    Well this weekend I'm dating a blonde lady for the first time in my life. I have only dated brunettes, redheads, and raven-haired women so far. I was just wondering what I can do to prepare for any flak or blowback from other people once I date her. (She is a most awesome person and I am just excited about it!)

    you are worried about what people will think of her hair?

    i take it you are not "white" as this clearly wouldnt be an issue

    with that said, dont care as its her that is important

    I agree but since judgmental people comprise most of my art gallery's clients, I really dislike it when people talk behind him in this business...

    My gf's got blonde hair dyed mind you but still blonde nonetheless, its true blondes have more fun and are not all thick, but it's what's under the hood that matters

    There is nothing you can do to stop other people having an opinion about what you do so I'd suggest that you just get used to that idea.

    Also, ask yourself why this is so important to you...

    What has colour of anything got to do with anything? I really don't get why race is still an issue and why it ever was in the first place.

    If she dyed her hair black you wouldnt have a problem so why have a problem with it being blonde? Crazy! If other people have a problem with it, its their problem not yours.

    You can take this as FACT since I am a blond.
    Blond(e) people like to be taken to restaurants but not just any kind of restaurant. The name has to begin with the letter F or J. Any other and your date will think you're just being pretentious.
    Blond(e) people also like to have their earlobes rubbed clockwise after they tell a joke or make a faux pas. Oddly enough if they do make a faux pas you're required to trump their efforts with something much worse.

    Also don't forget to clean up the mess later. That should go without saying. Also remember the 3 golden rules.

    the most you will get is stuff from your friends giving you a hard time and even then they will be joking. No one really is going to think anything of it so do not stress over it.

    This coming from a guy who is currently dating a blond and dated another blond in the past.

    The last blonde I dated was one of the most intelligent people I've ever known. I've never heard anyone making jokes or poking fun due to hair colour.

    It's like it doesn't actually happen in real life.

    Agreed, it shouldn't matter what other people think.

    Check the carpet colour, first thing.

    I suspect a wolf in sheep's clothing.

    :p

    I think most guys would like to be in your shoes. "Gentlemen prefer blondes," remember? I'm a blonde guy myself.

    Even if it's an auburn that does blonde things...

    I must admit, I'm baffled. Besides the fact that you shouldn't be worried about what other's think, why is this a problem in the first place?

    There must be a cultural divide somewhere in this issue, because I never would have given it any thought at all.

    Very strange question indeed. Blond jokes don't start unless the blond person gives people reason.

    After that go ahead and ask yourself if you're worthy enough to date this lady. Sure I sound like a total bitch, but let me tell you that if I ever came upon a man who went to an internet forum to post about his concerns about my hair color, I wouldn't give him the time of day. I don't care how "wonderful" you are. Heck, take the forum away and if I was aware you were concerned about my hair color this much I doubt I'd want to invest my time in you. Likewise, if a man ever had to feel the way this woman would feel if they were being judged completely on their hair color, then I hope they wouldn't give me the time of day neither.

    Consider yourself lucky to be with a girl who you claim is "a most awesome person."

    LOL @ "ghall".
    And to emphasize, it is sad that this is even an issue. :rolleyes:

    On a side note, and possibly a more helpful one. If her hair color is of issue have you requested 12 months of personal bank statements and a photo of her car? I mean, we don't want something to slip past us do we? Gawd forbid she is not a woman of means, what will your gallery clients think then?! :eek:

    Nope, it doesn't. The only "hair prejudice" I've seen has been against ginger folk. Brunette or blonde, same diff.
    A blonde girl on my course went on to win 2nd place in this years D&AD competition (or was it last year?) and a brunette went on to become a model/actress person. Take that, convention and prejudice!

    Yes, and my experience has been that women are all similar on the inside.
