Dating a phd student
If you get married, you and your spouse may not do everything with each other, so it is important to get accustomed to being together while enjoying separate interests.
#8220; Be prepared for a breakup about three weeks from now.” That was the relationship advice I got from a girl in her second year of my boyfriend’s graduate program, just before he started the first semester of his MFA in creative writing.
She had reason to be cynical: grad school means a convoluted class schedule, loads of coursework, very little money, and a whole new social circle of other grad students–and none of those things are awesome for an existing relationship.
During her first semester, there had been a rash of breakups as everyone adjusted to the demands of the program.
Graduate students, especially those with doctorate degrees, often find financial security in their fields of study.
More money means being able to pay bills more easily and being able to experience more things together like vacations and romantic dinners out.
Encourage your grad student to let you know when she is available.
