When will she feel ready?

I am a young 62 but I seem to have met stalemate with a wonderful woman I know through work. Three years ago I lost my wife of 37 years and never thought I would love someone again, but I do.

Her husband died last January. About three months ago I plucked up courage and asked her out for a meal. She said 'in a while'. Then last week I asked her again and she replied 'it's still a bit too early'.

I have fallen in love and I want to spend the rest of my life with her. If I keep pushing she might totally reject me. But I cannot leave it. I want her so much. Am I being selfish?
