My husband's facial hair is his to do as he pleases. Some designs I like more than others, so I have an opinion that he respects, but it's his decision. I do like him with some.

Over the years he's been clean shaven, goatee, Van Dyke, full beard. And for our first date only, a mustache. He showed up on my doorstep and I had a "what the heck!" moment. It was 1992, and mustache-only wasn't a popular thing. Fortunately he didn't like it and shaved it off not long after. Mustache-only is a tougher look to pull off. More men look better with chin hair than just lip.

Husband has a Van Dyke right now, and wants to grow a full beard, but over the last few years he's gone totally white and doesn't want to look like Santa.

Really the purpose of the post was to determine which CD members have a sense of humor and which have none. It is working our really well.
I thought it was funny.

I can't grow a beard because it's not thick enough and it makes the double chin look worse.

Actually I think heavier dudes typically look better clean shaven if they can't grow a thick beard, and by thick I don't mean long.

Since I'm not willing to google "porn stache" ---can you explain? Or a pic?

I think heavier dudes do a good job hiding their fat behind a huge beard. Just don't one of these around the mouth beards that indicates where your chin should be.

I'm indifferent, but all the women in my life, including my one girl child and my sister, are the ones who grow the most upset when I cut it off, so it stays to keep them happy. They all say my looks really change when I cut it off.

I've always had a moustache too. Wife loves it. Once, when I was about 25, I wanted to surprize her, so while she was still at work I shaved it off.

I went out to her car to greet her, and (not joking!) she did not recognize me. When I leaned in the open window to give her a kiss, she repelled back, and it wasn't until I spoke she knew who I was. She then told me she would not kiss me until it grew back, as I looked like I was a 16 year old, and she refused to "rob the cradle."

Two weeks later, I was invited to cuddle

I like a mustache on a guy - that's proof I'm still living in the 70's. Don't care for goatees all that much.

Some of the famous male porn stars of the 70s and 80s had big full mustaches along with their mullets. Ot became a thing, especially for young adult women to categorize a guy. I'm not sure if the category was good or bad; I couldn't ever figure it out. It seems to have been either, depending on who used it and with whom.

All the women in my life seem to feel the same way. I must simply look better with a mustache than without one. Or they're just so use to seeing mine I look weird to them if I cut it off.

But they all seem to dislike it just as much if I let it get too shaggy. I could never let mine grow as long as John Bolton grows his and get away with it.
