The subject on the radio this morning whilst we were driving into town to pick up our newly purchased desk was Beards.
Now that we’re back home and I’ve had a chance to look it up, apparently
“43% of women would not date a man with facial hair” (source)
Although the above survey wasn’t what was actually being discussed, I find this rather sad as bearded or not, it’s not the wrapping that counts but what’s inside.
I admit as a child I would not kiss my ‘hedgehog’ Dad goodnight if he hadn’t shaved, but we would still have hugs and that’s what mattered.
I don’t actually like beards, but if I met a guy who already had one and I liked him, it wouldn’t matter. It’s the growing of one that puts me off, rough and bristly, but once adorning the chin in its full glory, soft and silky. Well, the ones I knew anyway.
As for the hairiness of the man denoting the manliness of the man, not in my book.
Some of the sexiest men are bald (Patrick Stewart, Jason Stratham, Vin Diesel (though it’s his lazy smile that gets me), Dwayne Johnson aka The Rock if you like hunk as well and from yesteryear, Yul Brunner).
I’ve got a photo of Hubby with a beard, and didn’t recognise him, especially as his chin was obscured by a ginger ‘duvet’.
I had more hair on my legs than my ex-husband could grow on his face, whereas the ex partner would grow one every winter and shave it off in the spring. He suited it either way.
My BIL had a full thick black beard and I never noticed when he shaved it off, though I knew there was something different about him. How sad is that????
” 13 per cent of men in Britain – which equates to four million – admitting to feeling self-conscious about their inability to grow a full beard, with a further eight per cent – or 2.6 million – unable to grow facial hair at all. ”
So guys, is your chin follically challenged?
The last thing I heard on the matter was that there is help at hand by means of transplants. Yes, they take follicles from your head and transplant them in your face…………… at a cost of around five grand!
Would you spend that kind of money if you were single knowing that according to the above statistic only 57% of women would give you a chance?
