Have you ever been told by a friend how boring you have become now that you are in a relationship?
No more partying. No more late night phone calls. No more chasing good looking (wo)men.
As much as we hate admit it, there might a be a sense of truth in it.
On Saturday night, the two of you most likely will be found on a your comfortable couch, sipping tea, covered by a blanket.
The KLM app blinked and informed me I could check in.
I filled out my details and then got the option where I could pick my chair.
I remember how I used to always take the middle seat of the three.
If there wasn’t a cute guy on right, there might be one the left.
Nowadays I wouldn’t torture myself like that.
I take the seat at the aisle, either all the way in the front or in the back.
Most business travels I have taken, were on my own.
Which I considered to be convenient. I could “flirt” without annoying colleagues getting into my way.
I’d always pick a hotel with a bar where you would see in drinking orange juice till late in the evening. Party on.
Of course with all hopes up high that someone from the other gender was doing the same, looking for a conversation.
I’d send myself a text message which would produce a funny ringtone.
The guy would laugh and a conversation has started.
I’d pretend I’d was lost in a large city.
Hoping that the good looking man would join me finding that historic museum I wasn’t interested in one bit.
I’d go out alone to an idyllic coffee place trying to get someone’s eye contact.
I’d bump into someone by “accident”.
These actions make me giggle now.
They seem somewhat desperate, but some of them have lead me into a date.
What is your biggest flirting technique?
How did you “give up doing” when you transferred from single to relationship?
