One mostly for the ladies.
Thoughts on beards? Like? Hate? Don't care?
I was out of home at 16, so a beard was easier to manage than shaving daily. I grew it again at 21 as my ex liked them. Each year, over the Easter break I would grow it and take it off on September 1st. Then when my son was born, I didn't shave for about 5 years, very long beard. I took it off one day and kids cried, so I grew it back for a few more. Finally it went white, so took it off until 2 years ago when my hair was turning grey. Then I entered into a contract not to get a haircut or beard trim for 6 months and the beard has stayed ever since. Most ladies I know prefer clean shaven, they tell me so, yet none have given me an ultimatum, just stated their preference. I am not much into kissing, so the beard helps there also, though I have had complaints about beard rash on other occasions. So generally ladies, if you don't mind, is a beard a deal breaker?
I've dated two guys who had beards; I liked them! I'm not particularly attracted to men who have super long or ill-kept beards, but I do like them in general.
And, on the topic of facial hair . . . I LOVE goatees for the most part; however, for some reason, I don't care at all for mustaches.
Beards I think are different for everyone. I personally love them. I love seeing how guys adapt them to fit their needs or personalities and it's much like how us women do our hair. Some are more picky about how they do their beards and some don't care. I personally find that I do like them.
My wife preferred a beard over the four pm shadow. Said it was nice and soft, and didn't cause a rash. Have had a beard for more than 45 years, and several kids have never seen me without. Safe to say, will probably keep it. Won't try to speak for any other women.
I like the look of some beards. It just really depends. I really like neat beards but I've seen a few wild ones that looked pretty good too.
I've never had sex with a bearded man (only mustaches) but I never say never and will usually try anything at least once.
I like beards, I like clean shaven. I like hair, but bald happens. I think people should do with their hair what they want to. I'm more interested in what kind of heart and brain is behind the beard or lack thereof. The caveat being cleanliness!! Sloppy is no good.
I super hate neck beards and the duck dynasty trend. What on earth started it, even our lawn nazi neighbor is sporting one. The fact he has one makes me wonder if it isn't connected to red pill /anti fem/MRA mentality, a kind of "fuck you", or even a "I dare you to grow your bush 70's style to match".
Idk, it reminds me of the time I had super long hair and accidentally got Kozy Kitten cat food in it one morning leaving me wondering what the bad smell was all day long.
/a guy would have to love every single thing about me for it to be ok, then maybe
Short trimmed beards another story.
I like a well trimmed beard and mustatch, not the long out of conrol ones, usually only need trimming once a week to stay nice and smooth and full looking , men that have a weak chin and thin upper lip to me always look better with a short well trimmed beard and statch.
The only thing I really find a turn-off is scratchy stubble. The kind that goes hand in hand with a day or two of not shaving. Kissing that for any length of time starts to make my lips sore.
An established beard isn't remotely scratchy, in my experience. I quite like a sensible one. Full-on ZZ Top would be a deal breaker though.
