It reminds me of the cast of Jersey Shore. I loved it when my husband used to have guages but even those have mostly gone out of style in a lot of ways. I personally can't stand diamond earrings on a man. It just seems like a dead giveaway that he would constantly be taking shirtless duckface selfies in a public bathroom, and yeah, that's kind of tacky.

I've always thought ear rings on men look ridiculous. Were I to ever wear ear rings, I would never get past the thought about how silly I look. There are lots of ways to be confident or to gain confidence, but wearing ear rings isn't one them.

FWIW . . .
The right ear. So the police wouldn't see it during a traffic stop. That's what I've always heard.

A good mnemonic anyway.

Do it!

I'm 37 and have both mine pierced, and I don't wear them much these days, but I still do on occasion if its an appropriate ocassion (either just the left ear or both).

The solution to a lot of the issues that deal with the miscommunication and misunderstanding between the sexes is for men to be a peacock.

"Peacocking" a good solution to a lot of the problems that we're dealing with today (you know with politicians/celebrities sexually harassing). (Don't get me wrong I know appropriate from non appropriate behavior, but with so much grey area, its best to resort to a different strategy between the sexes).

Dressing in a way/wearing something that makes a statement and that draws a little attention, so that women will compliment you is a great solution to the kinds of things going on. The key is not to go overboard, just a TOUCH!

The way I look at it, provided they are single, when the compliment you, they invited you into their space and have given you permission to flirt, ask them out, etc.

I personally don’t like it when men wear any jewelry except maybe a wedding ring. To me its feminine. Just my honest opinion!

Not too long ago I was in line at a store with my young daughter and the guy in front of us had an earring in and my daughter said “ Mommy, why is that boy wearing earrings? He’s not a girl”! I was a little embarrassed and told her sometimes boys wear earrings too and she just looked at me with this confused look on her face.

^This makes no sense. If you understand that your "opinion" isn't based on anything legitimate, is that not grounds for changing said opinion? The response you should've given your daughter is that "earrings aren't just for females".

My response to my young child was "boys wear earrings too", which is correct. I have no problem with men wearing jewelry, but IMO I don't like earrings on them. Personally I don't feel earrings are manly.

Except it is true. There's evidence of men wearing earrings that dates all the way back to ancient times. An opinion means nothing if it's simply wrong.

Exactly!

Funny, in the animal kingdom, of which humans are a part, the male of the species is clearly the most ornate. LOL. I’m always amazed at how little boys have the most beautiful, long eyelashes. We women would kill for those!

Wearing earrings? Pffft. It’s a personal preference. Harmless. What’s the big deal? Don’t like them? Don’t wear them!

BTW, Mr. Clean wears an earring. Very ‘manly’. LOL
