Girlfriend of a long haul truck driver...how to cope
My boyfriend and I have been together for 15 months and have been living together for the last 6 months.
I just picked him up today and within three hours he got a call to back to work to take a load to Little Rock. I don't know if I can do this anymore.
Since May 18th he has been home 3 days, which we spent with his kids and his ex wife. I did go with him last Friday when he did some local stuff and then on Saturday he had to pull some trailers so I went with him, I wanted to go this time but with time constraints we couldn't go home I just had to take him back to his truck.
I try and be as supportive as possible and I love what he does, he is great at his job, driving with him I got a different perspective on what he really does.
The problem is, I just miss him so much, I am unemployed and currently looking for work, and I know once I start working again things for me will be better, or would they?
How do you cope with the missing him so much? I know his ex told me do like she did, open the marriage because she was tired of being alone all the time and he was gone so much and she had needs.
I refuse to open our relationship and he is in agreement. I don't want to be with anyone else, I want him, I just don't know if I am cut out to be a truckers girlfriend......
Any advice would be appreciated
Thanks so much
