    My Beard

    I have had a beard or goatee since before I met my wife.  It has been long, to the middle of my chest, close cropped and everywhere inbetween. My wife kids have only seen pictures of me without it, never in person.  I started growing my beard in high school...

    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.

    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.

    Dedicated To... You Know Who You Are.

    I really love my beard.  I've had it a LOT longer than I was without it.  It keeps me warm in the winter, and gives me shade in the summer.  It's been a pert of me since I was 17.  It's so much of my identity that there are very few people in my life who have...

    I just recently lost a large portion of my

    beard do to a fire. Shaving the rest almost brought me to tears. In a world where it is acceptable for men to look more and more feminine with each passing year, I rely on my beard to show that I am full of testosterone, like a man should be. Without it, I am naked. I would...

    I have recently decided to grow a beard again after years of being clean shaven..it's coming in alright..it's got an orange tinge to it..which is kind of strange since I don't have any other orange hair.

    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...

    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...
