Men were not meant to have shaven faces and shaving is a pain. Long full beards are awesome. I don't dress for others. I dress for myself and don't care what others think. Beards seem to have become popular in recent years. I guess if you can't grow a beard well it's better to shave.

So just look at each of the following links to momentarily look at examples of varied celebrity males with crazy bushy beards that lean toward being rather unruly, unkempt, disheveled, et al:

http://www.wetpaint.com/wp-content/u.../01/Beard7.jpg <---- David Letterman

https://www.kansascity.com/entertain...1140/letterman <---- David Letterman

https://www.ranker.com/list/celebrit...elebrity-lists <---- Joaquin Phoenix (scroll down in the article to see his labeled image) <-- Especially take note of Joaquin Phoenix

https://c-7npsfqifvt34x24jnhjyx2esbo...hf_$/$/$/$/$/$ <---- Jim Carrey



The question for you is: I know that all choices for how to present oneself are each person's individual right and their form of expression. Having said that, why do certain males such as these that photos are displayed for by myself (re: David Letterman, Joaquin Phoenix, Jim Carrey) and a host of other males both celebrity and non-celebrity think that this is in any way, shape or form the way to presenting themselves in such a way that any other person of discernment would deem them as attractive or appealing in any way????? That is, if you are a heterosexual woman or even a gay male and look at them as they present themselves, is the way that they choose to present themselves make you want to be love-y dove-y, kiss-y, and intimate with them????? Forget that they are celebrities (and very monied) and pretend that they were just nameless commoners who blend into the mass population of the planet at-large. If you saw them out there in the world looking like this, would YOU desire to be intimate with them? It is OK if you would but just wondering if anyone out there finds this choice of how to present oneself to be sensually appealing at all. Perhaps said males don't really care about being sensually appealing and hence present themselves as this to dampen or turn off any appeal that anyone could feel toward them.

What are your own honest thoughts on their choice of personal appearance (i.e., their crazy bushy beards and facial hair)?
Ehh, to each his own. Personally I don't like fat women who call themselves 'curvy', but some guys do. Have at it, the preferences of others don't bother me.

NO. Crazy wild beards are a super strong anti-aphrodisiac.

Nice well-kept beards can enhance some men. Whether a man looks good with a beard is so individual.

Some men who wear mustaches and beards do it because they may have a more feminine face, believing it will make them look more masculine.

Lots of beard hating on this thread.

Women are intimidated by man's manliness when man grows a gnarly manly beard. It reminds them that they are not dominant and gives them anxiety because of it.

Men with beards don't care if a woman finds it attractive or not because they know that other women appreciate their manliness and find it sexy. They have no need to compete with their soy boy, latte sipping, clean shaving counterparts for female attention.

Beards have a special power and no one whose ever grown a real one can deny this.

-Signed random guy, with year plus beard growth who sometimes has food particles, beer and chew dripping from his beard.

It depends.
Though a well-kempt (any length) beard is preferable to scraggy biker beard. I don’t even mind the tiny braided, or beads added beards. Make it look like it is on purpose

But a moustache solo, notsomuch, on anyone (I know it is just a “thing” for me).

Btw someone mentioned Jason Momoa, he takes care of that facial hair, that’s the key.

I grew a beard for the first time in my life this year. And I'm going to keep it. Why? Nothing to do with fashion or rebellion, but because I look objectively better for it.

I have always had a weak lower facial structure (receding small chin etc), and a compact "baby face" also likened to that of a chihuahua. The beard, at a certain length and neatly groomed, adds maturity and character to my face, so much so that it goes from being a 3/10 to maybe 7/10. I noticed a lot more positive looks from people and whatever anybody thinks, people do judge you by the way you appear.

Other men would also sneer at me and take me less seriously without the beard. Living in my life and seeing the differences it makes in how I'm perceived is enough reason for me to keep it. Not that only, but I personally find it looks far more attractive.

Well ok, it's your choice. But please...don't do the following, it's so annoying...

...don't stroke, pull on, twist, curl or otherwise pet your beard. Also: NO FOOD in your beard, yuk. Clean, clean, clean. Don't comb your beard or otherwise arrange it in public.

Unfortunately that requires checking a mirror frequently that I don't associate with a real man. Sure you won't be clean shaven????
