Angel B.:
Hello all! I'm pretty sure this is in the right place but if it isn't, please move!

I went out on Friday night for drinks and dinner with someone. We met at a bar a couple of nights before and he had asked me if he could buy me a drink. I asked "What do I have to do in return?"(I don't trust people very well) and he said "Let me take you out to dinner". I thought it was pretty gutsy so I gave him my number.

I had a great time, and while I didn't know for sure if it was a real date, I wasn't terribly nervous with him. We did kiss goodnight, and he suggested we get together again. I texted him the next day to say I had fun and good luck playing football(soccer). He texted me back saying he had a good time too and I assume this gives me the green light to see each other again.

My question is, do I wait to hear from him or can I text him asking if he wants to get together again? I don't actually know his name, it was the one thing I could not remember from meeting him the first time. He poked fun at me a bit and said it meant I'd have to go out with him again to learn it. Would it be appropriate to text him and ask "Oh so can I have a chance to figure out your name this weekend" later this week? when is it appropriate to contact again? I don't know if it matters but he's British and I'm American. I haven't been in the dating scene for the last year and a half so I really don't know what I'm doing etiquette-wise.

I think you can definitely text him and joking about the name thing is a cute, flirty way to do it. Have fun!  :D

If it was me, and I had a good time, I would send a text.

I would suggest a date though, not just touch base. Something like:

'Hey stranger. I still need a chance to learn your name! How about Dinner at *insert casual but nice place here* Saturday night at 7?'

That way he can just say yes, or reply with another date and time. it also shows that you are interested as well, he dosen't have to do all the chasing.

I like this a lot. I think it also bypasses a lot of potential confusion. If you just text him to touch base, there might be a lot of coy back-and-forth before you know whether or not it will result in an actual date.

Although, I'm old-fashioned and I would actually call him. :)

cutecupcake:
Depends on how many days it's been since the date. I'd def wait for him to text me within 3 days and if I didn't hear anything then I'd probably send him a flirty text.
