Keep my girl or my job???

I just started trucking to help pay off some of my loans. I like it more than I thought I would, but recently my girl asked me to stop. She says I don't spend enough time with her anymore. She said to pick my job or her, that's messed up! I like making money, I NEED it! I feel like I am screwed either way here, but should I keep the girl or the job?

If you're girlfriend really loves you she stand by you side no matter what.i driven trucks for 16yrs and mine stood by my side though the good and the bad with having 3 kids also.if she is trying to make you choose between her and your job she not supporting with you love to do.

Im sorry she has given you an alternatom such as that, I've been driving 9yrs now and remained single for those very reasons. I love my job, and would not change it till im ready to, however I recently got engage to an amazing man that supports my profession 100% with no pressure, a rare thing for sure. Thats the reality of this life unfortunately. You will know what to do in your heart when the time is right. Be safe driver!

As far as you making a big decision I would say this everyone needs a job jobs are so hard to come by I would follow my heart and go from there a heart will never steer you wrong but if your girlfriend Could understand that this is a great job then maybe it would be better I wish you the best in your decision

See if you are able to take her with you sometime, she would love seeing God’s beautiful work of art out on the road! I know I did when I started driving 10 years ago! There isn’t anything more beautiful than God’s work!!!

Elijah , Gloria is 100% correct here . Keep your job !! No disrespect intended here Gloria , but women are like trolly cars , if you miss one , there will be another one coming real soon . And she will be the right one for you .have you ever heard the expression “ the right women can and will help her man succeed and go places he never knew were possible in his life “ . Elijah , that’s the lady you need to hold out for .. you are doing great !!! Keep up the good work and never quit !!

Anyone who forces you to choose between them or your job needs to leave. Keep the job. It is more reliable.
