Those that consider it the standard can have all the blondes and blue-eyed women.


Dark hair, darker eyes (green, brown) for this guy.

This just happened to catch my eye in the title page. I don't think it is the standard. If you look at beauty magazines and TV commericals and fashion magazines you will see all color eyes and hair. I think it's a matter of preference of the individual.

I happen to think the combination of green eyes and very dark hair is very attractive. Or auburn hair and hazel eyes. No offense to anyone but to me blue eyed blondes are kind of blah and washed out looking .

You know what bugs me? I'm white with brown eyes - okay, really dark brown eyes, almost black, and I've never felt like I fit in with others of my race. It was worse growing up in the 70s and 80s. Back in kindergarten (70s), the teacher thought all the blue eyed kids (most of the class) were cute and was nice to them. The few of us who had brown eyes, she always singled out and treated unfairly and came up with excuses to make us stand in the corner. The blue eyed kids got to be themselves and never had to stand in the corner.

When I go back and see reruns of shows that used to be popular, it seems like everyone had blue eyes. 2 examples: I Dream of Jeannie and The Brady Bunch. It seems just crazy that every person on those 2 shows had blue eyes.

Also, when I've looked at women's magazines from the 70s, the white models only had blue and green eyes.

Why do people keep believing this? This might've been more the case 30 years ago, but not anymore.

Who said it is? It certainly is not my standard for beauty.

This is crazy. For most of my life I never paid attention to eye color. If you had asked me what color my parents eyes were, I wouldn't be able to tell you. I'm sure there are a lot of guys like me.

I would never imagine that something as trivial as a persons eye color would make them question who they were.
