Ok remember I said I would come back here and post the results of whatever happened when I finally talked to this broad again, and here it is.
Remember the date was Saturday March 22. I sent her one text when I got home after the date, about 11:30 pm. Nothing. Sent her another text at about 4:30 pm the next day. Still nothing. Posted a message on the dating site Monday afternoon. Again nothing. I tried to call her about 8:45 pm during halftime of the OSU basketball game on Thursday, no answer, got voice mail, did not leave a message. No attempts to contact on Friday or Saturday. Tried to convey by no contact that I didn't give a sh1t, but come on. Some kind of message saying whatever is just common courtesy right?
Since it had been a week on Sunday, and because it was Easter, I decided to go all-out nuclear text commando on this bitch. Nothing to lose right? I planned to unleash a barrage of texts, each spaced 5-7 minutes apart from the next, except for some at 15 minutes where noted. I had a total of 43 texts ready, each segment getting more aggressive (but not angry). I was going to keep sending them until I got some kind of response, and at that point didn't care what it was. Just something.
I should mention that during this week I did finally realize what went wrong on the date. I spent too much time building rapport, and not enough (or none) building sexual tension. We had so much in common, that's where I spent all my time. (Thanks TheDuke) Needless to say, that won't happen again.
She finally responded after my 18th text, asking me to (of course) “please stop texting” her. She did explain that she met an “acquaintance” at lunch in a restaurant the very next morning after our date, and that they “went out”. No apology, no “we had fun but sorry no connection”, nothing else. Was that the real story? Probably but who cares. I had gotten her worked up prior to our date and didn't close the deal, leaving it open for that guy. I told her good luck, and that I hoped it worked out.
In case anyone is interested, below are the 18 texts and the times I sent them. Like I said I had a total of 43 ready but I'll leave those off for now

Anyway thanks for your help guys! I'm already way past this.
