“We’ve all heard that travel opens us up to new possibilities, opportunities, and world views, but can it also make us throw our inhibitions to the wind? Are we more likely to move in for that kiss, flirt with a stranger, or even go on a date with someone we’ve met in-flight?
For many of those interviewed, the answer was yes. Nearly 39 percent said they’re less inhibited when they travel. More than 47 percent have gotten up the courage to flirt with a stranger en route, and another 11.5 percent have gone as far as changing seats to be closer to someone attractive. Finally, 51 percent said they tend to drink more alcohol while traveling, which could definitely be behind some of these behaviors.”
