Maybe two, because I had a broken ankle on our first coffee date that took place in my Southern California beach town. A lot has happened between then and now. He has traveled non-stop.

An app introduced us the first time, and with the assistance of trusty relationship technology, we have once again flight crew dating in the right direction. Over a sparkling water and a beer, I listen to his tales of adventure in Antarctica, traveling through Thailand, and volleyball tournaments around the world. He answers seriously and returns the question. Now, Miami!

And leaving. It always ends with leaving. Flight crew dating always have to leave— a situation that I sometimes use to escape vulnerability or my own insecurities, but more often, a scenario that leaves me with the sting of hopeless disappointment.

My dating experiences have been that of movies. Fairytale-esque and dreamy with the flip side of heart-aching. Adding years does that I suppose. This is dramatic flight crew dating to the way I once believed that love would conquer miles, mountains, and all the movement instilled by my career. They are 80 percent in aviation.

Meaningful friendships. Meaningful love. I know that a re-de of my very out-of-balanced schedule is in order.
I feel like, just in the last week, I have found so much joy in stillness, in fitness, in food, in first dates, in friends in time appreciating today.
