Red Onion Woes?

So many recipes call for red onions but each time I use one it is so strong that I regret it. I love onions generally and I like the added color of the red onion. I just used one and put the remaining half in a closed plastic bag in my produce drawer. I opened the fridge to the overwhelming smell of onion and even the apples in the same drawer now smell of onion! Is this the common experience with red onions?
