    First Date Etiquette

    So, I had a first date tonight. I am somewhat new to all of this. I had met this girl off of an online dating site, asked her out and tonight we met at a restaurant/bar and had a beer.

    To be honest, it went 100x better than I expected. We had great conversation. That beer lasted 3 hours. She was more attractive than I had expected (her profile pics didn’t do her justice.) I did not expect to find myself so intrigued, but I am.

    After arriving home, I texted her to thank her for a great time. She responded in kind.

    Now, I am contemplating (and looking for advice on) where to go from here. I would really like to ask her out again, but am unsure how to approach this. How long should I wait before contacting her? Should I have asked for a 2nd date before the 1st date was over? What is the etiquette?

    Do I seem overzealous if I ask her out again tomorrow? Should I wait a few days?
