I can say that my girlfriend and I do have periods of time where we are both very busy and it becomes difficult. In those moments, while we do miss each other overall, i don’t know that we miss each other more than the usual. If the issue is that she didn’t miss you at all, maybe it’s something for you guys to discuss. Some people aren’t as affectionate, and while I know that’s not how my relationship works, some relationships do. Have you tried openly discussing this with her and seeing if maybe this was a very busy trip, or if it is a consistent issue? Communication is key. I know I’ve had very anxious times where my girlfriend was concerned that I was worried about deeper issues, mainly things that I had never expressed before. Getting those deeper issues and concerns, even patterns you recognize from past relationships and addressing them in your current one, can be very helpful if you’re both willing to work on the problems at hand. As always, I’d advise seeking more help on reddit as well via r/relationships, r/relationshipadvice, r/askwomen and r/askmen.
