Physical Distance and "Dating"

I am 54, divorced, and I don't do a lot of dating. Still,I am on a couple of free dating sites and once in a while I get a contact that interests me. This happened this past week. Since our first e-mails a week ago, we have moved to daily LONG phone calls for the past three days. I am not sure how I feel about this.
Normally, the long phone calls would not be happening before I had met the guy in person. But in this case, he lives three and a half hours away. He also doesn't like to type, so he persuaded me to talk on the phone. Now he is calling me every day. I enjoy talking to him, but I really don't need a phone buddy.
He has said nothing about meeting in person. Am I wrong to feel that it is time for him to start suggesting a meeting? Do I even want to meet in person?
I'm really torn. This guy is interesting, his picture is not unattractive, and he seems to have a lot in common with me (similar tastes, values, even some background similarities).
On the other hand, he lives too far away for regular dating. Meeting once is not going to solve anything if we find each other attractive.
So I am not sure whether to suggest that we meet. I would like to meet him, but on the other hand, I don't want to encourage him too much because I'm not sure that a long-distance thing would work for me.
