A while ago, I was working with a doctor who was supposedly particularly handsome. He was the sort of guy who was good looking enough that everyone would comment on him, and all the patients universally nicknamed him Dr. Cutie, or something equally inane and objectifying.
So here's the weird thing about Dr. Cutie. He didn't flirt. Not with me, not with nurses, not with anyone. I know what you're thinking: "how is that possible?" Considering a large number of male doctors flirt with nurses, and an even larger number of cute male doctors flirt with nurses, this was extremely unusual behavior.
After Dr. Cutie moved on to greener pastures, I had a discussion with a female colleague about him. Her main commentary on Dr. Cutie was, "He's a total asshole."
"Really?" I said. "What did he do that made him an asshole?"
Interestingly, she couldn't name one thing.
"Do you think it's possible," I said, "that Dr. Cutie is a nice, shy, introverted guy who happens to be very good looking, and is therefore perceived as being kind of an asshole because he's aloof?"
"It's possible," she admitted.
So I guess being a really good looking male doctor isn't necessarily always fabulous. Although I suspect mostly it is.
