Go to areas that have a large German/Scandinavian population. Those will have a higher percentage of naturally light-blond people. I have a good friend who has that very pale blond look and she is from Texas and is of German descent.

I'm blonde, albeit a darker golden blonde. I imagine that you are talking about a more stereotypically Scandinavian white-blonde.
Yeah. Mine is more golden. But it gets darker after being washed

I read online that only 2% of people in the world are natural blonde in adulthood. I don't know, everyone wants me to shut up if I ever bring it up. As if I don't have a right to my own opinion about genetics. I am also kind of sensitive to blonde jokes. This whole thing is just because it happens to be a hair color preference in a mate. I wish they would beef up in numbers, especially in places like the US. I don't want to have to move just to find a mate with a preferred natural hair color. That's just not practical.

I don't want them to ever go away anymore than they already have. I am especially talking about a more lightish blonde in adulthood. Please don't make the dumb blonde jokes, scream "pedophile" or "nazi" because I can't take it anymore. Why don't people just accept what I say is genetic fact at face value?

And if you think another section is better, move this post.
Two percent of seven billion is still in the neighborhood of 140 million people. I can see how it would be tough to find that special someone with such staggeringly sparse figures.

Also, if this is something you typically bring up and perseverate on to the point where people are actually telling you they wish you would shut up about it when you bring it up, maybe you are coming across as obsessive versus simply having a preference.

Are people really screaming "pedophile" and "Nazi" at you, to the point where you "can't take it anymore," simply because you happen to have a mild preference for blonde hair?

And what "genetic fact" are you claiming? I'd be careful with assuming things you read online are necessarily factual.

IIRC, blonde hair color is a recessive gene, so it makes sense they're getting harder to find.

I hope then that the OP is also a blonde if he is worried about the diminishment of the blonde gene so as not to contribute himself to the future demise of natural blondes.

If you are not a blonde yourself and likely not to produce blonde daughters thereby causing the problem you are anguishing about, what difference could it make to you if a woman is a natural blonde or a dyed blonde?

To follow through the same line of thinking you may find a natural blonde with the same worries as you who may reject you because you aren't blonde and risk losing this in her offspring.
