Curly hair and dating

My hair is often an unruly third wheel in the dating world.

For many years, I was resigned a belief that my curly locks meant I could never beg a guy to run his fingers through my hair.

Once I learned to straighten my tresses, I had to adapt to a two-hour primping routine that inevitably delayed many nights on the town.

The memories resurfaced when I found this DoubleX piece praising the possibility of a curly-haired heroine in a Pixar film.

Many people likely shrug their shoulders at the news.

But it's a major victory for curly-haired women who have grown accustomed to headlines like the Millionaire Matchmaker's assertion that curly hair probably won't do you any favors in the dating world.
