Do Black People Find Red Hair Attractive?


Hello,
I’m curious, do black women like men with red hair? I came up with this question from this web site talking about red haired people http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_hair

One place in the article it says “Rees (2004) suggested that the vividness and rarity of red hair may lead to it becoming desirable in a partner and therefore it could become more common through sexual selection.[18]
Harding et al (2000) proposed that red hair was not the result of positive selection but rather occurs due to a lack of negative selection. In Africa, for example, red hair is selected against because high levels of sun would be harmful towards fair skin. However, in Northern Europe this does not happen and so redheads come about through genetic drift.[14]
And in another area of the same article
States “One variety of albinism (Type 3, aka rufous albinism), sometimes seen in Africans and inhabitants of New Guinea, results in red hair and red-colored skin.[35]

Again from the same article
“Another belief is that redheads are highly-sexed; for example, Jonathan Swift satirizes redhead stereotypes in part four of Gulliver's Travels, "A Voyage to the Country of the Houyhnhnms," when he writes that: "It is observed that the red-haired of both sexes are more libidinous and mischievous than the rest, whom yet they much exceed in strength and activity." Swift goes on to write that: "...neither was the hair of this brute [a Yahoo] of a red color (which might have been some excuse for an appetite a little irregular) but black as a sloe..."[38]
Also in the article
"Many painters have exhibited a fascination with red hair. The color "titian" takes its name from Titian, who often painted women with red hair. Early Renaissance artist Sandro Botticelli's famous painting The Birth of Venus depicts the mythological goddess Venus as a redhead. "
Venus being the Godess of love and fertility in greek myth, so I wonder if Black women and men have any thoughts about red haired people as mates or do black women and men prefer people not of the red haired community?

Please leave comments if you wish.

I can't speak for all Black people,so here are my thoughts. I don't find the combination of red hair/pale,sun resistant skin/freckles very attractive coloring among human beings. With that being said,red hair comes in a variety of shades and textures. Along with other eye color combinations too. The darker the hair and eyes, the greater sense of attraction I would feel.
Physical attractiveness is just part of an overall package for me.I'm more interested in a person's true character as barometer of attraction.
Do I believe that 'Titian' haired people are more sexually passionate? No. Much of that is a stereotype, based of a writer's romantic ideals. It's never been part of a cultural ideal in which I suscribe.
Would I purposely select a mate with red hair? No. But I wouldn't be resistant to the idea of being with a red head, if he had a great personality and emotional stability.
From my experience, I havn't witnessed or heard of a singular preference/attraction for red heads among my freinds. maybe someone else can chime in and add another perspective.

Felicity said...

For myself, I find dark hair and light eyes very attractive, but I have seen black people with red hair, and they have looked attractive.

I DON'T like red hair...unless maybe it is more strawberry blond. I like brown hair, pale skin,and light eyes. (pale skin btw would not be benificial in Africa).

BWtamedKen said...

Hello,
I find this very interesting. speaking as a red head and thus prone to the "curse of the red hair" I have always had problems with my pale skin. but this like anything is something one can not change it's genetic. but I find this funny because this tells me more that My Gf is a very unique woman. I still would like to hear more thoughs about this topic so please feel free to comment and to those who commented Thank you for commenting it's very inlightening.

Sandra77 said...

I don't really care what the color of someone's hair is (or eyes either). It's the full package that will determine whether I find a man attractive. I have a general preference for dark hair and dark eyes, but I have liked guys who didn't possess either. It's always seemed a little strange to me to single out someone by their hair color - especially in these days where anyone can change their hair to just about any color they like!

I LOVE red heads and they don't dislike me too much! I recall once a little red-headed toddler who tried to follow me in a parking lot. His father was embarrassed, calling after him. I said to the father: "Red heads are my market." His FACE turned red, given, well, you know, the THOUGHT of his toddler as a teen or adult partnered with a Black woman....

Anonymous said...

I prefer black/dark brown hair and dark eyes, but I definitely would rather a red-headed man over a blonde

Tori C said...

