A lad I was sort of seeing a while back who I am now friends with said to a group of us that he prefers brunettes and doesn't really like blondes. I am about as blond as you can naturally get. Was it his was of making it clear that he never really liked me and was he just being superficial or should I take this as a complement that he normally doesn't like blondes but he liked me? Just not sure why he brought it up while I was there or am I reading too much into it? Thanks.
The truth is that hair color is not that important factor.
I prefer blondes. I always have preferred blondes. But a hot girl is still a hot girl even if she got jet-black hair, and even that color can look amazing, as long as everything goes together.
I like girls of all hair colors and I don't turn a good girl down only because she doesn't fit to some of my preferences about which I don't feel that strongly about anyway, however despite of that all of my girlfriends have been blondes.
Hair color is somewhat an important factor for me because I am a sucker for petite brunettes and I can't stand blondes. But every now and then I'd get attracted to a blond just because I'd think she's extremely cute looking.
In other words, I think he's got the hots for you.
