English term or phrase: I wish I could meet you in person, you seem really nice
This is for one of the guys I met and he lives in Germany. I thought it would be nice I could say something in German to him, although he knows English.

I do not know German at all

Thanks in advance

The correct spelling is

Ich wünschte, ich könnte dich persönlich kennen lernen, denn ich finde dich sehr nett.

with a space between "kennen" und "lernen".
