I'm only 21, but I started medical school already. The thing is, people have told me that girls shy away from doctors because they believe that they won't have time for them. I have a hard time countering this argument because, believe me, I've been so inundated with work already that it's been consuming all my time and energy. Still, I do have outside interests; I love music and movies and books, I like to play and watch sports and I still make time for those things. So I'd like to believe that I would be able to make time and that I'm an interesting person.

You sound like a pretty smart guy - and it's great to believe you can make time to date a girl.. But have a relationship with one while going to medical school would be a challenge for the reasons you stated. You simply will not have a lot of time! But that doesn't mean you can't DATE! If you meet a girl you really like - you just tell her.. "Look, I like you so much but school is going to take a lot of my time Not that I can't make time for you - but it may be hard. If you can accept that - great. If not, then we need to part ways now before we get too involved".. Then let her make the decision. The standard "joke" is that a Dr is on call 24 hrs a day - 7 days a week and it does present a challenge. BUT if you are with the right girl .. who loves you.. ANYTHING is possible -- I trust that your mature attitude will help you find a compromise. Good luck with school!1
