A guy I was seeing broke up with me cause of the distance, but I'd love to be able to open him up to trying again. I don't see it as that far, considering he had his own car and can drive.
Is an hour drive considered long distance for a relationship?

It's not that far at all.4
I suspect that's more an excuse than a reason. When we dated, my late wife lived about an hour from me.2
no it's a normal distance in my opinion1
For me that's to far.0

I married a man from Egypt and with this guy breaking it off with you because of 'An hour drive,' I have to laugh because to me this seems like a stone's throw, compared to where I used to have to travel to which was half way round the world.
He may just be lazy or not feel it is worth the effort and with That, I find it a lame duck excuse here, dear.
You could try again to see where you stand with him, but if he hymns and haws, find someone who is either closer or finds that distance is no problem when he has an amazing girl who he would find is worth traveling miles for.
Good luck. xx1
I suppose it depends on the age and availability of transportation. When I was 14, across town was considered long distance because I didn't have a car.
When I was 19 and I moved an hour away from home for school, that hour was considered long distance because I didn't have my truck at school and had to take the bus. When I was 20 and had my truck at school it wasn't as long distance.
I'm 21 and he now moved 6 hours away from my school for his school. I consider that to be long distance now and wish every day I could have that hour distance back lol1
I live in another state than my boyfriend, he told me there is a 2,000 mile difference in between where we each live. I dated a guy who was 1 and half hours away and the "long distance" didn't seem that much of a problem until the end when everything was unraveling, which was more about how shitty the relationship was overall, so it's not the best example. But if you both want to make it work as much, then it shouldn't matter very much about the one hour...0

Yeah, I never understood that either. I've been broken up for the same reason (but honestly I just think he was giving an excuse --- he talked to *cough cough FLIRTED PRETTY HEAVILY AND LEAD ON cough* a million girls)2
