Trucking ruined my relationship
Not seeing eye to eye
My fiancée has been a trucker for a little over a year. When he first decided to go to trucking school I supported him, since I thought he would be doing local.
To my surprise he decided to do OTR and since then our relationship has gone to sh*t. In the beginning I would stay up to be able to talk to him while he drove.
After our daughter was born my focused turned to her and the phone calls became less frequent. He wouldn't try to hold conversations or he was either busy eating, checking in or scaling. Eventually I got tired of it and now I just see him as my child's father.
I've gotten so used to being alone and a single mother that when he is on home time he pisses me off when he even tries to tell me what to do.
To top it all off he's gained so much weight that I can't even see him anymore. It's so unattractive that I won't even have sex with him.
When we first got together I would love holding his hand and now it's just embarrassing, I've even considered cheating on him since he doesn't understand that I'm done with him.
