Internet can be fun and it can well, you know, be dangerous. I actually met my boyfriend on match.com. We've been together 4 years in July. He lived an hour away and I was like "oh no, this is not good" but it's worked out. My sister also met her current husband on the same site. They've known each other now for a total of 7 years, 3 of which have been married. Not endorsing the site but I guess we got lucky.
I agree that his message sounds almost scripted. Almost like he may be out fishing to see who he can catch. Of course, that's not to say all the nice things about you aren't true
but just really exercise as much caution as possible and make sure he hasnt been on Dateline recently.
I wish you only the best. I am confident you will find someone!
