I am in the process of growing a beard. Today one of my coworkers told me that I look like a mountain man. So, ladies, is that good or bad?

I don't really like them in general, but they look ok on some people. Mostly, no tho.

I think a properly trimmed beard looks great!

What I hate is the 5 o'clock shadow look that so many men are affecting.

I love them, but they must be full, close cropped and neat. Also, they must be accompanied by a mustache. I cannot stand a mustache-less beard. Every man I've ever had a relationship with has had a beard, except for my first boyfriend, because he was too young to grow one (only 18).

Well...that depends on the guy, the face, the beard and the woman. Some guys look great sporting a beard; you could scarcely imagine the individual without it.

A guy has to have fairly thick facial hair to grow a nice beard; sparse and patchy doesn't look good.

Groom your beard! Buy a trimmer and use it at least once a week. Shave above your beard, cheeks, and below, neck, to keep it looking tidy. Use your napkin often.

I have heard some women say that they consider beards dirty. If you wash your hair, wash your face, I don't see the problem.

My husband currently has a beard. Currently... he grows a beard, shaves it; he grows a mustache, shaves; look at my new goatee, shaves.

Have fun with that.

I like facial hair IF it looks attractive on the guy and is groomed - none of that 2 ft. long beard, handlebar mustache stuff.

It might work for some men (although I rarely see it working)... and if your coworker thinks it makes YOU look like a mountain man, maybe a beard is not your best look?

I am sure there are women out there who like the mountain man look, but I would guess that they are in the minority.

If you must have beard, then perhaps keep it very trimmed. You can always post a pic and ask for feedback
