Is red hair less attractive?

I'm a red haired boy (16 years young) and it seems like it's more difficult to get get a date than other guys with different colored hair.

If you are self-conscious about your red hair (which you seem to be), THAT may be what is putting the girls off. You are ill-at-ease, but they don't know about what. Get yourself a really good haircut (to reassure yourself about your hair), and before you approach a girl to ask her out or start a conversation, take a keep breath and remind yourself that your hair looks good and so do you.

No, that is just your own insecurity. Look at Prince Harry, you think he has any trouble getting dates? If you believe in yourself, you won't have problem.

My oldest son is of the same age and has flaming red hair. It is interesting watching the girls reaction as he walks pass. They get all glassy-eyed and say "Hi-i-i-i, Neeco!"

I have no idea where he got the nickname "Neeco," and he ain't sayin'. Near as I can tell, it does not have anything to do with Neeco Wafers.

You should know this: red hair originated with the Vikings who travelled along Scotland and Ireland and were very friendly, sometimes, and spread their red hair genes whenever possible. Wear your hair with pride. Be funny. Be warm. Be friends with girls first.

She did not mean they were "friends". She meant that they mated with the people they cane in contact with. The Vikings were a very lusty bunch.

Ynp is right. Vikings were 'friendly' in the reproductive sense.

Red hair is very attractive. Natural red hair has something that people pay hundreds of dollars at a time to try and achieve. My grandfather was a red head. He was very handsome.

Do you have freckles too? Yes? Then you have another extra thing that girls like.

You hair color is not what is stopping you from finding a date. It most likely is your attitude or demeanor. If you are uncomfortable/embarrassed by your hair color, it will show in the way you interact with others.

Embrace your luscious red locks and be confident. Be yourself but also be secure in yourself. Be the best you that you can be. Your hair does not define who you are.

....and remember what Taise answered here......red hair is a genetic trait passed down from the verile Vikings! Not everyone can say they have a Viking ancestor without showing genealogy paperwork. Your claim to Viking genes is right there on top of your head --- no papers required :0)

If my question came off as I'm embarrassed by my hair color, then my bad. I'm a great guy (in my non-arrogant opinion) and I still get shut down. It seems like the guys that are jerks to girls tend to date them more than the guys that are nice and treat them like gentlemen should.

Maybe you should ask a different Q. This Q states you blame it on your hair.

You also might try a different circle of people you hang around with. My husband is the nicest guy in the world. He pretty much had me at "hello". We just celebrated 25 years of marriage.
Before I was married I dated guys that were nice as pie and a couple of bad boys. The bad boys were obviously not looking for relationships.

There will be a girl out there for you. Just don't try so hard. Obviously I cannot see what you are doing, but I am sure it is not that bad. The best thing would be to get to know the girl a bit first before asking her out. I am of course assuming by "shut down" you mean they say no when you ask them out. I may be wrong. I was reading a Q a few months ago about a 13 yo old who when stating they were "dating" meant they were having sex.

For the shut down,you are correct, they would say no (I'm not thinking about sex yet, too young). Thank so much, this is very helpful. Happy 25 years!

It depends on the girl. Personally, I find red hair attractive, but it also depends on the shade.
