My boss who was the CIO and I were exactly the same age — late 30s and we both had quite a bit of grey in our hair. He had black hair so his was more visible than mine; I’m a blond so mine looked like platinum streaks. I think it looks pretty cool. Not that this should even matter but I’m a pretty attractive woman and far more attractive than he is.

One day he said, “You don’t color your grey, do you?” He went on to tell me that it “wasn’t socially acceptable” for me to do that because “men want to date younger women” and that I should color my hair to try to look younger.