For me the jury is STILL OUT on this one..lol
I have NEVER gotten along with any BLONDE OR red head I have ever dated!!!
There is ONE red headactor I would just love to date!!!
He starred opposite of Kate Beckinsale..Tony Curran!!! OMG Hotness!!!

But that is the only redhead I can think of!
But who knows I marrying a blonde or redhead who knows..lol

Tori C said...

I meant to add that I prefer dark hair and light eyes...always get to me!!!

LOL I think it was more like you might be robing the cradle LOL. but I know what you mean I'm a redhead and My GF is Black. I look forward to marring her and having a child with her. we often wonder if the child will have red hair. to think of a woman with redhair who is AA. LOL "don't make this one mad" I joke with My Queen.

MystereDancer said... "So enlighten us Ken, what is the curse of the 'red hair'?"

The "curse of the red hair" is talking about the bundle that most red heads have; pale skin, freckles, red hair, and more often then not a temper.

Lenee' said...

I think it all depends on the person. I have seen quite a few attractive red head guys. Simon Pegg from "Shawn of The Dead" for example (i guess he's considered a red head)

and charlie clements from a uk soap called EastEnders :

LeafyGreen said...

I don't know about that question???? Beauty is in the eye of the beholder...I love red hair, freckles and the whole nine personally. I think that every person has their own set of preferences, based upon their own filters...upbringing, open-mindedness, and simple attraction. I usually like men of two different extremes...light (slightly-pale rugged) or dark (deep dark brown). I'm not really a 'tweener no reason it just that way and I love men that look don't look like everyone else which is where the red-heads come into place...

Anonymous said...

I have never dated one, but I admit that I'm attracted to red-heads. That hair color catches my eye more than any other color of hair. I like the variations of the color as well; the more intense/read, the more second, third, fourth, fifth, etc. looks I'll give.

Desiree Lovely said...

I'm not particular, but I find red haired men just as attractive as dark and blond haired men. I love the black hair/blue eyes and blonde/light eyes combos, but I also adore freckles (cause I got them myself)

In the end, whatever catches my eye, but I've heard the saying that red haired men are more prone to being attracted to women of color. I don't know if that is true, but hey. I'm all for a bit of "red" this way...lol

Nice blog....

Falone said...

My last bf was a redhead; my first and I won't say my last, but I wasn't particularly drawn to the color, or anything. It was just him. I guess I find dark hair attractive, but as long as it works for you, I'm down for anything.

Phantom Mare said...

Personally,

For me, I find various hair shades beautiful. I look at the whole package. I used to have a *thing* for the Mediterranean type. But now I see the chestnuts, the blonds and of course the red heads. :o)))

I can say hey, WOW that blond is geogeous but then here comes this red head who is outstanding. It depends on the man. As of right now I don't have a preference. But that red hair is unique. :o)

I can't say that I don't like some type or another--again, it is the package.

Hey, I henna my hair to get that red-tint!!

Phantom Mare said...

Here is a redhedd web site. Scroll down it talks about the guys.

http://www.redhedd.com/index.php/public/blog/view/id_39/

This is interesting because I had actually thought of putting together a blogposting dedicated to red head men. They seem to get the short end of the stick thanks to the "Opie-ism" in media of red haired men.

GoldenAh said...

I like this web site. You're very straightforward. You come across as a nice, normal guy, not shady, or hiding anything.

As for red heads: to me you look like a brown haired guy. That's the thing - unless the guy has flaming red / bright strawberry colored hair - I can't tell if a man is a red head. Although if he's attractive (overall) the red hair is a bonus.

Useless factoid: I read that red heads have the same (heavy) bone density as blacks. Interesting.

