blonde or red, red or blonde


Hi Guys!
Im sitting here debating going red. Thats right......red. You know, fiery temper and all that. Actually, Im tired of doing my black (gray) roots. But I so enjoy being a blonde. I think as we age its always better to go lighter. But theres also something about a redhead!
What you guys been up to? I am still dating my next door neighbor....I never knew a man could be so nice. Im thinkin if I had met up with this man when I was young I would be a total spoiled brat by now. Of course my friend Janice says I am still a spoiled brat anyway!
I will call the new boyfriend Larry. Larry and I do dinner together everynight. We go out about 5 nights a week. I cook about 2. I made Swiss steak last night with all the sides. I didnt know , but it is his favorite meal!
When we go out he opens the doors for me! Imagine that! My Ex never paid any attention whether I got in the door or not. There are sooo many differences between him and my Ex. I just cant believe it. Larry is always interested in what I say and he and I can really get into a conversation. Of course we have always been friends. I mean for years and years we have talked over the backyard fence.
And I suddenly just thought about something....lol. I used to swim in my pool in my black panties and bra in the summer. Oh geeze....I know Larry seen me out there. Now Im kinda embarrassed. I guess Ill have to buy a bathing suit now! I just thought I was a regular old mermaid and never worried about anyone seeing me.
Also Larry has never tasted beer! I find that fascinating! ( esp after being married to an alcoholic!) Now every once in a while I do like to get with my friends and have some drinks and get crazy. I dont know yet whether I should do this by myself when Im with my friends or include Larry. Either way is good with me. Do you think I should ask him what he wants to do? All my girlfriends that are married are like..we have to double date together . My single friends are like..we never get to see you anymore! And me????? Im just havin fun. So what do ya think???? Red or Blonde?

If you've never gone red, you should try it at least once - you can always change it again!

As for inviting Larry or not...do what you feel! If it's something you want to include him in, ask. If you just want to be with your friends, go alone...but HAVE.FUN!

LauraJ said...

if youre havin' this much fun now as a brunette, imagine all the fun you'll have as a blond!!
I bet he was tickled to see you swimmin in your panties and bra! :D

Ol' Lady said...

I know this may sound strange but what about letting your hair go to it's natural colour?

Elween said...

of course not red!!! you look good in blonde.

then you better make sure Larry doesn't go near to alcohol!! :)

and one more time i say:: no red, please....

Nea said...

Well I was always Auburn until I started turning gray, now everyone says my hair looks blond, to me it just looks gray. Not white gray though. But if I were to dye my hair it would be RED. I love red. but not popsicle red, more of a auburn red for me. Let us see what you decide, :):)

I am very happy for you Catch. I think it is wonderful you are dating. He sounds to good to be true. But then I suppose there are some decent men around. I just always seemed to have a really hard time finding one. They are either drinkers, or lazy or both....haha

Should you ask him to go out with you?.......if he doesn't like to drink, maybe not......you would feel inhibited if you wanted to, and well, who knows it might work out fine, But I don't see anything wrong with a girls night out.....but really it is up to you, what do you want to do?

Remiman said...

Catch,
You're never to old to fall in love!
Blonde for me, but red is ok if you believe that a change is as good as a rest. ;)

Go Red, definitely - I did and I love it and so does MWM ((wink)). Why not ask Larry what he thinks - does he like redheads? It's so good to read about you and Larry and that you are obviously happy at last Catch. xxxx

MarmiteToasty said...

*Cough* over here we dont call it redhead we just call it GINGER lol....and ginger kids are picked on and made fun of, its like a national sport, just like kids with glasses and limps and big noses and teeth :)..... but, ginger oldies are different lmfao :) giggling.....

Now why did you have to call him bloody LARRY...... now I will think of him as a red lobster, so LARRY was the name of the lobster that I tried to say from me dinner plate in Maine back in the summer...... rolling me eyes.....

He sounds like a keeper, and I wouldnt worry to much about a one piece swimsuit cos Im sure he gonna be seeing more then what he already has LMFAO ;)

Hmmmmm, I'd try the red head look...if nothing else it will be interesting for you!!!

Dave said...

RED ! Go for it.

DIXIECHICK said...

Red..definitely..you are a spirited, fun woman.....so, try it, if you don't like it, you can always go back...as far as Larry goes...invite him along...just makes things more interesting.

Cindy said...

Red!

Dr.John said...

I vote red. If Larry doesn't drink and drinking was a problem for your ex than don't push Larry to start.

Miss 1999 said...

I say go for it! I've been a blonde, and a redhead-- and I must say, I'm totally loving my red hair now! :0)

Big Pissy said...

What Dixiechick said! :)

bettygram said...

I am so happy for you having Larry.I would ask Larry about the hair color change.

Kat said...

I was just debating going red myself! I mentioned it to Pap and he suddenly got this look like he was sucking on a lemon. So for me, back to blonde it is. Have you ever tried red before? Give it a go! You can always dye it back.

Nea said...

I catch, so what did you decide? Are you Red yet? haha

Cindy said...

We haven't heard from you in several days- does that mean he was crazy about your color choice and you've just been too busy?

Princess Extraordinaire said...

I am so happy for you - you totally deserveothave soeone who is so into you - you're an amazing woman! I woud ask Larry if he's up for a double date so he can get to know your friends and they can get to know him....maybe at your hose so he's cofortable...

Kat said...

I can't stand the suspense! So what's it gonna be, blonde or red????

Catch said...

haha...girls girls! I am red! I have pictures but I have been running way too much...will get them on soon...promise!

Pixie said...

I would go red myself if I had the bottle!

Great news about the new man in your life :)

eZ said...

hey catch
were you red once last year in a picture? I loved it!

Kat said...

Quit running! Post those pictures! (That sounds bossy, but it was intended in the sweetest possible way)

Akelamalu said...

Come on put the pictures up!

Queenie said...

I see you decided on red, do you have the saying over there "Red hair, no Knickers"? Not implying anything, just thinking about when you go swimming!!!!!! Larry sure is a lucky man.

Akelamalu said...

I'm going red again next week. Still waiting to see the piccies! Are you OK?

eZ said...

I am worried about you, please let us know you are ok!!
