Thanks susan this sounds like real good advice especially the part about keeping yourself up.

Keep yourself up, don't go around looking like some greasy pig lol, and i would be willing to bet, when you least expect it, you'll meet someone. >

The cool part is could meet someone anywhere...then take home time there..so it really broadens your chances. ;)

I tried to offer myself to Rainy but she kept turning me down. Chicks hate romantics :P lol

Ohhhh no....I'd never turn down a handsome trucker romantic. ;)

A guy I was in training with said it best. When getting into this career, when you leave home for 3 -4 weeks, if your relationship at home is solid it will need some work when you return home. If you leave and it is rocky at home you will probably be divorced when you get home.

Basically this is not a easy career on any relationship, especially OTR. It takes a strong woman and strong relationship to last. You need both of those. I know two people in my orientation class lost relationships at home in the 8 weeks total they were gone. 3 weeks training and 5 weeks with trainer.

Wish you the best and thankful my wife wasn't one of the two 😉

OTR:

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.

Pulling into SPRIMO now..... sees a LONG line of drivers and asks.

"Is this the line to meet Rainy?" BTW, I may only have 10 wheels, but I got the full dozen roses. smile.gif

Well...here's a flip to that coin...if you were already involved, your wife/gf might not like it and give you hell for it. Meeting someone new, that is something they must accept.

Those I know in trucking met their wives on the road and now they team. One friend told me he fell in love with his wife when he saw her pull into a truck stop and back in without doing a pull up. She jumped out of the truck and he introduced himself. They have been driving 14 years together now.

Another of my friends was a trainer and trained a woman. They were so good together they started teaming and three years later got.married. they been married six years.

So is it possible? Sure. Even before I came into trucking I was the perfect trucker /military gf. Miss you love you can't wait to see you...then you get home and get back on the road before you can annoy me. Hahaha

Keep in mind too that home time can be wherever you want... And if possible and the company allows it, you can bring her along occasionally.

One friend would have his wife take a two week vacation from her job then he'd pick her up and take her out for a couple weeks, being sure to go to fun places like Vegas or Florida beaches or something.

I'm still looking for a really hot poor guy, or an old rich one with a heart problem. Seems more likely you will find a woman than I'll find my guy hahhah

You don't have to do otr forever. My goal from the beginning was to get a local job. I though it may take 1-2 years to accomplish that. In less than 8 months I was offered a local position. I run local out of Chicago. I got into this due to financial circumstances. I have a wife and 2 kids. So going local was extremely important to me. what I am saying, it all depends on you and the goals you set for yourself

Find a rich old widow with an unattached daughter your age.
