    There's this amazing guy who i have been working with for the past four months. He's so cute, so charming, so rich (well, his parents...just kidding), and has the nicest personality. He asked me out twice, and i have given him the lamest excuse possible. He's white..I am a cute Asian..That doesn't mix too well with my parents. What should i do?? To date Or not to date that is the question???

    P.S. He's a great kisser (don't ask)

    I'm confused.

    Exactly what does this have to do with saying no to the Chief Resident?

    OMD, I'm not sure if that's a compliment are pointing to the fact that I lead a somewhat pathetic, internet-based existence. [​IMG]

    That's pretty impressive, the 500 and 600 club, but watch out for me! I have over 160 posts racked up and it's only been 1 month! [​IMG]

    Jacqueline, you should lead your own life and if you like the chief, then go for him. You can't let your parents decide what path your life will lead. I know about disapproving parents and believe me, they'll get over it. It's your life, YOU should be happy.

    J-At what stage are you in medicine? I ask b/c I have a female friend who is a second year this year (I'm going into my first year)
    and she got involved with the chief ER resident during her first year. It was not a great idea. Amazingly, they are still good friends, but the situation got very frustrating for her due to the gap in career timelines. She was for a good while the object of a great amount of jealousy and even some overt animosity from female docs, nurses, other med students, etc.; she felt frustrated b/c the man in question tried to help her to the point of steering her every career move- and it could have been much worse for both of them if it hadn't ended when it had, and by his initiative. (Imagine if she'd broken it off and he felt resentful)

    My advice to you is be pretty cautious if you are substantially behind him in years.

    J- look up Dr. Eric L. Weiss when you're there. He's an ER attending and a super nice guy!
