Please have a look on the scenario below:
We both loved each other. When we met each other for the second time, we both conveyed some messages through our looks and the way we stared at each other, we knew that we are somehow in love. But I don't ever forget; we both went red / blushed.
Does the choice between "go red" and the verb "blush" completely depend on personal preferences or are there any subtle nuances of their meanings? Which one would you go for in this context?
Although "blushing" sounds a bit girly to me, I don't see much difference between them at all. So I guess I can use them interchangeably nearly always.
