I have never been into clean shaving as it makes me look young, as a result I have been the proud owner of groomed stubble from the ages of 17-24. I have always said to myself that just once I would like to grow a full beard, even if it looks terrible , just for the satisfaction of having done it. I have been growing it since January the 1st and feel it has finally reached a length I deem worthy of "full beard" status. I love it!
My lady is not so keen. Her mother is not so keen. Everyone else seems to react really positively.
Now I never want to get rid of it, I feel more masculine, look more mature...plus as weird as it sounds....its quite fun to grow and maintain your face in a new and interesting way.
I shall endeavour to find a before and after photograph assuming I can find a camera to take the "after" shot. Also assuming there is any interest in this topic whatsoever.
SO OT.....Who are the beard growers among you??
How long??? Why??? Styled/shaggy???
How is it received by others??
Lastly a call to post pictures for those of you are brave/suitably hairy enough!!!
