Caught The First Red Alert Early In The Relationship

, , , , | Romantic | June 8, 2016

(My boyfriend takes me to meet his parents for the first time. We have been dating a while and live together.)

His Mother: *randomly* “Oh, [Boyfriend], what did you always say about dating a redhead?”

Boyfriend: “God, I’d NEVER EVER date one! They are so pale and covered in gross freckles!”

(His mother, father, younger brother, older brother, and older sister are staring at me, since I am a natural redhead, super pale, and covered in freckles.)

Me: “So, just like me?”

Boyfriend: “No, you aren’t a redhead. You’re blond!”

Me: “No, I am not blond. I have bright red hair.”

His Mother: “She’s definitely a redhead.”

Boyfriend: “No, it’s blond, almost a strawberry blond!”

(We’ve now been together for almost ten years and he even has a redhead daughter now, but don’t worry. At our first ultrasound, he asked the tech, “Please tell me she doesn’t have red hair!” Not sure that’s how that works.)
