Adding someone else to a project.

Ok, so I've just recently had an idea for a possible project that could be published (nothing like this has been done before in my field). I made up a list of people I could ask to be involved and got in touch with them all individually. One person seemed really keen to be involved, and then asked if they could be co-lead on the project.
Now, I've run similar projects like this before by myself, and I'm not quite sure whether to take them up on their offer. I don't know them personally and know about their work in a very general kind of way.
Of course, it would be great to have help on this, if just to bounce ideas off of someone else, but is the not knowing them (either professionally or personally) a big deal? Is it silly to want to 'hog the glory'? I'm all sorts of conflicted and was hoping you good folks on the green could maybe help me figure things out.
