What's it like to date a psychiatrist? (Not my own)

Question - (27 November 2010) 2 Answers - (Newest, 28 November 2010)
A female United States age 30-35, anonymous writes:

I've been joking back and forth for a while with a psychiatrist (not mine, works near my work place) for a little while now and we're going on a date in a week. I know it sounds silly, but what if he just analyzes everything I do or say?

I don't have any mental problems, just a little situational depression here and there; I actually go to therapy and it's so beneficial to just talk to someone who's trained to do it. I'm not the most confident person and the last relationship I had was one where I was emotionally abused. Walking away from it was the best thing that I did for myself.

Ironically enough, I don't find myself going into my usual self-deprecating mode; he's not my usual type and he's not as attractive as the men I usually agree to go out with...but there's a chemistry that works between us. We have a ton of stuff in common and we have a similar type of humor.

He compliments me a lot, which I guess I'm either not used to or I'm just reading into it way too much. He's also really cheerful. I guess I should stop sweating it, but I just feel like I should keep my guard up, which isn't me--I usually wear my heart on my sleeve.

So...what's it like to date a psychiatrist? (Not my own)

I'm someone obsessed with psychology and a little insight for you...

It sounds like dating a psychiatrist can go either way with the good or bad. Because he is a psychologist, he specialized in the science of human minds and behaviors. He will know the right things to say to all types of people based on their life histories and experiences - a pro at mind games and ways to get what he wants. But then again, if he is genuine with his interest in you, he may be a benefit to you emotionally. Because he understands the human psyche, he will have the ability to bring you out of your esteem problem and give you alot of emotional support to grow as a person. But it is tricky. It really boils down to what type of person he is and what he will want from you... As far as his intentions behind his words and actions

Use your instincts if you pursue a relationship with him. Pay attention to your connection with him to see how natural it feels. That should give you an idea of his sincerity. Good luck
