Reasons Why You Should Date a Nurse

If there’s one thing that could always brighten up a person’s day, it would be discussions about love and the like. Being surrounded by a stressful environment and being part of a demanding job, wouldn’t it be nice to actually have someone who could turn your bad day into a good one?

You often see nurses, either dressed in all-white or the colorful scrubs, roving around the hospital and caring for the sick. You have seen how they spend hours and hours almost every day being the angel of the sick room and how devotedly they perform their nursing duties.

All-smiles and a soothing voice. Admit it, at one point in your life, you’ve had a crush on a nurse. Folk or the patient itself, you’ve always waited for that “nurse” to enter the room with his/her bright smile (even if it means taking your not-so-yummy-tasting medications).

But wait, how would it be like dating one? Below are some reasons why you should consider dating a nurse.

Nurses take care of people on a daily basis. Hey, it’s our job! Sick? Injured? In pain? We’re here to save the day. Trust that we’d know what to do. You have your medical service and care for free.

Nurses are compassionate

Nurses are known to be good listeners. Believe that we do not only listen to you blabber about your never-ending problems, or even just complaints about a bad day, we are also genuinely, truthfully and sincerely concerned about you. Not only that, we are also equipped to handle difficult situations. We know how to put ourselves in other people’s shoes. Know that we will always be there.

Nurses are “chill”

Yup, nurses have quite impressive nerves. When it comes to emergency situations (not necessary related to medical emergencies), we are known to be calm and collected. We tend to act calmly and think rationally, instead of getting all panicky and I’m-about-to-go-crazy wild when it comes to those. Yes, nurses are tough and we have super powers *wink*.

Gross? Nope.

We don’t easily get queasy over blood and dirty cleaning jobs at home. We’ve spent years addressing patients with severe injuries, we’ve seen lots of blood and other stuff you wouldn’t even want to know. So, what’s a few dirty dishes to deal with at home? (But hey, please don’t abuse this I’m-not-queasy-so-i-don’t-have-a-problem-with-cleaning-the-house attitude, we have an exhausting job, too).

Nurses are smart

Has anyone ever told you that we worked our heads off just to survive nursing school? We’ve been through lots of trainings and had to learn tons of mind boggling things, just to get where we are right now. Nursing is no joke and you need to have the brains to be in this profession. So, if you’re into the beauty and brains type, you know who to look for.

Your insecurities and body quirks do not faze us

We’ve seen bodies of all shapes and sizes, good, bad and the ugly. Once you’ve been in the nursing profession for so long, not so many things can disgust or shock you. Body anomalies do not intimidate us.

Nurses are hardworking

Nurses work hours and hours every day just to fulfill their nursing responsibilities. We are not known to give up, instead, we give everything the best that we can in knowing that lives depend on us. But hey, us being hardworking and fighters do not only apply to the work setting. Expect your date to exert the same amount of effort and commitment to make the relationship work.

We know how to give CPR

Again, super powers. Kidding aside, yes we know how to do CPR. Also, you get instant access to free disease prevention tips, and safety advice. So, in emergency cases such as in life and death situations and you want to live, well…
