    I saw this picture today and it really evoked some thought processes...

    I don't know why but this is the look i would love to have. I am not near this in shape or have such an awesome beard. You don't see many young men with such a look. I guess it is a bit of envy, really makes me strive to better my health. I really like the trimmed hairy chest with a lean body.

    I was also talking to some of my friends and we feel that not enough young men (25-40) sport facial hair. I was surprised by the number of ladies who really dig facial hair. Men are generally impressed and show interest in very open and supportive ways, which really caught me off guard. I take it as a changing in the outlook on the different looks. Facial hair(and body hair) has received a bum rap the last few decades. We did agree that the stubble facial hair should not count as it isn't a real commitment to a look. You would be surprised what a different look the same guy could have with a stubble beard or a full beard. What is your take?

    Anyway...

    It got me thinking about the different looks for which people strive...

    What is your look or the look you desire? (desire = look of person you wish to be with and/or look you wish you displayed)

    you're right about the facial hair -- when I sport a goatee, people seem to more aggressively show their interest

    Hairy! you've got to get out more. See the world. This guy looks like an inmate from an asylum who had a lot of time to work out in isolation.

    If you looked like this you would definitely have a lot of solitude & privacy!

    In many places, depending on schedule
    beards.org is pretty old and still running.

    OT: that guy on the pic looks photoshopped, his body proportionally smaller than his head, at least to me. Real or not, his body is very well defined, but you must also think that to have that definition level, you must be dehydrated, which what you do in bodybuilding before competitions, your skin goes thin as paper.

    Since a couple of months i have been on and off with a full beard, thn i take the mustache out and regret and let it grow and so on.
    Having a beard is actually hard, i remember the longest uninterrupted beard i sported was like 10 years ago for half a year. Right now, i don't if i will continue, but it takes real effort not to use the trimmer and then philipshave!

    Most girls prefer shaved guys, but most guys encourage their fellow men to grow one :confused:
    I did notice women (strangers) smiling more at me when with full beard than with the shaved look. Gils that i actually know areof the opinion a beard hides your face, therefore if you are ugly, it is a good option, but if you are good looking is a waste (in their opinion).

    Just uploaded an example of a couple of weeks back (right now i am without mustache, though)

    I really wish I could get the front of my hair to be silver/white instead of blonde (apparently, if they try to bleach it anymore, it's liable to come off), and the rest of my hair to be black, instead of brown.

    Aside from that, I'm content with my looks, save I've got to get in better shape, loose some weight I've picked up. Shattered my ankle last year, and put on more weight while bedridden than I prefer.

    As for the sort of look I desire, I really like martial artist type muscle tone. Not big and bulky, just toned. I also looooove black hair. I like goatees a lot. I find a touch of facial hair really adds a lot of texture to a guy's face. I don't like full beards, though.

    *chuckles* For note, I never followed X-men when I was younger, and I did my hair like this before the movie came out. While I nonetheless obtained the nickname "Rogue" in highschool (and subsequently used it when I got a job as an adult massage attendant), I was not aware that hairstyle was "taken" at the time of acquisition :p

    I got it for a whole different reason. Just commenting >.> I've gotten accused of being obsessed with Rogue from X-men way too much :p

    I am attracted to scrawny guys and find myself wishing I had a naturally scrawny build. I've accepted the fact that I have a healthy average-sized build, but it's not what I'm drawn to in men, and it's not my ideal for myself either. I wish I had more discipline when it came to working out.

    As far as facial hair on men, goatees have caused me to write off many otherwise handsome guys. They are an absolute dealbreaker for me. I prefer all or nothing - a full beard, or clean-shaven. None of this selective facial hair business for me.

    Hey, I didn't say that I wanted to get some gnarly-looking-carrot-women...but I'm 100 % sure that that guy gets more action than me. Besides I was just joking, I don't really want to look like the biggest douchebag on Earth.

    I think the guy who is your icon is VERY HOT!

    I used to have a long full untrimmed beard and I loved it and if I could look that way all the time I would.

    I have had a wide variety of facial hair styles and they all look good on me.

    I'm not muscular but I'm OK with having a runner/swimmer's build for my body type.

    I definite follow suit here. I have groomed myself to look like that which I am attracted to - goatee and flattop.

    I desire no facial hair on myself so I'm grateful I don't have much facial hair to shave off but a small mustache that doesn't even meet in the middle that I keep completely shaven off on a nightly basis whether there's actually anything to shave on my face or not. I shave my sideburns as well.

    I typically don't like facial hair or body hair on other guys and hated and was turned off by it when I was younger. As I've gotten older, I've become way more accepting of it on other men WHEN IT WORKS. Sometimes I even find myself preferring it on select individuals b/c they just look odd without it.

    For the most part though: No hair. Especially on skinny men. Works better on muscly men SOMETIMES.
