I love the soul patch Body...and your sarcasm

I don't mind facial hair when it's nice and neat. I definately don't like the grizzly adams look. But give me a man with a bald head and a closely trimmed goatee....oh my...putty in their hands.

Men over 45 and facial hair

I have had a beard, in some form or another, since I was 18 and in the Navy and tired of some PO coming around and telling me to shave every day. I've shaved it off on a few occasions, never for more than a few weeks, but it just doesn't look like me staring back in the mirror. Hell, even mom said to me one time I shaved it off that I looked better with it, and she hated it initially. It grows on you!

Fact is, its my face and my personal choice, and I'll almost certainly wear my facial hair for the rest of my life. If some woman wants to reject me on that basis alone, without even taking the time to get to know me, that is entirely her choice. But, to paraphrase Dennis Miller, why not get to know me, and then you can find a whole host of other reasons to reject me?

What, exactly is a 'soul patch'?
I have a little soul patch on my chin, sister
Is this the same as 'the spot where the angels kissed you'...that *I* always like to kiss too....for fun? It's been a long time since I saw that....thanks for the memories....

I have had a beard most of my life,I dislike shaving and it's hard on my skin.But I try to keep it neat so I don't look like a homeless bum,which for me is easy to do.

I guess it depends on the guy, the personality, and the type of facial hair.

Although I have a middle-management job by work-day, in my free-time I'm a cowboy. My moustache suits who I am and several ladies have complimented me on it.

I for one spent 21 years in the Navy where I was not allowed to grow a beard. I also just don't like shaving. I keep it trimmed and am not against getting rid of it for the right person.

I vote for no facial hair or mustaches!! Reminds me of Magnum PI when I see a mustache now.

While I am no Tom Selleck, speaking for actually no one other than myself, your support of hairy faced men is appreciated. Spread the word among the sisterhood.

It how we tell the old men from the old women!
But seriously, a beard is much softer than razor stubble. If facial hair is irritating your face; it’s not the beard, it’s the stubble. As far as being snot, food, whatever catchers, that’s a hygiene problem. Someone needs to learn to put food in their mouths, not on their face. My beard is my preference. I’ve had it for over 30 years.

Let me see here. Men over 45 would have been born prior to 1963. Go back and look at the pictures from the 1960s. Not many men over 45 then had beards. But almost all the teenagers did. The times may have changed but not everyone changes with the times. I sure wish my hair had not thinned to the point where it looked unprofessional to have it shoulder length. Another ten years and I'll probably be reduced to a crew cut and have to join the army.

Had mine for over twenty years. I have a twin brother and people had a hard time getting us mixed up so I let it grow. I kind of know what I would look like without it so I am not curious to shave it off. So far it has not seemed to be an issue with anyone I have been with.

I've had mine for over 20 years as well. The last time I shaved was on the day I retired from the Air Force, my rebellion from the imposed standards of a 21 year career. Now, I'm just comfortable in this shaggy skin. And just think of the fortune I've saved in razors, blades, shaving cream and smelly after shave! Not to mention the ritual bloodletting from the occasional nicks and cuts!

The REAL issue isn't men over 45 with facial hair....
it's WOMEN over 45.... or over 35....... who shave over their top lip and think we don't notice! PLEASE!!! There's nothing more creepy to a guy, especially one like me who LOVES kissing, to feel stubble on a woman's lip.
There's GOTTA be a better way to deal with it, ladies!!!!!

I prefer men with facial hair. well groomed is a must. i like all the different designs or styles they come up with too. especially partial to moustaches. i think it is sexy as hell.
guys, don't shave them off! oh and also, the way they stroke them absentmindedly is nice.

If a man has strong facial features, he can go either way for me. A man with weaker facial features generally looks nice with some well styled and trimmed facial hair. My opinion only. I have no real preference.

Patrick....I think you need to lighten up.

I had a beard from 18 to 52. Shaved it off in February when IBM laid me off after 28 years. Can't go on job interviews (no matter your age) with a beard and I never wanted just a mustache. People tell me I look younger, since the beard was gray. A few women I know say they liked me better with the beard, but most people say I look better without it. I may dye my hair when this temp job I'm on runs out, especially if I have a hard time finding another job. Gotta worry about first impressions! RD

...Not having seen you with facial hair it's kinda hard to judge which look is better on you but from your picture I would have to say I like you without the beard....the grey on top looks good too. If you don't have to dye your hair don't...but thats just my opinion.

I like you because you are "You"...I like you even more cause you have a beard....I like you even more cause we are a team that works well together and shares a common bond....I like you even more cause you like me...I like you even more cause we are in sync with each other...

You see where the beard ranks in the "I like you" profile"


happy swimming...
