How To Spend Your Airport Delay: In-Airport Online Dating

airport barIn today’s digital age, online dating is almost commonplace. Match.com even purports that one in five relationships now begin online.

But what about meeting someone in the airport? Sure, we’ve seen “Up In The Air” and know that some trashy women and men avid travel enthusiasts will even give travel dating websites like MissTravel a try, but would we actually plan to meet a date at the airport?

Dating website MeetAtTheAirport.com seems to think that they have a market and, judging by the 80,000 people signed up for the site, apparently many people agree.

Rachel Greenwald, dating strategist and author of the book “Have Him at Hello,” agrees. She told CNN that niche dating sites have “become increasingly specialized in the last five years or so” and “airport dating could be very efficient.”

With airport furloughs kicking in this week, we suspect that many travelers will be quite delayed and might have some time for a little layover loving.

Members on the website are from countries including the United States, the United Kingdom, Mexico and Germany, so you can even take your conquests international.

What do you think? Would you test this for yourself? Let us know if you would – or already have – in the comments below.
