An incredibly presumptious thread, which I created at the suggestion of JJ (Jerry Johnson). Please feel free to make this as silly as you like.
And for the record — yes, I advise men who want to grow facial hair to grow it out, baby!
I have a perpetual four days worth of stubble. Is that bad?
Don’t shave it. Eventually it will grow the way you want it to. The first time you grow a beard it always looks a little scruffy for a bit. Carry on, you manly man! Growing a beard requires courage and fortitude.
I’m not trying to grow a beard, I’ve just had four days worth of Indiana Jones-like stubble for the last five years. (I trim, never shave).
Does my lack of facial hair make me less of a man than Anonymouse?
I believe I am in my right to answer that: yes. Yes it does.
No, but your questioning of it does.
All I wanted to know is if I should go with mustache or beard. It’s a simple question that has nothing to do with heteronormativity, gay subtext, shaven legs, or Jesus Christ. It’s a purely aesthetic query.
Do you want to grow facial hair to compensate for the hair you’re losing up top?
@Anonymouse — Ah, you enjoy the stubble. Ok then, stubble on! Just don’t do the Don Johnson in Miami Vice look. Unless of course, you are into that — which would surprise me. Indiana Jones style however is cute and rugged.
@SP — no, you are Asian. Whole different thing.
@Jerry — this is a normal reason to grow or not grow facial hair. Why not? Men have more options here than girls do. Go for it. It’ll be nice not to have to shave, at least a lot of guys enjoy that for a bit.
Jerry didn’t answer my question.
He said no, unless you use this as a basis for judging your manhood.
No, the other one about his thinning hair and all the insecurities it’s caused him.
This is what ballooning out of control looks like.
Lol! I love that expression.
I’m starting to feel horrified as I am realizing that this thread has the potential to bring in some sparring…
Can I have some juice?
You can have some of my juice if no one else is willing to offer (Ha-Ha-Ha, classic pun!!!).
I mean wow RUS, you’re just too easy sometimes (double pun!!1). You’re just begging for it (third time’s the charm!).
I’m thinking of growing a spade beard. What do you think?
Here’s a visual:
what on earth is this ‘motherly advice’? and why does jerry need it? anyone with enough taste to post that yummy video clearly has enough sense to decide whether to continue the daily manly sacrifice of emasculation that is shaving or instead to start going for grizzly bear impressions…
facial hair is useful for identifying the right person opposite you to scream ‘save me save me’ at if the lights go out unexpectedly….
what happened with the mustache war between dim and risselada? very disappointing…
Very nice. Do it!
There was a mustache war? Where, where?
growin a beard has never been an issue for me but I recently shaved it all off and actually liked the way I looked without it. now, it’s growing back in and I couldn’t be happier. shaving is like age regression for me: I go from 24 to 18 in a matter of five minutes.
well it was mooted in a cup thread somewhere i think, but it never took off, despite a few pictorial overtures from riss…maybe we could incite another one? (like in this hungarian western i keep meaning to watch)
Kyool! What I’d really like to see is actual pictures of them growing mustaches. And frowning.
The guy above sure has his hat pulled down too far, lol! His face kinda reminds me of Uncle Leo in Seinfeld. Hello?
Odil, should guys always pick up the dinner check on the first date with a girl? If so, why?
“Uncle Leo in Seinfeld”
good grief. you’re right.
Um… I don’t know, Nino. I started dating the person I ended up marrying when I was 19 and we were both still in college. Neither of us had much money so we used to always split, though I don’t remember the first dinner. Likely it was at a diner, lol!
Best to get an idea of what kind of girl she is. Some are a bit traditional, some pretend not to be but really are. This is not an easy question to answer… I guess it’s a nice thing to do on a first date, but if you’re not made of money and you plan on seeing one another afterward, and she’s traditional even though she earns a living, you might be expected to play the paternal role always. It depends on what you believe and what she believes about all that… I suppose you could discuss it?
Others, help me out here…
Why should I continue to be a nice guy?
Is that a question? lol
The answer is: Why ask why?
