Interesting response Jon. The ideal that men are growing beards to attract females is a ridiculous notion. And so true, if that's why you've grown one then it's best to get out of it right now. I did have one for a good 2 years but after several visits to barbers and advice from a few I decided it wasn't really working for me. So now I'm just at stubble. Like you say, leave it to the expert.

Great post.
