    Ive been reading some threads in here about people having confidence issues or whatnot. Almost all these threads have woman responding you would be hotter if you shaved, or i wouldn't even look at a guy who has facial hair. Why is this such a big turn off? also are we talking about stubble here, grown out beards or what?

    I believe the idea, that a clean shaven look, gives off an aura confidence + strong sense of maturity. some women flock to that look, not all. I myself have yet to date someone that didn't like my beard, although I keep it very trim and for an indian I think I look better with it, thats just me.:bigthumb:

    But you never know, I say shave it off and keep it clean shaven and see if that ups your chance, it really depends on the demographic and where you are residing. Just because someone says it works for them on here, doesn't necessarily means that it works with everyone. Everyone has their own style and that also goes with facial hair and how you upkeep yourself.

    Confidence is a big key in all of this, sometimes an over grown beard shows a lack of confidence and sense of non-style and/or dirtyness. So if you have beard/goatee/mustache, keep it trim and cleaned up, otherwise shave it off and see how that fairs for you.

    i finally got my bf to have a goatee. :bowdown: :bowdown:


    i think the typical replies are to unkempt facial hair and general scruffiness, or stuff that is just too thin to pull off properly so it looks odd and shaggy.



    beards aren't an excuse to stop grooming.

    I actually always hated facial hair on men until my current. But, as someone said earlier, a lot of men have really scraggly/bad facial hair

    Depends on who you ask. I dislike facial or much body hair at all. I have a friend who would probably jump on Bigfoot. The more hair the better for her.

    I do agree that grooming has a lot to do with it.

    Whenever I grow a goatee, people compliment me on it. Right now I have an actual beard, and last night I had 4 or more women tell me its sexy. Some people look good with facial hair, some don't. Some women like facial hair, some don't.

    I've never had any woman complain about my stubble, I never clean shave...

    I think it has to do with cleanliness. Women like men who are clean. Some men can grow clean looking facial hair, others can't. I'm one of those people who can't...so I don't even try. Although, nine times out of ten, I think that clean-shaven is a better approach.

    I've always loved facial hair...and a lot of times I've asked my bf's to grow theirs out. However, from everything I've gathered from other women they hate facial hair for many reasons. Sometimes it just hurts against their skin. Sometimes facial hair just looks silly on some guys. And most girls just like a clean shaven man because it's the hot look :dunno:

    A lot of guys just look stupid with it. Mustaches are just nasty looking and beards are for old men. Some guys look good with a goatee but that's it. The main reason I don't like it though is for kissing. Kissing with stubble is sooo painful and even if the hair is grown out it still doesn't feel anywhere near as good as it would if it was smooth.

    This response, in combination with the one before it, is the Catch 22 of facial hair.

    If you can rock an even 5-o-clock shadow - a lot of women, younger in particular, will love the look.

    BUT, it WILL be rough to kiss.


    My thought is that it's good for one nighters, flings, etc...it sort of means an independence, a rogue-ness...which is also a turn on for a lot of women....but then it's rough....

    Idk about facial hair, but im on a two-day shave schedule and i can only shave down because of how sensitive my skin is. If i go against the grain i only get irritation. So i guess i'm kinda scruffy. I think i pull it off well though.

    I love scruffiness and facial hair is a total turn on! Most of my men have had it. I prefer it.

    Indeed, I think I look 100% better with a van dyke (goatee and moustache) than clean shaven, and I keep it short, trim it probably once a week. I also think I rock the shaved head.

    I :bowdown: beards, but they have to be well-kept, or just stubble.

    It's the total opposite for me. Facial hair turns me on. In fact, those are the only guys that grab hold of my attention now..
