Good excuse for not going on the road

by Kelly
(Florida)

Hi, I am a soon to be newly wed to a truck driving man who is 35 years my senior. My question to you is that my man has been on break for about a week and until he gets another driver onto the road he has to go back into work for about a week.

He wasn't going to go back on the road but I encouraged him to, and offered to go with him. I am feeling like I don't want to go on the road for him so I need a justified excuse for not wanting to with him. Without hurting his feelings.

Any suggestions would be great.

Thanks so much!

-Kelly

Go On The Road With Him
by: Hervy

Unfortunately, my advice is to go on the road with him. Not find an excuse for not going. If you care about the relationship, this could be very important.

If you don't want to experience this with him, at least once, I am not sure about how much you care about the relationship. I think you might want to think about how you really feel about him and if you need to go forward with marriage.

Are you compatible and are you in love with him?
Are you satisfied or disappointed with how he treats you? Is he turning out to be different than what you thought?

If these or others things are causing you to have doubt about moving forward with him, maybe you two should talk about the future with each other.

What are the plans?

If he is 35 year older and you want him to leave. Is this based on love or are you together for other reasons? If you are together for other reasons, like an arrangement of some sort, then you should just be able to tell him, you don't want to go. It shouldn't hurt his feelings.

If you love him, I say don't make an excuse, ride with him.

On the road.

Go with him on the road; you may enjoy it.
I married a woman 30 yrs. younger than me and she was skeptical about going with me. After the first trip, she loved the travel.
