"Please put your seat in an upright position...


... and a ring on my finger, passenger in seat 16A!"

I went on a business trip today and had a major revelation: I need to start moonlighting as a flight attendant. Man, there are a lot of cute boys flying during the week. (Plus, I'm a huge sucker for a guy in a suit.) No wonder they call them the friendly skies.

Which got me thinking: what other jobs would be good to find men? I've come up with a couple:
  • Hairdresser. You know how I love a well-groomed (read: metrosexual) man. And most of the guys I have dated go to a hairdresser at a nice salon (vs. the barber down the street). So, it stands to reason that working as a hairdresser would be a great way to guarantee at least 30 minutes every few weeks with the same cute guy. I could get to know him over the course of a couple of months, then go in for the kill. (Which is probably the wrong phrase to use if I am going to be working with very sharp scissors. But you know what I mean.) Plus, I'd probably get to work with lots of my second-fave type of guy: gays! (Maybe I could double down and find a SO for Brissy there too!)

  • Tailor. It's not often that putting your hand in someone's crotch is encouraged, but tailors do it every day. And, despite the fact that I can't really sew (unlike the hairdresser idea, which I actually think I'd be pretty good at), maybe I could be an "apprentice" or something. Or just the official measurer chic. If a guy was especially cute and nice (and funny! don't forget funny!), I could slip a little note in his pocket with my number on it for him to find when he got home.

But, I can't really think of any good ones beyond those. (Bartending is out. I am way over the bar scene, so there's no way I'd subject myself to that.)

What other professions would be primo for a single gal looking for love?

Muthu - hmmm, I like the idea. Except that I'd have to wear a bathing suit. Not exactly my best "look" for meeting a guy the first time.

Lilu - duh. You're so smart.

AI - ha ha!

Alexa - maybe I could even be one of those on-air female sports reporters so I can get into the locker rooms?!?!

Slopmaster - I alreday tried the porn route but didn't meet many guys. At least, none who were mustache-less and cute.
