    No Jay, I didn’t even have to shave till I was well out of High School, lol. Then, through 13 years of marriage, I did the full beard every winter, and trimmed it to a goatee for the summer. Then I went clean shaven the day my divorce was final. I guess I just needed a change. Then a couple of years later, i just looked at myself in the mirror, and decided I liked the beard better, and I have had it ever since. But out of the last 20 years, I have only been clean shaven for a couple of years.

    so you went from fresh face cherub high school boy to mountainous muff of face hair rather quickly?

    you just gave hope to every single kid who grows 4 hairs and calls it a beard.

    yeah, id say between the ages of 19 and 20 or 21 i went from a hairless on face, back, chest, and stomach to a full beard, and a fairly hairy chest and even back. And shoulders, lol. I get a lot of shit when I let the beard grow out a little too long and bushy every ever now and then, my GF gripes about it daily, but fuck it, I do what I want. I might do the smooth face thing again, or the goatee at some point. But it will be when I want. People hinting that I should trim it or shave it has the opposit effect that they are going for. At one point I shaved it in the summer cause the ex-wife wanted me too, and kept it short for the same reason. Never again.
