I met this guy through the internet and we have been talking and dating for about a month now, it keeps me from temptation, but is it bad?

Well, I don’t think it’s a wise thing to do.
Does he say he’s a Christian? He may not be. Since you’ve never met him in real life, it’s difficult to know for sure.
In addition, you have to ask yourself why you are dating him. Dating needs to have a logical purpose – if not, it’s pointless, and can lead to heartbreak. A very dear friend of mine once said this, and I think it’s a great way to think about dating: “Dating ends in one of two ways. 1) A break-up or 2) marriage.” If marriage isn’t even in the picture (or if marriage can’t be in the picture for a while), then it’ll inevitably end in a break-up.
When you’re dating someone, keep in mind that you could be dating another girl’s future husband. Sobering, right? Be careful. I feel like I give this advice to people a lot, but it’s so important: tell your parents. Ask them what they think about this online relationship you’re in. And pray about it!

^ Everything she said, plus it is very unsafe. No matter how real and great someone may seem online, you never can be sure who is actually behind the screen.

You’re not “dating” him. You’re only talking to him on the internet.
It’s fine to MEET someone online. But you cannot date someone you’ve never met. You could know literally nothing about him (Except that he/she has internet access).
If temptation is enough of a problem for you that you don’t want to physically be around someone, you are not ready to date at all.
