When on an airplane, do you hope to meet someone interesting sitting near you?

Id prefer to be just left alone.
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Monday 12/6/04 - 1:00:51 AM EST (GMT-5)
I don't have any problem talking to people, but usually I just put on my headphones and grab a magazine or book.
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Monday 12/6/04 - 1:31:33 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'd like to sit next to someone hot!
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Monday 12/6/04 - 1:35:24 PM EST (GMT-5)
yeah it makes the plane ride go by so much faster if you have someone to talk to
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Monday 12/6/04 - 1:38:30 PM EST (GMT-5)
just as long as theyre not middle eastern shady
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Monday 12/6/04 - 1:54:53 PM EST (GMT-5)
No. I don't want to talk to anyone while in a confined space (see: "Trains, Planes, and Automobiles")
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Monday 12/6/04 - 2:00:07 PM EST (GMT-5)
I like to sit next to a hottie, hopefully an interesting one, but if not some backup headphones, music, and magazines would do.
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Monday 12/6/04 - 2:01:19 PM EST (GMT-5)
I prefer to be left alone.
17 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Friday 1/14/05 - 9:17:43 AM EST (GMT-5)
No. I hope that everyone will leave me alone throughout the flight.
17 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Friday 1/14/05 - 9:20:13 AM EST (GMT-5)
I go with being left alone. I don't need idle chit-chat while on an airplane.
17 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Friday 1/14/05 - 9:22:27 AM EST (GMT-5)
Since I'm always stuck in coach next to a boring person, I'd rather have someone at least semi-interesting next to me.
17 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Friday 1/28/05 - 12:25:54 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yeah, if youve ever been on a plane you would probably notice that they are not the most exciting experiences that you will ever face in your lifetime...so yeah im sure that we all would like to have a person on the plane that we could have a nice chat with so we wont be soo bored!!
17 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Friday 1/28/05 - 12:28:39 AM EST (GMT-5)
I would prefer to have someone interesting to talk to if I were ever to go on a plane. Sure, I could read or something, but I'm more of a people person. And I love to talk.
17 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Sunday 1/30/05 - 9:49:49 PM EST (GMT-5)
i've never been on an airplane, however if i ver do fly yes i would love to be beside someone intereting, i love meeting new people, so this would be great!
17 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Thursday 2/17/05 - 6:52:39 PM EST (GMT-5)
I just hope they keep their mouth flaming shut!
17 yrs ago - Thursday 4/28/05 - 2:36:40 AM EST (GMT-5)
I kind of just hope nobody sits next to me, so then i can come and go as i please.
17 yrs ago - Thursday 4/28/05 - 2:41:34 AM EST (GMT-5)
I hope to have someone quiet, thin and clean next to me. Emphasis on the quiet. Never ever engage in conversation with your neighbour on a long haul flight.

Wow, lots of unsociable anal retentives on here then.

Might explain why nobody ever talks to each other anymore than on the internet.

I hope the fact that being actively vocal makes you a far more attractive person (and has been scientifically confirmed in multiple studies) makes you feel a bit more confident and interested in talking to other people in real life.

16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Monday 5/23/05 - 6:29:31 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, but it never happens.
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Monday 5/23/05 - 7:22:35 PM EST (GMT-5)
no, i hope to get where i'm going in one piece.

Wow, that's sad. I agree with Pipelias. Our world is just so unsociable these days. I would much rather sit next to someone interesting and talk to them on a plane. That happened when I flew to Germany last year, and this guy and I had an awesome conversation! :) There are so many interesting people out there with exciting lives, it'd be a shame to pass up an oppertunity to talk to them and learn something new! ;)

16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Monday 6/13/05 - 5:50:59 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, I really don't like to talk to people on the plane. I like to sleep, or read.
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Monday 6/13/05 - 5:53:52 PM EST (GMT-5)
I would love to meet someone. It would make the flight go faster and you might just find the love of your life! *Awwww Cute!*