Hmmmmm

red hair..it is honestly not my first pick...but I would take it and judge it on an individual basis...so I woould not rule it out. Also I am more inclined to like red hair on a woman, than a man..as much as I can like it..I am not a lesbian (not that there is anything wrong with that)
I have noticed, that some extremely pale people (NOT ALL) have a curious and repulsive similar smell..I know it is not a nice thing to say..and it is really rare, but I have noticed this smell on people in different countries who are not related..it is a weird smell..and very off putting..that also turns me off.
having said that, I think the author of this blog is very cute ( with his red hair) and lovely, and I am sure he does not have that smell...

Hello,
LOL it seems that most people like red hair on women but men get the shaft(to bad most of the men don't look or act like Shaft). Anyway as fot the smell, I don't think i smell, I take showers every day couse when I work out or work hard then I sweet and then I smell. Its funny the things that turn us off. when a woman sweats she glissons when a man sweats he is nasty and sweaty lol. My Queen told me today she would not have liked me if she did not meet me through her friend/ my cousin. she has had many bad experiensed with red headed men. but the women were cool for the most part. but she said I was a real find because I'm normal lol and she loves my red hair now lol. it's funny how red heads have to show who they are to overcome the streotype or society and some bad experences.

Anonymous said...

This is slightly off topic but I have found that the paler a mans skin, the more likely he is to have a zillion moles or freckles EVERYWHERE - his back, chest, legs etc. So NOT appelaing to me. It gets worse because as paler skin ages (both male and female) they develop these weird raised warty bumps all over! They look pretty ugly to me and I certainly DO NOT wish to be confronted with that sight daily. In short I prefer olive skin and darker hair.

Zabeth said...

I have found myself to be very attracted to and drawn to men with red hair and freckles. I don't know why or how to explain it- can anyone really explain why they're attracted to what they're attracted to? Anyway, I like men- so I find all variations of men attractive. But I do have a soft spot for red heads :-)

MzWright said...

Born red-haired; dye without it.

I'm a red-haired, freckle-faced African-American woman, born of African-American parents. People find me generally attractive, and I'm told that I am particularly "cute" because of the hair & freckles. Two of my brothers (red-haired and freckled) are handsome--as well as the brother without the red hair. I think the combination depends on other things like texture, tone, face construction, etc.

Jess said...

fallone, your blog is invite only. Can you invite me?
thanks!

Miss Profe said...

Hmm. I have never really thought about it. While I don't find redheads unattractive, I am not drawn to them physically/sexually, perhaps because I am a medium brown skinned Black woman with dark hair and eyes, and someone with a darker coloring would compliment me better. I suppose it's the same way I feel about short men. Taller men are more appealing.
So, I guess it's like most things we prefer/do not prefer.

bint alshamsa said...

Red hair and freckles are adorable! I've never dated anyone with those features but I certainly would if I were single again. Interestingly enough, I have several family members who are considered black but have red hair and freckles. We have quite a few red-heads in my family owing to the fact that we have some Irish ancestors in our recent past. My great grandmother had red-hair and green eyes. I have a brown skin and a big dark-brown afro to go with it. Genes are a funny thing!

Vive la difference!

Ginger~ said...

I am Black and I am a natural red head. I like Black people. I like red hair. so, yes.
P.S. my skin is golden and I have freckles ;)
...we are so versatile~

Jennifer said...

I find the redhead designer on HGTV handsome. I think it depends on how he is wearing the hair, or how he looks "with" the hair. I think that is what is important. If he looks fine with it then that should not be a problem. I know some men with blonde or dark hair that do not look right with it.

Oh, and to the blog owner, I think it is SOOOO awesome how you are a Christian and are still able to find love outside your race. Unfortunately I don't find too many Christian men open to dating black women, and it's a shame because we are all His children and if anyone should be more understanding it should be Christians.

I LOVE REDHEADS THEY ARE BEAUTIFUL AND POWERFUL AND THAT IS OF BOTH SEXES.

Carolate said...

I find redheaded guys irresistible. And those with blue eyes are the best of all.

I'm not black but my grandfather's father was or it was his father. The point is that I love redhaired men.

Anonymous said...

My grandmother is Af. am. with natural bright red hair and I think it makes he unique. I actually think in terms of instant attraction redheads are sexy but that can change with personality etc.

perviepreistess said...

