"Honey, why is my pizza in a biohazard bag?"

2. But you soon discover that it's a lot more like this:

"Hey baby, want to fool around?" "NO TOO TIRED."

3. You quickly get used to dates being cancelled.

Especially if you're dating a trauma nurse. After all, accident victims need them way more than you do.

4. And you've probably spent more than your fair share of romantic occasions in a hospital canteen.

"Happy Valentine's Day, darling! I bought you this milkshake and a diabetes testing kit." "Uhhh, thanks?"


6. You can always rely on them to have an entertaining or gross story to share on dates.

Mainly about stuff guys have put up their butts.

8. You spend a hell of a lot of your time listening to them complain about doctors, too.

Mainly just saying: "Uh huh? No way!" and nodding while they tell you about a patronising medical student or a stuck-up consultant.


11. ...and your bed usually looks like this:

Because if they're not working, they're usually studying.

12. You spend a lot of time being a guinea pig too.

This is my Sunday dating a nurse needing IV practice.

Don't date a nurse if you don't like needles.


14. Which means you find some pretty damn weird things lying around the place.

Well, that's one way to package leftovers I guess.

15. But on the plus side, you're never short of medical supplies.

Because it's always handy to have a laxative saline enema around the house.

16. Their taste in shoes is usually a bit...questionable.

At any given moment, your shared closet contains about seven pairs of Crocs, some neon trainers, and two pairs of waterproof clogs.


17. You quickly learn not to piss them off when they're shifting from day shifts to night shifts.

It's like PMS crossed with a hangover crossed with jet lag, and if you put a foot wrong you'll end up in the firing line.

20. You love it when other people appreciate them as much as you do.

When they come home and tell you about a patient who thanked them, or a present they were given, it really makes your day.

21. And you'll support them no matter what.

It would be nice if they could quit sharing those poop stories, though.
