Happy Valentine's Day to everyone here. I know it will be better fopr some than for others bujt if you awoke this morning with a pulse and respiration, you're off to a really good start!

Now for stubble as in chin whiskers, a three or four day growth, a shadow of a beard on the jaws, whatever you want to call it.

This seems to be the current In-thing in Hollywood, fast replacing the goatee as the "manly" look de jour with most of the young male stars sporting it.
What a bunch of sheep without original thoughts of their own and nothing better to do that follow the latest fads.

In any event, do women really find this attractive, sexy, stimulating, masculine, etc. especially in this day-and-age of waxed chests, polished nails and other metrosexual affectations.

If you have begun to think I find this ridiculous you're absolutely right. To me it looks lazy, unkempt, unattractive and kinda dirty. I've seen street people who look better groomed. Of course, I never hankered to look like Gregory House, M.D.

What are your thoughts?

To me it's just a blessed Sunday, but Happy Valentine's to you and others, Curmudgeon!

While I like the stubble look on some men (the key word being SOME), my chin, cheeks, and other parts hate it.

Yes, when my boyfriend kisses me with that rough stubble, I say, "Get away from me with that brush!"

His stubble really hurts.

Maybe some men can get away with it or the way it looks. But some men just can't do it, regardless what is in style or whatever.

Yeah, some stubbles are soft and bearable, but most aren't. I get stuff on my face that looks like sort of a rash (there may be a word for it, but I don't know it).

Whisker burn!! BTDT...ugh. I don't think stubble makes a guy look attractive. It makes him look lazy.

Same here.

Love the look of it though, just not practically for make out sessions.

Oops! PS: Happy Valentine's Day.

What I can't figure out is how you could keep it at that short length. Once it started looking like a real beard it seems like you'd have to shave it off and then it would take several days to get that stubble appearance again. My beard is as white as the driven snow so that stubble look wouldn't work for me anyway. Besides, I agree that it's just another dumb fashion trend.
