i'm not so much about being told that someone is
a "dork." i like dorks that are clearly dorky on
their own, minus the name tag. but, i'm also more
into genuine dorks than trendy dorks. does that
make sense? there are people who just try way
too hard to seem uncool.

It's true. Shoes say a lot.

Sometimes i feel bad though that i take notice of
such a superficial "trait." i mean, shoes are a
product... i just worry that i'm buying into the
idea that we are what we own. i don't want that.

"trendy dork" is oxymoronic, at least for me, but it is possible to revel in one's own, genuine dorkiness. that's is one thing that's so great about bein in my 30's, is not havin to worry about bein "cool" anymore.

for instance, in my 20's i noticed shoes a lot more than i do now.

funny shoe story-a chick that I worked w/ when I was in high school, she was older, had fallen in love with a man one night because he was wearing the most beautiful, well-cared for boots, like ostrich or somesuch. he turned out to be an abusive drunkard, and she eventually learned he had borrowed the boots from a friend that night

I go for the redheads as well. I dont know why. And FRECKLES. Egads, if they have freckles.....
But since the world isn't swarming with redheads, I usually will go pretty crazy over a guy with a nice smile. ESPECIALLY if he has what I like to call a curly smile. This means that they smile slooooowwwlllyy and their lips curl upwards in a very sexy way.....wow. I think thats a "you had to be there" type thing.
But on the non-physical side of the coin, I tend to be attracted to people who make me laugh and who seem comfortable with themselves.
Hoping it will rub off on me, no doubt.

I like strong, square jawlines.

I say this a lot and so rarely get me too'ed on it. Which means, of course, more strong, square jawlines for me.

Also: I love men named Heather.

Oh Stephanie. You keep catching me with my pants down! Yes, I am hopelessly attracted to John because he has the red hair and the glasses but my point is that I find redheads attractive in general. I want to date this redhead at my work named Chad for example. John isn't the only male with red hair in the world! A sense of humor though is vital. How can anybody date a person that crosses their arms and never smiles all the time? I have never understood that. I can't believe I forgot to mention that before.

Tall. I like tall. Dark hair is good. Being a redhead, I tend not to go for other redheads. Not sure if this is a balance-out-the-gene-pool instinct. Brown eyes also work. Nerds are lovely, yep, but it's so easy for anyone to "nerd-up" for the purpose of impressing the ladies. You have to keep an eye out for _true_ nerd, because there are many faux nerds out there, duping the public.

Exactly!

i was thinking, maybe "hipsters" are really people
working very hard to seem trendy-dorky.

It's like being sexy-ugly.

take it from someone who has been dyeing (sp?) their hair with assorted shades of henna red for 16 years now: auburn is pretty red, actually

we have a word for it in Dutch (pay attention, Joseph), which is rossig. The dictionary translates it as reddish or sandy. I never thought of John's hair as such, but if someone else does and likes it, fine by me.

I cannot believe I am actually taking part in a discussion about John's hair colour, but this is strange world we live in.

John Roderick does not have red hair. Not even close. He has dishwater blonde hair. He was a toe head until he was about seven or eight and the ash blonde color darkened over the years. But...you're in luck...George Bush definately has red hair.

Tow is an old (14th century) word for flax. People whose hair resembles flax--light colored and tousled--are tow-headed. The term dates to the 19th century
