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!

5 Smart Reasons to Start Journal Writing Today

5 Smart Reasons to Start Journal Writing Today

Here’s the truth: your effectiveness at life is not what it could be. You’re missing out.

Each day passes by and you have nothing to prove that it even happened. Did you achieve something? Go on a date? Have an emotional breakthrough? Who knows?

But what you do know is that you don’t want to make the same mistakes that you’ve made in the past.

Our lives are full of hidden gems of knowledge and insight, and the most recent events in our lives contain the most useful gems of all. Do you know why? It’s simple, those hidden lessons are the most up to date, meaning they have the largest impact on what we’re doing right now.

But the question is, how do you get those lessons? There’s a simple way to do it, and it doesn’t involve time machines:

Journal writing.

Improved mental clarity, the ability to see our lives in the big picture, as well as serving as a piece of evidence cataloguing every success we’ve ever had; we are provided all of the above and more by doing some journal writing.

Journal writing is a useful and flexible tool to help shed light on achieving your goals.

Here’s 5 smart reasons why you should do journal writing:

1. Journals Help You Have a Better Connection with Your Values, Emotions, and Goals

By journaling about what you believe in, why you believe it, how you feel, and what your goals are, you understand your relationships with these things better. This is because you must sort through the mental clutter and provide details on why you do what you do and feel what you feel.

Consider this:

Perhaps you’ve spent the last year or so working at a job you don’t like. It would be easy to just suck it up and keep working with your head down, going on as if it’s supposed to be normal to not like your job. Nobody else is complaining, so why should you, right?

But a little journal writing will set things straight for you. You don’t like your job. You feel like it’s robbing you of happiness and satisfaction, and you don’t see yourself better there in the future.

The other workers? Maybe they don’t know, maybe they don’t care. But you do, you know and care enough to do something about it. And you’re capable of fixing this problem because your journal writing allows you to finally be honest with yourself about it.

2. Journals Improve Mental Clarity and Help Improve Your Focus

If there’s one thing journal writing is good for, it’s clearing the mental clutter.

How does it work? Simply, whenever you have a problem and write about it in a journal, you transfer the problem from your head to the paper. This empties the mind, allowing allocation of precious resources to problem-solving rather than problem-storing.

Let’s say you’ve been juggling several tasks at work. You’ve got data entry, testing, e-mails, problems with the boss, and so on—enough to overwhelm you—but as you start journal writing, things become clearer and easier to understand: Data entry can actually wait till Thursday; Bill kindly offered earlier to do my testing; For e-mails, I can check them now; the boss is just upset because Becky called in sick, etc.

You become better able to focus and reason your tasks out, and this is an indispensable and useful skill to have.

3. Journals Improve Insight and Understanding

As a positive consequence of improving your mental clarity, you become more open to insights you may have missed before. As you write your notes out, you’re essentially having a dialogue with yourself. This draws out insights that you would have missed otherwise; it’s almost as if two people are working together to better understand each other. This kind of insight is only available to the person who has taken the time to connect with and understand themselves in the form of writing.

Once you’ve gotten a few entries written down, new insights can be gleaned from reading over them. What themes do you see in your life? Do you keep switching goals halfway through? Are you constantly dating the same type of people who aren’t good for you? Have you slowly but surely pushed people out of your life for fear of being hurt?

All of these questions can be answered by simply self-reflecting, but you can only discover the answers if you’ve captured them in writing. These questions are going to be tough to answer without a journal of your actions and experiences.

4. Journals Track Your Overall Development

Life happens, and it can happen fast. Sometimes we don’t take the time to stop and look around at what’s happening to us at each moment. We don’t get to see the step-by-step progress that we’re making in our own lives. So what happens? One day it’s the future, and you have no idea how you’ve gotten there.

Journal writing allows you to see how you’ve changed over time, so you can see where you did things right, and you can see where you took a misstep and fell.

The great thing about journals is that you’ll know what that misstep was, and you can make sure it doesn’t happen again—all because you made sure to log it, allowing yourself to learn from your mistakes.

5. Journals Facilitate Personal Growth

The best thing about journal writing is that no matter what you end up writing about, it’s hard to not grow from it. You can’t just look at a past entry in which you acted shamefully and say “that was dumb, anyway!” No, we say “I will never make a dumb choice like that again!”

It’s impossible not to grow when it comes to journal writing. That’s what makes journal writing such a powerful tool, whether it’s about achieving goals, becoming a better person, or just general personal-development. No matter what you use it for, you’ll eventually see yourself growing as a person.

Kickstart Journaling

How can journaling best be of use to you? To vent your emotions? To help achieve your goals? To help clear your mind? What do you think makes journaling such a useful life skill?

Know the answer? Then it’s about time you reap the benefits of journal writing and start putting pen to paper.

Here’s what you can do to start journaling:
