Would distance really be a deciding factor when it comes to dating someone. The challenges of it are many, but it can work, if both are willing correct?

Yes. It would be, unless there is a reasonable chance that the long-distance aspect would only be for a very short amount of time.
I have been in a long-distance relationship with someone and long-distance, the relationship was fine. But eventually, when we lived in the same city, problems appeared that we had not anticipated. When you date long-distance, you only see the best of another person, but you cannot get to know the day-to-day behavior, the little quirks and kinks that make this person who they are. You cannot realistically get to know if this is someone you can get along with long-term.
You get used to amazing weekends together / the occasional vacation... and when you do eventually move to be together, you may be disappointed that your dreamy special creature is just another human who doesn't like to take out the trash, go to the café with you after work or do the grocery shopping.
I would not do it again. But if you feel that this is the one and only for you - ignore everything I wrote and go for it! If you are a bit on the fence, though... I would recommend you to save your time and effort and find someone closer to you geographically. Best of luck!0

it can work, but it depends how good the 2 of y'all are with each other. like, i'm dating this girl who i was friends with for 4 years and just told her how i felt and boom. she lives in florida, i live in nj (1300 miles). it kinda sucks and a little hard, but whatever0
