It would make sense if he at least meets you half way. If the two of you have never interacted face to face, it is not the wisest to have him come over and stay with you.
If there is any way that the two of you could start slowly taking trips to visit one another (even at a half way point) and learn more about your habits, etc. try to see if that is an option before you do something more drastic.
What I think is that listening to logic versus feelings leads to better outcomes.
Depends on the distance, you may explore other means of transportation to see one another. Involving one's parents may not be the best choice.
