Redheads Dating Other Redheads

Redheads Dating Other Redheads
Apparently fear of a ginger’s wrath is real, because the guy I was seeing (not ginger) … broke up with me. Via text message. He always teased me for being a vampire, but I think his jokes were a crutch for his fear of my fangs. And he was right to be afraid. Very afraid.... Read more »

Redhead Dating Review

Redhead Dating Review
Lately, I’ve been wondering if it’s smarter and easier to just date another ginger so that I don’t have to worry about being checked off a bro’s “list”. Or possibly even worse, liked for my supposed “feisty” personality. Enter: RedheadDates.com. Or so I thought. Until I opened my account, and all of the messages I... Read more »

Redhead Days Festival Carrot Cake Competition

Redhead Days Festival Carrot Cake Competition
This weekend, a dream I never even knew I had came true: I judged a carrot cake contest at Redhead Days in Highwood, IL.

Want to know what it’s like to have a bad hair day as a redhead? Let me tell you about mine: Last night, my FOBby roommate, who my ex-lover rudely nicknamed Mu Shu Pork, came home at 3 a.m. and began to screech at the top of her lungs. Singing — or attempting to —... Read more »

Obsessed with Redheads

Obsessed with Redheads
In college, I worked at one of my school’s newspapers. The editor-in-chief at the time, besides once using someone else’s office computer to look at porn when he was drunk one night (She found it still on the computer the next day when she went to work. Lots of livid all-staff emails were sent.), also... 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 »

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 »

    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.
