I am a 3rd year medical student and I am single. I don't have time to be in a serious relationship right now and a lot of the girls I go out with don't want to be in a relationship with someone who's as busy as me. Doing well in the wards is important to me and I often stay an hour or two extra to help the team out, I also spend all weekdays reading and going to the gym or sleeping, if I am not at the hospital. My free time right now is basically just on the weekends, and I don't think I'll have more free time once I become a resident. I have also noticed that a lot of the residents and even fellow students are already married or engaged to be married. So my question is am I doomed to be single until I finish residency? It seems like if you don't have a significant other by now it's almost impossible to meet someone. I eventually want to get married and have a family but just don't see how I will have time for that. Anyone else in my situation? Anyone start a residency while being single and now in a successful serious relationship? I know that I can always date residents or nurses but how many of you have actually met someone from a non-medical profession? all comments are welcome, and than you in advance for the replies.
