question about female psychology.. sorta

Hi,
I am in an interesting scenario and need some a female perspective. I met this woman at college. For the purposes of this post, we will call her “Karen.” I have known her for a little over a month and a half. Originally we just talked casually. Then I get the perception that she has taken an interest in me after finding out another student she may have liked is a self-professed slob. Here is an attempted synopsis: I helped her with her technical work and took a business card photo of her for the insurance company she is working for. She sent me a subsequent email saying “thank you very much for all you do for me” she is 50 and I am going to be 36 in a few months. I did not draw anything from that comment originally and was not sure if I should. Then a few days later she calls and asks how I am and then hangs up after we say goodbye. The conversation was less than 2 minutes which I found odd. Then yesterday she called and we chatted a little longer because I wanted to sort of sound her out in terms of her intentions. Then today comes. We go to college on the same day for one part of the week. In a playful yet somewhat distressed tone, she asks why I haven’t called her. I had no idea she was interested in me in this sense and am getting the impression that she is. I sort of chuckled yet listened to her because I wanted to hear her perspective. When she invited me to McDonald’s with her, she asked if I wanted to come along for the ride and said “I don’t bite. But I nibble. I don’t think that would bother you” and I chuckled.
I am normally an introvert who just focuses on my academic and career goals. And I figure if a chick shows interest then great. If not then that’s fine too. But from what you gals know so far, is it fair to say she is interested in me? And if so, how do I proceed? Or shall I play it by ear? If you have any questions then please ask. I will try to fill in the blanks. But I did not want to bloviate.

thanks for the thoughtful advice. the generation gap doesnt bother me in the sense that our college majors are similar and we have both traveled the world. she to eurpoe and me to asia. but your advice made a lot of sense.

thanks
