Be My Valentine
By: Heidi O.
Two years ago this month, I met my husband online. Yes, I said online. As scary as some say meeting someone online can be, I am here to tell you that true love really can be found there also.
I was a divorcee and had been trying my hand at dating. I dated friends of friends and met a few people that I tried to go out with, but nothing was working out. So I took the advice of a friend and started looking around online.
I tried a few dating sites out, only to find you needed to pay money in order to even read your email or be “matched” with someone who had the same interests as you.
After many failed attempts at these “popular” sites, I googled online dating sites and found many totally free sites where you could pick and choose who you decided you wanted to talk to from the email responses you received.
I ended up on a site called “Truckers Paradise” and I responded to a few interested ads. Needless to say, this is where I met my husband. I have found upon writing this article that this site is no longer up and running, but I have discovered there are several other dating sites geared towards truckers. The following are some of the sites that you can check out if you are looking for your love connection:
- Trucker Cupid (truckercupidplus.com)
- Trucker Passions (truckerpassions.com)
- Truckers Hook Up (truckershookup.com)
Being on the road, it can be difficult to find that special someone, or even just find a friend to hang out with when you have some down time. The sites above can possibly help you discreetly find the person you are searching for.
As with all online dating, please be very careful in what you tell the person right away. Never give any personal information to a stranger and if you decide to meet, please make your first meet in a public place for everyone’s safety.
Happy Valentine’s Day to all of you and Happy Searching.
