Benefits of dating a flight attendant
Having a partner, both romantically and on the same journey, seemed like a far off fantasy. Nor do I claim to be an absolute authority on everyone who has ever dated an FA.These are my experiences and feelings on the subject. Privacy is Easier If you’re in an expensive city like New York or San Francisco and making under ,000/year, you probably have a roommate or shared space.Although I usually make an effort to look business casual when I travel, this time I’ve gone all out: freshly shaven, perfectly pressed tailored shirt, cologne applied liberally.Even my shoes are neat and polished to a fine onyx black.Unfortunately, her airline only allows immediate family to fly free.This is hardly a deal breaker, though; it’s not like I chose to date her just because she was a flight attendant…in fact, we met in San Francisco when she was on vacation. Stopovers are a Good Test of a Relationship Some people start dating slowly, and maybe progress to spending three, four, five nights a week together before taking the next step.
The loudspeaker comes to life, announcing our impending arrival at Gare du Nord.Jumping from city to city, country to country, has always been a part of my life as a vagabond, and I often romanticized about finding someone with whom I could share these experiences.Hell, I did more than imagine it: there were years when I was certain I would never be satisfied as a solo traveler. Disclaimer: I will not mention which carrier she works for, her name, her home base, or all of her international stopovers to maintain anonymity.I know many people can make this work while dating someone, but sharing a wall with someone you may not want to overhear you while your significant other is spending the night is a bit of a mood killer.From my experience, when my girlfriend flies into the US, Canada, or Europe, she often gets 1-2 nights in a decent hotel covered by the airline.
