    Right now I'm growing out my stubble.

    A full on beard takes a while to grow, but a little bit of stubble on a man makes him look more manly in my opinion, and is what separates him from a prepubescent boy. Plus, it is fun to see the reaction of your woman when the stubbles tickle her soft, smooth feminine skin.

    I have not shaved since I discovered my wife's

    adulterous relationship last week. When she said she wanted to divorce and trash our almost 30 year marriage, I just went into .. I don't know what I'm in, frankly. I think I should be in a mental institution b/c I'm going nuts. I feel very bad about myself. I know I should not...

    Long Chin Beard

    I am starting a long chin beard. I started about 2 or 3 weeks ago. and I want to get it long enough to braid and put beads in it.  in the time since I started, it has grown about 1cm down from my chin, how long will it take to get long?

    My beard is looking great!

    It's getting way thick and is working on 1.5cm long. I LOVE having a beard and should have grown it years ago! šŸ˜†

    It's Time...

    The last time I had a beard, it was a goatee that I've been nurturing for 9 months. Then I took a job at a company which had a strict code about facial hair. I had to shave it off... I've been working for this company 6 months. First, I climbed their little career ladder, but...

    Why I Grew a Beard

     The weekend following Valentines Day, I sank into a deep depression. It was unlike me - a jovial, joking sort; the guy who makes everyone at work laugh. I didn't shave that morning, but no one said much except, "You look like death warmed over." There's nothing...

    I've never really gone past a week without

    shaving so i decided to grow one and see if it suits me and whether i actually like having a beard. After a few months now i''ve gotten used to it and i think it suits me. I might keep it for awhile.

    A Good Change

    This isn't my first beard, but I always enjoy having one. Every time I think about it, though, I can't help wonder why beards aren't the norm among men rather than the exception. Logically, it seems much more natural for a guy to let his facial hair grow than not to. Anybody else...

    So I thought about growing a beard

    for some time now, do girls find beards attractive? I'm thinking about just keeping the 'stubble' look instead of the 'baby face' look that I've had for so many years now.. So girls what do you think? What's your opinion of men with beards of having stubble? Un/Attractive...

    Because I Can!

    I have always liked the idea of growing a beard, but had thought most women would nae like me in a beard. Now at my age I think it is safe tae assume tha a beard will neither help or hurt my chances.

    This is week 3. Back in November,

    I tried to grow it out but failed. After 3 1/2-4 weeks, the itching became unbearable and I took the straight razor to it lol. This time I'm going to try to push through it and go a total of 8 weeks before I trim it up.
