Taking Chances

I met Steve online almost two and a half years ago on Facebook playing a popular online game. It started out quite innocently and we were just friends (though he tells me now he has loved me since the moment he met me). I would get a "poke" from him now and then and we would comment on each others posts.

He was a nice southern gentleman, also caring for his ailing mother. In January of this year our relationship took a turn, I was frustrated with my marriage, my job, my mother, my life and we started chatting online and exchanged phone numbers and began texting.

Sometime in April I finally agreed to let him call me and I have been in love with him ever since.  Today he is arriving via a jet plane to spend 4 days with me to see if we have this connection in real life.  I am terrified that he will see me and turn around and hop on the next plane out of here.
