Find a Conversation

Last week a guy on Match.com started an online conversation with me, and today we talked. He wants to get together next Friday. I'm nervous because this is the first guy from online that I'll be meeting who is actually "about average" in build (unless he has lied and his picture is old, which is possible). I don't worry about being chubby when the guy is also overweight, but ...
The thing is, I have a small frame and I am short, so the match.com descriptor "large" or "big and beautiful" or whatever it was, just didn't fit. That left me with "a few extra pounds" but that is wrong too--I am more than a few extra pounds overweight.
I've included a couple of full-length pictures in my profile, but they are pictures that flatter (I am only human)-- you know, a picture with one foot in front of me and shoulders slightly tilted sideways--the classic pose to look thinner. And nothing really gives the impression of what I look like standing next to other taller, thinner people (short and stout like the little teapot of the song, I'm sure).
So should I warn him? Should I send him a bunch of unflattering pictures to prepare him?
Don't laugh at me. I'm really concerned about this. What if he takes one look at me and decide that I am a small blimp and can't wait to end the meeting for that reason.
