Your preference. It's the person that you will kiss that u should be asking. My partner likes to be clean shaven, as do I coz it's nice appearance and to kiss :-) mwah
Well then grow it and see how u go. Then u will know how it feels and if and when u want to go back to none :-)
You answered your own question, so keep it long! You can't please everyone , so please yourself !

If it's longer than a half inch it's a hobo beard. Period.
