agree to meet him in a public area for the first few times till you can tell if he's ok or not.

Yep and tell someone where and when you're meeting so they know where to look for your body.

Seriously though I wouldn't meet anyone off the net unless I was completely comfortable. I think most sensible people are a bit paranoid in these situations.

meet in a public place
tell a friend (and get him/her to come along and spy if you're really nervous)
make sure you're not being followed home by him

I wouldn't worry about it. Just be sure to carry a small gun or knife with you in case he/she tries anything. That's what I do.

do you have reason to suspect that he would hurt you or is a creep?

meet in a public place, have someone come with you to meet him as a group thing or just there to spy and make sure you're all right. and carry some pepper spray with you.
