I'm a middle aged guy, past 50, with graying hair at the temples and no longer a flat stomach. I always thought they should give us guys who reach 40 an instruction sheet on grooming that says:

-- Get rid of that EAR HAIR ... it's ugly!

-- Get rid of the NOSE HAIR too ... it's disgusting.

-- You know, it wouldn't hurt to trim those bushy EYEBROWS a little.

-- Make sure your barber or stylist razors off that fuzzy hair on the back of your neck.

Now I'm not a Metrosexual and not into that whole "manscaping" thing, but I do believe in being well groomed.

Any more suggestions for us middle aged guys?????

Hit the gym and get rid of that gut. I need to hit the gym harder. There is no law that says you must or may have a gut past 50.

Ear hair is indeed gross, I remember when it started on me and it was like finding a fungus growing. I did electrolysis till it was all gone.

Also did electrolysis on the back of the neck and back. Expensive, time consuming, and painful, but you do what you gotta do.

Hard to say if ear hair or back hair freaked me out worse. Whatever. They are gone, I nuked them.

Don't think you can wear the same waist size you did in your twenties if they are now pulled up to your boobs. LOL

A woman in your life didn't give you the instruction sheet? Shame, shame.

Take care of your finger and toe nails. Clipped and clean is all that is necessary for the average guy, manicure/pedicure and a buff for the high roller.

Please, if your waist has gone up a notch or 2 buy the right size belt and pants it will look better.
Do not be afraid to go bald it looks better then trying to hide it

Great suggestions! I do most of my husband's trimming except the nose and have a whole box of scissors/clippers for the job. Makes me feel like I am a gardener of sorts. The only thing is that I don't see so well as time goes on so if it looks like hair, I wack it off!

Take are of your skin. Wear moisturizer and use lotion. Soft skin is so much nice than rough skin.
