I am reading this post late, but if you are still seeing him.. I would agree with all the ladies on here, dump him quickly! Once a cheater, always a cheater!

As a happily married man, I can let you and anyone else know. If your spouse or significant other is hiding his/her phone or on line activity, it may be time to move on. My wife and I have the passwords to each other's phones and and computers. With no suspicion there is nothing to hide. Good luck.

I need some advice/ opinions please. My fiance will be going to schneider orientation for 18 days then he will be working as a western regional driver (on road 11 days, home 3). I can't shake my gut feeling that he's looking to be on the road, not just for the income, but for the freedom to cheat with other women. (long story), my question is: Do they have a lot of free time to cheat - like during their 10 hour rest time or between deliveries? How easy is it for truckers to carry on affairs? I know I sound stupid and insecure asking these questions, but I need some info from experienced truckers so I can make a sound decision. I don't want to waste my time on a cheater.

Thank you in advance (sigh)

Regional:

Regional Route

Usually refers to a driver hauling freight within one particular region of the country. You might be in the "Southeast Regional Division" or "Midwest Regional". Regional route drivers often get home on the weekends which is one of the main appeals for this type of route.

Lisa, I've spent time with my husband on the road, and between the isolation, the long hours and the physical fatigue, temptation isn't exactly falling into their laps. On the other hand, someone who is looking to cheat will find opportunity no matter how long the hours or isolating the job. But that applies for people who work office jobs and come home every night as well. Drivers can cheat in trucks, but office workers can cheat at their affair partner's place, hotels, cars, the office itself after hours. It comes down to a person's character. Do you think your fiancée has good character? It sounds like you may not.

Amanda,

Thank you for your response. You're absolutely right, cheating can occur anywhere. My fiance IS a good man; I don't believe he would go out of his way to look for 'a good time', but I can't really say what he would do if an attractive woman offered herself to him - especially when "the cat's away" lol. I sometimes think that men have an ingrained need to 'conquer'. I don't believe all men are unfaithful, but I've been told by many male friends that if the woman is 'hot', and their other half has no way of finding out, they would 'go for it'!!!

I just wondered what it was like at the truck stops, and how often the drivers are actually on the road. I've read, and heard, too much negative info about truckers living double lives (once again; this doesn't apply to all men OR women). Just trying to toss things around a bit to make sure I'm willing, and able, to go the long haul with him as a trucker.

Thank you for you time. I really do appreciate all that truckers do! (my uncle was one; yes, double life)

I had several concerns about my husband going into trucking, such as temperment fit, stress level for both of us, but I never worried much about cheating. Whatever fleeting thoughts I had about that were quickly squashed when I joined this board. By and large, the men here are a classy, upstanding and family-oriented bunch who just want a better life for their families. And the only cheating that gets talked about pertains to the logbook. Stick around here and maybe think about finding some better guy friends because it sounds like your current ones are making you paranoid about a good guy.

Logbook:

A written or electronic record of a driver's duty status which must be maintained at all times. The driver records the amount of time spent driving, on-duty not driving, in the sleeper berth, or off duty. The enforcement of the Hours Of Service Rules (HOS) are based upon the entries put in a driver's logbook.
