Woman ‘shoots her shot’ with mystery man on plane
| Last updated
We all enjoy shooting our shot with someone we're interested in, but what if you were thousands of feet in the air?
Well, this woman thought it was the perfect opportunity to find Mr. Right and decided to try her hand at a sky high romance.
When taking a recent Southwest Airlines flight, Natalie - from San Diego, California - peeped an attractive man who was sitting in the row in front of her.
Instead of striking up a conversation or pretending to drop a pen in the aisle hoping he’d pick it up for her, she instead decided to pass him a note written on a napkin.
The single gal passed him the handwritten note which read: "If you're single / interested text me sometime," as well as her number so he could contact her if he wishes.
Natalie subtitled the video to show us exactly what she was thinking during the event.
She started off after noticing him: 'Really cute guy sitting in front of me on my flight, decided to shoot my shot”, before handing said note over to her airline crush.
Natalie then said: 'Freaking out because he turned around and introduced himself.’
Then, we got the glimpse of a responding text which confirmed that her crush welcomed the unusual approach.
He wrote: "Hey Natalie, nice to meet you. And yes single and interested," with a little smiling emoji.
Thankfully, she didn’t do this at the beginning of the flight and have to sit through a potentially awkward journey. Explaining when she decided to take the leap in her caption, she wrote: "Also did this towards the end of the flight so it wasn’t awkward for a long time just in case."
Commenters were ecstatic and so was the airline, with Southwest Airlines' official TikTok account commenting: "As the love airline, we’re now invested!"
One user wrote: 'Where do we subscribe to relationship updates?' while another joked: 'Catch flights AND feelings.'
Someone even wrote about a similar event that they experienced, explaining: "I have friends that met on a flight. The theme of their wedding was 'Love at first flight'."
Natalie thankfully made an update video shortly after to let everyone know that the pair had plans to go out on a date, with the mystery man texting about some locations he wanted to go to.
He wrote: "I'm free tomorrow and Monday night. Down for a date night?
"There's a couple of fun places I've been wanting to check out."
Hopefully we don’t have to wait too long until she posts again with some more happy news on her relationship development!
