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 »

Dating Another Redhead: Tinder Style
Back in the spring, I was coming out of a loooong (like yearlong), inexplicable illness (more on that in another blog post), so I decided the best way to celebrate being able to do stuff besides sleep and cry myself to sleep was to set up a Tinder profile. Naturally. I know everyone thinks Tinder... Read more »

Redheaded Couples

Redheaded Couples
So…I always make the mistake of asking my friends to set me up with guys. And it always turns out to be a bad idea. Because they always try to set me up with my likeness: slim redheaded men. Now, I have nothing against slim redheaded men, and several of my girlfriends find this type... 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?

On Sunday, I was miffed about not being offered free green beer on St. Patrick’s Day. If people tell me I look like a leprechaun, shouldn’t they give me a drink on the one day a year it’s OK to be told that, dammit? While trolling for the semi-regular Craiglist Creepers series, I found my... 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.
