    I prefer clean shaven, but I don’t mind the facial hair. The only bit I really don’t like where it is at the in between stage where his stubble is really scratchy. That I don’t like. He never has a moustache, just a beard usually, and very short.

    My fiance has this beard thing. It’s kind of sexy imo. It’s not like all over his face and he keeps it trimmed, so I like it enough. He’s had it the whole 3 1/2 years we’ve been together.


    giant photo for reference, since I don’t know how to describe it:

    My boyfriend’s facial hair isn’t very thick…He would have to try for months to grow out an appropriate goatee/mustache/beard… But I do love his 5 o’clock shadow. He has very dark facial hair, and I think his stubble is very attractive. That said, I almost like it more than his clean-shaven face! So I voted for stubble 🙂

    For some reason, I’ve only dated guys who can’t grow facial hair to save their lives.  My Fiance shaves only once per week because it grows that slowly.  Maybe that means I prefer clean-shaven guys.  I’d be open to facial hair as long as it isn’t itchy stubble.

    Mine usually has something on the spectrum between scruff and a full bushy beard. I really like the scruff, but he’s a little too lazy to keep it trimmed all the time so it morphs into a big beard fairly frequently. 

    ew, I’d be bummed if he just grew a mustache, too! Or a goatee or a sole patch.

    My Fiance has a beard and I love it! He is very good at keeping it trimmed too.

    I love my man’s beard (he keeps it short).  I think it really depends on the guy, some men don’t wear facial hair well.  I don’t like moustaches on guys in general though.

    I prefer him with no beard, but I’ve only ever seen that in photos. The low beard he wears looks nice, but it only lasts a day or so until he begins to look homeless and he refuses to touch it up between haircuts (every 2 weeks). Likewise, he prefers me with straight hair and has never seen it in real life (ever). I try not to complain about his facial hair and I keep my flat iron hidden in the bottom of a drawer.

    Mine has a goatee, and I’ve told him often if he shaves it, he’s single. I really dislike clean shaven but I dont like a full beard either…I’m a middle ground girl I guess. Goatee, short and tidy all the way.

    Mine shaves on the days he has to work and keeps his 5 o’clock shadow when he’s off. I like both looks. However, I hate (read: absolutely cannot stand) beards, I would never be attracted to a guy with a beard. Or mustache. Or goatee.

    Fiance would have to shave 30 times a day to have no facial hair. It’s far too much work, so I’m used to seeing all the in between stages. I don’t like it, but I don’t really care either. Generally though he is clean shaven (as much as possible for him) because he knows I like it.

    I adore my DH’s beard!!

    I like his facial hair a lot. As a teen, I loved his clean shaven look. After grad, I found his stubble and goatee really sexy. Now that we are older, his beard makes him so manly and me, weak at the knees. Here is a photo of his goatee, pre-beard.

    I don’t mind the look of a 5 o’clock shadow, but I don’t like how it feels.  I’m not a fan of facial hair beyond that.  Darling Husband hasn’t been one to grow a mustache or beard, and some days he has to be as clean shaven for his job.  At it’s worst he went for about 2 weeks during exams without shaving and there was less kissing!
