He's leading a double life...Help!
I am in a long-term relationship with a man who is the absolute love of my life. This year he found himself at a crossroad. Being desperate for work, he got his CDL and hit the road.
Having spent all our time together for the past 10 years, the separation was more overwhelming than words can express.
A couple months ago, he ran into some issues at work which put him under review. Since then, things haven't been the same. He suddenly stopped packing food and went from a huge suitcase to a carry-on. He used to come home wearing his ID badge...haven't seen it since. His schedule is erratic and there doesn't seem to be any consistency.
Knowing him better than I know myself, I'm 100% sure he isn't driving anymore, but he continues to pretend he is. I also know that he's been spending time with another woman who shares his passion for social dance. He insists they're just "friends", but I don't buy it.
I'm trying to bide my time and give him the space to work through whatever is going on in his life, but I've about reached the end of my rope.
I'm considering asking him to "quit" his job and concentrate on a part-time non-trucking opportunity that will keep him at home. I really need some advice ladies! I know he has no intention of leaving our relationship, but I also know I deserve better than this.
What would you do in my shoes?
