You may ask him to send you pictures of where he is, kind of would like to see the places that he sees)

As far as not calling and/or texting.. it depends on the personality and/or his mind state. Some ppl just do not like to bother or being bothered while occupied with responsible task. Day time sleeping, you are working, would not want to bother during that time, many options, just talk to him, if you are worried about it and come up with a solution, time for call, time for txt, etc.

I guess I am the oddball. I talk to my husband once or twice a week. We've been together 10 years...wait...11...married for 8 or 9 of them...maybe. Hell we don't even know our anniversary lol If you need him to call/text more often, tell him. Communicate. That way you can be together for a long time and only talk once a week or so :D


Transportation Worker Identification Credential

Truck drivers who regularly pick up from or deliver to the shipping ports will often be required to carry a TWIC card.

Your TWIC is a tamper-resistant biometric card which acts as both your identification in secure areas, as well as an indicator of you having passed the necessary security clearance. TWIC cards are valid for five years. The issuance of TWIC cards is overseen by the Transportation Security Administration and the Department of Homeland Security.

I'm a widow lady driver so I have to rely on other people to call me. No boyfriend, but it would be nice to have one. At my age, I don't feel the need to talk constantly and actually didn't when I was younger and married....too independent I guess.

There are days however, and today was one of them, that I did NOT want to get any phone calls and really not even texts. However, a friend called and bent my ear for an hour or so about her goats and some idea she had. I had to get short with her because the ideas were way out in left field and not practical.

So when the next phone call came in this evening, I kept it short because I really did NOT want to talk to anyone. Now I'm going through the posts on this forum and getting ready to hit the bunk.

Its just been 4 months. I don't want him to misunderstand him.

He’s been driving two years, but how long have you two been together?

You've gotten some SAGE ADVICE up in here, m'lady!!! Especially from 'the ladies!'

Here's MY story . . . and my guy is still driving. Local(ish) now, but we sure don't 'yammer' on the phone all day, if even at all. He focuses, as do I (working from home) on our OWN careers. Lest something important arises... we just don't chat much!

We made it; you can, too! >>> Personal Stuff (mine's 4th down...)

Best wishes!

~ Anne & Tom ~

ps: How old are y'all? That may factor in, just sayin!

pps: Kearsey (a mod on here) has MUCH adieu on her channel, here: Kearsey

I don't really have any advice, but I talk to my crazy fraulein every day, we text like two teenagers (not while driving) I usually video call every day. We're both busy, so sometimes we may not get back to a conversation for a while.

All my phone controls are voice activated and hands free. notwithstanding, I usually stay off the phone (headset) while driving and opt for communication at the shippers, receivers and during breaks.


The customer who is shipping the freight. This is where the driver will pick up a load and then deliver it to the receiver or consignee.