OK, this may or seem a smigde odd but I'm a black woman who adores redheads after all, I am one. I'm more of a Auburn color but my hair turns up in the summertime. I've actually got a pretty contributory ancestry when it comes to the red given my sir name is McKee. Yeah, people often go WTF? when I joke about celebrating things like St. Patty's Day (which I do every year). I've been told I have freckles as well but I really don't see it. Most people think I'm attractive despite me being a redbone.

I've actually started a redhead social group on one of my entertainment sites that I frequent. We're still fairly new and we do topic discussions of all sorts of redhead attraction. Especially, when it comes to genre of interest we're in, it's anime/manga. An I can say there are several black women in this group who feel like I do.

In the end when it comes down to it, it's to each their own. And despite the physical attractions we as woman and especially black woman are pretty much the same as everyone else. We love who we love and that transcend all else. As much as I love redheads, it gets sacrificed for good loving anyday! Unless, the good loving is being supplied by a fiery companion. XD

BTW, BWtK... you're very handsome yourself and so are those lovely ladies! I found this article googling redheaded black celebrities or people can't remember which.

Anonymous said...

My fiance is 1/2 irish and he has brown hair and the rest of his body hair is red. I like it and it is unique. I tell him all the time that his red beard makes him look attractive.ilipshar- I hope that are kids will have the red hair or red tones. It is unique.

Raquel said...

Hypothetically, I love red hair. I think because I see so many attractive red heads. However, I wouldn't find someone attractive just because they are a redhead.

MissyQ said...

Well, I am a Black woman who is absolutely obsessed with red hair. I consider myself to be arts and crafts oriented, so I know that I'm looking at the whole red hair thing from an artistic point of view. The contrast of red hair, pale skin and freckles to dark hair and skin is visually appealing to me. Just the thought of such a contrast gets me all tingley. :-)
But then again, it could also be the fact that red hair runs in my family. My father's parents were both half Native American. His mother had and ancestor who was half Black, half Irish. My father had a crazy red Afro with freckles. And my brothers are pretty much the same, minus the red afro. They mostly have red facial and body hair, with red highlights in their hair.
Long story short, yes, I find red hair very attractive (especially the deep, dark reds)...it's almost a borderline obsession at this point. And if redheads weren't so scarce, it would definately be my preference.

I love it personally. I'm a black woman from the caribbean and I've met a few persons with red hair and freckles going across their nose, it seems to be the common trait of black people I've met with red hair. In white persons I love it also; I find the combination of red hair and green/brown eyes quite attractive.

I am an African-American female with an ethnically diverse gene pool. I have natural red hair and brownish red hued eyes, as is my skin. I don't particularly care for it on myself because my coloring evokes so many stares and some questions from Black and White people. After doing some online reearch I'm beginning to believe that I have a form of albinism that manifests in red hues in the hair/eyes/skin (type 3).

Chris said...

I am a black man and I LOVE red haired women. I think they are more attractive than any other type of women.

I'm a red-haired white man with green eyes and freckles. I'm pretty shy, but love women, and am especially attracted to darker complexioned women, including mediterranian, latina, and black. I love the personalities of black women I've known,they really make me feel at ease and help "loosen me up!"
Just wanted to say thanks to all the ladies who said they love red men. You made me smile today.

Thank you, Ginger!
I found this site by Googling "redheaded black people," because I am one (well, auburn), and I have always wondered why nobody acknowledges that we exist! [Note, I'm not talking about "redbones"— never liked that term anyway, I'm talking about hair color.] Nobody ever describes black people as having anything but black hair. Well, I've got blond, brown, and red hairs all over my head!

Anyway, yeah: we are so versatile!

I have red hair and I'm black, I guess I can't really answer your question though. I just googled black people with red hair just to make sure there was more than just me :)

Kay Smith said...

