Dating flight crew
Right in my neighborhood when I’m always running away, is essentially zero to impossible. My colleague tells me that I would be so difficult to date. I believe high maintenance must have many definitions, because I’ve never considered myself a high maintenance woman, but I was told that my water dependency, Veganism, and travel fetish, make me much less desirable.
Ironically, when I do enjoy Southern California sunshine, I gravitate to foreigners. Well, I can’t see myself giving up any of those three anytime soon, if ever. I am viewed as the girl that no one can keep up with, that I am sabotaging myself, and what man wants to attempt to date someone who resides in the same zip code only on occasion?
The more time that I live “The Flight Attendant Life”, I realize that, in the pauses between this cute boy and that, I feel my heart’s slight tug, internally saying, “Kara, I don’t know how many more meet and greets I can take.” Because flight attendants have the reputation of having boyfriends (I just realized that is almost a gender neutral statement…get it? I know how to flirt, and bat my eyes, and giggle, and love the challenge of , but…
haha) in every city, and travel encounters tend to only lend themselves to superficial, lustful relationships, I constantly feel that I am not taken seriously, not being appreciated for my depth and sincerity. But, I am intensely loyal, and each person that I have met, has now, a space in my memory bank. But it’s all fleeting, and a cycle, one that repeats, and repeats, and repeats.
I have created a lifestyle, a blog, and been gifted a small sense of direction, while simultaneously scoring a couple of hot dates out of the navy pencil skirt, white collared shirt, and manicured nails.Makes me slightly less available to telephone contact. Maybe you have been wondering if flight attendants are dateable, and what does the relationship world of a flight attendant look like? But I can tell you, quantity of people met, doesn’t equal quality.But, in my defense, I’ve been in LA for the past 14 days. The flight attendant life, in some regards, is also lonely. I think that’s how the dating culture is in general.This is how the beginning of a conversation started between a friend and colleague of mine.Surprisingly, in this particular case, ultra-sensitive me wasn’t offended. This advice shared wasn’t about me needing to be more friendly with passengers, or a reminder to pick-up trash during flight, or “would you please help with closing overhead bins during and after boarding? Ask someone else, and you will probably receive completely different feedback.
