    Why does: 'Fiona59's 'overly religious types' always a counter reaction to 'proud gays and Lesbians' the latter so much better than the former. Tiresome.

    Quote from Fiona59

    I find they hypercritical, judgmental overly religious types harder to work with.

    I don't bring my sexuality or religious beliefs to work. Everyone gets a Merry Cristsmas, Happy Hannukah, Happy Hogmanay from me.
    Amen to that, sister!

    The fact that a person can be compassionate and caring is an attractive quality, for men and women. I think it is a myth that men don't have compassion and cannot be caregivers is wrong. Why would a male nurse not be "attractive". For me personally, I prefer a man who is caring and intelligent, so I'd date a doctor or a nurse. This assumes that most nurses and doctors do actually care about their patients, which I think is true.

    In my experience, its hit or miss. With female nurses, it doesn't seem to be as much an issue for obvious reasons. That said, some women are attracted to the classic "manly man" and being a male nurse takes away from that persona, but its really about confidence and ultimately attraction and the success of relationships are going to depend on a myriad of factors. I've also found it can be an advantage in some cases. Showing your feminine side (or at least appearing to have one) puts some women at ease and makes it easier to have a conversation, during which you may choose to highlight your more masculine characteristics.

    In the end it depends on each individual women. Some will care and others won't. I've never found it to be a problem.
