Doctors are Nigerians In America’s (NIA) most eligible and sought after species. All the girls want to marry them; all the guys want to be them. Also most NIA men want to marry doctors and possibly only just settled for a nurse because they couldn’t get their “clammy” hands on a doctor…
I must admit that even, in my single days, I would daydream of being swept off my feet by a “dark, handsome, tall, igbo & (yes!) doctor”. Most single girls have this daydream as well; mind you, these are women that don’t need to marry for money, but ask them what their ideal dream man’s profession should be, and 80% of them would chime “a medical doctor abeg!”… The ultimate choice or is it?!
Leading me to conclude that doctors have realized this and it has gone to their heads at least a little (if not a lot)!
During my “single & searching” days, I met quite a few; many were arrogant and cocky; acting like the “deal” was sealed just because of their profession; on several occasions when the “hook-up” was being arranged, all I’d hear from the “arranger” was “…he’s a doctor o!” even before I hear his name… At first it was cool, but after a while I’m like “what the @#%$?”
Let’s analyze this very critically; back in the day during our university days in Naija, what were the characteristics of the majority of students in medical school? Weren’t they usually the nerdy, thick layered bifocal glasses wearing type guys, who couldn’t even “toast” a girl without fumbling? They were rarely involved in school socials; neither did they usually join the campus exclusive clubs. They were incessantly “nailed” by the cutest girls in school that is if they had the guts to even talk to them! Haba! “talk to girls ke?!!? Have they finished reading their anatomy, physiology and biochemistry textbooks, “swathing & jacking” for their “2nd MB” to even give “partying” a thought?” Mind you though, some pulled off being both into the social scene & their books; but most did not.
Come to think of it; I had one of the latter “stalking” me seriously for 3years back in school, I mean “I look left, I look right” bobo no gree tire!!” na wetin naw?!?” My friends (with my consent ofcos! Very foolish me!) even resorted to warning him to “…take time or else!!”; fast forward to 10years later; the guy having finished from an Ivy league school here in America works with a prestigious hospital somewhere in New England; ofcos his thick glasses has been replaced with contacts; now the bobo looks like he has some serious potential, ofcos after some major wardrobe overhaul!
The referenced above is one of the “off chance” ones! Most of them still look as nerdy as light is day but they are still “pulling” babes left right & center? Just mention he’s a doctor and girls will go all buttery; even though most can’t even carry on an interesting conversation, without reference to their wonderful profession; and are as boring as hell, but that doesn’t stop babes from still loving & wanting them!
The deal for most of these doctors is that after grueling years of exams, and even more qualifying exams that guarantee a very fat paycheck and lots of prestige (for them and ofcos their accompanying spouses), their NPV (net present value) has skyrocketed through the roof here in America. For some women, even resorting to the drastic measure of investing in one of them, imported “a la carte” from Naija, can guarantee the finer things of life (all things being equal of cos)…
Most girls want a piece of them; making them an extremely rare & converted “procession”. Women (yes men as well) will give an arm and a leg to be with a doctor!
This bring to mind the case of a girl I know, who married a dentist here in America a few years ago; they both went to the same university back in Nigeria but didn’t move in the same social circles and hence never even crossed paths!
This girl was your quintessential popular girl back in school; hanging with the most popular guys only; a guy had to at least own a car in school then to even get an audience with her; her husband (now) wouldn’t have stood a chance even if “he thought of dreaming in his dreams that he could chase her”, infact I’m almost sure he couldn’t even bring himself to safely admire her from a distance; never thinking that his luck would shine so much as to date her, talkless of marrying her.
Thank-God for the state of “husbandlessness” that plague many-a-fine single and one time popular girls, these days in “ground leveling” America; they are now husband and wife.
The guy is still as nerdy as light is day (America didn’t even help matters in his case) but the fact that he’s a dentist I’m sure helped get him some “air time” with this girl! They are happily married today; but sometimes I wonder if this marriage would have ever happened?
As a woman, if you have a husband who’s a medical doctor your parties become very popular and you notice more single girls falling over themselves to be your new BFF (best friend forever) hopefully hoping for a hook-up along the line!
This brings me to conclude doctors can be deemed the rarest of the rarest of rare of NIA single species; and as with these things, there are a lot of fakes & as well as real but seriously confused & callous ones out there, that can potentially do some serious emotional damage…So people beware!
All that glitters is not gold…
One more thing; doctors out there looking to meet single women (as if that’s even possible, but let me try anyhow), please hit me up. I’ve got some really nice, single & beautiful girls looking to meet you all; sadly my own partner isn’t much of a social butterfly and I’m tired of explaining to these women that he has only one available doctor friend, who having been so traumatized by the ordeal of being chased and harangued by beautiful women bent on achieving their ambition of marrying a doctor (poor guy isn’t used to the experience of being wanted like this), has practically sworn off women till the year 2012 or thereabout!
Most importantly you all will help me keep my new BFFs because, I’ve grown to love & appreciate them all and worry they’d start abandoning me soon!
