Dating a doctor is not easy, but it can be quite fulfilling if you are patient, flexible and understand that your "love doctor" will need the understanding from you about the time they must spend with their patients. Following are some advantages and problems of doctor dating.
Being "On-Call": The patients come first which means that at a moment's notice they will have to drop everything and race back to the hospital. It may not seem right or fair, but the truth is that the patients much come first in a doctor's life.
Long Hours: Many doctors work extended shifts with going 48 hours straight or longer being quite common. But the hours have a greater effect than just the time because you can add in at least another day to rest and recover which means that outside of a day or two, you'll be lucky to see them all week long.
Competition: A doctor makes for a great catch and many people know this so expect to face some fierce competition for their attention. This is rather complicated by the lack of available time that they have, so you will need to be somewhat creative in how you best utilize the opportunities such as they are.
Work to Their Time: Although they may be at the hospital for many hours in a row, doctors will have some downtime where they can chat, converse and even flirt. You will need to be ready during those times when they are relaxed at work so you can get in a little "online conversing" of your own.
Flexibility: While single doctors do have to spend a lot of time working with their patients, they can also plan ahead their free time in terms of vacations and the like. By dating them online, you can better plan your meetings and activities so that you can get the most out of the vacations and days off that they can spend with you.
