Most people in relationships look forward to sharing the joys of holidays with the one they love. My boyfriend was unexpectedly delayed for days on a trip that was right before Christmas so he ended up arriving on Christmas Eve.
Well, if a holiday happens to fall on a day they are home, GREAT. That was awesome, but it was a fluke thing and had nothing to do with purposely being home for the holiday. Don’t buy plane tickets for two unless you are all set to go on vacation alone when he doesn’t show up in time to go with you.
If you would like help with the kids or need something fixed in the house you just have to wait until whenever your boyfriend/husband comes into town. I have read not to discuss stressful things with truckers while they are on the road because their job is stressful enough and they are dealing with so much out there (weather, sleeping in a truck, no home cooked meals, etc.) I get that, sort of, but then they come home stressed, tired and grumpy and just want to relax to “escape it all”. If you can’t talk to them when they are on the road or when they are home there aren’t any other options.By hey, if you just want a phone/pen pal, you’ve got it!That is until there is a cell signal issue and they are out of range.You wouldn’t want to ruin their days off with the realities of life that you deal with everyday so I guess you just hold it all in until you explode. Trust issues will be magnified if you are in this type of relationship.I have read many stories on trucker forums from girlfriends or wives of truckers.
