I met a guy online about 3 months ago. We met on a dating site, eventually exchanged numbers. Now we text and talk on the phone, more texting than anything, and snap chat. He's 31 and I'm 23. He lives about 4 hours away from me in another state. We haven't met in person yet, but have talked about it and plan to soon. I think I've been romanticizing all of it too much because he seems perfect! We have the same sense of humor and enjoy lots of the same things. He has 2 children, neither of which live with him (travels a lot with the military) but he's defn a good dad from what I can tell. He says that I'm the most fantastic woman he's ever met. He sent me flowers to my work the other day! How do you think you're falling for someone you've technically never met? It's the damnedest thing!! Tell you your experience... did it work, was it worth the effort even if it didnt?

its always a weird situation. im not a fan of this because the longer you wait to meet face to face, will only keep increasing your expectations and therefore you will be much more disappointed if its not what you wanted. but since it doesn't make sense to travel for hours to meet a stranger, i just dont put any time in it from begin with.
but in your case, i would maybe just go through with it. you have to know if whats waiting for you really is what you hoped. you took a risk but you already made the investment, now you have to see if it was profitable or not. maybe you are lucky, if not, at least you learned something from it.
maybe just be sure and meet somewhere safe first. im always a bit suspicious in those situations tbh1
