Dating an airline pilot sex dating in east millinocket maine
That's on the high side for the m-f job and not subtracting out vacations or holidays off. I have yet to hear of an airline that has "flex" time, or whatever you wish to call it. For example, I started dating a mechanic at the commuter I worked for.
If my 10 hour day turned into a 16 hour day, I can't just take 6 hours off next week or whenever I choose. We completely avoided the work gossip because we were not secretive about it like a lot of people dating at work were. He has since started flying and is now at another regional.
I'm looking for real answers and preferably your real experiences. Personally I stay away from the inter-office dating. I know I will get a lot of crap for this, but we have damn cool jobs. Assuming you have been to college and go to the gym, you have a leg up on all the desk-bound dorks and travelling salesmen that the average girl has at her disposal.
If you date a FA, gate agent, etc and things dont work out then you still have to see them every day and work with them. Most guys approaching girls are desk-jockeys and push paper all day. Who cares if we fly 15000ft in a turboprop and have layovers in podunk-city, its different and more exciting that staring at a computer all day. You probably have more confidence and cool factor, and it can work to your advantage as long as you play it right (ie not like Mav in Top Gun, no ray-ban aviators or other pilot paraphenalia).
The bright side of a woman who works a lot, is it gives you plenty of time to play golf or do whatever on your days off.
I'm sure that there are more than a few women around here who wouldn't mind coming home to a nice pilot guy after a long day. There are plenty of professional women out there who make way more than you do, but can't find the right guy...those kind of women really dig pilots, navy seals, etc.
I work at least 50 hours a week and travel a fair amount.
The last guy I dated was a nice guy but he couldn't seem to deal with that.
If you can't find any professional women in your town, try bidding long overnights in the bay area There are plenty of professional women out there who make way more than you do, but can't find the right guy...those kind of women really dig pilots, navy seals, etc.It's true that there seems to be a shortage of good "straight" single men here in the Bay Area, and there certainly are plenty of professional women around here.I'm sure that there are more than a few women around here who wouldn't mind coming home to a nice pilot guy after a long day. Conversly, there are alot of women who can't deal with the fact that airline pilots are gone alot.If the average divorce rate is 50% for average healthy relationships, imagine what it is for pilots. The only way a pilot marriage can work is if the spouse has had family members(father/mother) who were pilots/f As, meaning they already are accustomed to that life.
