Would You Date Your Doctor?

When it comes to romantic fantasies, the doctor is in. Conventional wisdom tells us that everybody wants to fall in love with a good-looking doctor, the implication being that your health and your finances will be taken care of. In the modern age, this lusting apparently translates to patients stalking their doctors on Facebook.

Citing numerous reports of eager patients using the Internet to contact doctors for a date, a legal body for doctors in the UK is warning physicians not to respond to patient-initiated messages or pokes on Facebook because it could breach ethical standards. So maybe you're going to have to schedule a couple extra appointments if you want to get to know your doctor. Let's hope your insurance covers it. But first thing's first, is your doctor even date worthy?

I just don't find that doctor that attractive. No offense, but he has like a wide Mario Bros. nose or something. lol.

Haha when I was a senior in high school, there were a couple days where I was pretty sure that my prom date's dad was my gynecologist. Fortunately, it ended up not being another guy from his class's dad. Whew!

I wouldn't date my doctor, the man knows too much about me, it'd kill the sense of mystery. There are just some things partners shouldn't know, like what happens when I don't eat greens for a week. :( He's also much much much too old for me.

I'm with Pistil and snarky. Why wouldn't/shouldn't doctors have Facebook accounts?

spacekatgal- haha agreed! that doctor is a hottie! considering my doctor is a woman in her late 40's I'm going to say no.. lol Also I don't think I'd be comfortable having a doctor that is date-worth anyway. You have to tell them some pretty private stuff.. like how uncomfortable would you feel talking to some hottie about your period!

i'd never date MY doctor, but i'd totally date A doctor. i work with doctors so i know how to deal with their egos. (and most of them have facebook accounts. i don't know why that would be surprising)

Wow. You've got to be pretty desperate to facebook-stalk your doctor in an attempt to date him. Even if I had a super cute doctor, I would never think of asking him for a out, since as others have said, it's just completely inappropriate.

Doctors are people too... why can't they have a facebook account?

You would have thought doctors had BETTER things to do that scour facebook...If I was going to harrass a doctor on facebook, I'd only do it to make fun of the fact that he/she is on facebook.

My doctor is female. So, no, I wouldn't. If she were male and....I wasn't married and....we really hit it off and....he asked for MY number, then sure. Why not?

I've met hot doctors, but never had one myself. Honestly, I think I would be intimidated and thus less open with someone I personally found very attractive, so it's not a characteristic I find desirable when looking for a new doctor.

Considering he's been my doctor since I was in diapers? No way. Other than that he's married and has 5 kids.

I did date a doctor. We had a fun few months together :-)

Lol SKG & Mamasita, that was my first thought too... THAT doctor? Yes. My doctor? No. Besides the fact that he has a wife, 4 kids, and a neanderthal face, it would be too weird hooking up with someone who has already touched my vag a bunch of times without so much as buying me a drink first :P

Yes but I dont know if it would lead to anything. Hes my ObGyn and hes always running around everywhere. Hes a real busy man. I admire him.
gd101 gd101 7 years
no b/c i have a female doctor. 2nd, i did not know that some doctors have facebook accounts. funny to think that though :D lol
mamasitamalita mamasitamalita 7 years
agree with SKG -- that doctor is a babe! my doctor is both a woman and a raging bitch, so no.

I wouldn't mind dating a doctor, although I certainly wouldn't want to be married to a resident (too many hours on call, low pay = lots of fights). Maybe a nice, 30 something dermatologist at an attending level. Hmm :)
