    I think you have a new crush, can't stop thinking about him or her and this is another chance to examine the relationship because you are all alive with NRE (New Relationship Energy).

    Just go with it and see what happens. Life is short. I kissed a lot of guys in my single days and I still wish I had kissed more. Everyone knows once the hormones of NRE kick in it won't matter what anyone says about whether or not its a good idea. Unless it gets in the way of you being a decent coworker, nobody really cares.

    I've never fallen in love with a doctor, but my coworker has and it was GREAT. I was on the night shift and the doctor would come by and give us free iced lattes. He knew that he had to get through her crew (us) before he could date her. He was smart.

    Then he insisted that she give up nursing to be his wife. She dumped him. She was smarter.

    Okay I am assuming you work together and the issue has nothing to do with him/her being a doctor. How closely together do you work? I've been married for 10 years so I really don't have dating advice but one issue comes to mind- How would your working conditions be if you were to get into a big fight, or if someone gets jealous? Can you remain professional, or would your emotions take over and prevent you from doing your job? Would it be easier to keep things on a professional level if you added some distance, perhaps another floor or unit?

    At a minimum check your employer's policy on dating colleagues and make sure you wouldn't be violating it (it sounds like its okay if you know others who are dating/married etc.)

    I don't think I could work with my husband but I know many people who do and it's great for them.

    Best of luck to you!

    This.

    If you work together only casually, then I doubt it would be a big deal. If you work together all of the time, then think long and hard about how well you'd work together if you had a big fight or broke up.

    I used to have a couple of coworkers who were engaged and then broke up (an RN and an RT). Our specialty, NICU, is a very small world, and they had to work together all of the time. They were very professional about it but I know it drove the RN nuts working with the RT for several hours at a time on a weekly basis, especially after he started hitting on other nurses in the unit.

    In a lot of places, physicians aren't actually hospital employees (rather, they're part of a medical group that is contracted with the hospital); therefore any 'no dating coworkers' policy may not technically apply, though it may be frowned upon.

    Found this link about the good kind of butterflies in your stomach. One commenter said they felt like they had a giant moth in their stomach like on the Lunesta commercial. OMG!

    Yes, it was like that when I was with Belinda when we first got together back in '06.

    Seven years later, when we were planning to get married, I was having some gastric distress, so I saw a gastroenterologist. He told me the tests showed there was nothing to worry about, the butterflies were just leaving.

    Here's a pic from my endoscopy:

    If they are both single, I don't see why not.

    I think that if you are really interested and willing to offer your time for somebody you care about then go for it. It doesn't matter what their profession is but if you both work at the same place then keep a professional relationship in your work place.
