Would you date a pilot?
What Guys Said 30
Being a pilot, especially a commercial airline pilot, entails responsibility for the lives of others.
You also have to be pretty darn smart.
You have to be able to keep a cool head under pressure.
And you get to wear a dashing uniform.
Which all adds up to a pretty attractive guy.
For female pilots, no offence, but I think guys care more about looks than your profession. Luckily for you, you should have no trouble in that department.
It still has a mystique about it - the daring aviator. It's also a cool job, flying a big metal tube at close to the speed of sound and not exploding.
Do they (the girls lusting after them) realise he'll be away from home, overnight, in hotels, if he does long haul? Or they he'll be doing long tedious hours if he's a short haul pilot, back and forth and back and forth? Maybe they want that, so they can have a dude on the side?
It's definitely quite a bit harder than driving a bus. I could drive a bus before I had my license. If I got in the pilot seat of a plane everyone would die, period, because I do not know how to pilot a plane. The ego undoubtly comes from being in high risk, possibly life or death, situations on a regular basis. Do that for a a few years and see if you don't have a huge ego too.
It sounds like you're pretty sour about it. I wouldn't like dating a pilot or flight attendant because they'd be gone a lot.
Sounds like you had a bitter experience with one. My brother is a commercial pilot and I've met some of his friends, and none of them seem stuck up to me.
No because they'll always keep flying here and there and someday get crashed. She wouldn't get time for me...
Yea, "this is your Captain speaking in the (cockpit)."
"I got my hand in the throttle."
"Thanks for flying Virgin"
Female pilots make me think of these phrases.
Of course I would love to date a female pilot... I am a pilot as well there would be a lot to talk about!!
i always thought being a pilot would be a cool job
i think pilots do have a bit of sex appeal to the ladies, because hey are usually well traveled and have a stellar uniform
A lady pilot would be awesome!
i think i would be attracted to all her stories of travel and flying etc
never met a lady pilot
but last time i went to italy i had the most beautiful stewardess, i flirted with her/complimented her and talked with her for the whole 8 hour flight lol :)
Although being a pilot might be very boring if you do long flights etc...
Without hesitation. I would find her job fascinating.
Its amazing date a pilot, we can get the chance romance with her in the sky..
a womens status or job does not impress me
They're quite rich. That's a big reason.

If we got along and I liked him, I'd date him. I was going to join the Air Force and become a pilot, so it is a common interest I suppose. I even went to NASA for a special training seminar, and I enjoyed talking to others about flying, space, etc.
I have never dated a pilot, though. I don't limit and want any type of guy, other than a kind, considerate, loyal man. His profession or hobby can just be an interesting factor. :)

No, my great-grandfather was a pilot and a serial cheater. He eventually left my great-grandmother for his secretary at the flight school. Talk about reinforcing stereotypes. Also I'm very anti-military so I feel like that wouldn't go over well.
I don't know any pilots... so I can't say.
I think they have a bigger ego because they have a bigger responsibility - if something happens a lot more people die basically.
I wouldn't be attracted to an egotistical person - but maybe those girls are gold diggers (if those pilots make a lot of money) or they met them before they became like that... Or maybe they just like those kinds of people.
I don't think I would date someone with a massive ego and who was stuck-up, but in general I suppose being a pilot is about as attractive as any other profession. Well, not astronaut...
one of my male friends is a pilot and i do fancy him but i wouldn't date him he is to good of a friend aand i always find if you date friends it spoils the friendship
I don't really see why I wouldn't date one. They make more than enough money to support themselves. I also heard that in order to be a pilot you need to be a strong communicator and in a relationship communication is very very important.
Well its not like I can drop by his work in the sky. Of all things, meeting (therefore dating) a pilot would be rare. I would assume they would need lots of confidence in a high-risk job.
flying is way more complex then bus driving
its a lot more rare and they are paid pretty well. thats why
I wouldn't just say they are glorified bus drivers. Little bit harder to fly a plane then it is a bus lol
i dunno because i wouldn't be able to meet him as much as i would want to... :/
No, what if they're plain disapears, or it crashes. just no
I wouldn't date a pilot, tbh
