Even assuming we’re talking about dating going somewhere serious, if it’s just dating good luck. Most people are pissed to date a resident/doctor, I know I’m pissed just being one myself.

Whelan reports that by 2008, men’s interest in a woman’s education and intelligence had risen to No. 4, just after mutual attraction, dependable character and emotional stability.
