I never thought to grew a beard, I am not even sure if I could have a full one? Once I grew a mustache though. I looked like a young unsuccessful Tom Selleck so that was short lived as well


Lol . I shaved my beard once but kept the 'stache . Looked like an old male porn star from the early 80's . Wife took one look at me and said "NOPE !!!" .

This whole thread is sexist as it doesn't even acknowledge the bearded woman.

I keep a beard but it's low and tight. I can understand the day to day but I imagine after having one for a prolonged period of time, it's second nature to keep it away from food and fire and stuff. Also keeping it clean.


You're probably right...still...I always wonder why even go there
What are the benefits....other than...well...hiding your beautiful face.

Ok...correction..one gal here stated the beard gives her better number 3
I can understand that.

Noticed that trend among westerners the past few years .

Personally prefer staying clean shaved as its cleaner also alot more comfortable in the climate here in singapore ( average 30c+ and humid weather worse when indonesia has its annual hazefest . ) even keep head shaved for that reason . Not to menton have no interest in getting mistaken for a jihadi .

Would end up losing clients if went around smelling and looking like a jihadi .

To sum up beards are uncomfortable , dirty and unprofessional so stop being cheap and lazy buy a damn razor and shave .

I don't understand the beard thing, and I am a guy. I have a feeling it has to do with some sort of "See I am a man." Seeing as how most younger men have been more or less emasculated. But most guys I see with them live in the city and fall in the under 30 category.
As for me "You can leave this long haired country boy alone."

I have a beard, but I keep it trimmed and clean. I agree with the OP. The santa clause style beard is kind of excessive. If i let my beard grow too long between trims, or if i dont get the wild hairs under control, it looks tacky and hobo status.

I went my whole life w/o a beard. I've had it for about 2 years now, and I think it makes me look better, and keeps my face cooler in the sun.

one is considered...manly I guess, for having a long beard.

I definitely felt manly. Manly as ****.

1. It's disgusting. I've seen more than a few times...where long facial hair on a man...gets in a way of a normal food consumption. I've seen beards dipped into soup, gravy (not intentionally), then...sometimes I notice food leftovers embedded in that facial bush.

Yeah, this was one of the main reasons I decided to get rid of it. I got really tired of pulling my mustache out of my mouth every time I tried to stick food in, or holding my beard back with one hand when I had to lean in to a plate or bowl.
Having to constantly pick beard hairs out of my keyboard got pretty old too.

There is nothing wrong with a beard if its kept clean and neat.

Practically speaking facial jar is required if you live outdoors for any length of time. Keeps you warm and keeps the bugs off.

hm...if you asked me before this I would have said it probably sweats under all that hair...especially in summer.

Oh I sweat. But the cool breeze acts like a natural A/C.

thank you...you've explained it much better than me. Probably...because I never had such a beard...but observed similar issues among other men.

My point exactly...

well...it appears that some do indeed. Having in mind how women are more concerned with personal hygiene...it makes me even more curious on the whole thing.

I cant make myself steer clear of the conclusion I made in the OP...that it's about some alpha thing...considering how there is a certain "i'm a man...look I have a beard" context...to which...naturally some women respond to on an instinctive level.
