The Pros and Cons of dating a Doctor.

One of my most popular posts of all time on this blog is one I wrote almost three years ago titled 'The Pros and Cons of dating a Med student'. I'm still not sure why this post was (and continues to be) so popular, but I figured it was about time I wrote a follow up post. Things haven't changed that much since B was still a med student, however there are definitely a few more things that I can now add to the pros and cons list.

Pro: You can finally afford to say yes to some of those outings you had to say no to when your partner was a poor Uni student.

Con: More often than not, you still don't have the time. Doctors hours are even more full on/all over the place.

Pro: When people ask what your partner does for a living, you can actually give them a job title rather than saying "he's a student".

Con: If you tell someone (that you don't know well) that your partner is a doctor, they automatically make the assumption that you are rich, have it made, etc. Instead you decide to tell people "he works at the hospital", and then they just assume he is a nurse instead. Not that there is anything wrong with being a nurse, but it all goes back to assumptions doesn't it?

Pro: Despite your partners new erratic work hours, you and your partner have gotten through the trialing years of medical school and made it out the other side, stronger than ever.

Con: If you're not already engaged/married to your doctor, people really start demanding to know WHY? They don't care that you are clearly in a long term, committed relationship, they simply want a ring on the finger and an invite to the wedding.

Pro: You can get pre-approved for bank loans simply because your partner is a doctor.

Con: Your own career/financial status suddenly appears insignificant in comparison.

Pro: There's nothing your partner hasn't seen. If you do something gross in front of them they don't even bat an eyelash.

Con: There's nothing your partner hasn't seen. Enough said.

So there you have it - five more pros and cons of dating someone in the medical field.

Is there anything I've forgotten to add to this list? Can you relate to any of these pros and cons?

  4. Great relationship functions on some better websites give you better get a grip on in your individual settings. Your solitude being extremely important, you must give attention to these websites which supply you with the ability to regulate your title, email, phone number etc. Anonymity is necessary in chat rooms and such areas wherever you don't want guests online to understand you right away until you are comfortable with them. Great relationship websites can give you such controls. Such relationship websites would not have a record of offering personal info of the customers to different relationship websites or to telemarketing people. Often you can come to understand of such mischief only after you register and get to understand it the difficult way. If such a thing occurs, just exit the site and start with a different one afresh.
