Meet Cute

Do you guys remember in The Holiday when the old guy tells Kate Winslet about the “meet cute” of two characters in a movie? A cute random happenstance type meeting is THE DREAM. In the world of on-line dating there are no meet cutes.


Shortly after my previous post I spot a cute guy (not wearing a ring, because yes I look) sitting at my gate AND he’s wearing an Auburn hat. It’s custom to say “war eagle” (it’s a long story) to someone wearing the Auburn logo. I secretly hoped he would sit next to me (obvi), but I planned to say war eagle to him as we boarded, but boarding the plane got crazy.

I get to my aisle seat and then a lady claims her window seat. Then I spot the AU guy and he’s on the aisle a row ahead and across from me. After he gets settled I say war eagle and we get to talking. The plane wasn’t full so the flight attendant tells people they can move. Well he moves back a row so we are across the aisle and…

WE TALK THE WHOLE 2 HOUR FLIGHT. (Much to the dismay of the people around us).

He’s 27, from the town I live in, but moving to VA for work. He was flying up to apartment hunt for the job he starts in 2 weeks. We had so much to talk about, including our height! He’s 6’2 – swoon. He reminded to a lot of Jason Segel.

After talking for like 1.5 hours (and me already have fallen in heart with him) he asks me my name and then I ask his. He replies “Lucas” and I almost died.

There is a running joke in my office how I need to date/marry a Luke because my male coworker is named Mark and my 2 female coworkers are married to a Matt and John. AKA names of the Gospel writers – Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.

I knew through our conversation that he was single and I alluded to it as well. Once we landed I rifled through my wallet for a business card to give him. I had to. I said something about how if I get this job and move up here we’ll have to start an “Auburn Club.” He gladly took it and said how he didn’t have his new ones yet for his new job.

We deplaned and walked to baggage claim/ground transportation together before it was time to go our separate ways. We shook hands and said goodbye.

It was like the best first date ever.

Praise the Lord I looked cute-ish for the flight. So we’ll see. Even if that one 2+ hour conversation is all it ends up being it was still freakin’ awesome!

Now I’m at the hotel and need to get back to interview prep since I didn’t get to do ANY on the plane, but it was well worth it!
