If you are trying to date a flight attendant or are beginning to date one, then here are some useful facts to remember.
It’s of utmost importance that you learn these by heart so you’ll have a beautiful relationship together.
What You Need To Know When Dating A Flight Attendant
1 She Lives in Her Own Time Zone
Your clock might be showing 3 am GMT but it is quite possible that your girlfriend is still living in EST time zone and the sun hasn’t set in for her yet. They don’t go by the traditional time tracking mechanisms like a watch. Their time zone is pretty much decided by their bodies’ internal clock. But, hey, once they are up and about their energy can tire anyone else around.
2 Romantic Dates Will Happen Over Skype
Birthdays, anniversaries, valentine’s day, New Year’s eve or a usual weekend? It is quite possible that you’ll have to celebrate these occasions over Skype. It just gives you a chance to show your creativity and plan that amazing Skype date. You both can order same take-out food, get a glass of wine, sync movie watch or play an online game together.
3 You Can Travel with Her Anywhere, Anytime!
You’ll get to travel with her anywhere anytime but only as long as it’s for a maximum 72 hours, which also includes the 24-hour journey to the other end of the world. But how many people can boast of a weekend date on the Gold Coast of Ghana!
4 She Has a Lot in Common with Your Cat
Starting with waking up at 3 am and sleeping until 6 pm. Hey, she probably hasn’t slept for the last 48 hours and has flown from Sao Paulo to Vienna to Hanoi and back.
Warning! Whatever you do, do not wake her up. (Even if you just want to wake her up to tell her how much you love her.)
5 She’ll Want Food and Cuddles at 4 am
It’s also quite possible that she would wake up at 4 am to ask for food and cuddles. Remember, she hasn’t seen you in 3 days and is just back from a 16 hours flight. She deserves that! So, work on your skills to make that midnight pasta or omelette.
6 She’ll Have Discounts in Tons of Places
Planning to go out for a romantic dinner, have a nice stay-cation over the weekend or go for a relaxing spa on her rest day. Chances are you will pay half the price of what others would have to pay. Don’t believe me? Try this app World of Crew and see the number of discounts which are available for them!
7 She Does NOT Do the Safety Demo Outside a Plane
Believe me, you will not find her showing you the way to emergency exits or how to use oxygen masks in her apartment. And, if you want to be in her good books don’t mention it or ask her that question.
8 She Can Get You Anything from Anywhere
Wine from France, Olive oil from Spain, Caviar from Russia. She can get you anything from anywhere in the world. So, get ready to enjoy some exclusive delicacies from around the world.
9 102% of Her Friends are Crew
Most of the time she would be living far from home. Her lifestyle does not give her much time to go out and find new friends elsewhere. Chances are that her home and her family would be other crew members.
And, here is a bonus for you all!
10 Learn to Talk Crew
Layovers, Rosters, Purser, galley, Minimum Rest, Carts, Latch, Atlas Box, Crop-dusting and other terms and expressions will become your daily bread. You will eat, drink and breathe them as much as she does, so start learning the crew language from now on.
