How can you tell if a man likes you when all the signs are there but he may be held back by professional ethics because he is a doctor?
If you are this doctor's patient by the "Medical Code of Ethics" he could lose his license if he dates a patient. If you aren't his patient then there is no reason he can't ask you out on a date. If you aren't his patient and you strongly feel he's interested in you ask him out for drinks.
This is more of an add-on question than an answer. Could someone expand on the above answer? Why would the doctor have to lose his medical license, if the patient is being treated for something non threatening. Would it be OK if the patient is OK with the relationship? Is there anyway to move such a relationship in a way that would be OK to date or have a personal relationship. There has to be some way for it to be OK, in situations where the patient is not vulnerable. Ideas or thought?
you should get another doctor if you think you could have something with your current doctor. When the doctors actually become doctors they have to swear by the code of ethics, it keeps the creepy doctors from asking out everyone and keeps things professional, like most people like it to be with doctors.
