talk to her all the time.

Weíre not dating yet but I do like her a lot. I feel like she likes me too but I can never be too sure, right? I donít know what the customs are in Costa Rica. Iím not sure if sheís waiting for me to tell her or sheís just trying to figure things out between us too. Iím not being subtle about how I feel. I throw sweet words here and there once in awhile.

Should I just set the record straight and tell her upfront that I like her and I want to be with her or do I just wait? Is it okay if I tell her? If so, how do I do that? How do I say I like her but if she doesnít like me Iím not forcing her. What are the dating customs in Costa Rica?

I really need help. I donít know what to do. Iím afraid she might only think of me as a friend if I donít sort things out sooner. I like her and I want to be with her. Please advice.
