My coworker Stacy has helped me get some perspective on all this. For her, our jobs are the best way to weed out the guys who aren’t ready for what we have to bring a relationship. After all, if someone is ready, they will not be threatened by our freedom, they will embrace and cherish it. “We are the luckiest women in the world, because we own the world,” she once told me. “If some guy is limiting you, if he doesn’t help you get to where you need to go, then he’s not the one for you. He’s not part of your flight-plan.”
Hey, who else would be able to sweep you off your feet and whisk you away to Barcelona just because you felt like having tapas on a Tuesday? Marry me, fly for free.
