Dear LGBT SDN thread,

I am a lesbian and I was recently admitted to medical school. I have had some mixed luck dating in undergrad and it seems like a lot of people meet people they like and marry eventually in medical school (after all, they have couples matching and everything!). I would love to hear from some gay and lesbian doctors that are married how you met your spouses, specifically how easy it is to meet a spouse in med school. I will be attending a relatively rural medical school but it is by no means religious.

Thanks!!

Not married but I’ve been with my partner for 8 years. We met our first year of medical school and then couples matched for residency. We’re both attendings now and life has never been better (except for covid).

I'm OMS-I. If there are any single queer women at my school, I don't know about them. I'm in our queer student alliance so I feel like I would know. Thankfully I already have a partner. I don't like to be the bearer of bad news but I wouldn't bank on finding someone in medical school. I peeked on tinder out of curiosity and there were plenty of women but I'm in a city.
