My suggestion and really, this applies to everyone, no matter what profession your partner : Fill your life — with friends, with furry three-legged cats, with books, with traveland when you're reunited because his shifts have lightened up?
Think of how interesting you'll be. Not only that, but when he walks in the door after a grueling shift and you've been anxiously waiting for him to come home so you can fill him on idle work gossip, he's not always up for it. Don't take it personally. It's not because he doesn't love you and isn't interested, it's because he is so physically and emotionally drained that he needs time to decompress.

I've learned — okay, I'm still learning — not to hound him the moment he walks in the door. My mantra: No big shares while there's still blood on his scrubs. Let him have his space, get some food in his belly, and then start the conversation. Or save it for his day off. This practice is still hard for an untrained, overeager puppy like me who wants to emote every feeling every second she feels it.
Why DOES it feel so good? But it's hard. I'm still working on it. Oh, you had dinner plans at 8 at that brand new Mexican place?
What to expect when dating a resident?
Ahhhh, well, guess what? You're ridin' solo now, my friend, because ata patient in the ICU crashed and he'll be there for at least two more hours doing paperwork. My suggestion: Always have a Plan B or start enjoying meals by yourself — I swear, sushi tastes better with a good book!
Or start a blog. Or get a cat. Or call me, because I'm probably available.
A note on vacation time: First-year residents get 2 two-week vacations. But don't make the same mistake we did and take it a month into residency. To be fair, it was my sister's wedding and we didn't have much a choice. But still, learn from us and spread those two week vacas out or those hospital stretches are going to feel like for-ev-er. What I've found to be helpful in managing expectations is to simply have no expectations.
Thinking about dating a medical resident? They're worth it, but there are a few things you should know before you take the plunge.
