Dr. Charming

So readers, I’ve been so busy living my new life that I’ve hardly had the time to actually blog about it! I’ve been here in Peach City for just about six weeks now. People have told me the dating scene down here is horrendous, but I figured it couldn’t be any worse than what my love life was like back up north. Up there, it was SO bad, it was on life support!

You know I’ve been actively dating online for a while now. Well, as soon as I unpacked my car that Sunday, I decided to update my profile to reflect my new city. I instantly got a hit. That Wednesday I was supposed to go out with a great catch. He was a tall, handsome doctor who owned a home and a condo., loved to travel all the time, dressed well, and so on and so forth. Well, he had to postpone because he had an emergency C-section.– greatest excuse I’d heard in a LONG time! We were able to meet up the next day. He was great! Handsome, smart, charismatic. I refused to believe that I’d met my Prince Charming just four days after moving down here, but he allowed me to see that there really are good men out there and to “keep hope alive!”

I didn’t really think we had that great a connection, but was willing to give him another chance. I mean, he’s the kind of guy a mom dreams of for her daughter. As we were leaving, he asked if I wanted to meet up again Saturday morning. I told him I was busy. But I was almost willing to cancel my plans to see him again. He then asked what I was doing on Monday.
“Nothing,” I said.
“Ok, we’ll meet up Monday then” said Dr. Charming.

Alas, Dr. Charming DID have a wart a two.  I called him Saturday morning. No answer. No return call. Then I texted him Sunday night just to say hey and looking forward to Monday. No response. Monday, a text asking if we were meeting up. Nothing. A week later I called to say what’s up. Again, no response. Oh well! Some things are just too good to be true! Back to kissing toads for me!

    • Why are you shaking your head? I gave him a chance! He was the one who bounced like a bad check!

  2. I can’t wait to bat down women with a stick who look at my life and only see possessions and profession. Being a physician has lost its appeal in the dating world. You need to catch us before we’re residents. Once residency begins, free time is few and far between and our own list of demands increases proportionately, as do our standards. If this guy is in obstetrics, you will need to get used to dating someone on call. We’re very familiar with doctor-chasers, hence our proclivity towards things like jokes about prenuptial agreements. Prior to residency, nobody gives us the time of day. A woman who likes me ahead of time, prior to becoming an attending physician, is much more appealing in terms of character. I didn’t go the MD route for the reputation. Even if your attraction to this man had nothing to do with what I’ve just described, the pieces are there and as someone who plans on making a life in this field, I would be very wary of your motives. Good luck with finding what you consider a catch.

    • Thanks for your opinion. But as you continue to read my blog and look at past postings, I date guys from a variety of professions. Doctors, teachers, engineers, nurses, bus drivers… I’m open. But my mother would LOVE for me to date a doctor or lawyer. And I know the hours would be a negative to some, but it actually works with me because I often have crazy hours too. I am in no way a doctor chaser. I’d actually much rather marry a teacher because if we have kids, they’d be off the same time as the kids and save on child care!
