Craiglist Creepers Part 3: The Other White Meat

This is the third installment of Craiglist Creepers in which I highlight Craiglist ads directed toward gingers. Many of these come from the "Missed Connections" section, which I am sure if you are anything
less than a "10", you are addicted to reading because you hold out a small and shameful bit of hope that just one of the posts might be about you. I was doing exactly this researching "Missed Connections" for The Ginger Philes when I stumbled upon a post that not only was not creepy but proved my "If you a redhead you should move to California" theory. This guy seems just plain sweet! (Although, unfortunately, I hear Californians are all weird regardless of first impressions.) Here's the post:

"an open letter to all the red haired beauties - m4w - 26 (my building, the streets, all L stations)

Let me start by saying you all have made this boy's dreams come true!

I just recently relocated here from California, and never before have I seen so many different shades of beautiful, red hair! From fiery orange to burgundy, I've seen more pretty faces framed by my favorite hair color in the few weeks I've been here than I have for the rest of my life combined. I wish I could get to know you all.

So, if you recently caught a tall, bearded guy looking your way, please forgive me; I was probably under the spell of your pretty eyes and the unique hue of your locks. I wish I wasn't so shy, I always kick myself later for not starting a conversation. Oh well, I just want you all to know you make my day. Keep on being lovely, those blondes have nothing on you!

Sincerely,
An admirer"

Too bad ALL ginger-philes are frickin' psycho! What's your take on this ginger "admirer"? Craiglist Creeper or just a typical Californian who has never experienced the other white meat?

    The Ginger Phile has had the unfortunate disposition of being a ginger since birth. She has tried various medications to cure her gingervitis, including therapies such as tantrum-throwing. Her efforts have been to no avail. Instead, she is trying to write it out, via this blog. Unfortunately, she doesn't think it will bear a soul for her. The Ginger Phile is from the exotic land of Wisconsin, where she had daily inner turmoil over whether she was a ginger or a daywalker. So far, three of three votes say daywalker. She begs to differ, as someone recently told her they would want to be with her if they were biking at night because she is so pale.
