Online Dating for Redheads
Online Dating for Redheads is a sponsored guest post.
Are you a redhead, or someone who is innately attracted to redheads (really, who isn’t, they’re gorgeous!)? Did you know that there is a whole world of online dating just for people whose tresses set the world aflame? They are perfect for someone how just loves auburn hair, but what’s in it for someone who has spent their life being categorized by their hair color?
Having the redhead gene is rare; it’s a recessive gene, and the only way to have a redheaded child is for both parents to be carriers of the gene – meaning at some point in history both parents have redheaded ancestors. So, it is hardly surprising that people with this hair color are often singled out, both for admiration and for jokes. The myths, legends and research that revolves around this rare hair color is seemingly endless – from mentions in the bible, to effects of anesthesia.
What does all this mean for dating? Rarely will you have someone who is on the fence about whether they find this hair color attractive. People might ‘give or take’ a blonde, not ‘mind’ a brunette, but when it comes to auburn, strawberry blonde, ginger or flame, people have a stronger opinion.
Being judged by something you really can’t change (this shade likes to hold its color and is very resistant to transformation) is unfair – but the modern age allows you to weed out the undesirables with no taste before you ever have to meet them.
Are Dating Sites Worth The Time & Effort?
Dating sites have come a long way and are not able to use quite sophisticated filters and algorithms to increase the chances of making good matches. You might think that a dating site would make more money if people didn’t end up in their happily ever after moment, but in reality the more happy couples that a site pairs together the better their reputation, and the more people they will get signing up (and paying their membership fee).
This is one of the reasons why you will find dating sites that cater for a niche market, and even dating sites that seem more ‘mainstream’ will usually have filters that allow for people to get quite specific with their likes and dislikes. Websites like https://www.datingthrone.com/redhead-dating-sites/ are great for being able to direct you to dating sites that will fit your needs.
Once you’ve found the right dating site, it becomes even easier to find people who are likely to make a great match. The ‘trick’ is to make sure that you put accurate information about yourself into your profile that is pretty unambiguous. Does “loves basketball” mean you really enjoy watching the sport, or that you play in a representative state team?
Make The Most Of Being A Red Head
Those mysterious half shadow black and white or sepia toned profile pictures may be popular, but when someone is skimming through a sea of black and whites, having your hair in its full color is always going to make them stop in their tracks – whether you have the deepest of auburn or the subtlest of strawberry blonde.
What about all the stereotypes and tropes about being ‘fiery’? Embrace them! Have fun with the clichés if they fit your personality. Are you a slow burn or quick to spark? Answer the burning question about dating redheads to do with their drapes and carpet. It would be hard to guess if there were more ginger or blonde jokes, but no doubt you’ve heard most of them, and they have never been funny. This doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy yourself by mocking all the jokers, or even simply stating quite categorically that ginger jokes will get them blocked.
Is It All About Appearance?
Few people want the only thing that attracts someone to be their appearance – but generally it is some aspect of your physical appearance that draws someone’s attention to you. It may be your smile, your eyes, your butt, or your hair – it may even be your shoes.
What first draws someone’s attention to you is hard to predict, but what really matters is how long that attention lasts, and rarely will you find a long-term love based on the way you look.
Even though red heads don’t usually go grey (think gold then white!), you still want to find someone who will love you no matter how many wrinkles you get. Online dating gives you that chance to move at your own pace, and to get to know someone before you even met them in person.
Of course, it does give you the opportunity to practice keeping that apparent temper under control, but really, if someone your chatting with on a dating site is already making you see red, it might be time to swipe left.
Winning Over A Red-Head
If you’re not a flame-haired temptress yourself, you might need a few conversation starters to make your introduction. You’d be wise to avoid the more tedious suggestions of temper tantrums, and probably best to stare clear of the research that says they get more sex https://www.menshealth.com.au/redheads-have-more-sex.
You could ask if they have Scottish or Irish ancestry (which is a pretty good bet, as the highest percentage of redheads have this lineage, or talk about it being an honor to have a red-headed child in Denmark – this one may be a myth, but who cares, it should be fact, maybe convince your prospective ginger to help you make it so.
