    Oh man i'm having trouble myself. I like this girl at university who is also doing nursing, trouble is don't know if she likes me. My friends say i should ask her out, that i have nothing to loose. However i feel if i do ask her out now it will ruin our friendship. At the moment i'm on holidays return to uni on monday. During the semester i will see how things go that's my approach. I'm to shy though, please tell me what to do!!!
    You should ask her is too short for games ........ if it is meant to will happen.....if could just stalk just kidding...........

    Regardless of what we do, we make sure and do SOMETHING together, just the two of us.

    I'm lucky to have such a supportive boyfriend. We have a house and he takes care of everything, he calls me his....investment.
    He also works full time and is currently starting his own biz. It takes up so much of his time, he comes home and goes straight to work. It gives me tons of time to study. like the other posts, we try to do something together, we have friends who work at some of the casinos and they get us deals on rooms. It's nice to do that, makes us feel like we're on vaccation.

    I have had the good luck of a supportive fiancee as well. I work nights 4 days a week. So our together time is VERY limited during the week. But on Sunday nights (testing days are Monday and Tuesday) he goes through my note cards with me. He's so cute. I'll hand him the stack of notecards I made and he'll look at em and try and pronounce what it says. He'd look at it, try to pronounce it and then say "what does that say?"

    His favorite notecard I ever made was not something for school, but something I had written down to remember. My nephew was diagnosed with solitary mastocytosis (sp?). When he looked at the note card, he looked at the word, couldn't pronounce it, and when I told him what it meant (its a single red dot on the skin) he just fell over. He gets a kick at the long words that mean simple things.

    The weekends are us time. We usually go fishing. Unless its been a hard week and my brain is full, we'll go have a few drinks to empty my

    I digress......

    Hopefullly everyones relationship will make it through. Jake (my man) was kind enough to postpone our wedding until I am through with school. I didn't want to have to worry about school and planning a wedding at the same time.

    I got divorced after nursing school but it was tough then. WE most definately were not close after those tough years.

    It would be nice to have the support of a GF while in school. HAven't been in a relationship for quite a while But I suppose being in a relationship would also have its troubles. Being a male going into nursing with all those females maybe there's hope yet

    I would say that it's bad timing to start up a new relationship while in nursing school.

    However, the study buddy idea sounds good. Also, if several of the students get together for lunch, try sitting by him or her and talk. This will help you open up and get to know a person.
