My Redhead - dictionary fun contest

Rehearsing my lines with passion
And yearning for her affection
A redhead flame, I was keen to meet
Desiring a meaningful relationship
My inner soul would cherish the touch of her tender lips
And the taste of salt from a shared packet of chips
But each attempt to connect was a struggle
Like that of a soldier fighting another’s battle
The fear of scorn is courtship’s doom
But soldiering on might see love bloom
Despite the abomination of rejection, I was undeterred
Cupid’s bamboozle, I’d outwit and find my love

    Of course, as a redhead, i HAD to read this... You know, we as women, feel the fear that men will never be attracted to us--we don't think about the fear of rejection--for the one who takes the first step braves the fear of rejection.... thanks for the great peak into the male heart...

    Thank you but why? I neither landed the redhead (they don't exist here) nor are the results out and so I am a bit mystified.
