Right, I'm pre-empting getting the piss taken out of me for this. Basically been thinking about joining, think I'd make a good soldier and all that but I know the social side of the Army is a lot of banter and being one of the lads. That's fine, I can do that. Thing is I know I'm likely to tire quickly of it constantly, I honestly do need some space to myself and to be alone a bit or I just get pissed off. I'm not antisocial or an arsehole in any way but I am fairly "quiet" I guess. Just don't want to drop my current job only to find I'll be tolerating my way through every day because I really do want to serve the country and I think I'd enjoy everything else about being a soldier. Can any of you see this being an issue? Is it as "full on" as I think?