I am black and I have to say I absolutely LOVE the (of course, natural) look of red hair on guys, I don't know what it is! The only problem is that I find that many of them, well most that I've met, are, as my boyfriend calls it, "angry gingers". My boyfriend is a red head by the way, he's Scottish/British so his beard is VERY red but his dark is dirty blond with red throughout it, so maybe that's why I don't see that "anger" in him so much. :P

Black Mack said...

Im a black male and I've seen some red heads or gingers with some nice bodies! I mean phat asses! So yes I'm attracted.

lula said...

I'm a black woman with reddish brown hair. My late husband had
red hair and most of the men I've been attracted to have the reddish hair, green/blue eyes combination.
I also tend to prefer golden/tan freckly skin over ghostly white. I would worry about my boyfriend getting skin cancer if he was really pale. I think pale skin is prettier on women.

sarah said...

I'm a black woman. It's funny you should ask. I actually am very attracted to redhead men. As long as they don't have freckles. I only knew two redhead males in my entire life and they both had a crush on me. One of them even tries to act like a black person, and hangs out with mostly black people.

JaNay said...

I am a black women and love love red haired people. I would love to marry a red haired man and have red haired babies. I love their unique look. I also recognize that red heads are often discriminated against so we actually have a few things in common. Regardless, I do find that I am quite fascinated with red haired people.

roslynholcomb said...

I think red-headed men have a natural affinity for black women. My husband is a red-head and pretty much every white guy who ever hit on me was a red head or strawberry blond. I tease my husband that his family sent him out to get some melanin to keep their gene pool from dying out.

I can't speak for all black people, but I certainly do love red hair lol some people might even say im a little obsessed. It's so sad that the men don't get as much glorification as the women, i think it looks amazing on both genders. And what you said about red haired people having to show their personalities in order to overcome stereotypes is also very true for african americans =[ it sucks. do you have any other sites or know of any others that discuss these topics?

Anonymous said...

As an interracial black woman I have to honestly say that I do have an affinity toward the natural red headed man. I find them sexy and it may stem from my first kiss in elementary school. My first kiss was this really cute freckle faced red head boy who I still think about to this day. As innocent as it was I supposed it put some sort of romantic fantasy in my subconscious that remains to this day. I haven't found one who is just as attracted to me yet, even so the curly red hair, adorable freckles get me every time.

I have red hair not anything but red hair i stand out in a croud but I'm also 6.6 so yeah I get noticed alot but I've always been shot down by anyone I liked and been messed with growing up
And I can say red heads have a temper as I do
But that goes to people that are racist towards me because of me having red hair and 99% of my friends are black yes.

Why is because we both get treated the same people of all races say racist things or hurtful things about us because they don't see us as a person they see stereotypes and judge us by our looks rather than who we are as a person so I personally relate more with my black friends than others .

Now as a man with red hair I wanted to be with someone that loves me for me not looks but the curse of having red hair always keeps that from working because in the long run the girl will end up looking at others because they want something that everyone wants and not something everyone says ugly or something else about and they seem to be embarrassed by being with someone with red hair.

I have been with a couple people that say they like it so there is some chances for people with red hair. But a man with red hair has the least chance
Women with red hair have more of a chance than men with red hair.

I got lucky and Was with someone for the past 7 years and she liked my hair and all and we have 2 kids one has reddish hair in the sun but he has brown hair and the other has med blonde hair and no red shows in her hair and neither have freckles but that I think is because they're mom is Brazilian so they can tan too .

But i believe it to be a curse having red hair and I always hated it and the freckles are just as bad if not worse and I have lived with hating my self because of being a redhead and having freckles.

But I think its a curse to have repair and freckles
But I try to make jokes about it too like someone gives attitude ill say I see its cause Im a redhead ain't it. And they get silent just like any black friend says its cause I'm black. And it makes us laugh at them for being ignorant.

So back to the ? Not just black women I mean women in general. Do you like redhead or not?
And if not why not were people too.

