The top picture looks about 10 years older than the bottom picture. So go with unbearded.

Asher once had a beard, but dumped the bitch for a bloke...

Greg W
15-07-2005, 13:11:27
Nah, they're both recent pics. Tho I blurred the second one to make it look as blurry as the first one. Damn camera phones...

I don't think I'd want to see a picture of Greg's bottom at any age.

Does Beta have a beard?

I'm a firm believer you should never have more hair on your face than on your head. Unless you're a super tough guy or something.

Greg W
15-07-2005, 13:27:22
I could shave daily and still have more hair on my face than my head though...

Thats very true. I was always told never to trust a man (or woman) with a beard.

Funko

That saying just came about so people could say don't trust K_G in a more roundabout way. :hmm:

If you want to look an adult male, go with the beard.

If you're trying to emulate a little boy, shave it off.

It's up to you.

Greg W
15-07-2005, 13:45:55
Nah, my head glows regardless.

He's got years and years to look like an old man. Better to look like a young man now while he can and then look like an old man when he actually is one. Or something.

no I dont. Are you thinking of MDA?

Definately dont go with the beard - it makes you look like you compensating for the lack of hair elsewhere.

Also it totally hides your jaw line which makes you look like you have no neck

Vincent
15-07-2005, 14:16:51

No beard...can't afford it being single...you need every advantage you can get.

Can someone Photoshop him a goatee so we can see if that is better? Sometimes a goatee looks better on a bald guy than no beard at all. (I should know).

Greg W
16-07-2005, 01:05:44
Me, with goatee, and much shorter hair and shorter facial hair (I did post this a few months ago, general consensus was I looked like a serial killer or paedophile)...

I think you should ditch the facial hair and go 'Jean Luc Picard' ;)

Yes, I had considered that too. Bit cold at the moment though, it's dropped to below 15 degrees the other day! :eek:

Greg W

Last I checked, the temperature in either is fucking cold, so does it matter? I figured all the Eurotwats would understand better if I put it in their terms.

I am curious who the three (one was my dummy vote) people who voted keep it were. They haven't spoken up yet.

The hair looks better short I think. Shave your head, lose the beard and stop worrying.

Walrus Feeder
16-07-2005, 03:12:25
If you are about to get a new passport, or indeed about to go to America, I would strongly suggest shaving the beard off, 'coz the immigration officials will think you'll look like a terrorist and will hope you're not from Leeds!

Oerdin

i dislike facial hair cause it hurts ..when my bf kisses me and he's got stubble..it's painful.

Oerdin
17-07-2005, 05:51:32
I have yet to meet a girl who does like facial hair. When I had a beard my ex-girlfriend briefly told me she liked it but with in a week she confessed the truth to me. She hated it and just told me she liked it because she wanted me to be happy.

Guy would never do this lying to keep their significant other happy.

devilmunchkin
17-07-2005, 07:27:02
hehehe..i don't lie about it. i tell him straight out he looks too scruffy...
he's kinda like homer simpson though in that a few hours after he shaves..it's back. i so want to try nairing his face and see if that works..but alas..he won't let me. :(

Greg W
17-07-2005, 07:32:35
That's the thing. If I shave it off, I have stubble about 3 hours after I shave. So any girl that I kissed would constantly suffer from beard rash. When it's longer, I've been told that you can barely tell that it's there.

So, clean shaven and hurts to kiss...

Or...

Bearded and nice to kiss (in terms of no beard rash anyway).

Having said all that, I am at the very least going to trim it. It's almost getting to the stage where it looks like I half swallowed a wombat. However I do want to try the Kojac look at some stage, which will require it to all come off. Spring though at least...

Well, anyway, the next time you grow a beard, Greg, just keep it trimmed short. Giving it a quick once-over every week makes mine look well-groomed, professional and touchable. :coolgrin:

17-07-2005, 23:28:03
Wow, look at that shine!

LoC tells me if I shave my beard off, she'll cut her hair short. She knows I don't want her to do that, so we're at a stalemate. The only exception is when I shave it off over Thanksgiving every year, for no apparent reason whatsoever.
