Omigawd! Heather Poole just has the best post about dating a Flight Attendant--written by Lewis. Lewis, who, were I not previously spoken for, I would have to hunt down like an animal and date myself! (Honey, I keed, I keed!)

Here's a little taste of her post:

Dear Heather,

I've really enjoyed reading your blog. I thought I'd add a different perspective...what it's like to be the guy who is dating a flight attendant. ALL red-blooded American men dreamed for years of dating a flight attendant. My turn finally came and I was in awe. I then was rather surprised that the glamorous life we were led to believe didn't really exist. I found flight attendants have one of the toughest lives out there, and to this day I don't understand how they endure it. My suspicions are...those who can't take it drop out in the first year, leaving those who can....

I was horrified...and mystified...that essentially flight attendants get paid door closing to door opening. ALL that work-heavy time boarding....is their "contribution to the airline." ....They report two HOURS before a flight....out of the "goodness of their heart." I was even surprised they weren't paid on layovers.

Wow...I have a whole new respect. You really must have to LOVE what you do to do that. The travel perks are nice, I'm sure, but you really have to work your tail off for them!
