It's Christmas day and i got a flight to catch. after a week full of sex i expected nothing at all this holiday, maybe an adventure would come in my way or droughts and frustration. It's mid day and i was ready to board my flight, I love flying. you never know what's gonna happen in the air, or the people who sit next to you or when you reach the destination. It's not my usual airlines but since that's the only flight available i took it. When i boarded the plane i saw this cute flight attendant smiling at me. I smiled back. He's around 5'11" white, cuddly build and wearing glasses. totally my type. As i reached my seat i just hoped hard that he would talk to me and gave me special treatment hoping since it's christmas it's full of miracles and presents. He checked me out and I checked him out back every time got. Then the unexpected happened, his food cart bumped into my seat and he told me "Sorry that's my fat ass" in a swishy way, it was an affirmation that he's gay. I smiled inside but a bit turned off. haha. It's a 7 hours flight, should be long enough for him to strike up a conversation with me. I had no idea what was gonna happen but i kept my fingers crossed. I thought he was quite interested in me so i was just hoping that he would talk to me, but when we were halfway through the journey he seemed busy and he ignored me few times even when i gave him "the look". I knew deep inside he was interested but hey maybe he was just way too focused on his job. So I thought about different strategy, i wanted him to serve me so he would talk to me. So asked him to get me water, then extra serving of delicious tiramisu, then gin and tonics. He got the message but i reckon he got annoyed. I gave up when we were almost landing. I was gonna gather all my courage to asked him out but it seemed that he gve me a little attitude and ignored me even more. Maybe he was just playing hard to get but I knew that he was keen.
Oh well, It's his lost i thought. Once i get there my mood changed completely, I miss my parents terribly, my mother was there at the arrival hall and She was glad that i was there to celebrate Christmas together. The next day i went to my favorite cafe to use their internet as i don't have internet at home. I logged on through grindr and I saw familiar face, a cutie. I saw this profile in Sydney not so long ago, so i started a conversation with this guy.
OMFG. turned out it's him. the flight attendant who i was hitting on last night. It almost gave a heart attack. I didn't expect this would happen. small world. We started chatting. He's kiwi and been working for the airline for years. He doesn't live in Sydney but he's based in Auckland. He's very well travelled (Duh) and very cultured. Plus HE LOVES ASIAN GUYS.
I was really keen to meet him but he was running out of time, he needed to go to go back to sydney that evening. Oh well, it was that close. I found the whole experience very intriguing.
Update: We had a chat for a while and exchange facebook hoping that i would see him in sydney sometime, he seemed decent and into me. After the new years, his profile was gone. both in grindr and facebook. i knew what it meant. I was blocked. oh well. It;s his loss.
