I too think that you made the right decision by telling him, although I am sure that it was probably hard.

Well, two months later and the landscape is a little different. Contact has been re-established and further revelations revealed. Turns out that the lad also has a history of virtual trans-genderism. He's again interested in meeting me, although he's still a little skeptical at my claims of masculinity. He semi-believes that my saying I'm a man is an attempt to ward off an unwanted suitor. At any rate, it seems that no harm's been done and all that remains is to work out if we're both still interested in making something of it. Thank you all for your counsel, by the way.

Well, of course, if you guys do decide to meet (and I have no idea if that's a good or bad idea), to be safe I would talk to him on the phone first before meeting him in a public place:

Make phone contact only after you feel comfortable — but definitely before your first face-to-face meeting. Be suspicious of someone who won't call you or let you call him.

Don't give out a home phone number until you are sure this is someone you want to see again. Almost all home phone numbers, even some that are supposedly "unlisted," are easily traced to the address. "You can also use an anonymous phone service instead of your cell phone for your initial communications if it makes you feel more comfortable," Tracy says. "Disposable cell phones are also an option."

i'm not sure what virtual means in this context - virtual as in online, or virtual in classic sense. however, that aside, somehow i am not surprised at this development.

glad to hear he's ok :)

Sorry, I do tend to allow flowery language to come before clarity. I meant virtual to mean online.
