What Color Is Love?

In August of 2015 I invited people to submit the texts they never sent to their first love including the color their first love makes them think of. I wanted to find out what color people see love in. Over a year later with over 30,000 submissions I feel that I am beginning to answer that question.

These numbers have left me with many new questions . . .

WHY?

Why is there such a huge disparity between the number of different colors?

Why does Light Blue have more submissions than Brown, Orange, Green, Purple, Light Pink, Light Orange COMBINED?

Why does Light Blue and Dark Blue have more submissions than the bottom 10 colors COMBINED?

Why do most people associate their first love with a hue of the color Blue?
