A self-professed “dating coach for men” offers her take on how to flirt at an airport, including pick-up lines for how you can break the ice. I’m not convinced, though…
“Dating Coach For Men” Offers Instruction On How Guys Can Flirt At The Airport…
Blaine Anderson runs an Instagram page in which she offers dating tips to men. Her moniker:
Learn to build confidence, authentically market yourself, and attract women you’re excited about.
Well that’s good, right?
I’m not so sure after listening to her airport dating tips. She claims “people meet while traveling” and it represents a great opportunity to start a new relationship. Here’s her big advice:
- If you’re at the bar, try a playful tease like this, “You come here often?”
- If you’re waiting in line for food, try making a joke like, “I love waiting in line, but should we start Door Dash for airports?”
- (as an aside, that technology exists at some airports)
- If you’re stuck a the gate, try commiserating, “You’ve been stuck here all day too?”
I’m not convinced. At all. I’m years out of the dating scene and don’t plan on ever returning to it, but I would think that would lead to the sort of, “Um, if I flush will you go away?”stare…
Wisely, she does recognize that there are times in which it is not appropriate to approach a potential mate:
Yes, there are times when it’s *not* appropriate to approach a woman at the airport, like if she’s engrossed in work, or she has headphones in…
If only my seatmates had the same situational awareness when I am trying to work and they feel like talking (usually, hearing themselves talk…).
I will say that the old tried and true method of chatting while at the bar seems to work. I’ve largely stopped drinking this yer, but conversations always start with anyone around you, regardless of gender, when seated around the bar.
Kudos to Anderson for starting a conversation on airport dating, but I’m not sure her highly original pick-up lines would do much good. Then again, an aging married man is certainly not her target audience.

I’m pretty sure people let along don’t like talking with strangers at an airport in general. But hey, you miss 100% of the shots you don’t take
“Then again, an aging married man is certainly not her target audience.” I wouldn’t make that assumption. Dating coaches like her target anyone who is interested in what she sells. Lots of aging married men would love to flirt if they knew how to or had the courage to do so, especially when they are on a business trip… wink wink.
Thanks for continuing to push historic sexist tropes. Men should chase women.
I have a few tips for women on how to be good wives, on cooking and cleaning and the best time in the day to ask permission from your husband for doing anything. Would it be too much to ask women to wear veil in public too?
“Sexist tropes” end when people behave differently. If women take more of the initiative, then men wouldn’t need these tips. But in regards to women giving men dating advice, there’s an old adage: “Don’t ask fish how to catch fish.”
A woman or two has come onto me on a very rare occasion in my lifetime. Even though it’s very flattering, usually it involves MONEY. But hey maybe not. Love is the answer.
Just for what it’s worth, Debit’s a troll so don’t read too much into what this clown says. Debit’s comments these days have been toned down compared to what was said in the past, which were basically these alt-left, racist, anti-semitic, rude comments trolls would say on reddit or something.
Opening lines are so 1990. What man initiates anything these days with a woman while traveling? Eyes forward, mouth shut, and if they talk TO YOU, well, there you go. The danger is too real these days otherwise for misunderstandings and engaging some bat crazy woman “influencer” who decides that a simple hello and general chat means something else. I prefer to sit in the corner like the Dos Equis Guy and sip my Old Fashioned. Otherwise, porn is free.
Stay thirsty, my friend.
If you think it through, the typical airport bar scenario is an incredibly low yield proposition. There are exceptions of course. For the most part, lots of people there aren’t single, or in your desired target range, or they don’t live anywhere near you, or they aren’t even going to be in the same city as you 6 hours from now.
Sure there was that one time back when Southwest had club seating and the flight was delayed so the only people in the bar were going to same place we were, and since it was southwest we could all sit together on the plane, and because it was delayed the FA gave us free drinks on the flight– but those days are long gone….
Pardon me, it was called “lounge seating” on Southwest back then.
Anyways, the point is, if you chat someone up a little pre-flight, and they sit in that crazy lounge seating with you, it’s a pretty good sign that either they want to talk more to you, or that they’re just as bad as you at getting a decent boarding number.
As a 20-something, I’ve been to lots of bars & initiated or been drawn into conversations (and even occasionally hit on lol), but I don’t remember a single time this happening at an airport. Granted, I’m usually in a lounge bar, and will at most talk w/ the bartender.
Ah, actually there was one German dude drinking heavily in the Lufthansa lounge in Boston who offered to drive me to my lodging upon landing in Munich… I scurried rather quickly to and thru immigration upon landing after that one!
She’s a very infantile person like most western women.
I thought the #MeToo was still alive in America.
Caution: any flirting in America can be taken as sexual harassment and violence against the female gender. Good Luck.
Strictly in the interests of science I think you should try out her suggestions.
8/5/2022…the day @liveandletsfly jumped the shark.
Most of the mutants that post here would have a tough time picking up women at an airport and the use of a pick up line would probably end with a call to security. The rest that got past the opening would have her running away once they start in about Brandon and libruls ruling America
Uf! The amount of filters on top of the makeup on this woman lead me to believe she shouldn’t really be offering any sort of “how to pick up women” advice. Or at least be expected to be taken seriously. If you’re already presenting a false likeness of yourself to your “followers”, then I can only imagine what her IRL persona is like. Not beauty shaming necessarily, but c’mon…if you’re trying to sell yourself as someone who can coach others on how to pick up the opposite sex, you should be fairly smokin’ hot.
At least she’s not the Home Depot girl. https://www.google.com/search?q=amanda+marie+keshner+home+depot&client=firefox-b-1-d&sxsrf=ALiCzsZGUm7QkcdDepaHFtNDvGNLT456wQ%3A1659825792070&ei=gO7uYpHoA_S7qtsP8_CImAk&oq=am&gs_lp=Egxnd3Mtd2l6LXNlcnC4AQH4AQEqAggBMgQQIxgnMgQQIxgnMhAQLhixAxiDARjHARjRAxhDMgUQABiRAjIFEAAYkQIyChAuGMcBGNEDGEMyChAAGLEDGIMBGEMyDRAuGMcBGK8BGNQCGEMyBBAAGEMyERAuGIAEGLEDGIMBGMcBGNEDwgILEAAYsQMYsAMYkQLCAggQABiwAxiRAsICBxAAGLADGArCAgsQLhjHARjRAxiRAsICCxAuGMcBGK8BGJECwgIIEC4YsQMYgwHCAgsQLhiABBjHARjRA8ICCxAAGIAEGLEDGIMBkAYKSJQZUMYEWJkHcAF4AMgBAJABAJgBkAGgAf8BqgEDMC4y4gMEIEEYAeIDBCBGGACIBgE&sclient=gws-wiz-serp
Timing is everything. Better to pick her up at the baggage claim where it might do you some good.
I prefer to rent by the hour, nothing more than open your browser, browse the gallery, pick from the menu, check the ratings (yes, they have ratings), and then a couple of clicks to set the appointment. You await the arrival, you both know why you’re there, and complete your transaction. When your done, she leaves, no complaining, no cuddling, no conversations.
There’s no having to watch any of these retarded “influencers” babbling about things they have no idea about, no awkward conversations with weirdos at the airport bar (Do you come here often? Really?) You’re supporting the local economy, and unlike a strip club, it’s cheaper.
Wow! Have you though of starting an advice instagram channel?
Actually this might be good advice. I’ve stayed away from casual pickups, especially from street walkers. Too Risky with all the diseases going around. You are better talking to someone decent-looking on a flight and on an airplane. At least you can see them in the daylight and off drugs. But maybe I should become a priest.
