Dating doctor and nurse

  1. Has anyone ever met someone and fell completely head over heels compatible with the person.You want the person around all the time and you get butterflies. The chemistry is amazing. However, what if the person is a doctor? Do you date each other?

    Why would whether or not he or she is a doctor, a vet, a garbage man, a psychologist or any other career on the planet determine whether or not you date them?

    Have they asked you out?
    Are they married?
    Do they share your interest?

    Those would be the pertinent questions

    I know those questions are important asked and answered.
    Yes, asked out.
    We are not in any relationship with other people, there are no children.
    Yes, we have similar interest and still learning about each other.
    I like to have different people's perspective maybe they write something I never thought about before.

    Well, I've never been in love with a doctor, but I too would want to gather data before embarking on such an endeavor.

    Maybe read a book?

    I knew a doctor and nurse in one of the ERs where I worked who started dating, they are still together now after 8+ years. IMO, it takes a lot of professionalism to keep it that way - professional - at work. This might be something you have to disclose to your leadership if you work in the same area. But I know a lot of nurse-doctor couples. You will probably also run into the philosophy that you don't "poop" where you eat, i.e., dating coworkers can be big trouble if there is a nasty breakup. It's very case-by-case. Enjoy your butterflies.

    Here's an old Confucius saying.... Don't poop where you eat.

    There are a couple of people where I work that are dating, engaged, or married.

    OP---why does it really matter what other people think? If both of you are single, no other relationships, and LIKE TO SPEND TIME WITH EACH OTHER, it doesn't really matter what others think. If you NEED the input of others, are you mature enough to handle such a relationship? Something to think about.

    Someone could write something I never thought about. In my opinion, reading about someone perspective does not make you immature.

    As long as you are both single I don't see a problem. The only potential issue could be with your employer if you work together. You might have to update HR if this becomes a romantic relationship depending on company policy.

    I was married to a doctor. So what??? What difference is it if you were dating another nurse in the hospital. In my experience (I've done both) neither is a particularly good idea but it's your personal life and nobody else's damn business so date who you want

    Well okay then, Spanked- when I was in high school and thereafter, I dated a girl whose Dad was a Doctor and I was pretty impressed with myself, I tell you.

    Not really much to be impressed about. When I said who cares? I meant it. I dumped the Doc for a Nurse (both less than stellar romantic choices). It's not 1953 and the nurse who marries the doctor isn't queen for a day. Most Doctors date nurses for the same reason most people date; attraction, fun... The whole instant love thing?!?! Perhaps the Doc ought to hide or run in the other direction as fast as possible
