Hmm, last time I checked I was a girl... , but I dislike pink. I've been questioning my chromosomes on various occasions, though.

Default in the pink...

I like pink, especially rose and mauve and really most shades of it, but my favorite color is blue.

I adore pink. Soft shades mostly, but bright or deep pink for some things is great, too. Hot neon pink makes me draw the line at my age, but if I were 4, I think I'd love that, too.

I have more than a few pink sandals, shorts, pants, purses, wallets, lingeree, summery dresses, sweaters, lipstick, toenail polish. No, not worn all at once lest people think I'm a children's book character come to life. And, clothing doesn't all have to be solid pink or I'd look like a candy heart, but I do believe I must have been Hello Kitty in a past life.

Pink makes me feel very happy. Lifts my mood better than anything. Some choose chocolate, I choose pink. It seems like a harmless addiction...

Have fun... VV

As a child through young woman, I professed a dislike for pink.

Later on, around late 20's, I happily embraced it, especially pale pink, but I'll still throw on the occasional hot pink (but in smaller doses.)

Probably my favorite color of all is plum, especially if it is "dusty" or muted.

Interesting to read about the gender likes and dislikes.
We are decorating our new home, and have had a few differences of opinion.

I like pink (darker shades of pink spilling into maroon) only because i've been socialized to like it!! And there you have it. I'll admit it but I refuse to accept a biological explanation on that.

I have sooo many pink shirts, and shoes. I never really realized how many I have until now. But I always liked pink because it matched my skin tone best, lol.

I dont suit pink at all.. but like it on others.... maybe a darker shade but mostly choose darker colours.. black , olive, rich browns suit me better. although with a tan in summer some pinks look nice.

I am wondering, though, what exactly is a "redder shade of blue"?
