A conversation from when we were dating. I seriously thought he'd say he liked redheads, so it made me insecure when he said brunettes. When I expressed that insecurity? No backpedaling, no panic, just this simple reassurance.
It ... just blew me away. Especially the fact that it wasn't a line. He never says something because it's what I want to hear. He's just himself. I love that about him. It's a big part of why I love him. I know I'm not going to get manipulated or humored or given the run-around. I'll just get Alex.
Beth: Do you prefer brown, blonde, or red hair on girls?
Beth: You... don't like redheads?
Alex: Not particularly.
Alex: I like redhead. Singular.
