The ginger (dis?)advantage

    So, I have grown up and gone to college in the middle of cornfields for my entire life and therefor have no knowledge of the gay dating scene. As you can tell from my pics and my screen name I am a ginger (and proud of it!). Unfortunately not very many gay guys around here have taken me being a hair follicle minority very well with one going as far as saying "you're cute but I don't date fire crotches". I love being a ginger, at least when its not too sunny outside, so I'm not looking to change my outward appearance to satisfy someone who is hating on all the red heads. Therefor I have come to you fellow RJers to ask any of you red headed lads this question,

    "Do you find your . . . lets say gingerness . . . to be an advantage or disadvantage when you are trying to meet a guy? If you have found a way to harness the power of your gingerness effectively, what's your secrete!"

    Thank you for all your help guys and remember to stay strong my fellow ginger brothers! icon_cool.gif

    Yeah I've noticed, but I was curious to see how other red headed guys deal in the gay dating world. It's not so much an appreciation thread but an advice thread for fellow gingers. icon_smile.gif

    When gingers get a tan, it's called "Pangaea" because all the dark spots get large enough to merge into one giant continent.

    BTW, I was just told that today by a new ginger dude at work who just started today. icon_lol.gif

    I've learned that guys often don't really know the reason why they are attracted to or not attracted to a guy. They may pick the most obvious physical traits because those are what stick out to them. But personality traits are often fully able to neutralize and even overcome those effects. It's the main reason why online dating is so hit or miss.

    I don't have a soul either, so I can empathize with ginger's plight. I mean, I have Soul--just happen to be listening to some French Soul at the moment--and I can dance like a black man.

    I discovered I had no soul when automatic doors at Walgreens didn't open as I approached. A few bloody noses later I learned to wait for Christians to walk up to the door, allowing me a chance to dart past. Christians are as plentiful as cockroaches in these parts, so I never wait long, even in a rainstorm.

    Anyway, I worried that some men may be able to detect my soullessness--on a visceral level. However, most men are unaware, and I can trap most of them into revealing where they live and sleep. As long as they don't have an automatic door to their house I easily gain entry, sit on their chest and inhale.

    Don't worry, I don't squander that opportunity to squeeze into Walgreens and pick up some mint-chocolate-chip ice cream from the freezer after my incubation sessions.

    Having no soul (at least at first meeting) confers many advantages to me. I suggest you use those advantages as well.

    I'm naturally a ginger, and aside from avoiding the sun like it's the plague, it's not too bad. But I find that guys are either 0 or 100 with it. Either they think redheads are undateable or they have this creepy roofie-esque fetish about it.

    Ok my version:

    I'm naturally a black guy, ... But I find that guys are either 0 or 100 with it. Either they think black guys are undateable or they have this creepy roofie-esque fetish about it

    I couldn't resist that hehe icon_lol.gif:

    It can also go this way:

    I naturally have a big dick, But I find that guys are either 0 or 100 with it. Either they think big dicks are too huge or they have this creepy roofie-esque fetish about it


    ps: gingers are hot, especially the hairy ones.

    I think gingers with brown eyes look really nice but I don't like them quite as much with blue eyes. Gingers are interesting because they can wear colours like orange which don't look great on the rest of us.

    While I'm not a red-head, I know that your gingerness is absolutely an advantage when you are trying to meet the right guys.

    The guys you're meant to connect with, whether as friends, dates, and as a spouse, will think that you're an awesome guy, and that your appearance is icing on the cake (which makes me think you should change your screen name to Red Velvet.)

    Anybody who chooses not to interact with you because of the color of your hair is not worth your time or investment.

    I'd say your ways to harness the power of your gingerness include:
    1) Knowing that your appearance is exceptional
    2) Knowing your worth
    3) Not allowing others' negative opinions to drag down your happiness and your love for your self
    4) Own it

    As a kid we were the ugly redheaded stepchild. How times change.
    I only started dating guys in the last year or so. A majority of the guys tend to like it, maybe for its uniqueness, but I do get a lot of compliments which is nice. I’ve had random guys that will just start combing their fingers through my hair, or what I have of it. In my main pic, it’s buzzed real short but I usually have enough length that it’s evident it’s red. It seems most guys like it and the number that many find it to be very sexy.

    In high school my nick name was resh, meaning red bush. Even then it was sort of joke or they were mocking me, but again – to the guy that gets in my pants now – that fire crotch gets some worship. Seems to drive guys crazy. They love the armpit hair too…..I’m no longer fire engine red, it’s darkened with age but still red.

    I’ve been told and have read that red heads are great in bed, but I think that’s stereotypical….Maybe it’s true. I know for me that I can’t get enough sex and guys do seem very satisfied and say I’m pretty wild. Now my nickname is wildfire. I’ve actually never had sex with another red head though….maybe I’m missing out, lol

    I do think we’re all crazy (in a good way) and like to live somewhat on the edge, I do. That said, I think we have solid souls, high values, and are very loyal friends. But don’t get on our bad side, to the ones that do – that’s too bad. We have tempers. Fortunately I think we’re fairly tolerable to a point and at least speaking for me our always looking for a good time. We like to party and like to socialize.

    My two cents.

    Us ginger brothers need to stick together. From carrot top and woody wood pecker to big red and wild fire – we’ve got it going on. icon_biggrin.gif

    Just like any other hair color some gingers are smoking hot while others aren't. The end.
