The best logical place to ask this question would probably be the regimental visits I need to attend later this year following officer selection, but the question has been at the very forefront of my mind for the past few days. How would my lifestyle as an army officer influence my ability to see my girlfriend? Without really knowing a typical day-in-the-life of an officer, I fear there may be a certain degree of incompatibility between the two things. This is obviously the case with deployments and tours, as I believe they can extend to several months. In which case, I may as well cut my knackers off since they will have no use. I suppose it depends on the job and regiment, to which I've remained very open minded so far, so perhaps I should shut the f**k up and ask the question at the visits. But in the mean time, if anyone has any experience in the matter, I'd appreciate the comments.
