hey i'm someone with wishful thinking that the old sterotype that guys like blue and girls like pink is not necesarily true....thus my question...what's your fave colour and why?..what does it remind you of?..and can you match your fave colour to an emotion?...like for example you can say red is an angry/passionate/fiery colour..and blue is a calm/peaceful/cool colour..etc etc...get what i mean?

I like red, black, purple, blue, and pink. I love all shades of these colors... but I find myself looking better in darker colors! So i basically wear red, black, and blue.

and i forgot to add....but this is not about what colours you wanna wear, but what you LIKE and what makes u feel at peace or enegrgised or whatever and why it does that...not what colour you look good in..and liking a colour simply because you look good in it was not the question..hehe

Brat, it's okay, really. This question isn't very common in comparison to some of the other ones we get. Welcome to the boards!

My fav color is orange. When I see it, it brings energy, happiness, and uniqueness to me.

I love to wear it too.

I love bright colors, they make me feel more upbeat!

My favorite colors are pink and green.

Pink, it's so feminine, and I just love feminine stuff.

Green..I don't know, it's bold, and sort of retro-ish, at least in my mind (I love the 80's!). Makes me have lots of energy.

For colors i like to wear, light blue and burgundyish or dark purples. they look really good with my complexion and long long dark brown curly hair, I dunno.

I like red and purple. Both in the darkest shades you can imagine If I'm wearing something in those colours I always team it up with jeans or something lighter so I don't look too goth hehehe

I also like white a lot, but not for clothes... it's a clean, fresh, pure, relaxing colour, and it can be vibrant at the same time, because it reflects light

My room is done on a checked pattern of light shades of pink and green though. Although those are not my favourite colours they go very well with the wood colour and are calm and relaxing too without being too boring

I like pastels ... most of them. Any of them

I really like blue ... it symbolizes love, happiness, emotions, compassion ...

And white ... it symbolizes purity, kindness, refreshingness (is that a word? lol), honesty and calmness

i love really deep shades of red and purple and blue. but my favourite colour (well shade) has got to be black, i know that is really stereotypically goth, but i can't help it, i just love it! sitting in my room with candles everywhere and everything about me in red and black, it just cools me down after a fight, or puts me in a good mood for a party, it makes me feel sexy when it's all dark and morbid. this sounds like a really bad anne rice book doesn't it? vittorio here i come!

Dark blue ~ It has that sort of bravery feeling and it represents peace, dignity, and confidence.

Baby blue ~ It gives off that sort of friendly, natural, peaceful, quiet, innocent feel. I think baby/light blue represent innocence.

Turquoise ~ Turquoise I think also represents confidence. Turquoise is a color that can be set for any mood, but mostly cheery moods and happiness. I love this color most of all because it's just beautiful and bright.

Black: I lean more towards dark colors and, this being the darkest of them all, it is very peaceful and soothing to me.

Purple: To me, purple is more passionate than red. It also calms me down and fits my mood when I am excited.

Silver: Seeing this color makes me happy. Plus, I dislike gold, so all of my jewlery is silver.

My fave colors are

Yellow: it's so happy and makes me think of spring (one of my fave seasons) and SUNSHINE! my friends and i have an inside joke about sunshine...

Red: It's bright and loud sometimes, but can be soothing and quiet at other times. just like me.

Blue: reminds me of the sky! Man, would you take a look at that sky, talk about blue!!
