Yeah, by emails I also meant other time-lapse forms of communication, mainly messaging on various websites. I usually exchange messages for a few weeks before moving to emails as well. For me the most important thing is having enough time to write an email/message at my own pace. I don't need fast responses, and I'll be uncomfortable if the other person pushes for IM, phone, or texting.
