Hey y'all! wow, i am so excited! its a long story but it ties perfectly into this! I lost touch with this one girl i liked when i was in the third grade, now, seven years later, she got intouch wiht me through AOL! And you know how she found me? Airplanes are all over my profile! Her mom is a flight attendant for Mexicana and she loves planes too, but not as much as i do. And she completely understands my fascination for them, wow to think, airplanes helped her find me! this is so cool! So i guess that they work for something!

Have you seen the latest Woody Allen movie? It's the story of a jazz musician who's into train spotting and shooting rats at the dump....Now THAT is weird. Plane spotting is soooo mainstream...

It depends of your guy/girl....
With me is cool. My boyfriend doesn't like airplanes but he thinks it's cool for a girl to like these boy things...
He even told me that someday we would spend an afternoon at the airport doing some plane spotting, just because I love aircrafts... how sweet of him!
But I don't like my boyfriend... :|

Im in a similar situation to most people here. Im still in my flight training at the moment as is my g/f. We both fly at the same flying school and usually on the same day. Because of this, it makes it very easy do learn things and study as we can do these things together instead of spending time on our own to do this as Im sure those here who have been through school know, it is very boring :-)
Life can be great when you meet the perfect partner :-)

Sure, my girlfriend understand and respect my love for airplanes, but she doesn't like it as much as I do. But she likes spotting, and she's also into taking pics of planes...so it works out pretty good.

I must be a closet spotter, 'cause when I went to AMS i made up some story about where I was going, rather than confessing to my partner that I was going on the train out to Schipol to spend the afternoon on the observation deck(where, by the way, I saw my very 1st Yak- 42 ..cant see those here in Kansas!!)

My wife is a frequent flyer out of necessity. She doesn't know anything about the planes and I don't think she really cares. When I pick her up at the airport I ask her what kind of plane she flew on (although I already know) and she always says I don't know. But I took her spotting at YVR once last year and now on the weekends she asks me if I will take her to the airport to watch the planes. She still doesn't know a Dash8 from a 767 (I know I know) but she likes to watch them land and take off. That's OK with me!!
She thinks I get a little intense about aviation sometimes but she accepts it and loves me for it. She is a lawyer so it goes both ways. hahaha...

My wife understands - she knows that everybody needs a hobby, and airplanes are mine!
She does find it amusing though when I pick a certain flight just so I can get on a particular type of aircraft, or when I get excited when I lay my hands on the latest airliner book, or when I'm up till 2 in the morning on airliners.net (okay, she doesn't care for the last one - she'd much rather have me in bed with her!).
She knew I was hopeless when last year I needed one more segment to get Continental Elite status. I had a business trip to Baltimore scheduled for the last week of December. I was originally going to drive (it's only a three hour drive from where I live). So to get my segment I booked a flight on Co Express to BWI. My wife got scared to death because of the y2k fears during that time. She told me I was crazy, endangering my life, etc. But I had booked the trip by then, so there was no getting out of it! I took the trip, I got my segment, and I got my elite status!

Well my girlfriend Sarah doesnt mind it at all. Sometimes she will go with me spotting, but only if we go somewhere she want to go after. After our dates we sometimes go to the "Spot", but its at night, but boy, those beacons and runway lights give off a romantic glow. But enough of that, this isn't "Romance" forum. But yeah, my girl likes planes too, and she understands my obsession with Airliners, just as long as i admire her most and i do. Airliners are second to Sarah.

I dont have a partner so I cant really answer this question.My friends have mixed reactions to my huge interest in aviation.Some people love it others hate it.There is nothing I hate more than when I ask people what aircraft did they fly on.They usually dont know so I have to decipher it by asking what airline and the seating config.I think I would rather have a relationship with someone who shared my interest.EI133

My wife is f/a so she understands very well how the passion can be so strong ; sometimes, due to her job, she feds up a little bit with airplanes when she is tired after a long-haul but it never lasts a very long time and, quickly, she can't stand anymore for her next flight. Regarding my friends, some of them are my friends because they love a/c, and for the others, I don't speak too much with them on this subject because I know that they won't understand the stuff.
My parents have their house located exactly in the heading of the runway, on final turn ; they find airplanes interesting and are amused that their son can be so addicted.
