New relationship with truck driver

by Laura

Hi everyone, I met a very much wonderful man who just so happens to be a otr truck driver. Our relationship is still very much new but at the point of having serious feelings for each other.

I work full time and have two children from a previous relationship. I'm looking for any advice that I can get to not only help my driver out but also myself.

We try to talk on the phone at least twice a day. He sends me messages whenever he can. We have also talked about me taking some time off over the summer to hit the road with him.

Thank you in advance!

Thank you, we have started

Thank you! We have started talking about plans for the future, for when the kids are older.

The plans include a bigger truck and myself getting a CDL. Your link was very helpful. Obviously communication will be key for us.

Advice for new relationships with a trucker
by: Hervy

Couples advice. This page talks about the impact of trucking on the family so you can be mindful of what to expect and how to deal with it.

Especially useful if you are not familiar at all with trucking.

Just like you are doing now in asking questions and how you guys are staying in touch, you have to continue to be proactive in nurturing the relationship to overcome the distance apart and time between seeing each other.

Impact of trucking on the family and how to manage it.

My number one advice, make sure you have the same vision for the future of the relationship and how trucking plays into that.

I elaborate more in the pages that the link will take you to.

Best of luck.
