About five years ago or so, I was talking to this guy who I met when I was in kindergarten online. We made plans to meet but eventually never did. Last year, I was back in town, so I emailed him to say hi somewhat randomly (after hearing that he told someone to tell me hello, of course) but he didn't seem that excited to hear from me but he gave me his number to call him anyway. I, in return, gave him my number and told him to call/text me if he wanted to but never tried contacting him after that. Almost a year later, with no contact whatsoever, this guy texts me completely out of the blue, insisting that we see each other face to face before the year is through. Now I am kind of unsure what to do and what it is that motivated him to do it. He claims he will show up this time around because he doesn't want to ask himself "what if". I am completely wary of him and I am kind of reluctant to meet up. As far as I'm concerned, he was probably bored shitless why he text me and all this means nothing. But on the other hand, I'm curious. This is a guy that I liked very much, in fact, I still kind of do and I'm convinced that no matter what I decide to do, I'm going to be one who will end up getting hurt all over again. What should I do? Any advice?

Um tell him you want no contact with him period. You sound like a quick and easy target for him on a rebound. Or better yet to trick you into sex. This will get a ton of down votes. Bring two guys friends with you. They do not have to be visable to him. Meet at a restaurant you know is busy. Go Dutch do nothing to imply that you owe him anything after meeting. I would also have your guy friend's sit close enough to over hear the conversation so the can listen for key words that might indicate he is just playing or tricking you into something.
Not having meet the guy before and it taking this long just seems very weird to me. And why would he leave you hanging on the first meeting.3
