9 Things To Know Before You Date A Flight Attendant

9 Things To Know Before You Date A Flight Attendant

Are you dating a flight attendant, or about to? Congratulations if you are! You are fearless, bold, and living life as we ought to. Why do I say this? Flight attendants are a rare breed. Because of the nature of our job, we are trained to deal with many extreme situations normal people don’t get to experience. Due to this, we develop attractive personalities that make us extra-interesting dates. When you date, and maybe even fall in love with a flight attendant, you will find yourself experiencing all of the great but also all of the tough parts of dating a flight attendant.

1. We are sleep deprived.

With long working hours and little time to rest, one activity you can indulge in while dating is to relax in a spa. There, we can catch some extra Zzzz’s. We’ll love you double if you are aware of this. After a restful massage and a long nap, we can be more attentive to you and our conversations. Who knows — after a nap the next conversation has the potential to lead to a blooming relationship.

2. You’ll be hard pressed to look for a flight attendant, male or female, who is a mile high club member.

We clean aircraft loos often so we are smart enough not to expose our private parts in those areas. This area of the airplane is never sexy to us. Aside from that, we risk losing our jobs by joining the mile high club! It’s not worth the risk to most of us.

3. We look calm even if we are actually stressed.

Be extra sensitive when dating a flight attendant. We might look calm even if we’re going through stressful times. Because we are trained to be calm even in emergencies, you might not notice that we are going through tough times. Sometimes, you just have to ask and prompt us to share what’s really going on in our heads.

4. We are hygiene freaks.

When flying, hygiene is king. We wash our hands all the time. When we’re away from a sink, we wash our hands with bottled alcohol. We freak out when disinfectants run out.

5. You can easily please us.

Flight attendants appreciate even the littlest of things in life. We have one of the world’s most dangerous jobs that we live one day at a time. And this is done in an extreme manner. To us, today is just a memory and tomorrow is but a dream. Little types of appreciation like flowers, a special date, or even our favorite foods make all of the difference to flight attendants!

6. We breathe caring for people.

We have genuine concern for passengers. We are trained to have compassion for passengers. To us, these leads into our personal lives. Dates are opportunities to show we care.

7. We are conversation experts

Conversing has become natural to us. We have seen the world, been exposed to diverse cultures, and we deal with hundreds of personalities all the time. If you love sparkling conversations we can chat you up about anything under the sun. So when you go out with us you can relax. You can count on us to carry on tête-à-tête even till the morning hours.

8.  We love gastronomic adventures

We’re so tired of airplane food no matter how delectable they are. So once we hit the ground, we hunt for restaurants to sample new tastes and go on dining adventures. We love to please our palates. we can introduce to food you’ve never heard before. We have tasted food served from around the globe and love finding it in our hometowns too!

9. Flight attendants are restless

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. You can plan to have a date that involves moving around a lot. That way, you won’t bore us.

Flight attendants are good dates even once you’ve learned all of the positives and negatives. You’ll never get bored dating a flight attendant because we are caring, good at talking to all types of people, and are appreciative of even the smallest gestures!

What Will Happen When You Surround Yourself With Positive People?

What Will Happen When You Surround Yourself With Positive People?

Ever since Norman Vincent Peale wrote his classic book The Power of Positive Thinking, many people have worked hard to harness the power of positivity. But one of the greatest challenges to maintaining positivity is that we live in a world focused on negativity. The news, social media, the office gossip, and pretty much everywhere else is filled with terrible events and complaining people.

The truth is you can’t have a life of positivity while spending a lot of time with people who drag you down. The good news is that there is a simple solution! Surround yourself with positive people. When I started this habit I had some nearly immediate results…and some that will pay off further down the road. Here are 8 amazing things that will happen when you surround yourself with positive people.

1. Your Attitude Will Change

I love spending time with my positive friends! I get energized and excited. My attitude becomes one of confidence and peace. You will enjoy the same results.

Time with negative people will affect your attitude negatively, but time with positive people will allow you to move through circumstances with a smile on your face.

2. You Will Accomplish More

I mentor a group of runners. I do my best to exude positivity whenever we are together. Do you know that those wonderful people will run longer and faster because they are being encouraged? They accomplish more than they thought possible because they are taught to believe they can. So will you!

Having people who tell you that you can do more will make it so you actually will do more!

3. You Will Make More Friends

Think about your current group of friends. Out of all of them, which one has the most friends in their life? I’ll bet you’ll discover that your positive friends have way more friends than the negative people.

Most of us love spending time with the person who is the life of the party…who is (not coincidentally) highly positive. Want more friends? Hang around positive people!

4. You Will Make More Money

Here is a practical effect of spending time with positive people. It’ll make you more money!

As noted above, being with positive people makes you more positive. According to the Wall Street Journal, positive people make more money than average, but they make a LOT more than negative people.[1] The difference? 40%! That’s right, happy, positive people make around 40% more than negative people. Be positive to make more money.

5. You Will Be Consistently Happy

I want to note here that happiness is truly an internal attitude. This internal attitude is very manageable.

Most of us go through life letting circumstances dictate our happiness. We live on autopilot, and our autopilot is usually negative. However, frequent exposure to positivity will move your default state toward the side of happiness.

If you make a conscious change to keep positive people nearby as much as possible then you will be consistently happier.

6. You Will Become a Magnet for Success

You may have seen this before, but it’s so very true:

“You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” – Jim Rohn

When you spend time with positive people, you become more positive. The result is people will want to spend more time with you. This becomes a snowball in your success.

When people see how excited and enthusiastic you are about your business or work they will want to be a part of your vision. Your positivity will attract success like a magnet!

7. You Will Become More Generous

Examples from my positive friends inspire me to be more generous. So many of them have helped me that I want to give back. I love helping people with running, writing, speaking, improving their jobs, and becoming entrepreneurs. I love writing articles like this one. I write tens of thousands of words to help others because it’s just so much fun!

When you are positive, helping people just becomes part of your nature. You will want to give and share, it won’t be an option, you’ll have a burning need to be generous.

8. You Will Live Longer

This is a big one. Your positive friends will rub off on you and help you live longer. According to Dr. David R. Hamilton, studies have shown that positive people live seven or more years longer than negative people![2]

Positive people have fewer chronic health problems and are better at fighting off diseases. If you remember nothing else from this article, remember this: positivity affects how long you live.

Final Thoughts

Don’t just dump all of your negative friends, family and co-workers. That may be neither practical nor kind. But do make a conscious effort to limit time with them while increasing time with people who have a positive outlook. How much you help others, your success and even the length of your life are at stake.
