The Frisky: Why I love my gray hair Every single she-ruby I've ever attempted to date has failed to acknowledge my existence, taken a flamethrower to my heart, or disappeared in the morning like a cinnamon mist.Maybe this is poetic justice, the price one pays for chasing someone based on a single physical attribute.

In this instance, I think "fascinated" is a nice way of saying "obsessed." She admitted to being a redhead, and, therefore, the object of such ardor. The universe makes only so many redheads, and so it makes an impression when a man is beauty-napalmed by one. I've probably dated 50 percent brunettes, 50 percent blonds.

She's asked these men why they are so drawn to the crimson-haired, and the best she ever got out of them was "Redheads iz just hawt, yo! I have had a lifelong attraction to redheads: their alabaster skin, constellations of freckles, and combustible temperaments. I love both, and I've never encountered the usual stereotypes affixed to their hair tones.

So take heart, redheads- you may have been oft-bullied in your youth, but know that’s probably only because you might just be genetically superior to your bullies. Well, my wife has promised me that I have a place in her new world order- so long as I keep doing the dishes.

(The Frisky) -- A reader wrote in asking me why most men are "fascinated" with redheads. And those men who love redheads likely focus on them because of their genetic rarity.

I could blame biology, how it makes a certain evolutionary logic that Man would pursue those women who, by virtue of a few mutated chromosomes, stand out from the crowd.

I could be projecting my own prejudices and desires onto these women, as they are no feistier than any other person.

So far from finding redheads to be ugly or undesirable, the opposite was almost true: they found them so desirable that the redheads were ‘out of their league’, so to speak. Redheads, for example, are more susceptible to toothaches and painfully cold temperatures- but they are entirely capable of withstanding more stinging and pressure pain than the average blonde or brunette.

When asked to comment on the women they approached vs the women they didn’t approach, they rated the redheads more sensuous and promiscuous seeming- both signifiers that would possibly help in the babymaking arena. Not only are redheads not going extinct, they might actually be well selected to thrive. Additionally, in an incredible coincidence, they are better able to withstand the ‘fiery’ pain from capsaicin- AKA spicy foods. It’s true- they need more anesthesia, leading to a pretty common fear of dentists among redheads.

Redheads are almost-universally considered across cultures to be more assertive, confident, and capable- a recent study done by University of Tennessee and Dalton State College found that redheads are 4 times more likely to be CEOs than their demographics would suggest.
