An Epiphany?

While talking to my BFF yesterday I came to what could be considered an epiphany. I think. But I have come to the conclusion the reason I am still single at 33 is due to my being a truck driver. And not for any of the obvious reasons like never being home or anything like that. It's just in the almost 10 years working in a male dominated profession I have seen more into the way the male mind works then any female really has a right to.

Most guys when they are around women they tend to act with a modicum of decency. Not that all truck drivers are neanderthals but a lot of them tend to act in ways towards women drivers that they would only act with their male friends. Again, I am NOT saying all, just a good portion of them act this way. I guess I should feel honored that I am now "one of the guys", but I'd rather not be. There are some things I just don't need to know or don't want to know.
