Doctors have only two kinds of relationships.They are hooked up in medical school and are screwed for the rest of their lives or they screw all their lives and never really hook up.
What ever they do they are never really prepared for the world outside. After joining medical school social development appears to cease. One is always so immersed in what to do next be it exams, licensures, visas, research, travel, academia and patients that one doesn’t know what to do when confronted by another human being.Especially if they are fit and well of the opposite sex and even remotely interested in you in a romantic sort of way.
Don’t blame me, blame the system is my only excuse. After quite a few very good first dates and then no dates at all I accept there is a definite pattern here.
No not all men I meet can be social retards, discourteous, rude and just plain psychopaths. I have been doing some soul searching and this is what I have come up with.
Men are very socially
Every man has a fantasy of the kind of woman he would like to date. No you can never match up to it. Don’t hold that against them.This is perfectly reasonable and acceptable in the real world.
A quick call to ‘just say hi’ is a major threat to educated, working well placed single men. They run like they have to protect their virginity.They should be allowed to.
Being asked about your virginity is OK as only you can prove or disprove that myth.If you ask a man you are committing blasphemy as they have no such concept made for men.
There are 48 hours/72 hours/weekly rules in the game of dating. You never call until 48 hours have passed after a date.You appear needy. If you haven’t heard from your date in 72 hours, they are just not that into you. A week and no word, please move on to the next available.It is a game after all.
No calls followed by an uncomfortable e-mail is not rude behaviour or being discourteous, it is a message being shouted out loud for you. Your date is never going to date you again.
Gone are the days that you should make your feelings clear at any point.Chase and only the chase is what keeps a relationship going. Yup, you can thank me for finally introducing you to the latest concept.
Oh and please, no gifts at all.Not even if it is an Indian handicraft book marker for Rs 38.That is like a diamond ring with you on your knees.Can you blame the poor guy to get totally freaked out??!!
I wish I grew up socially when everyone else did.I feel like one big 28 year old with Social Down’s Syndrome. Try and get the pun will ya. 😀
