    I can relate 🙂 I was never a huge fan of facial hair in general. In the last year or so Fiance has sported a beard (short, close to face not like long lumberjack beard but definitely more than a 5 o’clock shadow) and I really like it on him!

    I love facial hair, but it has to be kept neat. My boyfriend right now has a full, but short, beard and I adore it.

    Until I started dating DH I didn’t like facial hair at all, not even stubble. With DH, I think my ideal facial hair is about a week’s worth of growth. He would never rock a full beard because he thinks they are itchy, and I am A-OK with that! He looks super young freshly shaven so stubble is just perfect for him!

    Love it, I would probably pass out if my DH shaved his goatee. I wanted him to grow a beard, and he tried but the itchiness was too much for him 🙁

    My man is the only guy I’ve ever been involved with that’s had a full beard. He’s had many variations though, goatee, even clean shaven a time or two. I don’t really have a preference in hair or bare, but long beard is an absolute N.O. Luckily that will never happen due to his job’s safety policies.

    NOOOO. Hate, hate, hate facial hair! On like 99% of men. I think that, generally, most men look way better without one. However, in DH’s case it’s even more pronounced, as his facial hair doesn’t grow in evenly and looks all patchy. Luckily, he generally agrees!

    He never does clean shaven, he goes between super short stubble and long stubble and I love it.

    In between clean and one day shaven. I really really really really dislike facial hair. It grosses me out.

    sunnierdaysahead2:  I love when my Fiance has some scruff… Such a turn on! He usually only shaves for auditions (his side gig is acting) so I always know he’s in actor mode when he shaves lol

    I like a beard more than stubble, stubble is scratchy! Not full beard though.

    DH has the same facial hair look he had when we met, basically he shaves his neck and the middle of his cheeks and keeps it looking clean. I told him he had to shave it off before our wedding so I could see his whole face lol, and he did, and I was not a fan! But it was a few months before our wedding so there was plenty of time for it to grow back 🙂

    I like facial hair when it’s more than 1 mm long, so it’s not bristly, but it’s not a full beard… soft stubble that gives a bit of manly contouring to the face. I prefer my men not to clean shave because that way stubble rash lies – it’s my memory of my father, that he would shave in the morning and when we hugged him at night it would scratch our faces… I’d rather have permanently soft stubble.

    Aalso it looks better on some men – my husband in particular has a thick neck and not very pronounced chin (or something) and when clean shaven you sometimes can’t tell what’s neck and what’s face in some photos. With the stubble he looks much better. 🙂

    My guy is normally clean shaven, including his entire head. (He is going bald, so he just shaves it all off.) However, sometimes he grows some very festive mutton chops and I do enjoy them for their novelty, even though the partially cover his very strong jawline.