Yes, I love women with red hair! There is something about freckles and the red hair that is such a turn on for me. It's not like this is an off the whim type of deal. Even when I was a little boy I always found myself with girls of red hair. Must be in the Dna. Anyway, this is one African American male that is all about women with red hair.

I absolutely love red hair, especially on men I find it highly arousing. My strong attraction started when I was young, but I never really paid attention to it until I grew up and married a redhead. We are not together anymore but I would love to date another redhead man they are so unique. I hope from heaven that there is another red headed hunk for me!

Yes, I like redheads. I like men, both black and white with red hair. Freckles a plus. Honestly though, extremely white pale skin is a minus, but I believe if I am really into him I will look past that.

I find it attractive when redheaded men wear their facial hair in a goatee and sideburns, neatly trimmed.

I also find women with red hair pretty/attractive. This is weird but I also have a belief/stereotype, that they are eccentric & mysterious, maybe its brainwash, lol. These are pluses in addition to their red hair.

Do I as a black woman have a fetish for redheads? Yes.

Do I a fetish for men with red hair? Yes. Black men with reddish/brownish hair and white men with red hair. Freckles a plus.

Would I seek out a redhead to mate with? Yes, preferably with a black man with reddish/brownish hair(1st choice), but white is not excluded(my second choice).

However in general, I like redheads AS WELL as a variety of men. I factor in bone structure, build/body frame/height, mannerisms even smell, etc and factors beyond the physical.

Going back to the mating, in general, I prefer an attractive man (not solely a redhead) to have an attractive child with, physically speaking only.

I can't really speak for all black people myself but being a black female myself I definitely find red hair, natural or otherwise, attractive. It all depends on if it suits the person really.

As a black woman growing up in Africa, I was always fascinated by red-haired men. Maybe it is because I had 2 major childhood crushes on two different un-related red-haired men from the US. Over 20 years on, I still find redheaded men very attractive. Can't explain it.

I'am so amazed that some prejudiced and racist people have found more time and wasted more energy creating more division within races. I am a Black Latina and I like redhaired men very much!! I think that they are gorgeous and if I have the opportunity of dating one, his hair color won't be any problem for me. This is so stupid. Are you attracted to the person or not??? Character should count more than anything else. I know chemistry is important, but it all boils down to a man and a woman, finding themselves attracted to each other. We are all a race, the Human Race!! Give me the redheads I take them, they are cute with or without freckles. My current crush is a redhair guy and he is so charming. Every time I see him I melt inside, he is so hot (and this is not because he has redhair, I do not have a fetish) but I am digging that redhair!!! If you find a great guy, I think that the least thing you will think about if he has redhair or not. I like other color combinations also, but redhair is NOT out of the question for me. You have redhair?? Come to Mama!!! COLORAITO estas bien bueno.(in case this is read by a redhair Hispanic male, LOL). Translation: Redhair man, you are so fine!! Ah, I almost forgot: For the prejudiced people out there saying that redhair male with Black Women (or any dark skin woman) is the worst combo ever, I have to said, go to your lonely TV Dinners, 'cause I got a hot date with a hot man!! Get lost fast and PRONTO!!!Diversity rocks!!!

I am an indian man with medium brown skin and found a woman with red hair, pale skin and freckles. (not just on her face but evrywhere) i didnt think much about her but when i got to know her better and realised what a nice person she was. her red hair and freckles became absolutely GORGEOUS. My friends dont like red hair, freckles or pale skin and think it is funny that i like someone with redhair even though one of my friends has a red beard and wont admit! I think it is wrong to judge someone purely (or almost purely) on visual features. They should get to know the person first and then judge them. I like red hair, but if someone nicer and with more stuff in common came along i would probably like them.

I thought I'd weigh in here for you since I'm in a unique situation myself. I am a redhead, but I have a strong Native American heritage so my skin tone is more red/gold than pale. I don't look like your typical "ginger" since I have more of a Native American bone structure (especially around the eyes/cheeks) and the different skin tone.

My wife is a blond of Norwegian descent, but I've dated black women in my single days. It would be disingenuous of me to say that black women seemed to be attracted to me, but a good many of the women I dated were black.

