Well! You certainly have a lot of opinions from fans of grey hair!
I care about physicality so hair AND eye colour do have an distinct
effect on me. My parents had grey hair by their fifties. Anytime I have
seen a man with grey hair I am reminded of my Dad or Grandad!
Just can't do it, even though I am in my fifties now myself.

You are a good looking guy with very magnetic and interesting work.
If that isn't netting you the woman you would like to be with ... experiment.
Try the temporary colour(not black and leave some of your sideburns and hairline
and a few strands elsewhere untouched so it looks natural) as some have suggested and see what, if anything,
is different for you that way. Grow it out if you can't live with it or don't feel it's worth the hassle.

I like it (on you)... especially since your face is so youthful. But I think you might look good with darker hair too. In the end it's up to you I think. Try some temporary dye and take some pictures! See what you think and then wash it out. I'm the kind of girl who's always changing my hair color. Currently I'm a red head. I've had blonde, brunette and even black hair! I don't take hair too seriously, it should be fun.

I can see the Johnny Depp resemblance too!

When you look like JD, it really doesn't matter WHAT color your hair is!

OK here's a dirty little secret. I dye my hair. It only goes grey on my temples, and has been slowly going grey since I was about 24. For the longest time I just left it. I had 2 stepkids, and I always pointed to one side and said "This is from Jamie" Pointed to the other side and said "And this is from Shane"

If I don't dye it, I look like the guy from Fantastic 4, whatever his name is. Dr. Reed or whatever. I look around and EVERYONE dyes their hair, so I thought screw it, and went for it. I get it done every 4 weeks. I dunno, I like it, it works for me. Without it, it's kinda salt and pepper on the sides, but I prefer it all dark!


Like I said EVERYONE dyes their hair, I'm not sure when I'll stop. 50 maybe, once it's TOO obvious.

Your hair and face are amazing why change a good thing...made me want to call my incredibly beautiful, creative and smart friend in toronto to tell her to check your profile out...seriously tho if i started going grey i might be tempted to color but its a personal choice ...i used to see this incredibly gorgeous woman that would dress in well cut usually dark clothes and had waist length grey and silver hair, blue eyes and high cheekbones, her legs were long and the l affect was enough to make me slobber . She had this etheral out of this world exotic beauty about her...would the affect have been the same if she had mousy brown hair who knows but 15 years later i still remember her : )

I don't care how grey I get, as long I have my hair. So far, so good.

I don't think I would care if a woman has grey hair. From time to time I see these commericals with female models with white or silver hair, and I find myself thinking how strikingly beautiful they are!

I think grey hair looks distinguished, but I think its easier to women cause we dye our hair all the time.

Would you rather it turn grey or turn loose? - lol.

I think women are more conscience of it . i am 56 with long blond hair down past my shoulders with grey streaks . i have been commented on my hair more with the streaks than before i had them. I am just happy that i still have all my hair.I mean, some people actually pay to have streaks in their hair.

I used to have a gray streak in the front of my head that I thought looked cool, but I was 30 years old. When the rest of my head started going gray (it happens over night, doesn't it?!?) I decided to dye it. I like gray hair on a man though, any hair's good if it's clean and nice. Of course bald men are hot too.... very sexy. One word of caution: once you dye gray hair, you have to keep it up! One day I'll chuck it all and go "Jamie Lee Curtis"... just wear it totally gray. Until then, I have to go buy some #20 developer...

My former pastor had a head of completely white hair bythe time he was 23. My brother was almost entierly bald by 30. I have some grey creeping in, but all in all I can't complain. And honestly I don't care either way what others think of it. You can't stop nature from doing what it has been commanded to do.

I'm extremely attracted / interested in men with gray hair! Doesn't necessarily mean my interest will hold however ~ I'm intriqued with the fact that he's comfortable in his own skin and has choosen to embrace age (gracefully).. very sexy!

I color my hair but I'm not fanatical about it. The last time I colored my hair I insisted my stylist leave some gray... it's who I am, naturally. The coloring is a compliment to my existing color (very close shade). Same philosphy when I apply make-up.

Don't let those "just for men" ads get to you. I'm right there with you in that my hair will be white before long. I tell people that I had brown hair when I was younger, and now I'm getting a chance to go blonde.

I've had white hair since I was 16. I get it done but it really is cool cuz I got a Lilly Munster streak that starts where my hair line begins and most people think it is somewhat of a birthmark. My nephew has had white hair mixed into his red hair since he was 3 and he is 30 now.

If it bothers you, dye it. It is just a hassle because white hair is really hard to dye.

If you do not like a men with gray hair, why not look somewhere else.
I am 42, and I have more gray hair than black one, and I will not dye my hair for any reason, and I think that those that do (men or women) are just pretending something and are a shame of what they really look like
BTW I make Frankenstein look like Miss Universe

Just discovered my one strand of grey hair. Faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaark.....the timing is bloody impeccable...just about to turn 40 next month! I am now checking down there, and I'm pulling it to prevent contamination.

I love grey hair and find the "acceptance" of it very attractive. I say leave it OP, as you wear it well! Of course I am biased, lol...however I did dye mine for many years. People occasionally tell me to color mine too and my response is that "grey IS a color".
