This is typical of a long distance relationship. That is why they are so difficult. Sometimes feeling detached is a way of dealing with the instability of a LDR. If you feel detached with her then you have to ask yourself what the benefit of being together is. Usually people who feel detached are distancing themselves from a relationship in order to not see the problems that are there. It is okay to have mixed emotions but only to a certain extent. You have to ask yourself if being apart is a relationship that can work for you. You have some questions to ask yourself. Is this relationship worth the distance and am I in this relationship 100%. If not what is lacking. You have to decide what it is you want
