      Hi, Black and Red is a popular combination, both Black and Red are attractive colors that combine well together. The Black makes the Red more prominent, making it grab your attention.

      I would say you have a particular sensitivity to color, abstract art and aesthetics in general. Also you like the balance between a need for privacy that Black provides, and energy which Red provides.

    Black is my lifestyle! Literally EVERY price of clothing in my closet, my room is painted black, my bedding, I dye my hair black, my nails always painted black, my truck I had painted black and even a custom license plate to show off my love of black! My grandmother only wore black as well, so I grew up around it, and wore black even as a child. Thanks grandma! Black makes me HAPPY, I feel protected, safe, pretty, I feel classy and put together. I’m a makeup artist, and I love experimenting with different lipstick colors with my all black canvas. Everyone knows me as the girl who wears only black, and I couldn’t be more proud. It’s more than just a color to me, it’s a part of who I am. β™₯

      ‘Melanophilia’ is (supposedly) the expression you’re looking for. But be honest to yourself. Would you like any such labels to stick to your personality?
