Not in your case, but I find far to many people rush things. The bond, and your ability to be fluid and let the relationship take its own shape, makes all the difference in attitude and the ability to deal with things.
Enjoy the revelation. It is a great lesson.
My partner is 7 hours drive away,I enjoy the distance because I like my own time and it HAS forced us to take things slower especially with the complications of his children and their mothers. We negotiate regularly and talk daily but we both recognise the need for our 'own time'.
