I've never went to any online dating sites, so I thought of going there. But I realized that it wasn't the right thing for me. I've just always been cautious about people online, but there was this one guy who seemed genuinly nice. I gave him my number, but I realized that I couldn't connect with him. Even though he didn't seem to mind at all and resect the fact that I'm totally inexperienced, I still felt strange talking to him about my limited love life. We live close, and I think he's a really good guy, but when we were texting, there wasn't much to talk about. I feel like if we were talking in real life, I would be more confident and have more things to say, but when it comes to texting, I just can't. I feel like I just can't connect with him. Like I don't feel that chemistry people feel. And I just don't know how to tell him that.

I did the whole online dating thing in the past a couple times and like you was very apprehensive at first. I have had quite the diverse experience but am glad I did it.
Between all the randoms I never replied to and the few I did: I went on one date that was a complete dud, one date that I went awesome I just saw more friendship than chemistry, I texted one guy that seemed to only want sex, one man flew 700 miles to see me but again lacked chemistry, and after a while with many dates and moving in together I got engaged to someone I met on OkCupid. However that didn't work out, but we had a wonderful relationship for a good long time.
All I'm really trying to say is that you never know, and if he got this far then as long as he's not a creep, give him a chance. Or you can tell him that it lacks chemistry like I had to do a couple times. But do not worry about the awkwardness of texting someone you don't know. I always say meet sooner rather than later for that exact reason. In a public place. And I always let friends and family know where I'm going and who with to the best of my ability. :)0
