Married e-pal wants to meet for coffee.....

I have an epal that I've been writing to for a year. He is married. Our exchanges have been short, once a week, and totally platonic. Usually about generic topics like the weather or something in the news. He hasn't said anything about his marriage or troubles with his wife thank god, but she doesn't know that he has e-pals. He wants to meet up for coffee sometime, he lives in another of the state that I have friends in so sometime it probably would be feasible. I'm not really sure if I should do that though, since he's married. What do you all think? I'm thinking of telling him that its not a good idea since he's married. Also, I think if we meet I may lose him as an e-pal, not because I lied about anything just because I may not meet his expectations or we may just have nothing to say to each other.

Thanks, your opinions are basically the same as mine! Not going to meet up with the guy!
An end to the not-so-dramatic drama:

"I've decided that I'd rather keep my e-pals as internet friends & don't intend to meet any of them in person. I still enjoy writing them though, its a fun and interesting hobby for me because I get to learn things about other cultures and places that I never knew before."--hyacinth_dragon

Ha. And for those of you that don't get the point of an e-pal. Its just like a penpal pretty much. Its another contact with the outside world when you don't have many friends to begin with. :)

Thanks for the advice though everyone. He could be looking to cheat on his wife, I don't know. He doesn't seem sleazy, but I'd rather not meet in person.

I'd like to think that all men are not pigs and only after one thing, and want to continue on with that assumption as long as I can.
