Do you like gray hair on others? Do you think it makes them look, as we often hear, more distinguished, wiser, more intelligent? Would you even go as far as to say that gray makes them (as some in the media like to say) hotter/sexier?

Or does it have the opposite effect on you and just remind you that they are someone that has now passed the peak of their physical prime and are on a different course in life?

p.s. this is not about hair care; it's about perception in this day and age.

Seriously?
You do realize most people get gray hair if they live long enough right?
One more label and "standard" that is silly and takes away more options for those who are trying to date.

I personally think all of the standards, requirements and silly questions show that someone has already passed their

"peak" in a good quality real life simply because they waste so much time and effort dwelling on something that cannot be changed without fake color being added.

Absolutely.... agree that most people will get gray sooner or later.... some sooner and some later. And hair coloring is a BIG business too.

Here's what prompted me to post this. See Reason #2:

Gray can look flattering, but there's no doubt that it's aging.

As for mean-spirited Clooney and his yucky teeth and gums, the gray hair is just another minus for me.

On men...it's great...on women, it's aging. Sexist? Yeah, but that's the way it is!

No, grey hair is a sign of old age and disease. Not attractive at all.

I may be in the minority of guys, but I don't really think gray hair makes a woman look necessarily more or less attractive. More mature, a little different, but... it's really only a hair color. Not a big deal to me either way.
