Dating a resident doctor
So far I have not brought up any of this with him I'm trying to offer all of that support and space you mentioned and I wanted to give him the chance to do it himself.I figured he may still be finding his feet in his residency and as we grow closer, he might start putting in more effort.And to be fair, he always does contact me to see each other eventually...it's just not as often as I would like.
So we'll drink the beer I brought over and I give him a back massage and go down on him (luckily he does return the favor in terms of physical stuff when he 's less tired and we have amazing sex).
But my struggle is with whether or not he is willing to give with sacrifice and commitment, and how much of this has to do with me vs. For instance, I am okay with the us not seeing each other very often part.
So I'm wondering if things will ever change or if this is just one of the drawbacks of dating a doctor?
I know residency is particularly bad, but what about when he finishes that?
I haven't talked to him about it yet because I was hoping things would change once we dated for awhile and his feelings for me deepened.
I also didn't want to push him away by overwhelming him with talks about commitment when he's already stressed.
How do you maintain a healthy balance with relationships and work when your partner has a more demanding profession than you?
Are the sacrifices you make for your partner worth it, and do you have any tips for making it work?
So I'm wondering..the way he's treating me normal for someone who is in their residency?Tags: Adult Dating, affair dating, sex dating
