~~The Life Of This Trucker's Fiance~~

I met my fiance in Feb of 2009 and we have been going strong ever since. Not saying everything has been "peaches and cream" but we love each other and want to be together.

Before we started dating, I have my own ideas about what a truck driver was..Cheaters, Liars, Fat, Dirty! I know it sounds horrible but I never met anyone who drove trucks and just went off of what I seen in movies(lol).

Since being with my fiance, all of that has changed.

In the beginning, I didn't have worry in the world about him being gone. Of course I missed him like crazy but I was sooo in love, nothing else mattered. He never gave me any reason to not believe or trust him.

Everytime I told someone that my fiance was a driver, they would try to put thoughts in my head about cheating and other women. It never phased me!! I trusted him, whole heartedly.

He's a good man with a good heart and just wants to provide for his family.

As months, turned into a year..I started getting lonely. He tried his best to comfort me but it wasn't the same. I needed he's touch and he's presence. Theres only so much a cellphone ca

n do to make the situation better. All I could do was remain strong because I knew he was the man I wanted to marry. I was really torn because I wasn't completely happy my living situation in the relationship but I was in love and happy with the man I was in a relationship with.

I didn't realize how hard it was going to be to make it work. We fussed and fought but always made up. When I just needed to vent about him to him..he just listen with understanding ears ( strong man ). He told me how much he loved and missed me everyday...and the feelings were definately mutual.

It's now been almost 2 years and we are still going strong. I'm now expecting our first child together in a month and we couldn't be happier. It's still really hard dealing with my emotions and being lonely but I just try to push through it and count down the days until he's home again. Now with the baby on the way, he's been home often and longer. I'm a strong women and I know that's one of the qualities he seen in me from the beginning..

I realized that I have to keep myself entertained and occupied. That's VERY important ladies. Don't lose your mind thinking about what he's doing. Live your life, support him and love him...That's what they need from us. I know we all miss our trucker...your not alone!

Stay Strong, Be His Rock
by: Pat

I appreciate what you are going through. I am a female who drove trucks for just a couple of years, and the relationship I was in when I began driving crumbled as soon as I had to be gone a few times. It's a hard job to be the one staying at home missing your mate, but it's also hard for the one who is away...missing home. Stay strong and take pride in holding things down while your man is away. Try to keep fussing to a minimum because his job is dangerous and stressful and he needs to at least know that home is good and that keeps him wanting to come home and excited about getting home to you. Keep your head up and just know that all relationships don't fit into a form. I pray for all the best for you and your family and I can tell by your post that you are strong. So stay strong for your man and all will be wonderful.
