dating website kostenlos Kiel - Hard dating a doctor
Heidi Huser, a family practitioner who works in a Minnesota urgent care facility, considers herself a catch — funny, smart, stable, and easygoing.But some of those qualities make her male suitors insecure, says the 39-year-old."One guy I went to dinner with brought his pay stub," she recalls.
The payoff was the promise of future high earnings and hours that would, in time, become more manageable.
But today's young doctors, most of them women, don't want to waste their youth working a backbreaking schedule, in part because they'd like to have children and don't think they can afford to wait.
Like Huser, 29-year-old Brittany Christophersen, a registered diet technician and aspiring physician's assistant who recently completed her clinical internship and now works at a major metropolitan hospital in Connecticut, says she has trouble meeting a man who understands her chaotic schedule and long hours."I have been flat out given ultimatums, and I've been broken up with twice because of my career," says Christophersen, recalling her recent breakup with a guy who was concerned that her grueling career would get in the way of having and raising children.
"He said, 'I want to know if you can scale it back or it isn't gonna work,'" she says.
"If I was working a 36-hour shift, he'd come by and kiss me on the forehead and tuck me into bed."Parrott recognized that someone so flexible is a keeper, so she married him.
