I'm new to this place, and I'm also brand new to a relationship with an oilfield man. I love him very much and we just moved in together - I moved up further north because he asked me to, hoping it would let us have more time together. He works on the field for 15 days (about 12 hours away) and is back home for 6, which never feels like enough but I try to keep my complaining to a minimum. I know how much he loves his work, and he was doing this when I met him (though in my defense, he was home every night because he had a good gig with fields that were close enough to home that he was home every night when we were just dating).
I know that he'd rather be away in camp, away from home rather than be at home and work in the shop every day. It hurts to hear, because I'd like to think that I could be enough! But boy, does this guy ever love his job. So how to deal with being #2 in his life? Or am I being silly and he just loves his job and it has nothing to do with me?
Anything you ladies (or gents!) have to offer in form of advice, please lay it on me! :)
