I need some input on a new "relationship".
I have been out of the dating scene for over 20 years so don't know if this is a new way of doing things.
I am going through a divorce and met this guy in a dating place on the computer. He is an over the road truck driver ( gone a week at a time)and seems to be very honest and cares for me; he said he is falling in love with me but sometimes actions speak louder than words. He will get a call coming in from his daughter when he is talking to me so he lets me go saying he will call me back and that doesn't happen for hours or up to a day. This irritates me very much but when we are together he treats me very well and is very attentive. I know it is tough for him to talk as he is driving so I must take that into consideration.
We really have a great time together so I don't want to make a mistake here. I could very much see us making a lasting relationship.
There is a time line for us to be together of 2 years as his daughter will be out of the house by then. I have to work on myself for about that same amount of time so I get it right this time, too, so that would work for me as well. Also, when his daughter goes off to college/work, he will no longer have to work.
I know he is divorced but am not sure if he has someone else he is seeing as he is not available very much on weekends.
He was very upfront with me in the beginning that his first priority is his daughter. He just got her back from his ex wife. And, I can understand that but he has not told her about me yet...
So, what do the experts say about this one? Just keep going the way we are or say goodbye? Just play it by ear and hope he becomes more committed to me?
