    It's going great, we're inseparable, I actually think my stethoscope is going to propose soon. In all honesty though its ok. In the beginning of school my boyfriend would often send messages to me on skype asking if I was still alive. Now he's kind of used to it, but its definitely not easy for us not being able to hang out as much as we did keeping in mind that since it is a long distance relationship at the moment it already isn't easy. He did surprise me by showing up on my doorstep after last quarter's finals though.

    Assuming I get accepted, I'm starting NS in January. I'll be 31. Perfect age to not be too much of an "old man" to the younger girls but old enough to have the maturity that girls appreciate in "older" guys... lol. Plus I'm single and straight. All boxes will be checked.

    I can't wait to see what happens.

    when u say surprised...did he caught you cheating on him in bed with the stethoscope and a pharmacology textbook? kidding. But seriously, that is actually really nice of him and its simple things like that could help you guys make it through the hard times . Not arguing about time you don't have, but making the most of the little time you do have....just think of a future with 3 day work weeks, sometimes that is all that keeps me going.

    I was set on putting my dating life on hold when I first entered nursing school. It's incredibly demanding on you time and energy , and couldn't imagine fitting a boyfriend into that. But, at the end of my second semester, I started dating another nursing student in my program, and you know what? It works! We both know how demanding school is, and both feel the same stress and constraints so we're very understanding of each other. I consider myself a very lucky girl to have met him!

    I've never even been on a date. Never been kissed. No guy on the horizon.
    School school school school school.
    And repeat till there is an RN behind my name.

    Well, I've been on dates, been kissed, but that last part? PREACH IT, SISTER.

    Lol first thought when I saw this thread, "Dating? What's that?"

    OH YEAH, it's just one more thing I don't have time for. Ever.

    My dating life is awesome. On weeks I have tests, he helps quiz me and study, he always makes sure I have my homework done and getting good grades. If we have a two time span between both our busy schedules we either call each other or grab a quick bite to eat. We've dated 6.5 years, both in school full time and have part time jobs, which I work overnights and live an hour apart. When you really care for someone, you make your relationship work with the time you have. I don't see myself going through nursing school without his support.

    I think your date probably found your conversation stimulating, and viewed you as a "challenge"... Im sure since he's still calling it wasnt as bad as you thought it was! Good Luck
