Which is better? Do most guys really prefer blonde?
I read an article saying that guys prefer blondes to date and “have fun with” but prefer brunettes to settle down with and have as a wife. Why is that? What does your guy like better?
I’m a brunette and my guy had said he liked blondes better until he met me…which probably means he still likes blondes better which of course he cant tell me that lol.
This is not meant to offend anyone!

I have been brunette and blonde. I prefer being blonde…
My fiancee likes me either way (as long as I don’t cut bangs into my hair he says lol)

Haha my finacee says the same thing! I think they do prefer blondes. I had mine blonde and when I switched to brunette all my girlfriends loved it and every male I know said they liked it better blonde (except my finacee of course).

Fiance likes brunettes/auburnheads. 🙂
He’s not a fan of blonde. His ex went blonde and he hated it (and it looked terrible on her).

@futuremrsbc: I have pretty nice brown hair (or so I am told), and my SO would probably disown me if I went blonde lol. I was blonde(ish) before and it didn’t really suit me. I just love blonde hair, though. I’m pale so I’d have to really pile on the makeup to not look totally washed out, and my hair is dark enough that roots would be a big problem, so I’m not sure I will ever be blonde. My SO just loves brunettes… not sure exactly why!
I love natural blonde hair, though.
I think what you describe, guys wanting to have fun w. blondes and marry a brunette is just based on stereotypes. Like blondes have more fun, brunettes are more shy and intelligent etc. I am sure some of it rings true, but in general I think it’s a bit silly. Yeah, if you look like Holly Madison (fake boobs, peroxide blonde) then you’re probably trying to draw attention to yourself in a skanky kinda way… but your average bottle blonde might just like the way her hair looks blonde, plain and simple.
I think brown hair probably suits my personality better… I am pretty introverted, not a party girl at ALL, etc.

Darling Husband likes brunettes exclusively. Interesting, because I never cared (I was open to men with any color hair- you know?)

I love blondes/redheads, my Fiance likes dark hair. I wish I could dye my hair blonde, but I’m asian so it’d just come out this weird brassy color that I’m not a fan of.

My natural hair colour is medium/light brown. I have had platinum blonde hair to black hair and everything in between. For my skin colouring, dark hair looks best and I get the most attention when it is dark. My fiance told me he kind of liked blondes before he met me, but now he loooooves my hair dark.
I, personally love blonde hair and really want to colour it again. But it looks bad on me!

In evolutionary terms, there is a correlation between blondeness and youth (lots of people have lighter hair as children, and it darkens over time) so, on a population-wide level, it makes sense that men express a preference for blondes as potential sex partners (because youth correlates positively with potential fertility).
On an individual basis, though, all of those general trends go out the window. An individual can fall anywhere under the bell curve and be influenced by all sorts of factors. For instance, men often subconsciously find women attractive who somehow remind them of your mothers. So if your partner’s mom is/was a brunette, there’s a good chance he will prefer brunettes. My guy is vocal about brunettes always having been “his type.”

I think Fiance has mainly dated brunettes/red heads but I’m a dark blonde…not sure what he prefers, but if his track record is any indication it would be brunettes.

My husband dosn’t care BUT I was the only blonde he dated. His track record had been brunettes.
