I'm a big fan of goatees on guys with either a bald head or an extremely close crew cut. DH has the crew cut with a goatee but changes it up sometimes. Sometimes it's a full goatee, sometimes its a really short fu manchu style with just a bit at the point of his chin.

And when he has a day or so's worth of stubble on the rest of his face? Yummy! LOL

hmmm. I agree w other posters, it really depends on the face, how much facial hair - and how well groomed. I don't mind a mustache, not a big fan of beards, and stubble doesn't do a thing for me.

There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.

I prefer a bit of facial hair, a goatee or a soul patch, but not Duck Dynasty type beards! Clean shaven is fine too.

I think that's true partly because it's just hardwired into our brains. Think of how things were back in the early days of humanity. Males without facial hair were generally underage and, therefore, it was taboo to think of them as sexually attractive.

So, a man is showcasing his physical maturity by wearing some stubble, thus making him desirable to women.

I like a man with some stubble, providing that it looks good on him. The one thing I find as a complete turn-off though is a full, long beard. I don't like getting a mouthful of hair every time I kiss him LOL.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog:

I like clean shaven or just a touch of stubble.

I cannot do anymore than that. It freaks me out..... I HATE body hair

I like facial hair and always have.
Hubby has a goat-tee(beard in the winter) and I love it, every time he gets mad at it and wants to shave it off I talk him out of it. (he looks about 14 without the facial hair)

Absolutely no facial hair! Eww

Maybe it has something to do with the fact I was raised as a Military Brat and always lived on base so men w/facial hair were non-existent.

hubby had a goatee when I met him, I made him get rid of it quickly and a few years later he decided what the heck and shaved his head too. I'm happy!

I've played around with mustaches and beards and I can say from personal experience I aint doing that permanent 5 day stubble thing! That's when it gets to really irritating me and I either have to shave it off or grit my teeth for another week of itching.

Anyway, hate shaving daily but I also found it's every bit as much work to keep a neatly trimmed beard which also involves the hated shaving. What I liked most was the grizzly Adams beard but women and children ran away screaming.

My Dad has had a beard as long as I can remember. He has a baby face so he kinda needs it. LOL!

Personally I prefer no facial hair.

It depends on the individual man for me, but I don't think I've ever really liked anything more than long stubble when it comes to facial hair. Clean shaven is always nice. Also, goatees are a turn-off for me, but I'm not sure why.

Either way, beards are tickly!
