You should find out a bit more about this person before you act, like if he is actually single and looking. Ask him a bit about himself just casually as you serve him. And don't let other people talk you dating if you are happy being on your own for now. You're right that you have lots of time. It's best not to rush into love. Everyone needs to take some time to sort themselves out and figure out what they really want before getting involved in a relationship.
