At a friend's birthday party, I met this amazing girl. She had accompanied one of the guests at the bash. I found her to be nice and we hit it off well. By the end of the bash, we had exchanged cell numbers. I called her two weeks ago and invited her to a coffee outlet. She agreed and we just could not stop talking. Ever since we have been SMSing each other and calling at least twice in a day. Both of us are working at different ends of Mumbai so we can only meet on the weekends. Is this enough at this stage? I am already thinking of her as a girlfriend.

At this stage, once a week is just apt. The more time both of you spend together, the more comfortable you will be with each other. You could go out for lunch/dinner together but needn't be expensive places as you have to pay the bill. You could also suggest a film or even go for a stroll together at a park or on the beach. As you get to know her, you will know her likes and dislikes, so accordingly plan the outing. But at this stage go slow, don't make her feel that you want to be with her. Only after a few months of being with her, think of taking the relationship to the next level.
