Dating a psychologist
If, however, the women receptively respond to negging, the dudes know that she's easy to manipulate and exactly the kind of girl he's after.As someone who has spent the last decade (at least) studying and doing research in Psychology, this is so frustrating.Want to meet a soul mate who has the same profession as you?Or are you looking for a valiant partner with whom you can forget about any danger?Not only have I come across these assholes (even in grad school), but random strangers often seem super put off when I mention my work.I've even considered lying about my degrees to avoid this kind of shit, but I'm not particularly good at lying and it doesn't seem like a sustainable strategy for making friends, haha.If he is in private practice, he may be a really good practitioner.
The main difference for me was that they had excellent communication and conflict resolution skills when compared to most people. He knew everything about everything and totally used our dates to try to "analyze" me. He thought he was SO smart, and didn't bother to actually listen. Me: a little complicated; sometimes I feel really close to her, and sometimes it feels like we live on different planets. Is that a disconnect that was triggered in your teens? It's probably really effective for their dating strategy.

I am now dating a psychologist who I really hit it off with. He hasn’t shared as much about his family with me except to say that his mother left him when he was very young and his father disregarded every accomplishment he made. I adore him and our relationship is terrific but I fear I am not asking him enough questions. They are human beings who experience and suffer from all of the human foibles and life problems that afflict us all. Well, for one, I want to remind you that his "knowledge base" is intellectual in nature and does not have much to do with him as a human being.
I have a psych degree and many friends in the field, and I was married to an academic psychologist.
I can state with confidence that anyone with any psych training is not interested in "analyzing" your every move or "understanding" your deep desires more than anyone else you know.
