I like clean shaven-ish. Clean faces are far more attractive, imho.

I had a gorgeous bf... looked like former footballer, David Beckham. He once asked me the same q & I told him to be comfortable & look how he wanted. He kept asking, as he shaved weekdays but liked to go sans shaving on weekends. Being honest, I told him that up to 2 day's stubble was sexy... by day 3, he was beginning to look homeless.

If growing out a beard, there's an awkward stage... so, that's to be expected. Personally, I don't like the look of full beards or those ZZ Top type beards... or Sam Elliot mustaches. A goatee is okay on the right lad... clean shaven is beautiful.

Ultimately, I don't like the feel of whiskers on my face. Still... if I have an SO, I'm not so rigid that I feel the need to dictate his fashion sense. But, if asked, I'd give the same opinion as above.

BTW, I've had the same q from bf's in regard to chest hair. I prefer none, but, if a man decides he likes his natural look, so be it. I can deal.

I prefer the scruff/5 o'clock shadow look on my man.

^^^^ THIS. I love chest hair and don't get the current trend of 'manscaping'. I like body hair on men in general.

I prefer some facial hair as well

I am not into tattoos personally and not especially attracted to guys who have a lot of big ones all over their bodies.

I don't like beards in most cases; or stubble that lasts beyond a day or two. Permanent stubble or scruff turns me off; I think it looks slovenly unless the man is living in the wilderness or is playing a role in Lord of the Rings or Game of Thrones, etc. I like clean-shaven men.

Only the really good looking guys can get away with the scruffy look. Well, for a few days at least. Unless the guy has "it" he can wear the scruffy look whether he's good looking or not. I guess when it comes to kissing and dancing cheek-to-cheek, the clean look works best.

Love mustaches.

Scruffy is OK, if not too contrived.

Other facial hair is OK, but no soul patch, goatee, ZZ Top beard, Santa beard, Colonel Sanders beard, braided beard or a beard where something is living in it.

I like some scruff on some men, but most look better clean shaven. As for kissing, give me clean shaven!

Whisker burns are OUCHIE!

I just don't get it.

Joe Buck did the Cowboys' game yesterday afternoon in front of million viewers and get on TV needing a shave.



I can understand this dude who doesn't give a damn about his looks, but when someone gets on TV like Buck did, he owes it to his viewers to appear clean shaven, imo.
