I'd say do some reading first.... and talk with him. There is both good and bad information available on the internet. this place is a good start. I am sure others will give you links to sites as well.
However, my first thought is this: I assume you two are just starting with the dating thing, right? If so, there really isn't any reason to get all worked up yet b/c you probably barely know each other. There is no way to know what will happen, etc.
Also - is he currently single as well, or does he already have a SO?
