I'm new to all of this, Im so glad i found this site!
(East Coast USA)
Ive been reading some of the posts and i can tell this is a really supportive community. Its so nice to find a place where i can ask a few questions without feeling silly! Especially without hearing all of the negative things about building a relationship with a trucker.
About two months ago i met a man online who happened to be in my state. We were both bored and met up for coffee. We talked until the sun came up and spent the rest of the weekend together with me driving him around my state showing him the sights.
Since that weekend, we have spent hours daily on the telephone.
Neither of us were actively looking for any sort of relationship other than friendship. I can tell you though, that we both knew that first weekend that there was something special going on between us.
Its been a few months now and he has worked his way back here way before his regular schedule , and we are still going strong with phone calls, texts and other ways of communicating.
The thing that i feel has brought us close so fast, is the complete honesty we have had with each other. Neither of us are kids. We both know that life is too short to play games. What he says to me i believe because he has proven in different ways that he is a no bull kind of man. I have a very busy life here in my state and have lost the chance of dating seriously more than once because of it. With him though, its easier. I think all of our telephone time really has helped us maintain that honesty so far. You dont have to see the look on their face if you said something that might hurt a little, and you have to say to them..hey now be a little nicer with me thats a tender topic. You really have to commit to the honest part of things.
Its been about two months, and about 100 hours of phone time and close to 900 text messages. he brought up being exclusive and i happily agreed.
I even got to ride a short time with him and it just felt so..natural. when i was a younger woman i tried to get funding to learn to drive a big rig but my ex just wouldnt allow it. I feel silly telling my new guy that because im afraid he will think i made it up to impress him or something LOL
Its early on for us, and yet it feel like we have always known each other.
What got me, was how different he is from every, well most every, trucker stereotype i have ever heard.
He is funny, and quick witted..so smart and rugged, and one of the toughest yet sweetest men i have ever met.
Ive totally fallen for him while telling myself its too fast and what kind of future could there be.
This forum has been a great read for me as i begin this adventure with him. I hope that it works out for us forever, but even if it does not i know that i have had some great experiences.
I just wanted to say thank you and while im not a wife i really have taken a lot from here.
