How do I get out of the friendzone?

I've become good friends with a girl (6yrs younger than me, she's mid 20s I'm early 30s) who I play hockey with on a co-ed team. I've know her for 2 years and in that time we've enjoyed each other's company as good friends both on and off the ice. She has a great group of girlfriends (and a lot of guy friends too through playing other sports), and I'm privileged to be considered on of her closer good guy friends.

How do I avoid relationship patterns that sink my self esteem?

I have been single for a little while now (about 6 months) and I am thinking about getting back into dating. One thing that is holding me back is a pattern that I am afraid of repeating. To me the cycle looks like this: I am single and start feeling good about myself, I start dating a few men and end up "committing" to one of them fairly quickly. (This would be okay if I was really into that person, but often I'm not. Or not as much as I'd like to be.) Once I start seeing that new person fairly often, I find that I start to feel less good about myself, and I scare myself with talk of how this is as good as it gets and how I won't find anyone better. Eventually the relationship will end and I will feel exhausted and it will take me quite a while to feel "up" to dating again.
