I like the beard.

I like YOU.

@jlynn37 Try not to.

@Donotbelieve What harm is there in just liking someone?

@jlynn37 Fine, do as you like. You were warned.
I'm not very likeable and I'm uncomfortable with people who openly like me.

@Donotbelieve Your opinion of yourself is noted and and has no bearing on me? I still like you.

@jlynn37 I never gave you my opinion of myself.

@Donotbelieve "I'm not very likeable and I'm uncomfortable with people who openly like me." What is this?

@Donotbelieve Forgive me for trying to be complimentary and I will end this dialogue.

@jlynn37 I think too highly of myself and not very highly of many people.
That is a grouchy defense mechanism. I am unlikeable on purpose. Blah. Blah. Blah.

Unless I like a person.

I am honest.

Also, I don't warm to people who speak to me in overtly sexual ways...achem.

Depends on the person. A short trimmed beard is nice. I'm not a fan of the Gandalf type beards that hipsters wear.

But. But. But, Gandalf helped in the defeat of Sauron!!!

@LimitedLight

Yeah. But would you want to French kiss him?

@Ellatynemouth No, because the woman I had a date with last week might get jealous. πŸ˜›

@Compassion8doubt he’s busy not lettin balrogs pass n shit. Make a trilogy about your most hectic 3 weeks ever n see how much bedroom wizardry it features ? Also everyone knows Gandalf’s gay, he and professor X have been getting forcibly shaven by @Ellatynemouth and seeming quite happy about it together for years. ?

@Wurlitzer That's Durbleberry.

@Wurlitzer

They were willing! And anything to play cupid.

I have a dear friend who covers a lot of their tunes on ukulele. Love it!

Love them, I’ve been a fan for years.

Rotflol.. thank you. That’s the most awesome thing I have seen in a time. Made my day!

I am partial to facial hair on men - so I voted for Beard - but - It is Florida, it is Summer. AND most importantly - it is YOUR face. Do as ye will.

It has been hot. I’ve been getting out more and walking. I am not as hot or itchy.

Really , it is nice to hear women who prefer beards , sounds like mostly my age group though and that is just fine .. 55-70

I shaved my beard at 64 everyone thinks I am in my late 40's .. that is weird !

Do whatever makes you happy! πŸ™‚

Yes, we all want a partner who is happy with his or her own appearance. However, just for the sake of the conversation and question posed, if you took the same person -- same personality -- everything equal -- would you prefer to look at -- or would you be more attracted to one or other other?

@BlueWave, attraction for me is strongly based on someone's personality. I could care less if my partner did or did not have facial hair as long as they were happy.

I'm always amazed at how young a man looks after he shaves that mop off of his face. Why would anyone want to look older? No beard, all the way!

@maturin1919 Not this woman

2

Personally...I just think men with full beards always look homeless.
A little scruff shadow is ok... and/or a well manicured mustache.

@Morganfreeman No, no they aren't.

I recently got rid of mine and have since been reminded of what a drag shaving is.

I know. I just hate the chore.

1

My preference is always a clean face

3

I prefer facial hair on a man. I do think you have a face that can go either way, though.

Agreed

2

Love beards!

Great for 'tickling'!!!

2

Totally team beard.

I let my beard do whatever it wants...

2

Beards are sexy!!!

Beard, for sure!!!

I shaved my goatee & mustache once. My two girls, early teens, had never seen me without facial hair. They were horrified, and demanded I grow it back. I didn't realize I was that ugly. I grew it back. LOL

I prefer a clean shaved face. πŸ™‚

I like a beard on a man, and neatly groomed is my preference. But then again, it is summer here in Oregon, and beards might be too warm!

A neatly trimmed beard is a thing of beauty!

You'll rock it in any case, but if I was to pick, I would say Beard all the way (massive facial hair fan here).

2

Dragging razor blades across my face never appealed to me… I’m far more comfortable in my beard ... but you do you πŸ™‚ ... that said, If you have a beard and can’t change a tire, shave! ... ok, stole that from a meme... follow your chiπŸ™‚

1

You look great both ways! I’d say you do look younger without it though. Do whatever you are most comfortable with.

2

The problem is how much a beard can age you. I'm backwards and forwards between both and I usually get rid when too many people say how old I look. When the youthful comments wear off after a week or two I start growing one again haha!

personal choice

I'm in the minority. I voted no beard. A short, nicely groomed beard, mustache, etc. is perfectly okay to me.

Grizzly Adams style (while I thought he was sexy as hell when I was young), just isn't for me.

You may wash it every single day, but to ME, it makes one look unkempt.
