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…

7 Powerful Questions To Find Out What You Want To Do With Your Life

7 Powerful Questions To Find Out What You Want To Do With Your Life

What do I want to do with my life? It’s a question all of us think about at one point or another.

For some, the answer comes easily. For others, it takes a lifetime to figure out.

It’s easy to just go through the motions and continue to do what’s comfortable and familiar. But for those of you who seek fulfillment, who want to do more, these questions will help you paint a clearer picture of what you want to do with your life.

1. What are the things I’m most passionate about?

The first step to living a more fulfilling life is to think about the things that you’re passionate about.

What do you love? What fulfills you? What “work” do you do that doesn’t feel like work? Maybe you enjoy writing, maybe you love working with animals or maybe you have a knack for photography.

The point is, figure out what you love doing, then do more of it.


2. What are my greatest accomplishments in life so far?

Think about your past experiences and the things in your life you’re most proud of.

How did those accomplishments make you feel? Pretty darn good, right? So why not try and emulate those experiences and feelings?

If you ran a marathon once and loved the feeling you had afterwards, start training for another one. If your child grew up to be a star athlete or musician because of your teachings, then be a coach or mentor for other kids.

Continue to do the things that have been most fulfilling for you.

3. If my life had absolutely no limits, what would I choose to have and what would I choose to do?

Here’s a cool exercise: Think about what you would do if you had no limits.

If you had all the money and time in the world, where would you go? What would you do? Who would you spend time with?


These answers can help you figure out what you want to do with your life. It doesn’t mean you need millions of dollars to be happy though.

What it does mean is answering these questions will help you set goals to reach certain milestones and create a path toward happiness and fulfillment. Which leads to our next question …

4. What are my goals in life?

Goals are a necessary component to set you up for a happy future. So answer these questions:

Once you figure out the answers to each of these, you’ll have a much better idea of what you should do with your life.

5. Whom do I admire most in the world?

Following the path of successful people can set you up for success.

Think about the people you respect and admire most. What are their best qualities? Why do you respect them? What can you learn from them?


You’re the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with.[1] So don’t waste your time with people who hold you back from achieving your dreams.

Spend more time with happy, successful, optimistic people and you’ll become one of them.

6. What do I not like to do?

An important part of figuring out what you want to do with your life is honestly assessing what you don’t want to do.

What are the things you despise? What bugs you the most about your current job?

Maybe you hate meetings even though you sit through 6 hours of them every day. If that’s the case, find a job where you can work more independently.

The point is, if you want something to change in your life, you need to take action. Which leads to our final question …


7. How hard am I willing to work to get what I want?

Great accomplishments never come easy. If you want to do great things with your life, you’re going to have to make a great effort. That will probably mean putting in more hours the average person, getting outside your comfort zone and learning as much as you can to achieve as much as you can.

But here’s the cool part: it’s often the journey that is the most fulfilling part. It’s during these seemingly small, insignificant moments that you’ll often find that “aha” moments that helps you answer the question,

“What do I want to do with my life?”

So take the first step toward improving your life. You won’t regret it.