So, I guess I get the redhead curse and the disenfranchised history both. Lucky guy, eh?

I'm a black woman and must have the love of red-haired men entwined in my DNA. I have a very passionate desire for men with red hair, and it's worse if his eyes are green, or blue. The down side is that there aren't many in my area that are single or not a teenager. It's disappointing, but I remain optimistic. Will be at everything "Irish" this year..starting with St. Patrick's Day events! I've dated 2 red heads when I was a teenager. One was Irish and the other British. The closer to fire it looks, the more I'm wrapped up into it. Help.

Ever since I was little I loved red hair but now mines slowly going darker, I remember that when I was a kid I whispered to my friend (on the train) that this older guy, 18 19? Looked. Had the most gorgeous red hair. So then she couldn't stop giggling, asked her why she was doing it, her answer (whispering) that he heard me, while she's giggling off, he's looking right at me, Suddenly I go all embarrassedly red! Releasing he was better looking than first thought, Grabbed my friend's hand and headed straight off the train!!

As a Black woman, I can't say I find men with red hair unattractive, but I haven't known that many. The few that I have met had other attributes, like a good sense of humor, that were more important than their hair color.
Having said that, I think the darker red colors look better on White women and the lighter shades on the men. I can't really explain why that matters. Maybe I'm projecting the stereotype of red headed men as being nerdy and red headed women as being passionate?
The bottom line is...if I wasn't married, personality and attitude trumps hair color any day for me.

I am a permanently tanned lady, and I LOVE RED HAIRED MEN. THE DARKER THE RED, THE BETTER. a lite dusting of freckles; totally rocks!!! ooohhh, but I tend to not get along with reddish females. they tend to have a pushier (?) air about them. I hate always having to be on guard; friendship wise. not my bag.

Hello,
I am a black female who is married to a red headed, fair skinned, blued eyed man. He is my best friend and has been for many years now. I have to admit the first time I saw him I immediately felt the need to run my hands through his beautiful hair. I'm not sure if I can say that I'm attracted to just red heads,or if I'm attracted to long hair. Either way, I found both and am still attracted to him. I do meet many red headed men and find myself spotting them from a good distance away. So far the men that I have met have all had great personalities. I know a personality goes a long way for me. Most have been funny and love to tell you a good joke. One thing I do know is I am lucky to have found my "ginger" man, and would not trade him for anything :)

I am a red headed man with a black girlfriend. I cant tell you I am all about my Nubian Queen.


She is beautiful, smart, funny and I truly could never imagine dating any other race. I love everything about black women.



I am not one of those guys who "acts" like I am down or any of that non sense I am a college educated successful business owner who just feels more comfortable with a black woman.



I mean beautiful skin, hot bodies, beautiful lips, smart and fun whats not to love.



I am sick and tired of black women being used and miss treated by men, lied to, played, used and taken advantage of, it has to stop & I am here to ensure one black woman (My Black woman) is treated with all the love & respect she desires.



I spoil my queen, like EVERY queen should be spoiled. !!!

Though looks alone won't do it for me in a romantic relationship this is an intriguing topic. As a very dark complected black women I do find true redheaded pale men with freckles extremely attractive. I refuse to over analyze the reason why. I have adored redheads since youth. I have not the pleasure of dating one. Although I've been close to a hot redhead I found appealing and it was exhilarating just hugging him. I do wonder if my attraction would only result in pure lust as seems to be at the moment. Honestly I could see myself in a serious relationship with a tall man with red hair. Just long as he treats me well.

I am black and I have been dating an older man with red hair for a while now. I love him to death! Although we may never have babies since he had the procedure before we met I am hooked line and sinker for red heads. They turn me on so much just looking at them! Besides brunet men I end up bumping heads with or wanting to take there head off...they usually act like they know so much about black people and act high and mighty to much for my taste. But redheads make me tingly on the inside just watching them....Once you go red everthing elses dead!!..
