Using geolocation technology, Air Dates scans the surrounding area for fellow passengers to connect with.Through the app, users can chat with fellow passengers before boarding their flight.Yes, the “sexy waitress in the sky” image prevails, but we are also a breath away from being straight-up superheroes. What man would go out of his way to give a girl his phone number in the middle of the airport and risk showing up late to his gate, yet fall short of making an actual connection? But even so, she’s not getting too bent out of shape about it.
She’s the breezy beauty going to Athens tonight, constantly meeting celebrities on the JFK-LAX flight, or running a marathon in Hawaii just because the weather in New York is gray. ￼“I met a guy through a friend,” another flight attendant, Kia, tells me. I would bid for Dallas layovers and try to fly down as much as I could on my off days.
All this and more, glossed up in perfect red lipstick and heels, strutting down the runway with a smile. Things seemed great, considering, but the last time I flew to Dallas, it was the last time I ever heard from him. You’d be shocked to know she has any dating troubles.
Using video technology to capture and measure wing flash frequency we were able to show that male flies are attracted to specific flash frequencies and not the morphological characteristics of the female flies." Males are strongly attracted to a wing flash frequency of 178Hz, which is characteristic of free flying young females, rather than 212, 235 or 266Hz, which are characteristic of young males, old females and old males, respectively.
The slower wing flash frequency of young females could be a phenotypic trait of reproductively capable females, according to the researchers.

From the simple swipe of a finger to the more complicated algorithms of dating websites, technology continues to push boundaries when it comes to love.
Now a new dating trend promises to match singles in the unlikeliest of places: 39,000 feet up in the air.
This study shows that the design and processing speed of the flies' compound eyes might also play a key role in mate recognition, as well as to support flies' agile flight and maneuverability.
