An NHS front-liner shares what it’s like being the “hot doctor” from work, but remains that he is definitely off the market right now.
28-year-old Dr Emeka Okorocha from London, who works in the A&E department and Covid-19 wards, had appeared on TV news numerous times.
The doctor is also a real prince and is third in line to the throne in his province in Nigeria.
“Currently, I’m married to my career and there is no lucky lady in my life at the moment,” he shared.
“I think with everything going on with the pandemic, including the lockdown, it’s hard to see people I know, let alone go dating.”
“But who knows what the future holds,” he added. “I don’t have a type, I just want someone whom I have a great time with, even if it’s another doctor. Nothing beats being around someone who you have amazing chemistry with.”
Despite getting multiple romantic offers from women, he confessed that he is currently “married to his career,” and admitted he hates it when dates become obsessed with talking about his job.
He added that being a doctor also often works against him on dating apps.
“I’ve realised that it’s great to be transparent and say who you are and what you do – however, sometimes it works against you. People often have their own preconceptions of what being a doctor entails,” he shared.
“I love what I do and I’m proud to do it, but I’d rather it didn’t dominate every conversation.I love to listen and learn so I’m often far more interested in other people talking about themselves.”
“Dating now is pretty much non-existent so the apps can be great at times because you can’t go out to meet people, and even before the pandemic, they could be helpful as being a doctor is pretty demanding on your time and social life,” he added.
