We’ve all heard the jokes over the years. We’ve all seen the memes online. Those who work in aviation know how hard it is to date as a working man or woman! All those flights, all those hours away; it sure does put a strain on your personal relationships that’s for sure.
Despite all the bad things you may have heard about dating a flight attendant, there are plenty of good things too.
Just take a look:
8 Reasons to Date a Flight Attendant
1 – They love coming back home!
If you’re the patient boyfriend or girlfriend of a flight attendant, you can bet your last dollar they’re going to be really pleased to see you when you get home.
Think of it a little like an excited puppy – they’ll wag their tale and get all excited because they’ve not seen you for a few days, or maybe even longer.
At least you can’t say you’re not appreciated!
2 – They’ll always have a low-cost deal!
If you date a flight attendant, you get all the benefits of dating a flight attendant and one of those perks is that you’ll get to enjoy low-cost travel too!
If you fancy a weekend away last-minute, your flight attendant can help you with that. If you fancy jetting to go and see the F1 Grand Prix in some exotic country, your flight attendant can help with that too. If you want to travel, or get somewhere fast, your flight attendant partner is right there to help.
3 – You’ll know they’re definitely into YOU!
That’s right. Flight attendants are in demand – if they’re with you, they’re with you because they want to be, not because there’s nothing else on offer.
They have plenty of things to fill their time – travel, seeing new things, meeting new people. If you’re blessed to date a flight attendant, you can be sure you’re around for the right reasons.
4 – You get to live the life you want to lead.
Flight attendants are away a lot. Everyone knows that. For some, that can be too difficult but for others, that arrangement works out just fine. You can do what you want, when you want to do it. As long as you’re available when they get home for the weekend (or whatever time they’ve managed to squeeze free), they’re too busy leading their own life to get obnoxious and jealous about what you’re up to.
Technically, it could be the perfect relationship!
5 – They know what they’re doing in an emergency.
You know your flight attendant will be cool, calm and collected when you need them to be the most. They know what to do in the case of a fire, or anything else for that matter, so if the worst were to ever happen at least you can count on them to keep you calm and see you through!
6 – You know a flight attendant will be down for an adventure!
Above anything else, a flight attendant loves to see the world and to see new things and travel new places. You’re always going to have a good time around yours, and they’ll always be up for something exciting to do.
7 – Your flight attendant will always be on time.
Nothing ruins a first date quite like lateness so you can be happy in the knowledge that your flight attendant runs a very tight ship and lateness won’t be tolerated. You won’t be left waiting for hours on end while they get dress, fix their hair or apply their makeup. These people know how to get ready in a hurry and they are very well trained at it…
8 – Flight attendants have great people skills.
That means you can always count on them to be polite and courteous even in the worst of situations. Taking them home to meet your obnoxious mother or difficult father? Don’t worry, your flight attendant will be able to handle it. They’re used to dealing with difficult customers on a regular basis.
So there you have them – eight seasons you really should be dating a flight attendant. If you can think of any more brilliant reasons, feel free to let us know on Twitter or Facebook!
