I am busy when he gets home!!

I have been with my partner for 4 years. He has been a truckdriver for 20. The first year was the hardest adapting to the life, but as I am a very independant person I got used to it.

I run my own business which keeps me very busy. He has his job and I have mine. When he gets home and I am busy trying to meet deadlines, he gets resentful that I can't spend enough time with him.

I feel torn between a rock and a hard spot. I understand whats involved in his job, run the house & home, run his books, keep everything up to date and hey, I am not superwoman....Very frustrated!!!!!!!!!!!!!p

Ha it has been a year tomorrow since I posted my busy plea!! Not much has changed. Only I know he resents my job when I have accepted his. The house, yard and paperwork is all up to date so what is his problem!!!!! I don't know what to do. No affection, he won't talk about things.

Thanks Laura,

I just had one of those weekends where he spent the whole weekend fixing his trailers. I sprayed the weeds, got the groceries, mowed the lawn,cleaned the house and left my pile of bookwork on the desk as those other things had to be done. We had a blue yesterday and all I wanted was some ""appreciation"". Not sure how much more I can take.

I know where you are coming from.... these seem to be high maintenance men...lol... I am a student an employee and the mom of 4 children between the ages of 10 - 15... Only my sense of humour keeps me going sometimes. My guy will assume that I am not doing anything when he calls and expects me to leave work and take care of his business... I just politely remind him that I am not always at his beckon call and sometimes things have to wait. Honestly, I think that when he is driving and thinks of things that he needs done, he totally forgets where I am at that time of day, not taking into account that I might be in my office, in a lecture for school or shuttling kids around. Then after his realization, he always apologizes - and then asks me to take care of it when I get the chance...which of course I have no problem with at all. We have mutual respect for what each of us needs to do during the day - the word "Demand" does not exist in our relationship.
