    That's so odd, haha.

    Here's why, so some women say they like beards (I believe them all on here) and I'm sure it's true, but I had a pretty beard going on with my gf of 1.5 years. I find out after 2 years (after we broke up) she prefered shaved, or a shaved with a short goatee!

    Like what?? Why didn't she say something? I wouldn't have cared (I may not have given up the beard early on), I shave sometimes and if that's what my girlfriend prefers, it's not like she's asking to dress me up like a Ken doll or something. I mean, I've told gfs I prefer her to keep her hair straight.

    I dunno, maybe she was scared of appearing controlling. I guess I could see that, but I was kinda shocked after all those many bearded months together.

    Well, my boyfriend is sitting right here, and he's emphatic that women should share those sorts of opinions, too. But I often hesitate because I don't want to either come off as a nag or turn it into making him choose between what he likes and what I like. Plus, I don't really see my boyfriend's facial hair as having a huge impact on our relationship. If he grew it out to a length that was substantially unpleasant to me, I would talk to him about it. But otherwise I have to admit it doesn't seem worth sharing.

    Actually I think there might also be some sense on my part that I shouldn't try to "change him", even if I wanted to.

    From Urban Dictionary:

    Unix beard
    Facial hair that all Unix experts are mysteriously compelled to grow. The length, bushiness, and unkemptness of the Unix beard are all directly proportional to the owner's expertise. Having a Unix beard is a great way to ensure that you never get laid.

    Or maybe she was just respecting your choices instead of going down the oh so familiar route of asking for change (to suit ourselves) and withholding love as a way to manipulate a partner. Sounds like you were a lucky man too.

    Well, the results are in guys 92% of women will either love or be neutral to your desire to wear a beard. The other 8% you probably don't want to date anyway.*

    Depends on your niche, I'm more about the niche that doesn't favor facial hair much.

    It doesn't look good on everyone but I tend to like them.

    I've been trying to talk my SO into trying one because I think it would look really good on him, but he refuses to go through the temporary itchy stubble phase that would be the price to pay.

    It's a rite of passage.

    I haven't shaved in 5 weeks & it's quite thick atm.

    Personally I think it looks okay but only coz I'm not being lazy. I used to have a big beard that looked awesome but it didn't come across importantly unless I was being a super serious man.

    So the beard is great given a strong attitude with it.
