Find a new girl. That wishy washy stuff will only get worse, never better.

You need to be upfront with her and set expectation about traveling. And then when you are at home, maximize the time with her. As D1 said it's not easy, I tried everything (less traveling, alt travel, talking every day...) and my ex and I ended breaking up after 8 months, although things got really serious... Good luck dude!!!

PwC1 is right, it's never easy and something has gotta give i.e. time with your gf, friends, or me time. Finding someone who is independent and a life outside of you also makes things much easier

I'm married and it gets harder when you go from a non-traveling industry job to traveling every week. Find someone who is comfortable with themselves but also enjoys time with you.

Was upfront with it and prioritized my time with her when I was not traveling. Also lucky I got on a flexible project when things got serious where I was remote for a week every 2 weeks of travel. But honestly not easy, also use alt travel to go on trips together

Who pays for her travel tickets?

Next her

HI everyone. I very recently joined PwC as a Technology Consultant (I moved over from a big tech company where I was in business development and solution engineering), but my goal is to be in an internal role that isn't client-facing and is more projects- / ops-based. What opportunities are there at PwC for this? Which LOBs should I look into? Is there anyone I should reach out to? I have read about Trust Services and IFS, and am also very interesting in marketing or sales operations.
