10 Reasons You Should Date A Pilot

10 Reasons You Should Date A Pilot

So what do you do?

This is a question asked within minutes of meeting somebody new. We can pretend that occupation doesn’t matter but let’s be honest…

“I’m a Pilot.”

Now hold on! What are your thoughts on this? Did you get a bit warmer? Did your heart skip a beat? In my opinion this is a fair response and I’m going to tell you why dating a pilot is the best thing ever.


They’ve got guts.

The pilot profession attracts a certain someone and that someone is probably not chicken to go where others hesitate. Are pilots afraid of heights? Maybe, but you’d never know because they’ll ascend 45,000 feet anyhow.

They’re like well-dressed fishermen…in the sky and without exaggerations about their big catch.

Navigating the sky, traveling the world…it adds a dash of color to dinner conversation. At some dating websites, such as MillionaireMatch, it’s obvious that those who lead interesting lives have interesting things to say. Whether your pilot is the life of the party or a bit more soft-spoken, they’re not dragging anyone down with dull dialogue.

They know how to do two (and more!) things all at the same time.

Adam Kovacevich, a CEO and pilot in Florida says that the cockpit is no stroll in the park. Every day pilots are essentially, “operating a multi-million dollar piece of machinery which nearly defies the laws of physics in order to get from point A to point B.”

Ah yes, the ability to multitask. We seek this in our mate throughout many avenues of life like the bedroom, the bedroom and especially the bedroom.


They know how to brave the storm.

We can pretty much all agree that flying is good. And the same can be said about relationships, yes? It’s all fine and dandy! However we’re grounded enough to know it can’t be clear skies and sunshine every waking moment. Pilots know the value of taking a deep breath and working out the best way to move forward. Keep calm and carry on, if you will.

They dress sharp and they know it.

We all know it.

This has been said before and I’ll say it again…a pilot’s uniform is hot. Every Halloween we’re bombarded with wannabe pilots over-sexing the sex symbol they’ve become. But let’s dive deeper. Along with fitting snug in the nice places, uniforms indicate a few things. Power. Responsibility. Skill. Something primitive stirs…is it the evolutionary jackpot?

They give great gifts.

You know that full, warm feeling resulting from giving an amazing gift to someone you care about? Pilots must love it! Famous for their gifts from all corners of the globe, their significant other (yeah you!) are in the prime position to receive something incredible.


They respect themselves.

As I seduce you with stories of pilots and generosity, let me give you some other good news: they’re not the typical type to lie down (too long) at your feet. This comes with the personality of your problem-solving, multitasking love interest. They respect themselves. As two whole, self respecting humans your relationship has a fine forecast of being balanced and strong.

They can read the signs.

Sometimes you want something but you don’t say it directly. Let’s ignore the psychology behind this and conclude that it’s okay to be coy! If your current beau is blind to your more subtle signals, think about how they are trained to notice the swiftest switch, the barely detectable nudge…pilots are in tune.

They take responsibility.

Sometimes described as Type A, pilots are responsible for the safety of hundreds at time. As such, they aren’t one to leave you out in the rain. No way! Don’t expect to get lost, go hungry or be kept waiting when a pilot is involved. So unpredictability does have its place in a relationship, but that should not be the defining characteristic! If you’ve got a messy history with the lesser-prepared professions, you better prepare to be amazed.

They can help get you there…and there…and there!

It’s similar to having a boyfriend (or girlfriend) with a car when you were 16. The vehicle comes to represent mobility, freedom and adventure. Getting older, the world gets bigger and so does the car. Some upgrade to a plane and they’ve got a license to fly! And most of their friends can fly too!


At this point (for your sake) I hope you’ve already got a pilot on lock, or you’re single and ready to brave the skies. Now, keep both eyes open. Your pilot may just appear out of thin air…

8 Powerful Reasons to Love Your Enemies

8 Powerful Reasons to Love Your Enemies

We’ve all got our enemies; people who take pleasure in causing us pain and misery. Sometimes, the development of an enemy is due to certain differences in your characters and events have led to that. Other times, some people end up hating you for apparently no reason at all.

Regardless of how you got this enemy, as opposed to the paradigm of fighting fire with fire, consider the following reasons and see why you should actually appreciate your enemies. This article will show you not only how to not be bothered by your enemies, but how to actually foster love for them.

Read on to learn the secret.

1. It’s a practical lesson in anger management

To be honest, your enemies are the best people to help you understand your sense of anger management. When it might be true that your enemies have a way of bringing out the worst in you as regards anger, it is also true that they can help you in your quest to have that anger managed. You can’t get truly angry at someone you love and it is only in that time when you get truly annoyed that you learn how to manage it.


Anger management is more effective when it is in practice and not in theory

Your enemies are like the therapists who you need, but actually don’t want. Inasmuch as you might want to hate them, they provide you an opportunity to control the anger impulse that you have.

2. It’s an opportunity for healthy competition

You might not know it, but your enemies make for great rivals as they help harness the competitor in you (sometimes, you might not even know or bee conversant with this competitive side until you come across an adversary). You get the right motivation to compete and this can go a long way to spur you to victory.

However, while doing so, it is also essential that you remember not to become a worse version of yourself while competing. Working against an adversary is tricky, and you need to ensure that you don’t cause harm to yourself or your morals in the process. Healthy competition is all you need to get out of this.


3. Their negative comments can help you make a breakthrough

It is true that your enemies never really have much good to say about you. However, in as much as they might be talking out of a place of hate, there might be some truth to what they’re saying.

To wit, whenever you hear something mean or nasty from an enemy, you might want to take a step back and evaluate yourself. There is a chance that what this enemy is saying is true and coming to face that fact is a major step in helping you to become a better person overall. This is another testament to the fact that enemies can be therapists in their own way.

4. Enemies can also be powerful allies

Loving your enemies can also mean making an effort to interact and make peace with them. In the end, if you are able to establish some common ground and patch things up, you’ll have succeeded in making another friend. And who doesn’t need friends?

This can also help you in working with people in the long run. You get to hone your inter-personal skills, and that can be a big plus to your ledger.


5. It gives you the ability to realize positivity

In a multitude of negativity, a speck of positivity always seems to find its way through.

Sometimes, a knowledge of the fact that you have enemies will also help you to focus on the many positives and good things that are in your life. A lot of times, we neglect what really matters in life. This can be due to being overly concerned with the enemies we have.

However, it is also possible for this acknowledgement to spur you to take a step back and appreciate the goo things (and people who surround you).

6. There might just be a misunderstanding

Sometimes, the reason why you have an enemy might be something very innocuous. You might not have known the cause of this fractured relationship and your enemy will help complete the picture.


Simply approaching them will help you to understand the reason for the fracture. This, in turn, can help you to work towards healing your relationship moving forward. Misunderstandings happen, and you need to be able to work around them.

7. You learn to appreciate love as well

A constant reminder of the fact that there are enemies will also help you not to take those who love you for granted. Love and hate are two opposing emotions and it is possible for one to momentarily overshadow the other.

However, while you’ll always have enemies, there will also always be people who love you. These people need to be appreciated for what they do for you. Never let the hate projected to you from your enemies take the place of that.

8. Do you really need the hate?

The truth is that enemies bring only toxic emotions and generate bad reactions from you. If you’re truly to live a prosperous life, you can’t really be carrying all this baggage around.

Hate is bad and you should try all you can to get rid of it. It is a well-known fact that nobody can get really far in life while carrying a lot of emotional baggage. Well, hate is the biggest form of emotional baggage there is.
