Basically I met a girl on eharmony. I think I like her. I called her on Tuesday for the first time and we talked for and hour and 45 mins. The convo ended because she had to get to bed. Then Wednesday, I called her to ask her out. It ends up she out of town for this weekend, but we made plans to go out for dinner next Thursday. We also talked for about 45 min on the phone, and we said goodbye.
It sort of feels weird talking to her, and getting along, but not going to see her for a whole week. I'm tempted to text her a little, but I also don't want to come off as overbearing. I was thinking of just a small text tonight. And maybe a joke tomorrow before she leaves for the weekend, and maybe call her next week.
Any advice. I don't know how internet dating works.

From my experience with internet "anything," sweetie, you are talking to your "star pupil" here.
Three years ago, my husband now, found me on FB, fell in love with me, and asked me to marry him. Believe it or not, he lives in Egypt, so in 2011, I flew out, where I lived with him and his Egyptian family for 30 days. It went so well, I returned to him in 2012, where we tied the knot, and thence forth, I stayed that time for 3 months. Once I was home, we communicated as much as we both could allow, due to the big time difference, and being our lives are quite filled, it wasn't every day, but still we did --and still do---find time for love and romance through Skype and Yahoo as well as FB. This year, I am flying back out to visit him either in Egypt, or Dubai, where he is currently in the process of obtaining a work permit for a year.
During our 3 year relationship, and nearly 2 years of marriage, we have had many ups and downs, for not because of the internet, but because of long distance. But with love and perseverance, comes the open lines of communication, and in order to maintain a relationship such as "internet dating," this is how it works.
No, I don't think you would "come off as overbearing " at all, sweetie. Go ahead and text her a little something tonite. If I were her, I would be smiling from ear to ear, as it is hard, online and off, to find a guy who even gives one iota about doing this. Keeping the lines open is important, as I said, and with every "push of the button,"will enable you both to get even more acquainted before the "big nite"...I'm not joking..:))xx1
