I have been chatting to a guy online everyday for a month now, he seems very keen and open with me about everything. He even talks about future plans for us both even though we Haven't met yet. There are 100's of photos of me online which he has seen and he thinks are stunning. But I'm REALLY worried that once he sees me he won't fancy me and will think I'm ugly in the flesh as I think I look better on photos. Our date is tomorrow but I'm really scared. Would a guy that's been talking for a girl for so long not dismiss her simply because she doesn't look exactly like her photos? Surely as there are 100's of photos of me from different angles that should mean that I can't look that dissimilar to gross him out in person? P.S I have done this before, I had a year long internet 'relationship' with a guy because I was too scared to meet him, now I regret that I never met him and don't want to go through all of that again for so long.

With the exception of one strange instance in the past, I actually think people look better in real life than they do in photos. Photos are flat 2D images so they don't bring in the natural lighting and dimensions to properly accentuate people's facial and body structures. That said, you're probably too judgmental on yourself. I mean those "100's of photos" are recent, correct? If so, then the guy should already have a pretty damn solid idea on what to expect when he sees you in person.
The only thing you can do is look your best, act your best, and be your best during the date. Even if you're scared, you should go through with this. You don't want to regret things like the last time.1
