These are all from an American English dictionary... I'm English. I have a duty to dislike all American spellings of Her Majesty's English, just like it is my birthright to complain endlessly about the weather.
'Tis custom.


Now let's talk about your use of E in AGING


If HRH Queen Elizabeth were to discover that I had omitted the 'e' from ageing, like some sort of american, it is likely that I would be sent to the Tower of London. The E is right and proper.


all fun and games until you figure out your hair down there also goes Gray


I don't know how to feel anymore.

Grey hair is cool though, if you wear it right. I'm not sure I'm up for ageing though!


Gray is also correct spelling, just not British spelling. No need to correct anyone.




Not correcting anyone. Expressing my preference, since the OP used both spellings. Also, see above...

It's weird that you feel that way, grey hair is a sign of you losing your youth and vitality.

Furthermore, most men would not have a full head of grey hair anyway, most of us will have pattern baldness.

I'd be more excited if I wasn't already going bald (at 18 for cryin' out loud. I'm gonna look like a short Lex Luthor).
I guess I'll just have a gray beard and grey brows. Oh well.

I'll be bald by the time I'm twenty five. I hope I have a good shaped head for a bald guy. I always knew I would go bald. Even as a child I knew.
Goin' bald and haven't even hit the dating scene yet. Good grief.


It's unusual for people I know to be excited about silver hairs. As for going bald, both Yul Brenner and Telly Savalas became famous after shaving their heads for specific acting roles and ended up keeping that look for the rest of their lives. Both of them were considered quite manly men and even Queen Elizabeth is known to have been a huge fan of Telly Savalas as Kojak.

As for me, I have a place where a scar is just at the edge of my hair on my forehead where the hairs come in white. My ex husband used to tell me to leave it be, because he thought it made me look like Rogue from X-men.

Being blonde, I think my hair will probably shift right to white rather than gray.

I've been impatiently waiting for my hair to turn gray and then pure white.

So sad to hear this about you! Did you try to talk with the doctors about this problem? Maybe it won't be that bad till the time?
Personally I see nothing ugly and shameful in appearing of the grey hair It just happens, it's nature so what's bad at all about it? Besides it looks beautiful as for my tastes I think that the fact of aging and becoming old is really much more scaring
Anyway I also don't see anyrhing so awful in becoming totally bald I saw a lot of cool guys with such style, like on these pictures, and I think they're really attractive, especially when you have a nice beard
Also in my opinion being bald isn't an obstacle for the romantic relationships

My hair isn't going gray, it's been going silver since age 18. It's mostly from the temple area, so it's easier to hide depending on how I style my hair though.

I wonder if it's true that if you look at your grandfather from your mother's side that's your future.

if it is true I'm going to be as they say a "Silver Fox"
