Does anyone else find they have a terrible problem with dating, wherein it seems like guys only like you for your red hair? You know the kind, they have a creepy fetish akin to that of somebody who steals more than 100 women’s shoes from the university library (yes, this happened). For me, it seems redhead-loving men (or should I say, boys?) collect redheads like dolls, doting on their porcelain skin and auburn tendrils but ignoring what’s on the inside. I suppose this is a typical girl problem … of blondes and brunettes alike. (Though most guys who like brunettes seem to like intellectual women.)
One of the biggest problems I’ve had is that guys like redheads' “personalities”, meaning loud, temperamental and most notably, feisty. Despite some of the crazy things I write in this blog, I tend to come off as shy, aloof and depending on the mood I’m in, a little insecure – the opposite of feisty. Men have wanted to date my for my “feistiness” and then later realized, just because I have red hair, doesn’t mean I’m feisty. Then they move on to some blonde who is not dumb but rather is, actually feisty, all the while wishing she had red hair.
Anyone else have this problem?
