I met a girl at an event and was given her email by the event hostess. I sent the initial email and she replied that she was out of town for the weekend but she her cell number. I called the next day and left a voice mail message and she called me back shortly thereafter. It turns out that we had some things in common and live relatively close to each other so we were looking to set something up later in the week. I told her that I'd call her in the next few days, once she gets back from the long weekend to put something together.
Given the different way this has happened, I'm wondering whether dinner is too early for the first official date. Any thoughts?
