Harry Potter Ginger Love

Harry Potter Ginger Love
J.K. Rowling let the world know that she regrets putting Ron and Hermione together in the Harry Potter series and that Hermione and Harry should actually be together. She also admits that in real life, Hermione and Ron would need relationship counseling. To this I have to say: THAT’S REDIST! Can’t we give the kid... Read more »

Can gingers twerk?

Can gingers twerk?
I’m not sure whether it’s the scrubs he wears or the dog he walks or that he walks a dog while wearing scrubs, but I have a schoolgirl crush on a ginger man who lives in my building. That’s a first for me. And apparently, I fit right in with the zeitgeist because despite a... Read more »

How to Change a Man

How to Change a Man
Blondes V. Redheads If there’s one thing my ex (not so affectionately known as Ginger Phile No. 2) made clear, it’s that he hated blondes. I once showed him a picture of my college roommates and said, “Aren’t they attractive?” and he replied, “No, they’re blonde.” Anyone with straight, dark hair, pale skin and Betty... Read more »

Daywalker Dating Debate

Daywalker Dating Debate
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... Read more »

Hit on Someone Your Own Size

Hit on Someone Your Own Size
What happens when you mix a ginger gal (me) with an S&M-esque studded Madonna bra (worn outside of a shirt)? A lot of genuine male interest, apparently. And I don’t think it’s because of any BDSM fantasies, unless they are hiding it well. Anyway, I, for once, had legitimate, soberish conversations with two males at... Read more »

Why Set Ups Always Go Wrong when you're a Redhead

Why Set Ups Always Go Wrong when you're a Redhead
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... Read more »

Redhead Roundup - Yeehaw! And a rant about redheaded cowgirl stereotypes

Redhead Roundup - Yeehaw! And a rant about redheaded cowgirl stereotypes
It’s about time again for yet another redhead roundup. Did you know someone once told me they thought I looked like a country music girl? And that a girl who lived in a dorm dressed up as a cowgirl and all the men drooled over how great her hair looked under a cowboy hat? I’m... Read more »

Ginger Phile No. 2 Fulfills Ginger Phile Definition

Ginger Phile No. 2 Fulfills Ginger Phile Definition
Remember how I wrote about how Latinos and redheads go together like PBJ? Remember how I also wrote about the trial and tribulations of dating ginger philes? (Mostly that it’s a bad idea.) Well, as usual, I should have listened to my own advice. Ginger Phile No. 2, as I so affectionately called him, is... Read more »

Why Ginger Philes are Worse than Foot Fetishists

Why Ginger Philes are Worse than Foot Fetishists
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... Read more »

    thegingerphiles

    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.
