My wife puts up with my idiosyncrasy. If anybody else doesn't like my beard, it is THEIR problem, not mine.





It only becomes *your* problem.....if your wife doesn’t like it....

Not really. It just popped up as a stream of thought.

But upon further consideration... I used to hate all facial hair on men, but my opinion changed upon recently seeing it on some men. Caveats already provided.

Long beards are harder to carry off, but it works for some when the beard hides features such as weak chins, no lips, or turkey neck. But only if the beard is thick rather than spotty/scraggly.

Don't like: ZZ Top guys

Very nice: George Custer in full beard ( esp. paired with that hat). Full beard, not the Van Dyke.

And because it obscures certain facial features, a beard will, by default, emphasize others, especially the eyes. So attractive eyes are enhanced.

My DH is clean shaven, and to my knowledge has never considered growing a beard.

Frankly, I’d hate to kiss a guy with “scruff.” But I personally don’t mind neatly trimmed beards. I am turned off by long, hillbilly beards.

However what I do like is a man who is confident enough to do what he wants with his appearance, especially if he practices good grooming. A nicely groomed older man is a guy I would admire, frankly. For me, it is about overall good grooming more than a beard.

But I am old, and my attitudes are probably out of date.

I like facial hair on most guys but I also prefer a hairy chest.

I'm fine with stubble and close beards, never cared for the shaggy Duck Dynasty, ZZ Top, old school biker, etc. style of beads.

Also fine with cleanshaven.

My husband is military, so he is almost always cleanshaven, unless we're on vacation, then he kicks back and leaves stubble. They're allowed to do moustaches, but no beard, and some go that route. I'm glad he doesn't, because moustache sans beard is so bad.

My dad has had a close beard literally my whole life. I've only seen his chin in pictures. He grew it when it was on trend in the mid-70s, and just left it. We joke that since it's come back around and he is now trendy again, he's the original hipster.
