I think I've only dated one guy that didn't have his ears pierced. I like it but I also like the rock & roller or biker look, so I don't know about it being on a suit & tie kinda guy. If they wear earrings, I like both ears and small hoops as theimporterswife had said.

I'm not in my 20's or 30's but in my late 40's.
I love it when a guy has one stud or earring in his ear.
I don't like the big holes in the ears at all.

I'm in my late forties also.

Earrings on men only look good on "creative types" (artists, musicians, dirtbike riders, tattoo artists, etc).

But if you're a blue collar guy, (say, like a plumber) or just a regular joe with Dockers and a button up shirt, then any earring looks kind of ridiculous.

You have to have a certain kind of career and lifestyle to pull the earring off.

When I worked at the courthouse, I saw plenty of the "big holes" in the young guys' ears. If one makes a good living not in the corporate world, then I say, go for it.

What's your opinion about guys wearing earrings.

Now, I'm not talking about the huge dangling body piercing style earrings or the gigantic diamonds rappers wear.

I'm just talking about a small hoop or stud in the left (or both) ears.

Some say, some guys look good wearing one. Others don't

What kind of guys look good in an earing? What kind of look (hair styles/clothing) do you think go well with one?

Just looking for opinions here.
you seem to like it, no? i would do what you like.
don't wear it to the job interview assuming you like to work.

Only if he is large, muscular, masculine and healthy looking. Otherwise, looks like a "girley man".

[quote=Fiddlekitten;1956046]I think some guys look good with earrings. I think some don't.
Agree - depends on the guy.

I'm not too fond of it, but it's not a deal breaker for me. I would sure take him with his big ole studs

Yuk. Can't stand earrings on men. Of any kind at all. I think a lot of guys are getting too "femmy". I don't like men wearing jewelry, or styling their hair, either. I don't mean like using gel and a comb to keep it tidy, that's fine, but going to the salon to have it styled and highlighted and straightened and all that stuff. That's not what men do, at least in my book. I'm kinda old school when it comes to how people dress and present themselves. When I see a guy and he looks all "done up" with the fake hair, fake tan, earrings, etc. I have a really hard time taking him seriously. He comes across as someone who is insecure and a follower, not a strong, confidant, leader type of guy that women do find attractive. Actually this goes for women, too... when they are all fake'n'bake looking with chemical-treated verything and they look so unnatural, my immediate response is to not trust them or anything they do or say. They might be nice, and I'll be nice back to them, but I have a hard time accepting them as genuine people because of the disguise they wear.

If a guy wants to prove that he's in touch with his feminine side, he doesn't need an earring to show it. He can show it by helping out with the cooking and cleaning and raising of the babies.
