2. As a former nurse....

I can say BLEACH to doctors.

Never dated a lawyer. Never had any strong desire to date one!

10. As a current nurse
(Who works in a teaching hospital)I concur: Blech. Double blech.
Lawyers, I dunno. Not if they're anything like doctors....

35. Which means you do not have ho's in different area codes.
Thus, you are not a true pimp.

7. It's more the promise of stability
I think, even moreso than the obvious dreams of $$$. The promise that whatever future children you have will be provided for. Not saying that's what people conciously think about when they see a potential mate who happens to be of the professional class, but it's definitely in the background.

9. I dated a female doctor once that wanted a house hubby
I still regret not going further with her... but, she looked like she could be the daughter of my Aunt, who is a religious fanatic type, and I couldn't get over that. I remember her telling me, "I want a guy who is smart, but not that smart" (i.e., would not have a career that challenged her role as the breadwinner) and, how she would have a child and then go right back to work while hubby stayed home to raise the baby.

Luckily, I have a wife now that could be the 100% breadwinner in our family in a few years... and, she is gorgeous and doesn't look like my aunt.

11. Yuck. Not me.
Edited on Sat Apr-08-06 06:33 PM by fudge stripe cookays
I dated a lawyer ONCE. And there was a reason for that.

The sonofabitch lied for a living, so why was I surprised that our entire relationship was a lie?

He was fucking around on his girlfriend/ex-girlfriend. By the time he got through with me, I had no idea what the truth was next to all the lies he spun. While he was telling me how amazing I was, and how wonderful I was, he was trying to figure out how to win back his ex (also a lawyer).

I found a diary in which he said that I wasn't as THIS as she was, wasn't as THAT as she was, wasn't as pretty, breasts not as big, but I was the only chance for sex he was going to have for awhile, so he was going to keep me around if only for that. :eyes:

You don't think THAT does a number on your self-esteem. GOD the amount of therapy I needed.....After that, I decided I would never screw a lawyer ever again. And doctors seemed to be in that same money-grubbing, power-hungry family. Not interested.

I married an artist who worships the ground I walk on. I'm the main breadwinner, and wouldn't have it any other way.

Mike, if you recognize yourself in the above description, it is only in the last few years of my true happiness that I quit wishing for your lengthy, drawn-out, painful death. Fucker.

15. A prosperous, intelligent man makes for good genetic material. He can
provide the support and ease of lifestyle that's worthy of (some of) us.

But frankly, all men who work at a career JUST for the money are really boring.

A man with passion for what he does is far more exciting.

32. I'm sure you would make a great house dad.
Be very aware of the ego that goes along with the professional (male or female)

Personally, I like a man that is doing what he loves to do simply for the sake of doing it. Paycheck be damned.

17. Money, Security
and knowing they won't have to work for a living is another. However, those women should know that feeling is an illusion at best.

18. I don't know.
Edited on Sun Apr-09-06 04:14 PM by Iniquitous Bunny
I guess they don't have a lot of mystique to me. My dad's a lawyer (just like everyone- there's good ones and bad ones) and I work with a lot of physicians (I know some that are very nice and others that just aren't quite as special as their egos think).

My true weakness in life seems to be Irishmen somehow involved in middle management. :shrug:

Then again, I'm a woman, not a girl.

24. Never dated either
when I was in The Dating Years. :scared:

According to my avatar, though, there's at least one I'm sorry I didn't meet before I said "I do" to someone else. :blush:

I see a shrink every 3 months for my meds and I've used two lawyers in the past month to help clear up past indescretions. Doctors and lawyers can be useful.

couple here and there for divorce and a speeding ticket or two.
as for doctors, I have found ER doctors and psychiatrists to be the most democratic.
The things we go through in the ER causes a bond that is strong and everyone MUST work as a team, no ONE person is more important than the other...

31. I'm not
Lawyers--well, my dad is one. And I loathe my father. So that's that.
Doctors? Mentally fucked up 99% of the time. And emotionally vulnerable.

I'm drawn to writers, poets, and otherwise quiet, unassuming people.

34. They're usually pretty sharp
And they usually make a good living.

So if you meet someone and they say "Hey, I'm a doctor," it's a helluva lot better opening line than "Hey, I'm a busboy."
