I have two dating rules:
1. Don't date gingers.
2. Don't date ginger philes.
Who does this leave me with? Ginger haters. Therefore, following my own rules would leave me dying alone and celibate forever. So I usually end up with ginger philes. And I usually end up getting burned because they see me as some sort of fetish without a soul. Er...I mean, that part may be true...let's just say they care more about hair (in more than one place) and skin color more than personality.
So that leads me to gingers. Apparently lots of gingers love each other, and I found a really cute picture of a ginger couple (see previous post). They almost look like aliens, don't they? I only mean that in terms of it being odd to see a picture like that, of two redheads together.
I never felt I was attracted to gingers before, but maybe it's time. The thing is, now I might have a potential daywalker (shudder) which I haven't even thought about categorizing into my rules, because they are so rare. I mean, a redhead with a Jew fro who CAN TAN -- really? That's got to be some kind of sub-human (or better than human?) mutant -- right? How does that even work with all these studies about mutant redhead genes and our increased susceptibility to skin cancer and our intolerance to pain and allergic-to-everything-ness?
The world's population contains 2 percent redheads. Of that, 0.0333333 must be daywalkers. Can we define them as a separate species? And are they dateable? Or just blondes in disguise?
And most importantly (or not at all importantly), If I dated one, would we ever be able to go to the beach together?
And last but not least, am I a daywalker unaware of my special...um...situation? Do daywalkers have souls??? According to Urban Dictionary, " Hated by true Gingers, the Daywalker can sustain extended periods in sunlight and even has traces of a soul." Interesting....
On a related note, anyone wanna start a Ginger Separatist movement?
