Because, believe it or not, I found a LOT of problem being single when I was back in the UK. I'm tall and fairly good looking, but I have red hair and the stigma of sleeping with a 'ginga' actually left me out in the cold! I had one girl who kept our relationship a secret because her friends would make fun of her - and described my hair as 'reddish brown' or 'auburn' to her parents so they wouldn't know I was the dreaded 'ginger.'
American girls are FAR more evolved, I'm pleased to report (except the jury's out on the Bloggess until she answers the question!) I had no problem dating when I moved to America and girls said my ginger hair was cute and made me look boyish.
When I moved back to England, I was featured in a British TV show called 'F**k off, I'm Ginger' and it showed pictures of my American wife - and in TV forums, they mentioned that she was ridiculously hot and, apparently, far more attractive than a 'ginger' like me deserved.
And gosh, look, unsurprisingly we would up back in America.
First off, gingers rock. Secondly, that you America for being considerably more evolved than many Brits.
