Kathie Lee & Hoda: Airplane Small Talk
How do you feel about small talk with strangers on airplanes? Trip Advisor found that people actually like small talk on places. They talked to more than 4,000 flyers and over half said they like small talk. Kathie Lee said she likes politeness, but she doesn’t want to talk the whole way.
I flew a lot for volleyball and wasn’t always able to sit next to teammates. When I had to sit next to a stranger I usually simply said hello and waited for them to make small talk if they wanted. If they did, I went along with it, but it never lasted longer than a few minutes. I tend to agree with Kathie Lee.

I like the idea of matching you based on personality and interests rather than looks. Besides, like Kathie Lee pointed out, your ex is your ex for a reason so why would you want someone else like them?
