I've been in my current relationship for nine months, although the most recent two have been spent long-distance, as he is overseas until September. That said, recently our conversations have gotten a little stale, and less affectionate as well. I have always felt that emotionally, we weren't as connected as other couples, and we've always maintained a certain air of detachment and etiquette around each other even when we were living in the same place. We've never argued.
Sure you have a chance, others have been in your situation before you, sometimes succeeding, sometimes failing. Maybe what you need is to get out of your comfort zone and start to talk about what's really important to you.
