Are you naturally hairless or do you shave the hair on your body? You look great; natural (as in not PED'd to the hilt) and yet fit and muscular. Way to go at almost 45 years of age Steve.

My wife prefers me hairy. I prefer me hair free (when I am in good shape). Right now the compromise is that I am trimming the body hair short, this way I keep my wife happy and I can still see any progress I make. I used to shave all the body hair off, which feels really good to the touch. Oh well! Unlike you, my hair is light brown and white in some places.

I have always heard that a woman's most important feature is her gowning glory, as in the hair she has on her head. My daughter, who is quite beautiful, shaved her head right after her son was born. Amazingly, it actually enhanced her beauty. She has grown it back and she still looks beautiful. My mom prized her mane of hair all her life. She never suffered from hair thinning and up until the day she died, she had an amazing head of hair.

Do many women have issues with body hair? I know that some have issues with facial hair as they age and their hormones go crazy. My wife spends at least a couple of hours a week plucking unwanted facial hair. Her hormones have been in the toilet for decades.

My wife went through early menopause when she was still in her thirties. Our daughter seems to have inherited much of the same symptoms as her mother has had. I probably didn't offer anything good in terms of genetic predisposition to hormonal issues since I have had testosterone deficiencies since my twenties. My wife and I think of both of our children as miracle children. Given all of our issues, it is amazing that we managed to reproduce.

I think that society in general is becoming hair free, body wise. I have had laser and its becoming very common now. More and more women I talk to are opting for laser which is permanent hair reduction. Men shave their legs and trim and shave their privates. I don't think my hair is my clowning glory however when I was on constant antibiotics for 16 months it really suffered the most. And I hated having flat lifeless hair. Now it's healthy and full and shiny. As far as hormones go I get my period every month and nothing seems to be different. My mum got menapause quite late so I am likely to take after her.

68
Virgo
eyes green/hair blond (now white from old age).
training 52 years, on and off
favorite bodyparts are all but legs and chest more so.
Bodybuilders I admire, anyone who looks better than I do, with a preference for the classics of the 60's
I hate every thing that gets in the way of my making it to the gym.
I have to drink a glass of orange juice every morning. The rest is optional.
I like all foods as long as they are prepared well.
I don't binge eat.
When I want a snack, nuts are a first choice and French fries are a close second.
I am not a car person. Whatever gets me from one place to another safely is fine with me. I do love the look of a Jaguar though, but then I also like the new Fiat.
My favorite colors are earth tones and black..
Favorite movie of all time is Accidental Tourist with William Hurt.
I gravitate to classical and jazz music. But I enjoy all music with the exception of hard rock, country, Dixieland.
My wife and I have a son and a daughter who are now 46 and 37 years old. Two children was my ideal. My wife wanted five children. They produced 4 grandchildren, two boys and two girls.
I resemble everyone and no one. I have been mistaken for Donald Sutherland in the past. Personally, I don't see the resemblance.
Having gone mostly bald in my twenties, I have never sported a mullet.
Minus the drugs, I affected the dress of a hippy during those years. Today I am a fairly conservative dresser.When I was sixteen years old I wanted a 57 powder blue Thunderbird, Instead my parents bought me a 55 Chevrolet Bel Air convertible, exactly like the one Cheech and Cbong had. Too bad that I didn't appreciate it.
I think I drink too much alcohol. The problem is that I rarely get drunk so there is no way for me to know when to stop drinking. On the plus side, I am so uninhibited that when I drink I am the same person I am when I don't drink.
My mother has passed. We were best friends, so it might be accurate to say I was sort of a momma's boy, although I was very rebellious and rarely did what she wanted me to. Family is everything to me.
There is so much more about me, but as you suggested....I think this will do.

All the women in my life have had hormonal issues. My mom, had a partial hysterectomy after I was born because she screwed up her reproductive organs by taking a heavy dose of laxatives which brought on labor before I had gone full term. She did not want to look pregnant any longer (it is a long story). Both of my sisters are adopted because my mother could not get pregnant after she had me. My wife started early menopause right after our daughter was born when my wife was 33 years old. Our daughter followed in her mother's footsteps. She started menopause when she was in her thirties.

You are blessed to still be fertile. Besides not being able to get pregnant, having hormonal imbalances when you are still comparatively young is no picnic.

To add insult to injury, I have suffered from low testosterone for most of my adult life. Who knows, maybe it was a blessing. If I had been more sexually charged, I might have gotten up to a lot of no good.

Must be speaking from the British, and some European view, on conservative people (or party). In America we can have quite many different layers of conservatism or liberalism. We also have liberal conservatives and even conservative liberals. Can't prejudge anyone person(or thing) by whatever label might be put on them, earned or not.
