fat guys need them, specially those w/ tripple and/or quadruple chins. i'm talking about beards in general, but anything below the chin will do.

I love facial hair on men, the more the better! Love just mustaches, mustaches and beards, goatees, close shaven full beards, long beards and soul patches. Love it all! Clean shaven is cool too, but facial hair is great in my book!

There was a chap at work who had a horrid growth under his nose... it was thick and trained to curled up at each end of his mouth. He smoked like a trooper and if he leaned too close the smell of cigarettes was horrendous from this growth and it was disgustingly discoloured.

Beards just conjur up thoughts of rotting food that has got dropped in it!

Yuk! No No No they definately don't do it for me.

My last LT bf had a moustache when we met which he had had for as long as he could remember and I always hated it but never said so then one day out of the blue he shaved it off ..... well it took flippin years off him and he looked so much better. He loved the clean shaven look and said he should have done it years back it was just about plucking up the courage for change.

Thought I'd ressurect this. I have been letting my beard grow for the last 2 months. Have always has a moustache but not a full beard since 1983.Still the same as '83 but now it's grey. Was curious to see what would sprout on my face after 30 yrs. of shaving .... And, wanted to answer a few of the OP's questions.

Yes OP, sometimes it is cool having a face like a grizzly. It's sometimes fun walking down the street, growling and scaring people. Plus, it helps keep the wind off my face in winter.

OP. you're a woman... How do you feel about beards? I get the feeling you don't care for them. But, to each his, or her own.

As for me... Well, once I head back to work I'll probably have to shave. It is kind of fun sporting a beard though.

I really don't like the look of my face without any facial hair at all. I do it for myself--I'm the one who has to look at me in the mirror.

Albvs if I could grow and sculpt a 'tache like you, I'd be wearing one full-time :D

Best I ever manage is a soul patch on occasion, or a goat that my brother refers to as 'Tobacco-chin'

Guys with awesome facial hair have my respect.

The ones that have a patchy 'wolfman' look...well to each their own, but I recommend shaving it if it makes you look worse.

I couldn't imagine that 'Quaker Oats' guy without a moustache. It's just the right thing to do :D

My mother, sisters and aunts used to tell me that women NEVER went for guys with facial hair of any kind, and that I would NEVER get a girlfriend if I grew any. I was young and stupid enough to believe them, but grew my beard out just to spite them.

Turns out, they were WRONG! So Ha Ha Ha. You women who don't like whiskers can just kiss any unhairy portion of my anatomy.

If you ever get the urge to " Talk like a Pirate" I've noticed it's a lot more fun with a beard.....

At times ,I'll even wear an eyepatch to get the full Pirate experience. Sometimes the best entertainment value is your own imagination.... AAArgh

Generally the most I'll have is a goatee. If I do grow out a beard it's just because I forget to shave having no one to impress. Eventually I do shave it down to a goatee or all gone though. If I was trying to impress, I'd likely keep just a goatee, trimmed. Why? I don't know. I've tried the clean shaven look and it doesn't really feel right to me and a full beard gets itchy.

I love mustaches!! I love the way they look, especially the thick ones, and the way they feel, they feel soft. On the other hand, I don't like beards. I don't like the way they look or the way they feel.

I let my beard go grizzly Adams when I'm in Alaska, but it's purely a matter of money and convenience. Razors are expensive up here. I often find myself working 16-20 hour days, 7 days a week, for months at a time and washing my beard every day takes less time than shaving it every day, so I lose less sleep.
Back home I'm either clean shaven or trim the beard down to a goatee.

Very rarely, one male, in a sea of millions, is gifted with the greatest of genetic perfections... great facial hair. I feel, when we are blessed with such divine genes, it is our duty... nay, our responsibility, to allow those genes to flourish and enrich the world with their heavenly handsomeness!

...that and I look like a kid without one.

There's a place for everything... and beards and mustaches don't mix well with my sensitive skin ... unfortunately I just break out with a red rash if a man gets too close with a beard or stubble.

That said, there are men who are just adorable with their mustaches / beards. My patient has a mustache and he's darling ... it gives him snaz.

I was driving to go pick up my grandson the other day and passed a dark red SUV driven by a man with a white beard and a sweet looking older woman in the passenger seat.

On the back of it ... written across the bumper in script ... "Santa Claus & Christmas Carol". Now that was really cute!!!

OP ... I prefer clean-shaven men ... mostly because of my own allergic reactions, but I love to look at attractive men.

this is a question I've never given much thought to ... but ... upon reflection,
since leaving high school, I can't think of any men I've even been minorly
attracted to who didn't have some sort of facial hair ...

I think I equate facial hair on men with being "grown up" ... I'm particularly
attracted to mustaches ... goatees are great ... well trimmed beards of most
kinds are interesting ... I'm not attracted to the "just climbed down off the
mountain" type of scraggily beard tho ...

All this talk about moustaches, beards and porn films.

Now it seems to me that folk are wasting there time on here
if they just want a quick jump.

Pizza delivery is where its at. The lassie never seems to have any money
to pay the gadgie so its beards and moustache country after that.

Now admittedly the geezer must get no wages at the end of the week as the
as the lassies have nae dough (chortle) but he gets a pizza the action so he must
not kneed the dough (oh my giddy aunt)

So ive been told by some uk friends of mine because the big lillian gish says we are
all pervs apparently (oh how i laughed when the forums version of smithers ran to
the bosses aid only to be shot down like a stuka over london)

Anyway only shave if you are going somewhere special like the football

I grew my moustache 29 years ago. I'm sure I've missed out on many women as a result. Nonetheless those that have gone for a ride pretty much all seem to enjoy it with often times deafening alacrity.

I don't know if you meant the pouty little weasel who is aka "24/7," but thinking how much like Smithers he seems made me laugh so hard I almost spat out my coffee. As for facial hair, baseball players have some of the most God-awful displays of it I see these days. How anyone could think sporting a thatch of billy-goat chinwhiskers looked anything but ridiculous, I do not know.

^^^^^^^^^^ Oooh, that reminded me of my old crush on Dennis Eckersley….gorgeous man with such nice long legs….I loved watching him pitch. He had a nice moustache, too. :D

I LOVE facial hair on men, but not all men can pull it off. It should accentuate already good looks; not cover up flaws. I prefer a man who looks good with, and without.

I grew my moustache 29 years ago.
Just about then was when my patient grew his. We had to shave it off today ... he told me how odd it feels since he's basically had it since he was a teenager.

He was having some "skin problems" under the mustache so elected to shave it off today to see if we could correct the problem easier without the mustache.

My patient is bed-ridden and from what he tells me, he has the mustache because his mother thought he looked like a famous movie star with it. He doesn't ... but his mother is deceased and we don't talk about it.

There are some who look great with facial hair of any kind and those who don't. If it doesn't look right on them, then they should let it go.

I prefer men without any kind of facial hair only because I've discovered I get a rash when a man has a stubble or beard. Don't know how a mustache would affect my skin.

My beard and stache just grow too quickly to try to keep clean shaven. I could shave 3X a day. Now I just leave it for about a week or two (until it covers my mouth and I can see it if I look down). But it works out good for natural camoflauge when out hunting and keeps me warm when sleeping out during winter. It would be nice if my face was smooth all the time, but not in my cards I guess.

I have a beard- sometimes stubble. Facial hair is in if you are in your thirties right now. Most attractive girls like it.
