Guenevere Had...


I’m curious if people have more of an affinity for people of their own eye color. When I think back on the people I’ve dated during my life the majority had blue eyes, like me. I don’t know if that was just a roll of the dice or if I am drawn to blue eyed people.

I recently commented to someone about their blue eyes, and they seemed to take offense because their eyes were actually green. It was a call I made because I assumed they were blue. I knew they weren’t brown. Green eyes are hard to pick out on some people. They are kind of blue, and I’m not the type to stare into someone’s eyes for detail because I don't want to make anyone uncomfortable.

That’s an odd thing about green eyes. The color green is made from blue and yellow, yet I’ve never seen anyone with yellow eyes. Brown is made from red and yellow and one never sees red eyes. Blue is the only primary color in the human eye.

Elizabeth Taylor is said to have violet eyes. Albinos have what is considered as pink eyes, though the albinos I've known always wore sunglasses at all times.

I have to confess that my favorite eye color is a very light creamy blue. I only know a hand full of people who have that color, and I think all are women, though I don't often stare into the eyes of men. I always get weirded out when I come across a dog or a horse with blue eyes, but somehow it’s OK when a cat has blue eyes. Damn, this is a weird topic. Thanks for indulging me.

what really trips me out is the females who have one eye green and the other blue....met a couple of them down through the years...

As for eyes on girls/women, my preference has changed as I've aged..when I was young it was all about the baby blues...then the smokey greys and hazels...then the deep warm browns...and now fairhaired and green eyed ones really melt my wires.

Weird but interesting. I never thought about it before you mentioned the possible affinity thing, but (so far) I've always been attracted to men whose eye colour differs from mine.

My husband recently saw some item, either in TV or in the paper, saying that eventually blue eyes will become extinct. I've tried to google that information, to no avail. So I don't know how true it is.

I like dark eyes. It doesn't matter if they're blue it doesn't matter as long as they're dark.

Auntie, Weird? After some of the stuff you've written and you call this topic weird?

Nemo, ever the ladies man...

Beth, and your's would be?...

Loopy, nice tribute. Pretty cool how your eye has a different color coming in at the top. Welcome to Rust, Darlin.

Donna, this is true. I saw that report somewhere as well. Along with that will be blond and red hair. This melding of genetics may one day end racism, however I enjoy the diversity.

Denise, did Loopy take your eye? Really?

Weese, you are spoken for, stop looking ; )

Hint for guys who want to date Chantel, dark contact lenses. And don't forget the Aviator sun glasses

Those blue eyes you leave give me the creeps. Sela Ward has the perfect eyes.

Guy,

Interesting topic, indeed, and thanks for the bee info. Not ready for honeybees quite yet, with young grandkids around, but we did put up a mason bee box to attract them for pollination, if not honey.

I've added your blog to my favorites!

Cheers,

GG

brown, hazel or green eyes (because they aren't so common) usually do it for me. the pair of eyes i love the most belong to my ex, and his are blue. it's unusual for me, because i never much cared for blue eyes before i met him. great topic. i may have to steal. : )

Lori, what can I say...

GG I did a post on mason bees and bumble bees last week you might enjoy. I'll add you to my subscriptions as well.

Dalia, I don't see a blog associated with you, just a profile. Feel free to steal. Let me know if it goes anywhere for you.

I have yellow eyes! Mr. Guy, over here, pick me pick me! Okay, they're naturally a yellowy-hazel, but still. I gave up on my green contacts (too expensive), and I'm learning to love my natural color.

As for guys, well, I don't really care. My preference is for dark eyes, but I've liked blue-eyed people and heterochromatic people (two different colored eyes = heterochromia) as well.

SO! Mom has blue eyes, Dad has dark brown eyes, sis has greenish eyes, and I have yellowish eyes. WTF happened there?!

Two blue eyed parents can not produce a brown eyed child, however two brown eyed parents can produce a blue eyed child.

Weese always with the loop hole...

Jaggy, Yield sign yellow or a light brown yellow?

They're yellowish-brown. And they itch. Because I'm allergic to grass. Nevermind that I work in the grass seed industry. I can't wait for summer.

(Thanks for allowing me to whine!)

It may sound strange to say but I was just thinking about this the other day. I was curious to know what percentage of the world has brown eyes, since that is the majority (and my own color)... and what percentage has non-brown eyes, since blue/green are what I have always been attracted to.

So Jaggy, they are light brown...really.

Bayou, I can't answer your question, but here is some cool reading
