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.
