Online Dating

I met this guy online, and he really likes me, and I read like him. He lives on the complete other side of the country. He said he wants to meet up with me, I also want to meet him, but I'm scared that I'll just become, my normal shy self, instead of the confident self when I'm online. Also I'm scared that he'll no longer like once he sees how shy I'm in real life. I don't know what to do ;~;
