Husband has a male friend who he talks to ALL of the time

Hi, I'm new so don't really know what I'm doing..lol. Anyway, my hubby has this "friend", also a trucker. He talks to him constantly, I mean a lot...at least 4,000 a month.

I feel like this isn't normal. it actually pisses me off. He will say things like, oh that pain in the ass Bill...but he still continuously talks with him..

I wonder if this is normal, or am I just being stupid.

I think. Your husband is having an affair with his friend. If a male has sex with another male he will never want a woman again I know i left my wife because I want a man

I found out about 2 weeks ago that my husband saved his girlfriends number under a mans name. I called her and she said they were married so I agreed to fax her our marriage certificate and she called him then me just to tell me he said I was lying. Saturday we are both going to surprise him together. He is about to get the surprise of his life. I wonder what he will do.

Yes they talk, and talk and talk NEW

I was shocked how many minutes my husband uses a month. It starts the minute he is on his way to the truck until he drives into the driveway a week later. I can understand the need to communicate when driving all those hours. Yes, it is like a club. They share traffic alerts, weather conditions, loading docks , routes, truck problems, dispatchers, the best places to park at night, etc. Some even talk about their girlfriends/wives, and children. I think all of this is normal.
However, if he becomes guarded about his phone, trust me, he's talking to someone he doesn't want you to know about.
And don't be fooled if you find all male names in his contacts. My husband listed his "friend " as a guy. I never thought he would ever do that to me. Ruined our marriage. Be glad it's just a male friend he talks to.

Maybe he has a boy friend ! You know what I mean jellybean
You never know anymore. If he would rather spend his time on
The phone with some guy instead of better half and kids that does not sound normal to me at all. It's either that or a girlfriend or he just hasn't grown up yet

welcome to the club they form bonds out there like they had in school, remember most of them never grow up. it's easier for them to talk to each other than to talk to us. They have more in common than we do with them. They can talk about us, what it's like not to have time at home, waiting for loads, getting stuck miles from home, and like the one girl said they have someone to talk to keep them awake sometimes. I am about the third down on the list of my husbands most frequent calls the top two are other truck drivers. my husband has been trucking his whole life and he is the second truck driver I married. you would think I would have learned the first time. We purchased our own truck about 5 years ago, and it is not like a job for him it is like he joined a social club. They really become egotistical when they own it. Bottom line is there jobs are tough and they miss home. It's better for him to talk to his friend than someone else. be glad he has someone he can relate to.

RE: Phone talk NEW

My experience when that exact scenario happened with me was he was talking to girlfriends instead of "Mark"(a former student he mentored). And no, I am not the clingy type. I just started thinking it was strange that every time I called, he would be on the phone, which wasn't normal for him as per past experience, so I didn't think too much about it when he told me it was one of his former students. But then I started feeling like something was off and I started snooping and to make a long story short.. it wasn't pretty... about 5-6 women... that is what was keeping his phone busy. NOT MARK! I hope it is different for you. My husband said he started feeling disconnected from home on the road and when he cheated once, it was easier the next time... and the next... and the next... blah blah blah...he was a busy guy. I would be doing some snooping if I were you.

Watch for "Other" hints...! NEW

Girlfriend,
You should be glad he has someone to talk to, otherwise it would be on you to keep him awake while he's on the road. I wouldn't worry about it unless you notice other tendencies, like "secretly" talking to his friends. Don't get greedy too early on.

One of the reasons guys become truck drivers is because they don't want to be tied down to a clingy woman. It's important give each other enough space to upkeep a healthy relationship. Just make sure to keep him interested, so that he always wants to come home to you and only you.

Sure you & I are not married to the same guy lol? Mine seems to find time to talk more to his friends than with me & the kids! Once they become truckers, they become haughty & egotistical!
