It takes someone w/more courage and willingness to learn for the details of disease or injury to the human body than I have, but then again, it doesn't keep me from having either character trait for caring to be who they might turn to for their replenishment of their human spirit. Only very few of the nurses that I have worked with are physically attractive.(If anyone of my coworkers, or ex-coworkers should read this, you can be assured that YOU were one of the few very attractive ones!! I can imagine that any profession where there are literally hundreds of women in one building, the word will get around...
There's something about sticking a needle and syringe in someone else's a** that just doesn't compute w/me for being able to solve all their needs, even if these sometimes work small miracles. w/ more maturity couldn't work her newer magic on me, but nurses tend to cover their intellectual a**es ..that's the kind of healthcare professional that I'd prefer to have looking out for me ..personally, as 12, not dated many but know lots, sister in that line of work( over 20 years), met many of her friends......... I dont care if they are nurtuting, I am not attracted to large women. Just a guess, but probably as scientific as the OP's analysis of the nurse/POF'er ratio Britgal, Not from what I've seen.
I havent noticed that, maybe its just the people your drawn to.... Far as dating a nurse, its not for me, I have met a few in real life and they are often not very attractive. More like emotionally unavailable, but then again when you work on a guy that codes from a stabbing, just to bring him back, just to have someone come in with a gun and shoot him after you brought him back..yeah asking "honey how was your day" just doesn't do it, and God help you if you have needs.
they are not for fish, how many nurses have you dated?? lol I don't think I have met a guy yet who has turned down a date with a nurse! Its a stressful thankless job with high divorce rates.
We just have to be pretty damn good at dealing with stress, emergencies, and watching people suffer at times.
I found that nurses have a different kind of personality then the average person. It’s hard to put a finger on it, but for some reason they seem more down to earth. As for why there might be more medical professionals on a dating website then other professions. Although a large percentage of nurses, whom one might assume to be great at judging character, seem to be able to pick out the biggest jerks and losers to date. My mother is a nurse and has been an RN for the last 27 years.
Mustang, I have been in the medical field for many years, working in very stressful areas.
Even if someone is studying to enter into the medical field schooling for it alone is very demanding. As for people who are actually in a medical profession, again it's time.
demands wise and my hat is off to them, but I just can't date another one. NO WAY." So I guess she knew what she was talking about!! There is a lot of stress in the medical field, but as for me the problem is with time. Even when I am off work I am usually on call and have to be within a 5(five) minute drive from our service.
The one time I tried and she found out I was married to one, she came out and asked my point blank..."WHAT? Those in the field are likely more secure and confident in the mental health department.
Remember that we are the largest free online dating service, so you will never have to pay a dime to meet your is there so many people on this site that work in the medical/health field.
it seems as though there is disportionate number of people here that work in this field.
As for moonfish, i work with alot of nurses, and yes there are some of them that are not that attractive, but there are alot that are down right gorgeous, and if i were you i wouldnt be judging someone else on their looks...
