    It is great to meet you in the flesh

    I have been talking with someone on Skype. Now I am going to meet them in person. In English I would say something like "It is great to meet you in the flesh, at last".

    How could I say this in Russian?

    спасибо

    Also "встретиться лично" expresses the same idea.

    Thanks Maxmixiv

    Is вживую in the feminine because you are assuming that I am talking to a woman or for some other reason?

    Thanks

    Вживую is an adverb, it has no gender.
    There are more adverbs like this: наудалую, вслепую, навскидку, понарошку etc.

    Though we make puns of this category of words sometimes:
    Штирлиц выстрелил вслепую. Слепая упала.
    Here the audience could wrongly hear :
    Штирлиц выстрелил в слепую (женщину). Слепая упала.

    Ещё можно сказать: Я рад, что нам удалось наконец встретиться очно.
