Ok, I am not long out of a short rocky devastating relationship, but already I have met someone else. I want to take it slow this time, so any suggestions on how to make a good first impression :) We have met and talked online for a while, and he seems like a lovely man, they all do at first, but I think this one definately seems like the real deal. How can I spark his interest more and make a good impression? And what is a good idea for a first meeting?

Okay- I've done internet dating in past and it is a bit different from real thing- or was for me. I couldn't tell from your Q if you've met him in person yet. The difference I found is that even if you get on online sometimes you just don't click offline, even if you do actually fancy them in person.
Anyway, if you haven't met yet, I'd suggest a daytime date first time- so neither of you is tied in for a long one if you don't click in person when you meet. Gallery, photo exhibition, even a simple coffee. Don't try and over complicate it- go for something you are genuinely interested in- there's nothing more attractive than meeting someone who's interested in what they are doing.
One thing I'd definitely say though is if you meet and like each other remember 2 things. And I reckon these apply if you've met him before or not.
1) If he's the same age as you give or take he's probably got the same amount of relationship baggage as you- by which I mean he might be just as hesitant to trust again
and, if the date works and things evolve then
2) Because he's a boy you might have to explain the take it slow thing using very small words- and reassure him that you are genuinely interested. Its not that we don't understand take it slow- its that I've found some women say it instead of being honest and saying they don't fancy you and that they just want to be friends.0
