Welcome to my world, I feel we may share a very similar line of experiences. You are not making too much of it in my opinion. You do however need to enjoy what you have and see it as it is so as not to doom it prior to success. Which isn't always the easiest thing to do. Take it one day at a time, don't allow yourself to feel bullied either by him or by your own assumed time-line into a commitment that your not ready for. Keep your self guarded within reason but open to the possibility of loving success. Remember that flaws are going to be seen on both sides, dealt with accordingly and nothing is perfect but doesn't mean happiness isn't possible. A good relationship is always worth a bit of risk, it just might be the one for you. Good Luck and wish a little on mine to if you please.
