Will it be hard for me to get a Girlfriend during this Pandemic since I am dealing with sick people?

I am 22 and I used to be the infection control Nurse at our Hospital, but now since Covid 19 has engulfed everything, I am put on the front lines.

I am just saying that I never had a girlfriend before, and now since the virus is out and about, will it prevent girls from liking me or wanting to be with me? I want to have a partner, but its like they might think I am contagious and I may not ever have a partner cause of it. I remember on the news a girl told her now ex-boyfriend who is a Nurse "stay away from me you sick freak you're going to infect my family". I am just shocked the way these people react.

You're twenty-two. Relax. By next year I doubt most women your age will even remember much more about Coronavirus than having to stay at home for two months. They won't care.

I don’t think it will be an issue. Everyone that works in healthcare is in the same boat. Other nurses, doctors, etc. have significant others who are willing to work with the downsides that come with this profession. When things open up again, you will have opportunities for a relationship.

The good thing is right now you shouldn't really be searching for a relationship anyway since most places have stay at home type of orders in place, plus the whole social distancing thing.

When all is said and done, I can't imagine it being an issue. And if it is an issue for someone, they aren't worth your time.

You don't need to divulge the type of patients you're taking care of.

I can't...quite...remember...

What's that thing? HI.. HIP...HIPOH? HIPPITY?! AH...HIPAA

You're a nurse and leave it at that or be extremely vague. No one is entitled to know what you do except that patients, your team, your leadership, and the BON.

But, just in case it comes up, if you find a person that doesn't like you for taking care of COVID patients, then drop em' because you probably dodged a bullet.

Many, many of us have significant others and spouses. I would actually expect to see the divorce and break up rate higher among those not in healthcare field and being home together all the time. 🀣🀣

HIPAA has nothing to do with telling people you're taking care of COVID-19 positive patients.

So I am 22, and I have been talking to this girl she is my cousins friend, I HAVE BEEN talking to her through text and I like her and my cousin said that she likes me too we just haven't said anything about it.

She is an Accountant so she works from home, and the problem is she does not know what I do for a living. She doesn't know I work in a Dialysis Unit specifically for Covid patients, and I feel like if she asks me what I do for a living and I tell her "Yeah I deal with infectious diseases from a day-to-day basis" she will be disgusted and not want to be with me and be with someone else who is not dealing with sick people everyday.

I am just insecure because I never had a girlfriend before and feel like this is the only opportunity that I have. I am just scared to tell her that I am a Nurse.

The only opportunity?? You are 22 man!

Tell her your a nurse that works in dialysis. Don't need to disclose COVID-19 unless she asks.

With social distancing you will not be kissing her until the restrictions are lifted.

COVID is going to linger around until an effective vaccine or other treatment is found. It will be one of the many infections that we as nurses deal with. TB, VZV, ebola, VRE, MRE, C DIFF, CMV.......

many dialysis patients are colonised with MDRI such as VRE and MRSA. COVID is droplet transmission so much less worry than TB or VZV.
