In the area I life in North Dakota and Minnesota we have a large Scandinavian population with large amount of
natural blondes. Overall, they are a very attractive race.

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.

Seems to me it's just not practical to base your entire search for a "mate" on hair color. You might want to expand your preferences to include some personality factors also.

Least his only happen in summer lol

My eyebrows are never seen. That comes in handy. I don't have to shave, because hair on my legs hair so light it can't be seen unless I wear dark leggings, where the hair sticks out of them.

Then the hair on my head becomes a dark golden after being washed. Then it apparently gets lighter again after a bit.

So hair is weird that way. Always interesting to hear, imo.

I'm 68 and have naturally blonde hair, golden blonde slowly going grey....
Our 2 sons had buttery blonde hair as children, now both, in their 40s,
have very dark brown.

How do you know they are on decline?
What percentage of the World population were they before?

My grandma, now 83, was a pale blonde until almost her seventies, and now it's snowy white. It's lovely.

The few bits of "tinsel" I have coming in are also white, so I'm hopeful I'll go the same way. It would be preferable to a dull, steely grey.

Very common, in some places dominant, in the Midwest due to Scandanavian & German heritage.

I see adults with really blond, mustard color natural hair. Not frequently but it has happened, to say that only children are blond is patently false. For many it darkens and for some it does not.

Why this issue "distresses" you?

LMAO! Yeah I agree red hair can be very nice, but then again I think it depends the person and how attractive you perceive them to be.

OP you certainly have your rights to express your views and I hope you find a romantic partner with blonde hair.
