@HisNightOwl2014:  Goodness! Why is it upsetting you so much? (I’m not judging! I am just curious.) I’m 28 and I got my first pure white hair at 19. My mom pulled it out and said, “Look!” Thanks, Mom. But I didn’t get any more until I was 25. Just one or two. Now I have a couple dozen, all in one spot, right where my hair parts (which is to the side, not the center). Personally, I love my silver and white hairs. I couldn’t tell you why, but I do. What is it about them that’s making you so upset?

Well, this might cheer you up: I’ve had grey hairs since I was 5.

So it could be worse:)! But I know it’s no fun.

@HisNightOwl2014:  I know how you feel. I don’t like getting old either and sometimes I get really sad about it. But I think that it’s easier for guys because our society is so skewed in terms of aging for women vs men. So I don’t think that guys fully understand how aging feels for a woman. I know that my Boyfriend or Best Friend doesn’t really “get it”, and he’s 3 years younger than me!

@HisNightOwl2014:  My Boyfriend or Best Friend will offer to pluck all of my grey hairs for me. He’ll be like “It’s been a while. Shall I help you with your hair again?” and then he’ll work on it for a good hour or so. I always joke with him like “Now that’s love!” Haha!

@HisNightOwl2014:  You should give each one a story. If you’re going to pull them out, make them the villains, traitors who must be banished. If you choose to keep them, make them brave heroes who have been rewarded with a white mark for courage and goodness. “I got this one when I saved the prince from the clutches of a marauding pirate! And THIS one happened when I overcame my worries about starting a new chapter in my life!” You know, badges of honor. Then it’s not about getting old, but about having lived a great life.

@HisNightOwl2014:  There are people who don’t make it to 40? Lol, sure, but in the Western world is that really an issue, people dropping dead before 40? Hehe. Also, the thing about more greys coming when you pluck one is a myth, so don’t worry:) Like my hair stylist says “If that were true, why wouldn’t more hair come if you plucked a regular hair? If it did, they wouldn’t need to make thickening shamppos anymore.” Hehe.

@HisNightOwl2014:  Hehe, no problem:) Yeah but wouldn’t it get boring living forever? No wonder Edward has to constantly try to find things to keep him occupied.
