There are many unique issues you have to deal with when dating a trucker that do not arise when dating men in other professions.
This is not written to encourage or discourage anybody but I am not going to sugar coat anything either. When my boyfriend and I started dating he was NOT a truck driver, but it started out as a long distance relationship anyway because he lived over 3 hours away.After awhile he moved closer and then chose a local driving job.He injured himself doing that, was out of work for almost 2 years and then had to search for a job.Apparently, over the road driving was all he could find to do so he took a job and was gone almost immediately.After years of being with him daily I found myself alone.
I had mixed feelings about this new situation which included excitement, sadness, and soon resentment.
I was left to figure out how to deal with being alone and the new challenges I faced, alone. Truckers are gone most of the time which pretty much turns your relationship into a long distance relationship.
It has also been compared to the life of a military wife.
That alone is very uncomfortable for most people who want to be in a relationship to actually have someone around to enjoy life with.
By hey, if you just want a phone/pen pal, you’ve got it!
That is until there is a cell signal issue and they are out of range.
