@Achire@Squid_07 I would probably be a little turned-off if a woman had legs as hairy as mine, but I also get that shaving is a hassle and it would probably take a while before reaching that noticeable of a point. Of course, I'd shave or otherwise remove hair from my legs or chest or even go bald if that's what the woman in my life found attractive, but that hasn't been an issue so far.
@parodymandotcom My wife loves all the body hair except the facial hair.. haha.. I still grow a beard most of the time, but she gets very happy when I decide to shave every now and then! I was in the Army when we met, so she fell in love with the clean shaven version of me. haha
@parodymandotcom I shaved once 13 years ago and recoiled in disgust from the mirror. My wife asked me to never do it again. Even my coworker told me the next day, "Wow, so that's why you don't shave." I never shaved again.
My husband had a beard when we met. He started growing this beard the day after he graduated from high school. Kept it nice and trimmed up, never the long scraggly duck dork beard.
Fifteen years into marriage, I started to bug him about what he looks like without it. I threatened to have it shaved off if he died before me and send him to his reward clean shaven, just so I could see what he looked like without.
About seven years ago he shaved it off. I wanted it back on. Right now. And I haven't bothered him about it since.
Actually, not to be contrarian, but please do sell one. Mine is 10 years old and the battery is gone. And one of the things I like about civilization is the ability to remove all facial hair except for some sexy stubble. Beards are good for bird nests and storing food for later I guess...
@jqubed I'm in agreeance with the guy who said this: "I have permanent stubble. I don't work hard at it, I just hate shaving and my beard trimmer shaves it down to short stubble when used. So every few days, I buzz my beard down to stubble and start over. I spent 2.5 minutes trimming my facial hair ever few days. If anything, it's all the suckers shaving every day that are the fools wasting time carefully cultivating their look. Don't knock me because I'm lazy! Shaving fucking sucks."
My wife actually likes both the nicely-trimmed goatee and the scruffy, haven't shaved in a day or two or three, look. She didn't seem to mind me clan-shaven either. But from the beginning, she's blessed and celebrated my not shaving Friday-Sunday. My wife is the awesomest.
But, yeah, I don't get it, because I have the facial (and, yes, the ear and nose) hair, and because I have the facial hair, I do want meh to offer a trimmer--honestly, anywhere in the range of a basic nose hair to a sophisticated 'stache keeper.
And while we're at it, I wouldn't mind a twofer, because then, for instance, one can be dedicated to the 'scaping.
@JonT Nice. So hey, btw, I'm surely not the only one who stumbles over being part of "the clan." My wife is particularly sensitive to these issues. I comfort myself with the fact that our favorite wartime assault troops are men of color on their defense-destroying beasts.
@joelmw Chance of catching a virus / bacteria from your wife: > 0%. Chance of catching a virus of bacteria from a dog? close enough to zero to be 0%. This is why I let the dogs lick my plate before I put it in the dishwasher, but I wouldn't let a human do that. Enjoy that thought the next time you eat out, especially if it's a buffet...
@Headly This is the dilemma of the social media generation. Happily, though I'm an active participant, it's probably wrong to consider it my generation. I'm glad that's something for the kids to work out. Maybe it'll keep 'em out of trouble. Anyway, it'll build character, I'm sure.
My girlfriend has made it extremely clear that I am only to shave my beard if/when I want us to break up. She does whine at me if I let it get too long.
My beard trimmer is about seven or eight years old and its medium length moustache attachment thing cracked about a year ago and now falls off. Also, the battery doesn't hold a charge, though the trimmer works fine when plugged into the charger.
I guess I could get another medium length thing but a whole new trimmer at meh pricing (VMP here) would probably cost less than a replacement thingy with shipping.
