So after a couple of months of taking a break from dating, I have decided it is time to try again.

Perhaps you could take a flirty, light-hearted approach...I'm not sure exactly what you'd say, but something along the lines of, "Now, it's only fair that you send another since I sent another," but he may ignore it, or just say, "I don't have one," or "I don't know how to send one."

How bad, i.e. blurry or hard to see is the picture he sent you?

Hi. If your online dating photo is similar to the one you post here, you should have no trouble attracting men. You are a good looking woman.

As to this current guy, you mention he is from your hometown. An alternative route

Why haven't you met him yet? The sooner you meet, the better in my opinion rather than establishing this faux electronic relationship.

Yes. Meeting him would make the most sense. Especially if he lives in your town.
Why waste your time texting, as Mark says.

I think it's always helpful to go w/ your gut feeling--when I have ignored it, that's when I have problems.

When I was OLD, some women's profiles stated how they loved X, Y, or Z team and watch them every Saturday or Sunday (depending whether it was a college or pro team). I avoided contacting them since I have no interest in spectator sports. In my area (Portland, Oregon), college football is big. You had to be either a duck or a beaver (two mascots of the state schools).

Plus I feel that having kids really changes you. I think they teach you not to be so self-centered and more patient. However I am sure people here can share enough counter-examples.
