By the time a man hits 50 nature says enough is enough with all the nagging for his spouse. So nature grows men a pair of earmuffs aka ear hair.

That's funny henry! Your masseuse wouldn't like my client Eric then. He's not into the "happy ending massage" as they call it, but he does have wandering hands, from what I infer from his tales. He always goes for what he calls the "Dipstick test" (he paints such a lovely image) during his afternoon wanderings in China town.

I've never even been propositioned in a massage parlor - I guess it's because I go to actual licensed therapists unlike Eric.

The thing that I find the most attractive is a good attitude. One that shows a true inner confidence and sense of peace with oneself. By 50 a man who has truly tried to live a full and honorable life this comes fairly easy, imo. It can be seen in the smile, eyes and mannerisms. Not being uptight, judgmental or opinionated. Take care of the body, embrace your own style, and appreciate the woman in your life.

Nothing sexier.

By the way, to the 30 year old who felt the need to educate all the "kemosabes" -- maybe by age 70 you will get it. For 30, I would have to say you are a little on the slow side.

If you will only wear shirts that are not tucked in... this DOES NOT fool anyone into thinking that you do not have a pot belly.

And I'd like to take this opportunity to talk to old men (about 70+). They start getting an old man smell, which I have pinpointed as dirty hair and dry cleaning fluid.

Another thing (I like men that look lik men, you know) -i like men with big hands, big muscles and so on. He never went to a gym, but instead went on some diets that made him look like a froggie with big belly and skinny arms and legs...
I agree with you that I do not like the concept of "manscaping." While I am clean shaven on my face, I would never shave or wax my body hair. I have some hair on the upper part of my chest, and I like it. It is manly and sexy.

What is really bizarre to me is men who shave their pubic hair. Maybe if you are a porn star I could understand. But why would an adult man want to look like a pre-pubescent boy?

I heard a comedian recently doing a bit about how when his generation (he was probably mid 30s) will be very different when they're old from old people today. For instance, we're going to talk the same way we do today. We'll probably cuss more, say things "suck", call other men "dude", etc.

I started thinking about my own grandfather (in his 80s) and how I'll never dress like he does when I'm in my 80s. That's because old people dress more like they did when they were young. I'm not going to start wearing stretchy polyester pants, a short sleeved button down shirt, white loafers and an "old man hat" when I turn 70! I'll still wear jeans and t-shirts if I'm not dressed up for some reason. I'll also never grow a mustache because that's not something my generation has ever done.

I've been doing cardio/gym workouts for 20 years now and intend to keep it up until my body won't allow it, so I would imagine that in my 50s/60s, maybe 70s, I still won't be all out of shape with a big gut, disgusting legs and flat @ss.

And I have to say, the shaggy eyebrows just freak me out I don't know when that happens, but I'll take care of it

I agree with getting rid of the superfluous hair and hitting the gym. Not for just the middle-aged men. I've seen some younger ones start to resemble hairy pregnant women.

Also, if you are going to try to cover up the gray, use a color close to your natural hair color, or just forgo it altogether. And keep it trimmed. I saw a guy, with white hair, who looked like someone colored on the ends with a yellow highlighter. Not a good look.

Sorry for any repeats, but here are my suggestions:

No hiding baldness (bald is fine!)
No white tube socks with sandals
No scraggly grey-haired ponytails
No 1950’s pompadour hairstyles (honestly, I still see this!)
No sans-a-belt pants (also…no wearing pants above your natural waist!)
No long or dirty fingernails or toenails (if nails go beyond your finger or toe tips---too long!)
No ill-fitting dentures
No farmer overalls unless you’re working in the field (on a farm!)
No coffee breath (mints are cheap)
No cheap cologne (better off not wearing it if it’s cheap)
No pencil-thin mustaches or those waxed handle bar type (or mutton chops!)
No safari or photographer’s gear/clothes (unless you’re actually on a safari or a photographer)
No puka shell chokers
No overly tanned, leather-like skin
No unkempt sideburns (and don’t have them longer than your earlobes)
No mullets
Don’t try imitating “cool” aging celebrity looks (e.g. Rod Stewart, Mick Jagger)—few mid-age men can pull this off.

Any product recommendations?
