Honestly, distance isn't for everyone. When she says she wants to explore being alone, it means she wants to enjoy being single again. It's hard to want to remain in a relationship when there's distance in between you, because to some, it seems "pointless" or it gives you too much time and space to start wanting other people.
I wouldn't say it's hopeless you'll get back together, but I am going to ask that you don't hold your breath for it and be ready to move on.
