Am I overthinking this or finally trying to excercise logic?

Go with the flow or bail? I'm a 33 y.o. female, looking for something serious, have been single for over three years, just came out of a bad dating situation and boom! met an awesome dude. But he's moving in five weeks and intends to leave the country in less than two years.

I don't know if I've learned anything from prior situations and am trying to be wiser or if I'm just scared as eff to get involved with someone who may end up unintentionally hurting me.
I met this guy very, very recently. We had a great date last night. We did a lot of talking and were just completely open and honest about a lot of things. It was refreshing.
But he's moving to the suburbs back in with his parent (we live in a large city) to pursue an accelerated certification program (he's hoping a year, maybe 18 months max) and is planning to teach English in another country (most likely Asia).
Assuming he keeps wanting to hangout, is this a good idea? He said he's wanting to spend this next month+ enjoying the city as much as possible, but is also going out of town 3 of the 5 weekends he has left. He also mentioned he intends to come back in the city as much as possible after he moves.
This may sound WAY TOO EARLY (or just IS) to be thinking about anything beyond a potential fourth meet-up, but I honestly don't know whether to let this play itself out, or really take into account all that he's saying about the near and far future and not pursue this any further.
