A "dating female students in your class" post - page 5

Well, having just completed my 1st semester of the nursing program, I have found that as a single guy, you are really in (at times) a very weird catch-22 being in a female-dominated student body. ... Read More

    I am one of the girls in the class. it is kinda weird because the guys get so much attention from the teachers and the students.
    needless to say I began a completely physical relationships with one of the 2 guys in our class. We have no intentions on dating just getting our school stress out! maybe you could try that . I have to admit its pretty fun, just you both have to agree mums the word and itt won't be more than that.:redpinkhe

    All the guys in my class are occupied. Everyone gets along. There's great camaraderie amongst all 70 of us, male and female.

    When NS is done, I'll sure miss all the eye candy!!!

    most of the women in our class are midage, and the guys in the class are in their 20s. i think its better to start dating once you got your career going.

    Dunno how much longer I can deal with this!! (see post above). I find myself staring at her constantly and always talking to her during lecture breaks. We've all seen what can happen with dating a classmate from the previous stories in this thread, but I really don't know what to do! We both work and go to school so its not like we'd even have time to see each other outside of class (this is all assuming she's interested which she kind of seems to be).

    Should I just go for it and see what happens?

    Anyway to make a long story short he went from a high B to a low C and barely managed to graduate once he woke up and pulled his head out of his butt.
    There were a couple girls in my class I would have given up a one 1.5 drop in GPA for. Fortunately (or unfortunately) it never came to that.

    There are very few times I regret my advanced age. But one of the laments I have is that I was a generation too soon for the FWB phenomenae.

    I'm a male in nursing school, and I am also the youngest in my program at 18. There are four other guys in my class of 20, but they are all mid 20s to late 30s. All four of them are married or in a long-term relationship with someone. The majority of the women in my class are at least 24, and some are in their late 30s. Needless to say, I'm not interested in them, and they aren't interested in me. I made a commitment to myself that I would not date anyone until after I had graduated nursing school, landed a job (hopefully in ICU), and gotten off orientation as a new graduate nurse. Even if there was a girl my age who wasn't taken, or who was interested, I would refuse to date her. The last thing I need is to get caught up in a relationship and cause my grades to suffer. For some reason, everyone in my program views me as the smartest student, and they always come to me with questions in both class and clinical. Because they view me as so intelligent, I don't want to let them down by not being able to answer the question or tell them where to find the information. I also don't want to let myself down by making less than an A during this semester. I feel like if I was seeing someone, I wouldn't have the time to study properly, I wouldn't be able to help my classmates, and I wouldn't be able to keep my A average. To me, it just isn't worth it.

    Too bad you are not older and graduated, and working

    I thought this was a very interesting thread, and had some good points on both sides of the argument. As a student that is starting this Jan, the whole dating thing has crossed my mind already.

    In graduate school. You're placed in small classes, with the same people, each and every day, for hours on end. I imagine nursing will be similar.

    It's kinda only natural for some bonds to develop over time, especially if you have some attractive qualities that you know how to promote.

    I got intimate with a girl in the beginning of my graduate school program, and it was great. We had fun, we learned and challenged each other, we released stress, it was pretty awesome.

    Grades didn't suffer at all either... because we had a good balance of work and play.

    But after stuff went sour... it sucked

    Not only is being forced to see someone you don't want to see difficult, but you also get 'branded'. You're still "(girl's name) guy", and you can say goodbye to any other chances with any other females. They talk. They talk about you, both good and bad.

    And I can't even blame them, because they don't want the 'leftover' of another girl in class. At least thats how I justify it.

    I'm entering nursing school as a late 20's now, and I'm not sure what I'm going to do relationship wise. I'm wiser now, but hey... ya never know what life holds.
