The Under Appreciated Brown Eyed Girl

When you’re thinking about the perfect mate, you may think about facial structure, stature, hair color, or even cup size. But not everyone thinks about eye color. I do. The two things that I notice first on a girl are her teeth (refer to Quality vs. Quantity and the gang signs comment) and her eyes.


It seems like everyone is always crazy about the blue eyed blonde. And that’s all well and good, I’ve dated my fair share of blue eyed women. But it’s not my personal preference. Another big one is the green eyed ginger- an ever growing preference it seems. And I will agree, they’re most certainly cute (once you get past that ginger’s having no souls thing). But again, it’s not my preference.


A few days ago, I had lunch with a woman that I’ve known for years and have always been very interested in. I won’t go into detail (as I never do), except to say that we never became more than friends, but I’m hopeful that that can change. Anywho, as we’re sitting there having lunch, I couldn’t help but notice that she has some of the most beautiful eyes I’ve ever seen. They’re a light brown that contrasts against her pupils instead of blending with them and they just seemed to pop. I had to look away just to keep from staring. And in that moment it hit me- I love brown eyed women. I do. And that thought led to another; brown eyed women are under appreciated. As I said earlier, everyone wants the blue eyed blonde or the green eyed ginger… What about the brown eyed girls? Aside from the Van Morrison song and a semi popular Korean pop girl group, they’ve got nothing. Being the brown eye fan that I am, I say we should change that. Brown eyed girl appreciation day anyone?
