Someone putting doctor on their tinder/internet dating profile... Bit cringe?

NeedACleverNN Wed 10-Aug-16 22:52:40

Why? It's the job isn't it?

Bearasarahus Wed 10-Aug-16 22:52:51

If they are a doctor obviously! blush

Unless it's Dr Lurve...grin

Bearasarahus Wed 10-Aug-16 22:53:42

In their bio though... So for example on tinder it just has a one line bio, a guy has just written "doctor" in his confused

Bearasarahus Wed 10-Aug-16 22:53:57

Ha destiny, could be yeah! wink

Perhaps they've got a PhD in lovemaking - could be useful to know. If medical doctor, could be useful to have around.

Bearasarahus Wed 10-Aug-16 22:55:59

Haha yes a medical doctor. I just think it's playing into the whole all women love doctors scenario a bit?!

Some people love a doctor so maybe that's all they need to put!!!

Bearasarahus Wed 10-Aug-16 22:57:01

It just suggests your job defines you a bit though doesn't it? Or am I overthinking blush

It works for me smile

I'm pretty sure I read somewhere that 'Doctor' and 'Pilot' were the two biggest lies on Tinder, when it came to stating an occupation.

Could actually be a good way of getting a GP appointment at a time to suit you.

I'd bet my house he was a gynaecologist!

Bearasarahus Wed 10-Aug-16 23:14:49

Loll yes okay fingers crossed we match then because it's bloody hard round here to get a gp appt!

That might be the biggest thing in their life and what they spend most of their time doing. If you don't like, spin on. I like doctors grin YABU

Or it could just mean that being a doctor is a huge part of his life. If he works in a hospital that that might mean shift working and weekend work. It's not an unreasonable thing to tell a prospective partner.

As an aside I do know a woman who met her pilot DH via OLD...

Ask him what his diagnosis is...

Worst on line date ever with a pilot.
2nd worst with a guy who had a phd. Think he had asbergers too. But the pilot was way worse.
