Dating flight crew
You can’t let us stay put in one place for too long any more.All the travelling has made us used to moving around all the time.
We clean aircraft loos often so we are smart enough not to expose our private parts in those areas. Aside from that, we risk losing our jobs by joining the mile high club! Because we are trained to be calm even in emergencies, you might not notice that we are going through tough times. When we’re away from a sink, we wash our hands with bottled alcohol. Flight attendants appreciate even the littlest of things in life. We’re so tired of airplane food no matter how delectable they are.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.Sometimes, you just have to ask and prompt us to share what’s really going on in our heads. We have one of the world’s most dangerous jobs that we live one day at a time. To us, today is just a memory and tomorrow is but a dream. So once we hit the ground, we hunt for restaurants to sample new tastes and go on dining adventures. we can introduce to food you’ve never heard before.
Little types of appreciation like flowers, a special date, or even our favorite foods make all of the difference to flight attendants! We have tasted food served from around the globe and love finding it in our hometowns too!
But as usual this blog is not about Tennessee Williams himself, English literature, or my feeble attempt to indoctrinate a little bit of knowledge into your mind (sorry not sorry, that would be the teacher in me), it is about the question that I get asked all the time day-in and day-out; is it lonely being a flight attendant and is it hard to balance a relationship with your job?
