One night stand aftermath?

What do *You* do/what are your thoughts after having an "amazing" one night stand with someone you met through an online dating site? I put that adjective in quotes because maybe I'm the only one who thought so...

I know, I know. I shouldn't be sleeping with a dude the first date/night and expect ANYthing afterward. I think after doing this a handful of times, I'm quicker to get over the disappointment, the frenzy, and I'm able to just delete them out of my phone and know with almost 100% certainty they're never going to contact me.
I'd like to know if there's a common reaction amongst MeFi-tes after you've had a one night stand. I talked to this guy on OkCupid, we met up, we clicked, drank one too many and suddenly I find myself doing the walk of shame the next morning.
The sex was fabulous and frequent. He seemed to be enjoying it, I definitely did. I set my alarm because I needed to leave with a quickness for work and sent him a quick "had a nice time, let's hangout again" text. He responded in agreement. I've been trying to set up another meeting and he's being vague.
I'll get over that. I just want to know from your own personal experiences what this is all about. Is it that you think if they can sleep with you on a first date, they're probably doing it with other people? Was the sex just not that great? Are you worried they're thinking things are more serious because you had sex? Are you disappointed this person seems to have just wanted to sleep with you/someone instead of going on a run of the mill first date? Are you over it because there was no chase, no effort needed?
I'd love your perspective.
