I was flying from Hawaii. Well I get on flight, and am sitting almost in the back. Well, before I got on flight I notice this girl at the bar. And she looks incredibly familiar. She is very attractive.

...

Who was the girl? 90 percent sure it was Tara Reid.


Very attractive and Tara Reid are mutually exclusive of one another IMO. Maybe it's the fact that she's dumb as a rock. Like, oh my god...

I was flying back after Tuck's interview and there was this nerdy girl sitting next to me and reading a romantic novel. Is it a sign from above about the women I'll encounter in the next two years? Off to a terrible start.

wow I missed a lot on this thread and need to offer a funny story.

A couple months ago I was flying back from London. I had a conversation with a friend of mine earlier in the day about how sitting next to hot guys only happens in tv & movies.

As I board the plane, I think to myself "hm wouldn't it be nice if I got to sit next to a hot guy". Well, I slowly approach my seat and get a look at who I am seated next to. To my shock, I see a nun, fully dressed with habit and all. I couldn't help but laugh out loud. God was sending me a sign to behave.

On a flight from London to Frankfurt, I was sitting next to a morbidly obese woman who was breast feeding her baby. The lady would not stop talking to me and I was trying soooooo hard not to look down at "ya know". But her "ya know"s were so big they were almost touching my arm!

I always get stuck next to the panicky-looking disheveled guys who look like they're nervous about their impending hijacking. :(

Great story RVD. Once again I'm crossing the 'knows a little too much' line, but its very common for strippers to fly out of town on 'business' for a few days, aka to cities where there are big events(and therefore a lot of high rollers) taking place, aka Super Bowl, Mardi Gras, Vegas, big concerts etc. just like consultants do. Clubs that normally have say 20 girls a night will hire 20 more if they know they'll have a big influx of customers. So this very much could happen to others someday. Which of course begs my next question:



Why does that stuff never happen to people like us when we're single?

She was one of those really open girls who would say stuff like "I've lost 20 pounds in the last 3 months but I haven't been working out...look here at my stomach (raise her shirt)." She was dumb though...she said that she was supposed to go out to Dallas last week but she bought a plane ticket on priceline and the ticket was from Ontario Airport (another local SoCal airport but more obscure and further away) and since she wanted driving direction she just wrote in mapquest that she wanted to go to "Ontario, CA" so mapquest took her to the center of the city instead of the airport and she missed her flight (lol).

That's the only time I've sat next to anyone hot on the plane.

RVD.


LOL dear god.

RVD, are the single girls in your program actually hot? If so, where is the EMBA hangout bar? :-D

I'm pretty sure I'm terrible at both models, lol. I'm bad at hooking up because I only want to hook up with people I want to date and I'm bad at dating because I always misjudge things and end up stuck in the friend zone.

Everything got so confusing when all the rituals went away.

I think it's actually a lack of aggression that's my problem. I'm not really a "closer"
