Find a Conversation

So a woman contacted me through IM a couple days ago. We had a good conversation for about 20-25 minutes. Our profiles matched up. So I asked her out. Right about that time I make some stupid keyboard typos and make a comment like "sorry, I'm a little quick on the draw". To which she gave a strange reply, along the lines that she could make a comment about that but she'll leave it. Her comment was made in a way that I thought she was not talking about my typing ability. For various reasons after that we did not go out.
Like I said I'm new to this, so I don't know if people IM for a while, or call each other up or what before asking for a date. Most of the dates I've been on are with people I knew for a while, not through a dating service.
It got me thinking, was she saying I was too quick to ask her out...or not quick enough (there may have been openings earlier in the conversation)?
Women --- Is there a rule of thumb or preference for how long before asking for a date on this type of service?
