I honestly believe life give us what we are asking for. One goes into the trucking industry with intent to drive when really they are looking for something else. Personal relationship with opposite sex most of the time is motivation. And I said most of the time. If you start sweet talking to someone then it gets outa hand. I am firm believer that life gives you what you ask for. I never start talking about my personal life Private life. Keep the job separate from personal and dont make your job personal.

I think most drive to make money

Unless you are talking about that is why most women go on the road, I don't see how that could be the case. There are not enough lady drivers for a man to reasonable expect to meet a woman and have a personal relationship on the road.

Most people become truck drivers to make money. Some just don't consider every thing that comes along with that lifestyle.

For those, it doesn't equate to the life that they envisioned. Often because it clashes with their situation at home or their personality.

For a woman on the road though, I do agree that you have to have boundaries in your interaction with male drivers. Which include what you say and how you say it.

For a classy woman or a more reserved woman, that is going to be natural anyway.

For a more social butterfly type of personality, you do have to be more mindful. Many of the guys don't have an opportunity to interact with a nice, fun loving woman with a good personality.

So it is true that 2 naive people could go from talking and joking around to taking things further. However, trucking doesn't have to be all work and no social interaction either. You can make many friends on the road. Again, friendships have boundaries though.

I do agree though, life is what you make of it.
