My Sister-in-law met a guy in the UK _, talked for a few months and he ended up selling everything, moving to the US and he has been the best thing ever to happen to her. So there are success stories - the main thing is - BE CAREFUL. There are more weirdo's (relative to than just good people out there it seems, so just be careful, but do not let it hamper forward progress either. Caution is good but don't let the fear of "what if" keep you from "what can be". Have fun, I hope it goes well for you.
