I've picked a couple of points from your posts that I would like to address. Sorry if this sounds too formal or heavy, but I don't at the moment have that much time on my hands. :)
I can't tell you what kind of person the girl is except that I'm inclined to see her as at least a naive (probably innocently naive) romantic, open, trusting, kind (the last three adjectives are guessing) who may have some idealistic visions of love or even life (not like that's bad of itself--our reality is as good or bad as we are to the extent we can affect it, so e.g. two above-average loving and kind people have every chance to create an above-average loving and kind marriage). I would definitely say she appears to be emotional and sentimental, but I can't tell incredibly much because I don't know what kind of impression she made of you or how justified she was in it (e.g. maybe you're a totally charming guy, so why not appraise you as one?).
So in short, I would be weary of any signs of serious personality problems, careful with what really looks unwarranted or abnormal
I think you're right in appraising her as somewhat naive. I'm a rather intuitive person, and my intuition is often right (even though I rarely listen to it :o), especially as I've learned to appraise people based on a few facts both shared openly and gleaned more subtly, but given her hobbies, education, and manner of dictation, I'd say you're spot on in labelling her as naive, simple, sensitive and sentimental.
As for what you say about not overestimating her loneliness and desperation to find a partner, her statements about me liking her, her trying to find someone and me being the one, and me possibly being her Prince Charming didn't unsettle me at first, even though the nature of the conversation up to those individual comments lended itself to the idea that she's trying really hard to "find a guy"; however, when she said that she was "sad" because of my response to her Prince Charming question, we talked about why she was sad, and she said, "I can't find anyone on here to date," which later developed into, "I want a guy." It was at that point that I postulated that I would hate for this girl to settle on me simply because I've paid her a compliment and some attention. I think I'm a well-written individual and can express my ideas and emotions well in black-and-white type, so no doubt she was likely drawn into this aspect of me as I'm sure it indicated to her that I was indeed interested in talking to her.
The reason why I care for her as I already do is, as I said in my OP, is because I know how she feels, I can relate to her, and where I can relate to her is not only in our shared romantic behavior but also in the loneliness and desperation that we both feel; however, I don't know that I would ever express (READ: complain) to any girl I was remotely *interested in "I want a girlfriend!" To that girl, *or any girl, such a statement reads like, as my concern rightly expresses, whatever comes first is best.
The question which I find myself asking is if I should drop it, or keep chiseling away at conversation with her. Yes, she's thrown up some red flags (right or wrong, in my opinion), but I know that if I drop it prematurely only after one conversation, prior to addressing these issues and really getting into deeper conversation about some fundamentals, as I truly think we began to address last night when I asked her *why *she wanted a boyfriend, then something about that seems both unfair and unreasonable.
I *do *like her already, and I can't ignore that fact nor should I, in my opinion, because it means that for all the red flags, those flags still do not outweigh the intrigue I continue to feel. Only time will tell what happens. If nothing else, I continue to talk to her throughout this week and we meet in-person sometime this weekend and continue to gauge it from there
