Phd dating service
It was totally unexpected for me because I had decided that it was something I would consider after finishing the Ph D. I think having an understanding partner helps a lot because otherwise, things don't work as well.
Especially as one of my so-called friends told me not to do a Ph D because I wouldn't be able to find a guy from my community who would marry me. He can be supportive but doesn't even bother to fake an interest in what I do. To be honest I'm doing my Ph D in History over in the UK, and I would NEVER want to date someone within the same field as myself.
I spent the majority of my Ph D bemoaning the lack of men (or at least ones I was interested in!
), and having some rather funny or disastrous dates in an attempt to do something about it.
always correcting you, always bringing up the Ph D stuff i wanna take my mind off, trying to look show me that he knows a thing or two.
but then i have people to talk to at work about Ph D related things.
But in the end when you're working so hard it's difficult to meet anyone. ) Not entirely sure I would want to date [strange term when you're 40] another Ph D student.
Having said that - I then went to a conference and met someone - a postdoc, so now it's great in the last part of the Ph D to have someone who understands, cooks me dinner when I can't be bothered in the evening because I can't tear myself away from the work, & keeps telling me I'm doing fine. Last thing I want to do when I stop working is to listen to someones elses Ph D woes - have enough of my own.
:) or is it necessary that you look for someone who's undergoing the same experiences you're undergoing??? He works in an entirely different field and is not doing his Ph D.
I admit sometimes wishing he understood what it feels like when experiments repeatedly fail - and I really, really wish he knew how awful it is to write a thesis.
