how to date a doctor

The medical profession is certainly one of the noblest around, particularly for the doctor who has dedicated his or her life to caring for people in need of attention. It's little wonder that single doctors are considered quite the catch as they not only help the sick and injured, but are highly respected in the community, are highly educated, have a compassionate nature and many of them earn a considerable amount of money as well.

Dating a doctor however, especially online is another matter entirely. While many of us get most of our perceptions of doctors from popular TV shows, the truth is that their lives are more complicated than what we see portrayed. Far from the "love doctor" who is always there for your needs, it takes a far different approach to dating single doctors than people in most other professions.You may find yourself falling for a doctor, but not quite understanding just how to establish a relationship. This is a very common problem with doctors, especially those who work in hospitals where they may pull 24 to 48 hour shifts. Even a doctor who runs his or her own practice will find themselves working late hours and weekends to help meet the needs of their patients. So, for the person who wants to love a doctor, some special considerations will have to be made.

  • Time: The demands on a doctor's time can be considerable, particularly if they work in a hospital or run a highly successful practice. Doctors can be on duty for 48 hours straight and even be on call to work with patients. This means that you may have very little practical time to date a doctor. You may find yourself engaging in dates either late at night or in the morning or early afternoon hours because of the doctor's work schedule. This is not that uncommon as a doctor's free time is quite limited. In fact, this is a good way to get to know the person while not being in a heavy commitment. Although it can be quite odd to go out on a date at 10 'o clock in the morning.
  • Effort: It takes a great deal of dedication to be a doctor as they work with patients throughout their day. Those who work surgery or emergency rooms can log in many hours which drain them of their energy. By the time they get off work, many doctors are exhausted and may have little interest in doing more than going to bed or sleeping on the couch.
  • Environment: Doctors work in an environment where their reputations are subject to public scrutiny. This means that doctors must be mindful of their conduct and they take care to associate with the people that will not harm their reputation. Of course, it's not that a doctor cannot tear up the dance floor or perhaps enjoy a night out on the town, but in most cases doctors are rather conservative in nature when it comes to their personal activities.
  • Online Dating:This is a great way to get to know a doctor while they can still perform their work schedule. This form of dating has become quite popular with doctors for many reasons, but the bottom line is that it can be a wonderful way to meet and get to know someone while not compromising the time they must spend with their patients.
  • Be Mindful of their Time: When dating elite doctors, it is important to be mindful of the time they have to spend with you. This may mean dating at odd times during the week such as at a luncheon for example, but the rewards can be well worth it as doctors do make a considerable amount of money and can take substantial vacations.
  • Keep in Touch: Because of their time commitment, you will probably be spending a lot of time text messaging, sending emails, or talking on the phone. Remember to stay in touch because this may be the only time you can share for days as they are at their work. You can use this time to set up your next date and keep up with each other.
  • Have Fun: Most importantly when dating a doctor you should go out to have fun. Choose a fun adventure and enjoy yourselves because that is what elite dating is really all about.
