Wow, guess I am one of the lucky ones...
After reading many of these posts regarding cheating men; men that come home and lay on the couch; demanding men; men that don't communicate.... and the list goes on... I guess I can count myself lucky as many drivers are "dogs"? I say that with tongue firmly planted in cheek..... :-)
My guy will call frequently, text often and always is interested in how my day went. TOTAL difference to my 19 yr marriage to a construction worker who never called, didn't give a damn and cheated on me.... hmmm; so it actually happens in other professions? Really???
After my fella comes home off the road; he will enjoy a nice meal that I have prepared, has a hot shower and uses a clean, warm towel right out of the dryer and then proceeds to help with the kids, grocery shops with me, cleans the house, hugs and kisses me everytime we are in close proximity, and always has a smile and is happy to be home with his family. The kids are always telling us to get a room...lol.
I think our problems stem with the types of guys we choose to fall in love with. Does not matter what they do for a living. I have a more loving, meaningful communication with my trucker ( even when OTR ) than I did with my superintendant contstruction ex-husband ( whom I chose poorly )...who should have been home but never was..
I am concerned with some of the negativity with some of these posts and wanted to let all the ladies know that the good ones are out there; you just gotta know what your are looking for and what you want in your life.
