Well, you're long-distance and there is also a fairly big gap in age and experience. How did you two meet? For how long did you get to know each other in person?
Personally, I have a hard time getting to know someone enough to say that I "love" them if we haven't seen each other in person very much. Also, getting to know someone over the Internet is very different from being in the same room and feeling how compatible you are in that situation. Some people come across very, very differently in text, and you may be surprised at how it contrasts with how they are in person.
It's ok to have feelings for someone, but in a practical sense I don't know how committed you are to having a relationship with someone you've only seen once in a year who lives in a different state. At your age, it'd be wise to go with the flow, and not let your expectations (of what love and dating "should" be like) limit how you approach dating.
