How far is too far away for you to date someone?
If the person is an hour away from you, is that too far?
Or if you like him/her enough, would that really bother you?

There's no such thing as too far, when love is involved...only non-ideal.
But one hour away is not too bad. It's actually very workable if at least one of you has a car and you can make a certain level of commitment in your schedule to see each other regularly.
You can certainly see each other at least once a week if you're only an hour away. Yes, gas is getting pretty expensive, so you might have to cut other costs and not go out on the most expensive dates but that shouldn't matter too much if you're both into each other.
A guy I know had his girlfriend 7 hours away and was regularly travelling down there to see her...at one point, almost every other weekend. That was when gas was cheaper I think, but still that must have been a lot of driving. Eventually, it was decided that they'd have to live in the same city because this wasn't sustainable and their relationship was also going through some growing pains where they needed to be closer together, but last I heard, they're still together.
I also know someone who traveled half-way around the world to be with the girl he loves.
So one hour...not too far.2
