If you date/marry a non-driver all the old stereotype stories will be told to her by her friends/acquaintances/church members etc..you will have problems.
Be honest young man, make it known in your profile what you do, what you are looking for and go from there..wishes to you and keep the shiny side up. Yes, it might be harder than some, but you find someone in position to travel along with you, or be willing to be at home while your away and be happy with that.
Methink when your over 30 or so you might rethink in finding a woman if you are still otr and it's responsibilities in such as job is and in being away.imo,your profession is what it is.
I was a local union driver and never was into the otr thingy.
I'm 25 and an Over the Road Truck Driver, I know my career isnt the easiest one for dating, I am however tired of the stereotypes associated with my profession.
Not sure what is the life of a woman dating/married to an actual 'Truck Driver' but I would think it wouldn't be much different than any other relationship where you have to deal with the separation either because the partner works in the military. Simple as that...yourself the questions and you will have the answers. The thing is most want a home to settle down to, a family, and a hubby who is home most of the time...family part I mentioned because of your age.
Or perhaps is away on the oil rigs for a month or so at the time.... So, it does make it harder, but not impossible...might consider local or within state driving. They are one of the happiest couples I have ever seen and they went through some rough times because he was laid off a time or two when they still had kids at home. I would think with cell phones and the computer it would be easier for you than it was them 30 years ago.
I was a home body,enjoyed that and that was good for me and the family.
This isnt 1980 it's 2010, Do I actually have a real chance at having a successful relationship?Yes of course..a different lady in every city that has a terminal you stop at. The best times I had were when my lady was with me, she would drive, I would drive we made shyt loads of $ and there was no question of infidelity.
