We've seen each other as friends with benefits for a little more than a month, but we've been friends for four years. We finally had "the talk" last night about what's going on between us. I said I'm not sure what I want but I don't want a fwb, but I also don't want to stop seeing him. He said he understood that if it had to end being that he leaves for college in a month and I'm still a senior in high school. I asked, "so where do we go from here" and he replied, "I like you. When are you free?" He had also previously stated that long distance can be hard and generally doesn't work. He's going to be going to Temple which is about an hour-ish train ride so it's not like he'll be going across the country. Any advice on if this could work? Would it even be worth it?

This is rough. You need to consider if you can afford the time and money to see this guy. Train rides aren't free (that I know, unless I'm wrong) and an hour while not long, is still considerable enough.
Could you drive? That would make things a lot easier. I personally couldn't do a long-distance relationship; I agree with the guy you like. However, if you feel it is worth trying, than go for it.
The question is not whether we think this could work, or if it is worth it, but whether you think it is given how much you like him.1
