Do You Get Odd Comments?
Jul 18th, 2008 at 2:13pm
 
    Guys will come in all the time and just make odd comments to me. "Pretty red hair on that girl," "Are you really short tempered?" Just creepy stuff! Most of the guys are probably mid thirties to fifty who say these things, and old men wink at me all the time. Blegh! I was just wondering if any of you got odd comments as well.

Many guys have redhead fetishes. In fact, it's probably the most fetish-prone color out there.

The next time some creeper pays you a "compliment," thank him and keep your distance. But rude assumptions such as "are you really short tempered?" should be answered with something like, "Excuse me?" or "I beg your pardon!"
    And even though it isn't polite, you may feel inclined to answer back with your own snarky assumption based on his appearance (ie. "Are you really wearing that?" or "Is that really what male pattern baldness looks like?" and such). Not that I recommend the latter at all, but one might certainly understand if you let one of these slip from time to time.  Roll Eyes

As for me personally, the last fellow that I dated told me that he thought I was gorgeous because he "loved redheads." And I only smiled and said, "That's funny considering I'm a brunette!"
*sigh* Men.  Roll Eyes

Oh, yes, the wonders of males...
I'd have no problem replying tartly, except that most of these comments are made while I am at work, and I don't think my managers would like that much. But yeah, if people ever say anything like that to me outside of a customer service situation, I'd have no problem getting a bit flustered. Smiley

Yes, and how about the odd stares!  Got some of them this morning as I was out and about. Kinda scary but I hurried and walked away.  These stares were coming from young men as well as old men.

Red heads and blondes seem to attract the strange comments regarding hair.  There is nothing we can do to prevent them.  Some times just looking back at them with the "I can't believe you actually said that outloud" look, is the best response.

I was in the store today, waiting in line to check out, and a little kid in front of me said "Look Mom! She's got red hair!" It just made me giggle! If that kid had a super power, he'd be Captain Obvious!

Grin That kid must not get out much.

I live in Scotland, and I'm a natural redhead, but I fly under the radar because I'm more auburn than ginger. There's WAY more red out there than me. The comments I get are from friends/acquaintances who have never noticed the red before, and it like "OMG, how long have you had your hair red?" I'm like "38 years...!" I keep it tied back mostly so it's not as noticable as it might be.

I wonder how much the comments are a generation thing. Folks my age and older might have preconceived ideas about character/hair colour, but dying hair is so common now, you can barely tell what some people are naturally.

With hair your length, Glorianna, I'm sure they are overwelmed by the length and can't even see the color!   Grin

Smiley I keep it tied back, so not many people have seen it down. I heard at work of the 'rumoured sightings' of my hair length, when I let it down to re-do it (done in a flash, of course)....it just made me laugh so hard. Am I the only woman they know with long hair?!
