    Even I am wondering . Is it because they are soft in nature like the light colour.

    They subconsciously know pink is the color of their naughty bits.

    Pink makes people feel warm, comfortable and romantic. I suppose every girl enjoys being loved and protected.

    I think girls just like pink because thats how society decided it would be .

    girl = pink
    boy= blue

    If it would have been the opposite, im sure your wife would be buying blue!

    It's feminine and is too attractive for the girls.

    It is such a pretty feminine colour, very girlie.  It was also the 'in' colour for last season.  There seems a lot of purple in style now, so maybe she'll start buying purple/lilac?

    It sounds like you have a very feminine wife.  Pink is a colour which represents femininity, it starts from when we're born, cute little pink outfits, and as we grow up, pink lipstick and high-heels. You can feel proud to have such a feminine woman in your life.

    I guess it's because pink is one of the least "aggressive" while at the same time being "colorful." I would like to see a test done on babies to see if they prefer a certain color based on their gender. Other wise it is perhaps the result of social conditioning.

    Sorry to offend, but I don't like pink. Actually, it upsets my stomach to look at it - the lighter the pink, the worse it is for me.

      This is true. I have known a few girls that were much younger than their birth certificates.

    Have you seen lips, palm of newborn babies? It is soft, pink and attractive. Women like kids more than men, so they have some inclination towards pink color. Pink color is romantic too.

    Because unlike the harshness of red, or any other bold color, pink is soft. It reminds me of cotton candy. Light and fluffy, and girly. if your wife has a fair complexion, nothing goes with a pale womans skin tone like pink does, believe me, i should know! Pink is pretty, and wearing it, or having your purse or shoes pink makes you feel pretty. femanine.

      My wife had natural red hair and hated it. I loved her hair. As for fashion, she was always color coordinated. Always femanine

    Pink is the softest color. It gives us a comfort of feelings. Our eyes get relieved by this color. Girls and women by nature are very soft. So this pink color is the really representation of their character. But it is also not true that pink is the favorite color among all women and girls. There are many who don’t prefer this color. This is true this pink is hit among the females.

      You're right. I didn't mean to insinuate that 'all' women and girls love pink. Just a lot of them do.

    I'm a girl and I don't like the color pink. 

    Society has made the color pink stand for femininity.  It starts at infancy.  We dress our little girls in pick dresses and pick bows.  We teach them that pink stands for girls and blue stands for boys...then we wonder why girls like pink.

    Pink is just an attractive color for most women!  It stirs up our emotions and make us imagine every thing lovely!  Everything beautiful!  It lifts a womans mood!

    My best friend loves pink...pink shoes, pink toenail polish, pink wallet, pink clothes and even pink walls in her office with her pink rug and pink lamp.  It just makes her feel happy.  I guess its her feminine side coming out.  Its just her thing.  I know that I like wearing blue and green shirts.  It just makes me feel good!  We all feel powerful in some type of colors....just like Tiger Woods likes to wear red shirts on Sunday, Johnny Cash wore black, some women like pink!

      I like your answer, but I think Johnny Cash wore black as a symbol of his time in prison.

    Yes. All women, especially girls love the color pink including myself. Pink is the color of tender femininity and romance. Most women love to get stuffs in pink whatever it may be. It cools your temper and helps you stay calm and cool. It is said that, the prisons used to be painted in pink to help criminals reduce their violent nature. I have dedicated this hub for all those in love with the color pink! Check out hand picked gifts and stuffs all in pink! http://hubpages.com/hub/Pinkhandbagsandpursesforher
    Pink watches, lingerie, handbags, purses, guitar and what not!

      My wife didn't have a guitar, but she did have a pink household toolkit.
      I'll check out your hub when I get a chance.

    actually, I hate the color pink but I wear it because it is flattering to my complexion.  I have no idea why anyone would buy pink socks, etc.

    On the other hand, I like fuchsia...a deeper color of pink

    I think there may be 2 levels of explanation here. First, I think as human being’s we are designed to prefer certain colours generally because of the survival value that they represent to us. For example, the color green represents vegetation and blue water. These represent places to find food and to drink. Pink is a colour associated with healthy human bodies etc.

    Second, with a variety of colors to select from that are wired in as preferences, teaching and learning set in so that particular color preferences are learned and reinforced within a given cultural context. For instances, getting positive attention and other reinforcers are associated with displaying the color. Further, Pens and belts have their own natural and logical value, which is then paired with reinforced color preference.

    Because society has the power to make people like, prefer, and hate certain things.

      You may have a good point. At one time it was considered cool to smoke cigarettes. Now you have to hide to do it.

    Probably due to someone beginning the tradition some time ago because they liked and now mothers train girls from when they are babies to like it.
