Here is why.
I would come back from one of our weekends together and they would ask how it was and I would talk about how amazing it was and what all we did. I actually had one of my friends say to me, " why are you worried about what he is doing when you aren't there he spends hundreds of dollars on you when you are there who cares that he hasn't texted you".
My husband had quite a late start in his career; he will be almost 40 by the time he starts residency so I feel we are already way behind in that sense, but also he has had a very hard time getting into residency as he went to med school outside the US.
It has already taken him us 3 years since he got out of school and finally just matched this year.
This blog has been so helpful. I'm 22 and I have been dating a med student for 3 years.
