Bobby Sue (alias), my girlfriend, and I haven’t had sex for over six months. I’m a good-looking guy, I keep myself together, and Bobby Sue still looks hot to me. We used to cuddle in the back of the truck when we were laid over or stopped for a while. We used to take showers together and do everything together! She was an animal in bed!
Now that’s all stopped, just like that, and I don’t know what happened. I’m really sad. What should I do?

Have you heard of TMI (too much information)? Really, Tex.
You just exceeded all TMI standards, which tells me you probably crossed far too many lines with your girlfriend.
Take this quick assessment. If you answer “yes” to any of the following, your girlfriend has every right to bail. Are you:
4. Overly sensitive
7. Married (that includes separated)
8. Financially dependent
9. Living with your mother when not on the road
10. One who mixes whites in with colors in the wash
Don’t self-assess, Tex. Ask someone who wants to see you live a happy life and is willing to help you get there.
Frankly, if I were Bobby Sue and learned that you sent this note to “Driven Women,” I’d stop the truck and ask you to check the brakes. As soon as your feet hit the ground, I’d take off. Yeah, Tex. Seek help–quickly.
