The No Eye Makeup Experiment

The No Eye Makeup Experiment
Recently, I wrote about experimenting with going eye makeup-free. I’ve been tired of putting makeup on my eyes in the morning and spending far too much time and energy (and money) wiping it off at night. I’ve learned to love the look of someone with pale eyebrows and eyelashes wearing nothing but (usually bright) lipstick.... Read more »

Do Men Like Makeup on Redheads?

Do Men Like Makeup on Redheads?
If you’ve been reading this blog lately, you know that I’ve been practicing going sans makeup, save for lipstick. In my last post, I described a man I’d been chatting with on Happn, and how he told me he had a redhead fetish because us lack-of-melaniners tend to look more natural in our overdone makeup...

What Men Really Think of Redheads

What Men Really Think of Redheads
Oddly enough, shortly after the last post about redheads going sans makeup save for lipstick, someone made an interesting comment to me. A guy I’ve been talking to on the dating app Happn started asking me questions about redhead genes (and my ginger phile alarm bells started ringing). He admitted he liked redheads and when...

Craigslist Creepers: Men Who Prefer Dyed Red Hair

Craigslist Creepers: Men Who Prefer Dyed Red Hair
I got a notification in my Google Alerts for redheads for this Craiglist ad. Apparently, the man prefers dyed redheads over natural redheads. Isn’t that odd? Anyone else heard of this?

Ginger Phile No. 29

Ginger Phile No. 29
Last spring/summer, I dated a man who seemed to think I was the one. I was skeptical of his advances but agreed that something about us together just seemed right. We felt really comfortable with each other. He was sweet and nerdy and cute but not too nerdy. We laughed at the same things. We... Read more »

Redhead Bullying

Redhead Bullying
Last night, feeling pretty fresh about yesterday’s National Love Your Red Hair Day blog post, I am minding my own fucking business, taking the Ashland bus down to meet some friends to play Whirlyball, and I hear some dude making random comments. I don’t understand what he was saying, and I have a feeling he’s talking... Read more »

Happy National Love Your Red Hair Day!

Happy National Love Your Red Hair Day!
It’s so shocking how sometimes what we think is our biggest flaw can turn into our best asset. I hate how messy I can be, but apparently that makes me more creative. I often stick my foot in my mouth, but some people truly appreciate my honesty and frankness. I often think too much, but... Read more »

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. I gave myself permission to ignore my doctor’s advice and my (mild) dairy & egg allergies in order to participate, because I couldn’t let a few rashes and my throat closing... 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.
