    I found myself looking at my step-father today and found myself thinking about his moustache. I realized just how silly the whole concept of it is. It's hair that sits on the upper lip. Somehow I couldn't picture him without it. He's had since he he was in his 20's, a lot longer that I've known him. It's almost a part of him.

    I have a full beard myself, but for some reason I don't find that concept as silly as just having a moustache. Not to say that moustaches are silly, just the idea of them really. I've been considering shaving off my beard and leaving only my moustache for a while. Doubt I'll do it, because I like my beard. It was just a thought I have.

    Anyone else have a moustache? Anyone else agree with me?

    I hate moustaches. I also hate those little patches underneath the lip that guys sometimes have. Goatees in general I dislike, though there are some guys who look better with them. I like a little stubble like that cowboy who's been out on the range for a few days look, but not a full beard. That's usually the look I've got... really! I have a trimmer I use to trim it so it looks like that. Am I weird, or do other guys do that?

    Are you weird, or is the act weird? I know other people that do that, but I still think it's a little weird to do. But whatever you like I say. I've had a beard since I was 17.

    Since you were 17! Wow! I still wasn't shaving every day when I was 22! I was able to grow sideburns I think when I was 21... anyway, I think part of the reason I do it, besides the fact that I think it looks sexy (did I just say that about myself?) is that I also hate shaving, so I can do this once a week instead of shaving every day.

    Lots of fashion things seem pretty silly if you look at them long enough...

    I was also reading this news article about Japan, and I thought it was a cool idea to get electrolysis. I'd be more than happy to never have to shave again. If only it were cheaper and not painful...

    Yep Dave, I guess I have a 'tache, good for the beer froth, but it also holds the rest of my vanDyke beard from falling off my face. Hides the bruises too when you're too out of it and do a face plant.

    ahh... where is it

    Hey vniow, where exactly was the moustache ? On the guy or you ? And yes the first time I kissed a guy with facial fungus it freaked me a bit, and now it's an acquired taste. Yum.

    I've had a goatee since right after my daughter was born, almost 12 years. I never thought I'd keep facial hair of any sort, but now it's a part of me. Kinda freaks my mom out because it makes me look like her father sometimes. I keep it neatly trimmed. No way could I wear a moustache.

    Hey, Morgan Spurlock had one. Maybe you should just make a documentary and make them come back in style.

    I whole heartedly agree.
    Almost perfect... I like what is for most Caucasians I've seen, would amount to one or maybe two days of stubble. Mmm... that's hot. Just rough enough to stimulate but still somewhat 'soft.' I've no experiences w/ moustaches, goatees, beards (as far as kissing) but I just don't prefer that look.

    Well, being female, I'm very glad that I don't have a moustache! (Believe me I've seen some girls that do... *eek*)

    Can't say i'm a huge fan of facial hair myself (and yes i'm talking about men now)... but a slightly stubbled rugged look can be very sexy.... like the guy who plays Sawyer in "Lost". mmmmm ;)

    A man isn't a man unless he hair on his face and a big piece of meat to eat.

    I don't understand the attraction that some guys have with wanting to grow a soul patch, it's the little patch of hair that is grown right under the lips for those who don't know.

    Now the whole stubble, rugged, two day old growth look is quite alright IMO. I actually kind of like it on some people, even myself sometimes.

    My dad's grandfather, who served in WWI on the German side, came back from the war with brown hair and a red beard.

    Where I'm from (Copenhagen, DK) it's only people from the countryside who've got a mustache - police officers, soldiers and people working in banks. And then very trendy arty people, who like to keep hair and beard styles like swedish farmers.

    A friend of mine once said that as girls tend to shave most of their body for our sake, the least we can do is shave our faces. I have a fullbeard though. Which my girlfriend don't want to be to long, but she doesn't want me to take it away either.

    I've never understood how some people (like Yasser Arafat) can ALWAYS look like they haven't shaved in three days. I mean, do they shave and [poof] immediately new facial hair springs out to the three-day length? ;)

    Personally, I won't grow facial hair for a couple of reasons... one, I think it looks silly on most people (although my Dad has a full beard and mustache now)... and two, I lack "connectors"; there are a couple of spots, right at the edges of my lips, where there is NO facial hair. So if I don't shave, I end up with a mustache and a totally separate beard. Looks really stupid.

    I'm always surprised when in the US by how much facial hair there is. There appear to be many more moustaches than in the UK.

    I'm not a big fan of moustaches or beards on guys. Even goatees can look a little odd unless the rest of the guy's image goes with it. One of my ex's had very fast-growing hair; he really needed to shave again by 6pm at night and stubble just didn't look right on him. Guys with stubble either look really sexy or really scruffy... perhaps it depends on the occasion.

    I know one girl (though not well enough to tell her!) who has very dark sideburns and a moustache... oh dear... there's really no excuse!

    I have a full beard

    Had it for years, had to shave for a job for a while, now have had it back for years

    Funny, I have dreams sometimes where I shave it and panic... what's up with that?

    I would like to clarify that the Yasser Arafat sort of rugged beard is indeed NOT sexy.

    Don't know about Arafat, but the Danish primeminister fx has to shave 3 times a day to not look like a convict.
