    You need an "a."

    "... a distant relationship."

    It could be more natural to say "I don't have even a distant relationship" instead of "I don't even have a..."
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    I'd use 'connection' or 'link' rather than 'relationship'.
