So I had a date with this gorgeous girl last Saturday. We started off great, I took her to this retro 50s diner. She loved the place when we got in. So we started talking and we were awkward at first, but we loosened up after a while. I wasn't being overly interested or came off too strong. I really like her allot. And I think she was having a great time with me because she was genuinely laughing. You know she was laughing with her eyes, and was really interested in me. So we had dinner, we both liked it, not a problem. So I asked her if she had plans later that night, she said "no, but I have to get back cause my mom wants me to get back early", mind you she's 18, and I'm 23. So alright..no prob. We left the place, gave each other a very nice hug, and she said I should text her. So we both did afterward. Saying how we both enjoyed it, made her laugh, said night to each other and all that. So the next evening I sent her this "How's your evening, would like some wine?".. and now I haven't had a reply from her yet. Don't tell me she's playing hard to get. I know you girls are always glued to your phone. There was some good chemistry going on you know. I seem like her type. I mean we were going off like we already knew each other for like ten years. I kept it cool, I was confident, she was relaxed in my presence and I saw a sparkle, we got these mouth fresheners afterward, and I kept throwing them out the little bowl, and she kept putting em back.. teasing I guess. What's the next step? This is second date potential I believe. She also couldn't really keep eye contact with me, so maybe she thinks I look good to her? I dunno.

You are over analyzing this. First, you think she is gorgeous and you really like her, so that would have come across as much as you think you were looking pretty laid back. Then you asked her if she had plans later that night. Nothing about the question was a good idea.
First dates can be all this and more and still amount to nothing. A lot of people can have fun with someone that they really don't see as relationship material. That is kind of a problem in the world of dating because we think a great first date equals a second date. It just does not.
So, now, you followed up with a silly question instead of calling her and asking her out for a second date. Who knows, maybe she will get back to you, but if she does, cut all this silliness out and ask her out for a second date. I think it is great to tease and have fun on dates, but the guy needs to have an edge of seriousness in his interest in a girl or you won't get far.
