Don't go out sunbathing, please, it will make you age faster If you are in the sun, use sun block, but not the regular brand you buy at George's Grocer, or Walgreen's. Get UV Naturals. It's all natural (no synthetic chemicals and preservatives).

    Its not that I want to tan at all, I just like doing outdoor things in the summer like swimming, going to the beach etc. I'm highly allergic to sunscreen and even sunblock, a dermatologist said that it is contact dermatitis or something like that. I've tried everything, it all makes me get hives. Its hell. The only place I'd worry about getting sun is my face, because that can lead to quick aging, so I'll just have to wear a hat from now on, nobody likes doing that though.

    Maybe I could get a free sample of it online to see if it works, thanks!

    Actually, it may even be more common in women. One of the reasons blonde hair has historically held such a strong sexual appeal is the connotation of youth it gives.

    Many, or even perhaps most, blonde women will see their hair darken somewhat after they've had children. It's a hormonal interaction. This isn't always the case, but as far as explaining why many blonde women become light brown, or sometimes even a darker brown as they age is largely due to having children.

    My hair was a rich, medium golden blonde....then.....I had my daughter at age 19. It darkened somewhat to a dark golden blonde...and the reddish undertones came back. My father, on the other hand, remained a super pale-blond his entire life

    And that's why there's HAIR DYE! Better living through chemistry people. Heh heh

    PS: Once, when I worked as a phlebotomist at a plasma center, I had this black dude tell me I was *way too pale and needed a tan* Of course, I got a little miffed by this....so my retort was....."Well fine....Let me borrow some of YOURS!"

    It was a witty comeback....and not insulting in any way. He just shut up after that one lol

    I really hate the disgusting rednecks up here, I don't care if they have some Germanic genes, they have an inferior culture. They're such retards; they tan until they look black and if they don't they whine constantly about how white and gross they are. I would never ever bastardize my genes by mating with one of them, they have irreversible genetic psychological problems from their culture and history. Of course, this is not an attack on southern people at all, but the appalachian people and other specific types of southerners do have an inferior and degenerate culture IMO.
    In your profile, you say you're partly non-Germanic, so what are you then? You ARE another type of White, with admitted self-loathing. The question is if you really love your Germanic side or not. This isn't a problem for most Scots-Irish and German folks out here, as representative of Germanic heritage. As one with more English roots from near the coast, tidewater and foothills, I may not be part of the exact same crowd and yet, bluegrass and country music stations play on my stereo maybe 1/3 of the time, another 1/3 is hard rock and heavy metal, the last 1/3 more of an assortment of folk, classical, pop and dance. I'm easy to mix and mingle with the common folk whenever I damn well please, but will never hold such Yuppie suburbanite biases like you.

    Aren't you playing into the stereotypes holding yourself back? Who are you to go after Appalachian folk, if you live here? There are enough cousin marriages to joke about incest, but you're trying to mix that up with racial tragedies--how adorable! Italians in the cities don't fit in, so why don't you? You just don't belong here as an outsider, which is funny, because I've got both blood and marital relations in Appalachia despite not raised here and they just may be the ace in the hole for me. You need to go back wherever you come from, blonde or not. Go hang out with Ashley Judd and George Clooney.

    It's not rare in the South to see pale blonde, blue-eyed ladies. There are a fair number of dye jobs, but that's only because they wish to look like you. To be honest, I prefer natural platinum, honey and strawberry blondes over any faker, but wouldn't put up with your attitude one second. I'd even rather spend time with a brunette happy with her natural looks than a self-hating blonde like you, but still find gingers more worthwhile regardless than either. B)

    Are you trying to engage with a user who hasn't logged in for over 9 years? I mean, I know there is more water in the desert than single women here, but trying to resurrect a corpse seems like a waste of time.

    Just incentive for her or anyone else to return, if they're reading old threads whilst not logged in. That was enough for me to do the same in times past, about anywhere online. It's also a thread bump.
