Fair warning: This post is long, but I wanted to gather as much advice from people at different points in the dating scene!
We met at a Med-Law Malpractice Bowl Flag Football game and our relationship has been all touchdowns and no penalty flags (please laugh).
I wanted to share advice on how to stay true to yourself while dating in medical school!
When it comes to communication, verbal communication is very important.
For me, that communication can be small things like checking in to see how she is, how her day was, and what she is looking forward to.
C) Communicate – Let your significant other KNOW when you have an exam coming up, let them KNOW if something is bothering you (even if it might seem irrelevant), let them KNOW how upset it actually made you that they ate the last of the salsa in the fridge.
Otherwise you might implode – and no one wants to see that, not even your Momma.
Yes, you lose the luxury of being in each other’s presence, so you need to make up for it somehow.
Communication is key – I like texting and sending him Snapchats of my day, so he more or less knows what I’m going through.
Here are some ABC’s 🙂 A) Academics is a top priority (it’s your dream to be a doctor, isn’t it? Make sure your SO understands this in the beginning of the relationship, otherwise they will feel like you are cheating on them with Med School, and that is just a weird concept to wrap your head around.
Since he and I are both students, we frequently study together. Well, with us both being busy during the day, we decided to take an MMA workout class together in order to hang out and stay on top of our health.
Dearest Reader, Roses are Red Violets are Blue Med school is tough But so are you!
