How Doctors can Date Smart
Depending upon his or her profession, your honey may be pulling midnights in the ER or have to rush out in the middle of the night to deliver a baby. As hard as this is to imagine, it may be your birthday but your doctor boyfriend or girlfriend has a very ill patient who needs his or her attention. You will need to make the occasional sacrifice so that he or she can go to work from time to time. Understand that caring for others is part of his or her job. Do you want your lover to look at your body clinically without any appreciation, in an impersonal way?
Remember that one of the number one rules of dating is to leave a little mystery, especially when it comes to pap smears and piles.

Facing coronavirus fears, Chicago nurses and doctors try to protect their own families. Some are weighing whether to live apart from their children; many said Behrens and her husband made sure their wills are up to date.
My husband and I recently made the difficult decision for him to move out of our house and into our friend’s little mother-in-law apartment. No, the hours of household quarantine didn’t drive us to each other’s throats — we hadn’t yet even been cooped up together that long. Rather, he moved out because he’s a doctor actively seeing patients with COVID, and we decided it was in our family’s best interest that he not risk exposing me or our son.
Many other first responders and health care workers across the country have had to — or will have to — contemplate the same decision. They realize it’s likely not a question of whether they will contract the virus but when, and they want to limit their families’ exposure as much as possible, especially if a member of the family is at higher risk. High risk includes someone like me, as I’m pregnant with our second child.
Still, despite being temporarily separated from my husband, I know that I’m lucky. He’s not working in a hospital intensive care unit but serving patients in his family medical practice and at urgent care. I’m on a group text with other partners of doctors who are also solo parenting through the pandemic. I work for an incredible company that is very understanding of my parenting predicament.

Depends on the country and the kind of doctor that you are dating. In a country like India, doctors are of two types -clinicians and non-clinicians. Non-clinicians.
This blog is for all the unsung heroes — all of us who are partners with doctors. All of us who try not to define our lives by the profession of our partners, but get sucked into their world anyway. And trying to make sense of it. To laugh about it. To cry about it. And to connect to others about it. You had no idea either… at first. You had no idea it was going to be every bit as rewarding, frustrating, isolating, meaningful and everything in between.
