Dating for doctors
Forty-eight percent said Match, a paid site, but Plenty Of Fish (free) and e Harmony (paid) tied for second most popular, with 23 percent apiece.
But in terms of overall satisfaction, our survey found that free dating sites actually score a touch better than paid ones, probably because they're a better value.
So a person who randomly sends out dozens of “hey” messages to would-be dates would have to pay a higher price to make contacts than someone who does it more selectively. Our survey suggests that 45 percent of online daters have tried multiple dating websites or apps.

Even the laid-back ones are usually neurotic about something." Jessica: "A lot of us are obsessive.
Though, to a certain extent, I think anyone who is successful in their field has some sort of obsessive quality." Jessica: "When I say I work in medicine, the question I get a lot is, 'Are you a nurse?
' I feel this is an assumption that gives you an idea of the type of guy who is approaching you." Hailey: "The most common questions I get are, 'Why didn’t you want to be a nurse?
I had forgotten that images of bodily fluids and internal organs can be hard for the non-medical person to stomach." Hailey: "All of my conversations revolve around urine, blood and feces, so it makes my 'outside the hospital' conversations pretty awkward." Jessica: "You should enjoy learning new things.
A doctor will come home with fresh stories to share every day." Michelle: "It helps if you can provide some sense of solace when she comes home feeling like the weight of the world is on her shoulders." Hailey: "A lot of my co-workers are dating or married to other doctors, I think because they can really relate to what you're going through.
