How cautious should I be?

Okay, so I had a few bad experiences recently so I decided to ease up a bit and take a little more time before rushing into something.
Barry is in the army, and although he has not said so, I believe him to be deployed overseas. He wants to IM and has not said anything about meeting. He is very kind and thoughtful. I don't have an issue with him being deployed, since I'm not rushing, right? I haven't heard from him in a week, so maybe he has lost interest.
Mike is older than me by 12 years...which is a bit much for me. His pictures were inconsistent, so I'm wondering if he is carrying a few extra pounds. We have been emailing for almost a month, and 3 times now we have had to postpone our meet. I'm getting suspicious about this...if he really wanted to me, wouldn't we have done so?
Ed is someone I contacted last year on Match. We exchanged one or two emails, and I said "Lets meet!" and I never heard from him again. Now we're on OKcupid and he contacted me, so I have not mentioned the earlier contact. We have been emailing now for 3 weeks, just small talk, really. I didn't want to scare him away again by being too pushy, but I'm running out of things to chat about. I have let him know that my kids will be gone this week for 5 days hoping he would take the hint and suggest we meet. But he hasn't said a thing. If I spend the next 5 days doing yoga and painting the porch and wishing I had a date, I'm going to be bummed!
I didn't mind corresponding with all three, but now I'm feeling like it is time to move forward. WWYD? Any thoughts?
