I met a guy online.. Advice please?
I met a guy on a dating site, he's 8 years older than me, which isn't a problem for me. He's been married once and has 2 kids. He's incredibly handsome, and has been very respectful to me. We've swapped photos, we text and have talked on the phone once. We have been chatting for about 2-3 weeks now and we've both mentioned how we'd love to meet. He has such a fantastic sense of humor, i love people who makes me laugh, not to mention we have the same sense of humor, like creepy jokes too soon.. lol. Though the only cons I can think of is he's one) an inch shorter than me 2) he lives in a different state. Now we're only about 4-4.5 hours away from each other... but that's still a good hop and skip. Granted my ex was 1.5hrs from me, at one point 2.5 and we made in 2 years. But I'm nervous about traveling that far to meet someone, I do own a gun and pepper spray lol but I don't think I'd need to use either.. I say id travel bc I've always wanted to go to a certain area of the state he lives in, I live in the middle of nowhere with nothing close by lol. Also, about his humor.. we had just swapped phone numbers close to Thanksgiving and I texted him, i got a reply, then a message from another number asking why I was texted her husband.. and they had 5 kids together... then I got a pic of a woman, a man and him.. saying they were his extended family and had to break me in right.. which I found hilarious after the finding our it was a joke. He said he had no idea until after the message was sent, they said his jaw dropped.. but anyways, he told them about me.. and a buddy at work as well he told me today he showed him a pic I had sent him this morning. Any advise on meeting, and experiences with this? Did it work for you?

I've met and dated a couple people online. One relationship lasted two months, but she was 2 hours away, which made it harder. One lived in a different state and we did two dates before we parted ways. The girl I'm dating now is local. And I've found I appreciate being able to grab lunch with her on days I work.
But to you question about meeting. I always preferred to keep everything public until I knew we were safe. I'd recommend the same for you. I met one girl at the beach. We walked the boardwalk and checked out the shops. Another girl, I took out to dinner and then we checked out the stores in the nearby mall. One date I went on was dinner and a haunted hayride/house place. My girlfriend and I met at a pizza joint, and then went to see a Rifftrax Live event (we actually recreated that date again last night). We both love to laugh, and we felt very comfortable having fun with each other.1
