Tough....very tough having a trucker boyfriend
Well, my boyfriend and I met online. We have been together for about 8 months. He wasn't a trucker when I met him, he got the job about 4 or 5 months into our relationship. He warned me that he would be gone for 3-4 weeks at a time but I said we can get through it.
I had no idea what I was in for. It is so hard not having him to hold me or be with me when I feel down. When I don't hear from him one night, I go crazy with worry. He usually calls every night but when he doesn't, then I begin to wonder.
I constantly have these insecurities like what if he meets someone else or what if he just forgets about me....
When he IS home, he treats me very well, always making sure I am ok. The hardest part is leaving him back at his truck and the next couple days....as the weeks go by it seems easier.
I seem to lose my patience with him when he tells me he doesn't know when hes getting back home. I just have 2 understand its not up to him, rather his dispatcher.
I know he needed to pay bills so he took the first job that came along. I try and be as caring and supportive as I can be.
I have been looking for support groups or even to email trucker's or trucker's gfs/wives. None of my friends really understand because they are always with their boyfriends. I envy them so much. If anyone wants to give me their email or a good support site, please let me know.
Thank you to all the truck drivers out there and to their loved ones.
