Are Doctors Promiscuos?
I had to take some time to ponder this question. Male doctors may be especially more prone than female doctors to be flirts probably because of the nature of medical school; by the time a female doctor graduates, her biological clock has already started ticking and there is little time for unserious behaviour.
Before I answer if doctors are promiscuous, let me give the reasons why they MAY BE promiscuous.
Why Doctors may be promiscuos.
1. The stress of medical school
Medical School puts a lot of stress on any person, and if this is not properly handled, a ready outlet of frustration could be in promiscuity.
2. The duration of medical school
Like a bird set free from a cage (see angry birds), once doctors are released from medical school, they suddenly feel all the inhibitions loosening and are ready to explore what they missed.
3. People open up to Doctors
Doctors are good listeners which may be interpreted as caring, and they’ve seen you when you are most vulnerable. A patient or a patient’s relative can easily fall for a caring doctor.
4. Held to high esteem
A doctor/ medical student is quite respected by many peers, and dating one (in some cases) is seen as a choice pick.
5. Money to burn
Well, a Doctor that is ready to splurge his hard earned money can easily get a bevy of admirers.
6. Late Nights
Call Duty is a ready excuse for any overnight rendevouz.
So there you have it – but I’m not done yet, I have to give the other side of the argument- and this is the group I stand with
Why Doctors are not Promiscuos.
1. They’ve seen it all
Beauty is only skin deep, and medicine is a profession that recognises this.
2. They’re too busy
Too busy making money, too busy caring for their patients, or too busy writing exams.
3. They are aware of the risks of promiscuity
4. A lot of times they are nerds
Oh Oh, I didn’t just say that did I?
5. The duration of medical school
They are usually more mature when they finish school, and besides, most of their peers would be married.
Specialties at risk of promiscuity
A doctor is more prone to be promiscuos if he or she works in:
Obstetrics and Gynecology
In that order.
Do you agree?
