I've known him for well over a year online. We were on the same raid team in destiny and have been friends ever since.
I made it clear the relationship we had was friendship but I want to think it could be more.
I've read some articles online about online dating and then finally meeting that person irl and being disappointed.
Quite frankly I really like this guy, he's even younger than me too. But there's always the case that, it's very easy to find yourself lying or making up stories or making you seem great.
I don't know what to do really. If anyone has had any experience in this area please help or advice.

It's extremely rare online relationships survive Most people online are only passing time. Once something more real comes along then you no longer have a place in their life.
You can't really know a person's true character until you meet them in person. You need to see what a person is like in real life situations, and real circumstances before you can know what they are really like as a person.
The ultimate goal would be to eventually meet up, so I'd advise you to hold onto your heart until you get to that stage.
Be safe and be careful , coz there's so many deceitful people online. Ensure you know he is who he says he is before you contemplate ever meeting up.
I'd honestly advise you not to pursue it though, coz people tend to build an image of what a person is like, and what their life could be like together. When they finally meet up their illusion is usually shattered , coz the person isn't the same as the image they created themselves1
