Everyone always says that blondes have more fun. Well, if they’re online and trying to date, then they do! In the cryptic world of online dating, it seems men prefer dating blondes. An online dating app, AYI.com decided to put this common myth to the test and analyzed over three million interactions from its current user base to see which hair colors singles prefer. The results were interesting
Blonde hair topped the list of male interest broken down by hair color, followed by brown hair, then black hair. Red/auburn hair comes in at number four, with blondes receiving 22 percent more interactions from men than redheads, and silver/white and grey hair appears to fall at the bottom of the list.
Here’s where the data became even more interesting. When the roles were reversed and AYI.com analyzed the top hair colors preferred by female users, they found that the hair color women preferred most was silver/white, followed closely by none other than grey and bald. So women love dating older men online? Hmmm….
The hair colors Brown, blonde and black, which many would expect to top the list, were actually the fourth, fifth and sixth preferred hair colors, respectively. Men with red/auburn hair received the least interest, with silver/white haired men receiving 56 percent more interactions from women than redheaded men.
So interpret the data as you may, but it appears that men prefer blondes and ladies prefer a silver fox.
