    he wears a goatee on a normal basis, but I love a full beard on him. He hates it. Sigh.

    Love. My hubby is lazy with shaving so it works out for me;) 

    he had the beard before it was trendy and he looks like a different person without it! I hope he keeps it forever!

    I love when SO has stubble!

    When we first started dating he was clean shaven but one date he turned up with stubble and I kept stroking his face and telling him how sexy he looked.. he always has stubble now.

    I loVe a good beard my so has had one since our first date when I made a comment I liked them. I also think stubble is hot. I used to hate hairy guys but as I got older I have liked it more and more!

    My Fiance looks like a little boy without his facial hair, but because he’s Asian, it’s so sparse! Lol. It needs to be short to look okay.

    sunnierdaysahead2:  This is so my topic. I have always been against facial hair. But my boyfriend has always had a beard. Not a long one, just a short scruffy one. I would endlessly beg him to shave it all off so I could see him barefaced just once. He would tell me no, that he looked better with it and didn’t want to look like “a baby.” 

    So I would still nag him a little, knowing he wouldn’t. Then last Halloween we were dressing up as Cosmo and Wanda from Fairly Odd Parents and I joked that he had to shave because Cosmo doesn’t have a beard. And he told me no for the millionth time. Then he surprised me by showing up clean shaven! Just for me. I thought that was the cutest thing ever.

    But the biggest surprise was that I definitely prefer him with his short scruff! 

    On the other hand, if I’m out of town he lets it grow out of control bushy and I HATE it. I always tell him to shave before I get home hahah. A longer beard doesn’t flatter him as much but he likes it. He keeps it trimmed for me. =)

    DH was cleanshaven when I met him, but he grew out his facial hair as our relationship progressed! I think he’s adorable either way.

    LOVE beards. Can’t get enough of it. I convinced FH to grow one when we first met and he’s kept it ever since – he says it would feel too weird to be clean shaven now.

    I generally do but it totally depends on the person. My (fuzzy, part Portuguese) SO usually has a few day’s stubble–long enough that it doesn’t sandpaper my chin when we kiss! He curently has a pretty thick beard and I like it on him. He keeps his neck and cheekbones shaved and trims and conditions his beard. An acquaintance has been trying to grow his facial hair out for almost the same amount of time and has a tragic, patchy Amish chinstrap situation. Not a good look In My Humble Opinion.

    Currently the beard is a bit long (he needs a tirm) but I love it!  I got him a (very) expensive beard grooming kit and he loves it! Once he gets it trimmed and shaped up it’ll look even better!  I think i’d cry if he went baby face. 🙁

    I definitely prefer facial hair on my DH- he’s only been clean-shaven on a few occasions in the 4+ years we have been together, and although it’s not terrible on him, it definitely makes him look a lot less mature (he could probably pass for high-schooler, and he’s 27! Haha).  

    At times his facial hair choices haven’t been the sexiest (he did mutton chops when we first started dating, and I was so relieved when he had to get rid of them for work.  Then when he got a different job that only allowed moustaches, he grew one of those and neither of us really liked it much haha). For the past couple of years, though, he’s had either a beard (which he wore for our wedding) or a goatee, and we are both big fans of it 🙂

    DH had facial hair when I met him, so I never had an issue with it. He did shave it once, and only once, while we were married. Neither of us liked it, and he started growing it back the moment it was gone. He’s had a goatee or beard (well-trimmed with his neck shaved) ever since.

    My SO has a full beard and it looks amazing! Without it he had such a baby face, the beard ages him up a little bit (which is good, since he’s a year younger than me)


    I’ve known plenty of people who had really bad beards or goatees and we all tried to get them to shave, but I would never want my SO to shave. I think it depends on your facial structure, my SO has a very strong chin so it looks good on him.
