Happy Valentine's Day!
I was destined to fall in love with a dark haired man. My very first crush was on Johnny Gage, the brunette paramedic on the TV show "Emergency." My very first crush on a real boy was a boy named Mike. Mike was in 7th grade, three older than I, and had dark hair.
Every celebrity I've had a crush on has had dark hair. Well, except for James Spader back in the 80's, and really, you had to be made of stone not to have a little something for James Spader back in the 80's.
Most of the real life guys in my dating life had dark hair. Oh, and yes, I married a brunette. A tall, dark guy who just happened to fit the pattern perfectly.
This sort of thing carries over into reading. Every male character in every book I read is a brunette. My apologies to the authors of the books, but their physical descriptions mean little to me when it comes to hair color. Some of the biggest romantic literary figures pop to mind: Rhett Butler is a brunette, Mr. Rochester is a brunette, Mr. Darcy is a brunette. And of course, Heathcliff is a brunette. Thus, every hero has dark hair.
