Dating flight attendants

I’m hurtling towards France on the Eurostar train out of London.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.

Many couples in a good place haven’t taken the time to travel together, and that’s a shame; it’s necessary to discover quirks about yourselves, and to see how well you can stand your partner when you can’t escape.

Stopovers give you a full day or two with nothing but time together: meals, downtime, dating time, exercise, leisure activities. The fact remains that time isn’t really the deciding factor when it comes for men or women to date flight attendants, it’s money.

Stopovers are a test on both of you, as it requires planning; she may be exhausted or sick and not want to do anything but sleep when you first arrive (fortunately, my girlfriend is so full of energy 24/7 it’s quite remarkable).

You have to make the effort to get a bus or plane to see her in a different city and forego work if her arrival is on a weekday.

I’m not pretending I have all the answers, or I’m completely satisfied with so little time together; for now, it works, and I’m happy. Other than the fact she and I constantly travel due to the nature of our work, the fact she is a flight attendant is kind of irrelevant to the relationship.

Sure, she shares horror and success stories from work, but she would do the same if she were an accountant. If you're looking for some insider tips on the places to go and the people to meet, check out my consulting services.

The loudspeaker comes to life, announcing our impending arrival at Gare du Nord.

No time for nostalgia when we pull in, just a quick visit to currency exchange to get the coins I need for the metro and I’m off again.

I should point out that these paid stopovers are much less common for FAs with domestic routes.
