Every time a friend has ever tried to set me up with someone, it's gone wrong. Every set up attempt has followed a specific pattern, and I am 90 percent sure of the primary reason for failure: they always try to set me up with a redhead.
There are 3 types of people available for gingers to date: ginger philes, redheads and the color-blind. I prefer ginger philes, against my better judgment, as ginger men creep me out. Seriously, it's unnatural for people to have a primary color sprouting out of their heads. On men, it's always more flamey than women, it seems.
Secondly, the men my friends try to set me up with are always skinny. Now I know a lot of women who are attracted to spindly men, and I am very happy for them. And lucky for them, skinny men will likely not blow up in their '30s and '40s like most men. However, I am not one of these women; I like a man with a bit of meat on him.
Girls always seem to make the mistake of thinking I want someone who looks and acts somewhat like myself: short, thin and ginger, and a little on the quieter side ...like me. Little do they realize how much I disgust myself with my creepy lack of melanin and disappearing-into-my-face clear eyebrows and the way black mascara looks too harsh on me. As much as ginger procreation is on my agenda, I want someone complementary -- not my mirror image. I wish girls would ask what you're interested in before trying to set you up.
And I wish people would stop trying to set redheads up. It's like some weird form of incest or something.
However, the couple in the picture on this post is tres cute.
Have you ever been set up before? How did it work out for you?
