I Think Real Men Grow Beards

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 276 People

    Sure Do!

    Of course we do, only men can grow them, not women or kids.  OOPS, I have seen several women who do have beards.  So I guess I have to change that to mostly men do. :-) The pict looks a lot like me!

    I'm A Real Man; I'm Growing A Beard

    I've had one most of my life - even when you figure in the time I was too young to grow one. LOLAs a college student, once I left the ROTC I started my beard. If I remember correctly, my first two wives wed me with the beard. I know the second one was shocked when I shaved it off...

    This year I've grown another beard,

    but I think I'll shave it off soon. The art of a clean shave is just as manly as the art of beard maintenance.

    Beard Me!

    If I was a guy, I definitely would grow a beard! I'm actually debating getting one now, but I'm sure the management at work will have something to say about it and how it doesn't follow the proper dress code for a woman. Oh well, what do they know?...I mean there not real men...

    Never Know What To Do About Beards

    I was actually thinking of growing a beard, and I think that beards can look great. The problem is, I am not sure how much I can dedicate to the process. It takes really long. Then when I get tired of it, I shave it off and begin to miss it. That is the sad part, because I have...

    Not In The Cards

    I would love to be able to put on some facial hair from time to time.  I'm blonde and nordic, so whenever I've tried it, the hair is barely visible on some parts of my face, and doesn't grow at all on others.  My father could grow a full beard in a freakin' weekend...

    I love when a man has a beard.

    Any body hair for the most part. It's so erotic, and manly it's what I love most about being gay. The feel of a man who knows what he's doing with his beard when he's eating me out is beyond orgasmic! I'd chose a man with body hair and a full beard over Channing Tatum any day.

    Beard

    I used to have a very long wild beard to go with my long hair. I looked like that as a form of self protection delivering mail on foot in the worst parts of Detroit. I still had guns pulled on me and stuff but it was far less than when I was clean shaved.

    Real Men Sport Facial Hair

    I think all men should have beards and mustaches. It makes them look more like men. A clean shaven man looks like a little boy to me no matter what his story. If a man can not grow a beard or mustache I won't even date him.
