silver also means I lost the mojo. I still want to have the mojo to pick up the ladies.

I am seriously considering dyeing my hair.

In my experience, there are ladies out there who dig grey hair on guys. I have a story but i'll save that for a private forum ;-)

But if you are going the dye route, do not do it yourself. Go to a salon and get it professionally done. Makes all the difference in the world. Besides, once you understand what it takes to dye your hair, then you can do it on your own.

Last thing you want is dye on your face that won't come off... or blindness... or worse - purple hair!!!!

Talk to the experts, watch what they do, ask questions, and learn. Thats what this forum is all about.

IMHO, you never get a second chance to make a first impression (i heard that somewhere) - but there's a lot more to a first impression than grey hair, eh ladies?

I have seen more than one silver haired sugar daddy with some real hotties on their arms. Silver ain't bad...

No indeed.

Each grey hair is a badge of honor. I've finally become a Silverback (face?) of the species.

Visable proof that I'm old enough to have outlived an ever increasing number of my enemies.

Besides, my beloved wife says it makes me look sexy cool

I used to get bummed out at the sight of a gray hair... now I am thrilled because after all it is a hair!

There are no blatant clear-cuts mind you... its more of a managed thinning of the woods.
If people concentrated on the really important things in life... there'd be a shortage of kid's fishing poles.

Do ladies appreciate a man with grey/silver hair?
Do ladies think grey hair gives a man more character?

Nope. Now if someone made some real wrinkle remover and chin lifts that you could use without pain, I would be in for that and then maybe consider getting rid of the grey.
Since I worked hard to get the grey and there are no miracle products around for the other aging afflictions, I will keep the grey, take it or leave it world!

It won't be too long before I trade in the shampoo for turtle wax. So for the time I have left with my beloved hair, I'll enjoy the grey.

Regarding the hair dye question....No, not on purpose.

At the risk of sounding sexist, here is my wife-approved answer to your latest question:

In my limited experience, here are the qualities that I believe women appreciate in men:

1. Money and/or the ability to make money. The more the better.
2. Self confidence...which usually leads to #1.
3. Good listener. Even when it's torture.
4. No crying, whining or complaining....see #2
5. Groom and clean-up the looks you were given. Be less concerned about your own looks than the women in your life cares about her own looks.
6. Good sense of humor.

7. Grey hair, by itself, does not give a man more character. More character gives a man more character.

8. More money can be substituted and make up for any deficiencies in items 2 through 7.
