    I Certainly Love Mine.

    I love my beard. I've had one since the mid '80's and I intend to keep it. Mine doesn't grow wild: I keep it trimmed neatly once a week, I like the crisp look and it looks good with my buzz cut.My take is that beards do, indeed, reflect a certain level of masculinity. Our culture...

    its kinda sad that people dont respect it.

    .. you keep the beard to tell people not to play with you... but everytime I need the situation to be civil someone disobeys the beard...

    I love to feel my beard.

    I love stroking it and the feel of it. It's quite soothing. However, since my beard is still short (about 1.5cm) it gets messed up easily if I feel it too much. I then have to brush it out, which also feels good. I haven't discovered a downside to having a beard yet.

    Convenient

    I trim it once every three weeks, and just fix the outlines (neck and cheeks) once every ten days maybe.It's a lot more convenient, and all the girls I've been with so far love it.

    My Beard Story

    I've had a beard since 1981, although it's gone through various manifestations, and I've even shaved it a couple of times. When I have shaved, once I get over the disappointment that I don't look like Brad Pitt underneath it all, I get on with re-growing my hirsute appendage. I...
