Having mistrust or insecurity when you start dating a new person is the most normal thing in the world, especially coming off a bad and deceitful relationship. But bad past experiences don`t have to happen again in the new relationship, nor should it condition how the trucker relates to others.
For a new relationship to evolve and create a bond of trust, you have to overcome this phase of insecurities. This is where you may start to remember the negative experiences you had with your ex-partners and may accidentally fuse your negative emotions from the past with your new current relationship.
The trucker must give a vote of confidence to that new person in their life and how they can do it, through the following key behaviors:
1. Speak clearly and be honest:
If truckers communicate honestly with their new partner, they will be creating a healthy relationship and an excellent bond with that person. If the truck drivers show from the beginning what they feel, how they are, what they look for in a relationship and what they definitely don’t want to live again, then they are creating a solid basis for that loving relationship. By exposing themselves, they can identify if the other person feels the same and if they are compatible.
2. Set limits on privacy before starting the relationship:
It is extremely important to make it clear from the start what the truckers believe are acceptable regarding their privacy. For example, if the truck driver does not like their cell phone to be looked at without permission, as well as other aspects of their privacy, they should tell their current partner. And also, be open to listening to what the person`s privacy limits are and respecting them.
3. It has to be the example of your relationship:
It is very important that the trucker behaves at their best when respecting the decisions of the other person. Communication is very important between two people, even more so when they are getting to know each other. It is advisable to say what they do not like and like before, the same must be done by the other person so that the relationship is clear from the beginning.
4. Observing the evolution of the relationship is important:
Truckers have to be aware of the natural changes that occur in a relationship over time, since not all changes are an indication that something bad is happening, such as some kind of disappointment. Rather, the relationship simply matures and the way of relating changes. When in doubt, the truck drivers must always communicate with their partner to solve what may be happening.
