Hi Mohammed

I know that you want me to offer you some sort of technique, some plan for making this girl attentive and loving again. I'm afraid I cant do that. You must accept that any relationship only exists is BOTH parties want it to. One person , no matter how badly they want it, cannot keep a relationship going.
Long distance relationships are very difficult. For married couple with children it can be, pratically at least a little easier as they are working towards a common goal but for two young people who are just starting out in life and love, its difficult because young love needs closeness.

If you really miss her that much, and life is so terrible without her then maybe you need to consider drastic action like leaving your job and moving back to her town. I'd advise against that though. My advice , which you wont like, is that you have one final conversation with this girl and attempt to make her understand how confused and upset you are by her cooleness towards you.
If that doesnt work then Mohammed, you may have to simply accept that the relationship is over. Its not easy, and its not pleasant but it may be the case.

Good luck
