Why I will never marry a doctor
12 June 2015, 10:23
For different reasons, most women want to date or marry a doctor. The many times you've heard some of your girlfriends fantasize about dating or marrying a doctor are countless. And it's understandable. Doctors are charming and caring. We love to be cared for, and doctors do it genuinely.
Or is it for the money? Doctors earn hefty salaries and we like the prospect of financial security in a partner, and so we love it when a man can bring some serious money home each and every month. It is great to have that sort of relationship goal but the thought of having a doctor for life is quite discouraging.
Here are some of my reasons why I will never marry one:
I can’t deal with his flirtatious female patients
Remember the long queue of hot single ladies they meet as patients? It’s very normal for his single, attractive, female patients to bring him gifts as a way of thanking him for his help. Some will even ask him out to dinner. You just can’t understand him or them so don’t risk dating one.
I can’t handle intellectual conversations
Doctors sometimes talk about things that most of us wouldn’t want to even discuss even in examination essays. The real chore comes when you're hanging out with him and his doctor friends. Are you going to be the silent because you just can't relate with what they're talking about? Are they going to ask for your opinion when you don't understand what they are discussing?

It is even hard when he has a female colleague who can keep up with the intellectual conversations and make you feel insecure all the time. This colleague is also his work mate, so she gets to spend more time with him than you. I don’t want to feel inadequate for the rest of our relationship together.
I am not ready for cancelled dates
Imagine getting all dressed up and ready to go out with him, then that call comes. The life of another human being is more important than your silly date. He works for long hours and the night shifts will suck because he is busy saving lives.
You will also need to get used to going to events by yourself, get used to people asking about the ghost boyfriend or husband - yes, the guy they have never met! If you like lots of attention and plenty of social time with your man then don’t fall for a doctor.
That antiseptic smell!
The after-work antiseptic - hospital smell! I’m not saying that doctors smell but be warned they work inside a hospital and use drugs to treat their patients.
