Rooster in the hen house

  1. 0
    Hello- i am a married male nurse and several times in my career have been tempted to stray off the path. Hopefully one has a solid secure marriage because if you don't and I am afraid i fall into that category , temptation abounds. I have learned to deal with it though and am walkin the straight and narrow. I actually am pretty good friends with some of my female coworkers but i must remember not to cross the line into anything physical.I'll just keep telling myself that.

    Hahahaha to that last post!! Too funny. This isn't a nursing issue. This is a personal problem you have. It has nothing to do with you being a nurse.

    Thread moved to allnurses breakroom dating/relationships forum as no direct correlation to the practice of nursing.

    Please note that you can post in the "blue banner" breakroom side by signing in using the same username & password as for the "yellow banner" allnurses side.

    There are more unhappily married people in my class than happily married people. I talked to a few of the unhappily married ones and a lot of their stories all sound the same. Their plan is to finish the RN program, get a job and become self sufficient. Afterwards they plan on leaving their spouse and take the kids. Seems like the only reason why they are sticking around now is that they can't make it on their own financially.


    Hey if you got feelings for some of them you should figure out why? Is it because your unhappy, lust, or opportunity? Telling yourself NO all the time is eventually gonna fail. You need to figure out why.

    The title is rather poorly chosen.

    I doubt if the hens are aware that you consider yourself their rooster. The attitude is more likely "fox in the henhouse" rather than "rooster".

    You might also consider that many of the "hens" that tempt you, probably find you not tempting whatsoever,

    Okay, I have to at this time add my "Chicken joke."

    ...As this elderly couple walked through a Chicken House watching the Rooster go from hen to hen, she depressingly said, "I sure wish you had his stamina!"

    He replied, "Well, If I had a "new" hen each time..."

    Yes, he probably slept on the couch that night
