(re)met the daughter of a family friend last weekend at a wedding. We hadn't seen each other since we were 6 or 7 and she is two years younger than I am. The challenge--spent three hours together, live 600 miles apart, and I can't stop thinking about her. A few more details, but the question is "How can I see if this has potential to go somewhere?"

I'm mid 20s, for reference.
We've become facebook friends and I sent her a message just mentioning how it was great to see her and her family. She replied two days ago. I replied several hour later, but no response from her.
I followed up my initial message with a more direct statement of wanting to see her again, somewhere/somehow. It didn't read as desparate, I think.
Do I wait this out? I feel like I'd be pretty upset with myself to let this go too many days weeks longer. I'd like to just chat with her on the phone and get to catch up more, but how do you get to that awkward stage?
Any thoughts or reassurances?
