    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.

    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...

    Scratching

    My girlfriend likes to scratch my beard. It feels so good. All the guys with women who want you to be shaven clean 24/7 are missing out.

    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.

    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 in the military and beards are against

    Guys Who Look Like Christ Are Sexy!

    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.

    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...

    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...

    I Want Fur On My Face!

    So that's why I'm waiting for more fur to appear on my face. I can't grow real beard yet. If I let it grow I would just get long black hairs here and there on my skin. It would look extremely weird. I am impatiently waiting for more beard hormones to kick in. I think beard would...
