Us Americans are just that way....we have a way of making Canadian's fall for us :)
I have been down this very similar path. My now husband however is the Canadian and I am the American. He is 32 I am 25. We too did the letter/email/phone thing, and I was the one who was not sure I was ready for a relationship. However, within 10 months of first talking we were married with only two quick trips of real contact inbetween. He came down in January for a week and I came to Canada over Easter. Before I left he proposed and in July we were married.
Best thing I ever did. People thought I was crazy, I thought I was crazy...but when its right you know. We knew we found eachother, and that does not mean that the long distance thing does not have its challenges. You can't know every quarky thing about someone when your thousands of miles apart, but that stuff never mattered because we love each other so much.
Pray pray pray...pray separately, pray together. There came a point when I thought he was going to bail even though I intentionally made him do all the persueing. I was heart broken but I was able to let go, and to actually believe I could trust God knew what he was doing. From that point forward our relationship was solid.

i think the distance actually helps. you're not distracted by physical stuff (not just sexual temptation but just the mundane everyday distractions around you - when you're 'together' all you can do is talk to each other, so you cover a lot more ground a lot faster than you might in person)
Well we're going to be traveling together so if anything will be able to make this for sure, that time together will clarify it all, I'm sure.

Yeah that is true, but that was also the hardest thing for me to get used to once we were married. Not every conversation is exciting. Life is boring and there comes a point when you really have nothing to say. We never hit that point until after we were married where most people would have hit it before.
Where are you traveling to?

I was just talking to someone about this yesterday. It's something I like about the internet development...you spend more time getting to know the person for their thoughts and personality, and the physical attraction comes later. This is so important because you have to know you could enjoy the person's company even if you couldn't have a physical relationship.
