Though I don't know how to make him wait, if it was me, I'd wait. It's hard to find someone you really care about. A short term relationship, no I don't think I'd be able to handle it. but a long-distance relationship is something else entirely. Like I said, I'd wait until I could be with that special someone. Five years is not really a long time to wait for someone you'd like to spend the rest of your life with.
