Okay, what I suggest you do is start a friendship, just a friendship. As time goes on, you get to know her well enough and then you may ask her out, but ask her out to something simple, say a casual lunch or dinner. If all goes well, then you can keep asking her out and things will escalate to a point where you two are for all intents and purposes, inseparable. Dating becomes infinitely more meaningful from where it is an "oh, it's nice to see you here" bit to a "I think you are meant for me and I for you" dogma.
But all of that is just my suggestion to you. Just don't forget, become her companion, but discretely, do not, I repeat, do NOT, force yourself to be her friend or anything else.
