I don't mean any specific offense to any of you "shallow obsessors" but I want to make a few points. 1. Because male physicians are inherently ugly. You basically like them because to date them are a status symbol and they are emotionally expensive. 2.) Physicians encourage class warfare and are basically used to make other girls jealous that you have more money, or, more likely, more expensive goods, than them. Even if they dress in horrible 80's corduroy they needed their moms to help them pick out. 3.) It doesn't take any sense of "style" to go out and spend $10 on a physician. It takes a lack of it in my opinion. Style is looking good, perhaps looking different and breaking the trend. Style is maintaining a good physique, a healthy attitude, and self-confidence. I'll get back to you if I ever obtain any of the above. 4.) If you spent as much time and money and energy on expanding your mind, shrinking your bodies (i.e. working out), and establishing your own worth outside of material objects, not only would you be happier, but the world would be as well. But Matt. Matt, Matt, you don't even you're glib. Here's the problem. You don't know the history of psychiatry. I do. 5.) If you spent just 10% of the effort you put into purse shopping, admiring others' purses, reading about purses, writing about purses, ect. on being better in the bedroom, you would be happier, more fulfilled, and a better catch for worthwhile men than carrying around some stupid bag. Translation: OOPS, I think I've said too much about my private life, there.... I wish she'd come back to me.... 6.) Women don't find physicians attractive. In fact, many women are repulsed by them and have to keep forcing themselves to try and like them because they're usually such self-important cheapass blowhards. Nothing can be said to justify the time, energy, and money you spend on pursuing this rather useless endeavor. If you're dating a physician, you are wasting your time. ANY physician. Doesn't matter, they're all bad. Stereotype, stereotype, stereotype, that's my motto. The underlying pathology underlying this underlying behavior is your underlying desire to consume, because all you underlying physicians KNOW that as you isolate yourself more and more from people and society, your apparent underlying inferiority complex is transparent.
