Anonymous asked: Hey! Do you think that the majoritiy of medical students want to date and with other medical students and why so? And what's your personal experience or opinion? Thank you so much, I appreaciate it if you could answer my question.
I honetly can’t speak for the majority of med students because dating is a personal choice. Dating in med school is hard, regardless.
In my class, a lot of med student-med student relationships that started last year fell apart over the end of the spring semester/summer. However, many med student-med student relationships in my class are thriving and awesome. There are so many factors to making it work or not and I really can’t speak for it. I did have a post awhile back interviewing a friend in my class who was (and still is!) dating a fellow classmate.
Personally, I never wanted to date a classmate (I did kind of play with one when I was single last year, but we’re cool because the boundaries and rules were set from the beginning that it was temporary). I always liked dating guys who were outside my normal circle of friends and interests.
It’s nice having things to share with the Cute Boy that he doesn’t know about, and he has had so many experiences and knows so much that I love hearing and learning. He likes hearing about the super gross and weird things- and he’s very supportive during the sad things (like the pediatric forensics cases). Plus, dating a musician works well for me as a med student because he really understands the commitment level and that med school frequently has to come first.
In my experience, the most important qualities in a partner for a med student is someone who has their own friends and activities so you don’t have to entertain them, and someone with the maturity to handle to crazy road that your life is hurtling down.
Again, dating is an extremely personal choice. It’s very difficult to add another person to all the things you have to juggle. I know several people in my class who have made the choice not to date so they can focus on school. Whatever you decide, make sure to keep yours and the other person’s best interests at heart.
