24 Things Everyone Who Dates A Doctor Will Understand
Let's talk about those hours.
Your S.O.'s working hours are probably not the same as yours.
And they've forced you to redefine your idea of what "busy" means.
But on the rare occasion that they can commit to a date and a time, it makes you really happy.
That said, you're usually the "planner" in the relationship.
Dating a doctor has definitely made you more understanding.
And it takes a lot to gross you out nowadays.
But when they do get real downtime, it's pretty damn blissful.
Because your S.O. seriously knows how to have fun.
You've also become an ace at medical-themed gifts.
You know the best hacks for removing blood stains.
And you've never had to go to hospital to get your stitches removed.
Given the nature of their job, your OH always comes home exhausted.
So a lot of your date nights are spent falling asleep in front of Netflix.
You watch a lot of Grey's Anatomy, Scrubs, and House together.
And because you spend so much time with their friends, you really get the junior doctor strikes.
You're both pretty hot on what sterilization actually means.
Even though you both try not to bring work home, you know they do.
Which is why you're a great listener.
If you're dating someone studying Meds, you know you have it tougher than most.
Which is why you kind of pray they'll specialise as a GP.
But regardless of their speciality, you're damn proud of them.
