Anyone try online dating? How did it go?

Due to peer persure and my co workers, I join match.com and eharmony.com. On match.com I met this guy he's 27ys and in the manitgment business. But he's in Florida. He message me first. He told me that he like that fact I was into WWE. And that it was rare to find a girl that was into wrestling and also enjoy talking about it. He mention he want to be in the WWE one way or another. In fact he's in Florida to join Full Sail Un.
Anyways, we been talking past 6 months. Even became facebook friends. But havent' exchange numbers. Just been messaging or emailing each other. When we first started chatting. He wanted to have our first date. But, wanted to fly me out to Chicago for a wrestling ppv. Which was back in June. At first I got exicted but scare. I told him I couldn't bc, we just meet. I expalin that my family is over proctected of me. He even offer to fly out my brother to escort me.
He was even to fly out here and meet my older brother than both of us fly to Chicago. But again none of that didn't happend. So I mention that WWE Raw was coming to phoenix in Aug. 26. And his reply was "hmmm". Than I mention Blue October was coming to October. His reply was "hmmmm". (he's a fan of Blue October)
For some reason I feel compftable with him. Told him things I never said to anyone. I explain to him I never dated before nor had a bf. And he was cool with it.
My question is should I contuning chatting to him? Asked to exchange numbers? He tells me he's always thinking of me, blah blah...Oh ya we never skype and I offer.
mmm, usually I tried to keep it within my area code, and even that didn't turn out that great, but that's just me

His reluctance to skype bothers me, after all this time even if he is shy (but that is just me). Has he given you any indication about his past dating history as you have told him yours?
Personally, I never liked online dating. I did it once and it didn't last more than 3 weeks. Although the missus and I are what you would call a byproduct of Facebook (actually met off of the Wheel of Fortune game on Facebook), we met as she didn't live that far from me at the time and 2 1/2 years (officially tomorrow) we're still kicking it.

The fact he's in Florida at Full Sail I guess is a good thing, especially since they do the NXT tapings there and they have a pretty good product based on what I've seen. I think the new WWE Performance Center is near there and it's a very nice facility based on what I've seen in video and photo. It definitely would be a good way to get his foot in the door.

As far as everything else, if you feel comfortable with him, let everything continue with him. Exchanging numbers wouldn't be a bad idea but skyping would also be a great idea. Just keep rolling with it and see where everything goes.

He mentioned he had 5 past relationships. And he respects that I'm saving myself for marriage. He told me about his family. Which he keeps distance from. He says he feels a "connection", which I do as well. I asked for a more current photo. But he says he's not much of a fan of photo taking. Which I'm the same way. At one point he told me he didn't deserve me. And I was to good for him (been told that before).
My friend at work says I should just let him be. And be only friends. I mention to him this week. I have a friend that's going to Florida to visit family next March. She asked for me to come along and maybe meet up with him. He didn't have much of a reply. Just that he got "nervous". He mentioned if we were to Skype that he would stutter and have nothing to say. He would rather do that in person.
Co worker says he's either seeing someone or he's ashamed of his appearance. That's why he won't video chatt or meet.

Just don't know what to do or thing to say.
It would be best to meet at least once before all these plans happen, I don't believe that you can truly know someone just over the internet and I think women particularly need to be careful. So I'd just take it easy at first, and if he doesn't understand why then maybe he isn't the guy for you.

And if he doesn't want to exchange numbers or doesn't reply, just let him be?

We both agree that we should video chatt upon meeting. A co worker told me to tell him, even if it's just to turn on the camera and say a quick hi and bye. He won't even do that.

Has he explained why? I'm pretty sure I'd want to know what's up with that.

Nope not really. I told him I don't judge. It's how the person treats me that counts.

If he doesn't reply, then that would be a problem. As far as not wanting to exchange numbers, hmm.....I don't know. I actually hit a road block on that. Even if one doesn't do video chat, I think at least a verbal conversation whether it be by phone or even by skype without turning on video (or another IM program that allows VOIP) is a great way of breaking the textual wall and letting things slowly progress.

Also, it's good to know you don't judge. It means you have an open mind and an open heart and that's important for any relationship and friendship in my eyes. As long as he doesn't hurt you in any way, shape, or form, you're in good hands.
