Beards here, beards there….beards everywhere! We have reached to the point where beardy guys are the majority than the clean-shaven ones. Particularly among the 18-40 year old male population, because in older ages things are different (thankfully).
(In alphabetical order)
1) Beards are a current trend
This one is the biggest reason among all in my opinion.
In the 80s, in the 90s and in the 00s, most men were shaved, and they were still getting the chicks. In the 70s only beards were in, but by that time it was the thick hermitish beard. Now it's the thin 3-4 days old beard. No big difference to me, because beards are beards no matter how long or thick they are. 50s and 60s were also clean-shaven eras.
Suddenly, since the rise of the new decade, beardy guys were multiplied and people who never had a beard started to grow one in order to look in. See most male celebrities ( those that have been around for more than a decade). See how they looked a decade ago and see how they look now.
2) Beards are a sign of insecurity
Beards are said to hide your face flaws. For example a fat guy can hide his face fat (still he cannot become thinner, because his belly fat cannot be hidden). Likewise a guy with pimples can hide his pimples. To sum it up, it means you are not fond of your facial features.
3) Kissing is better
I can’t imagine a woman kissing a guy with a beard. Isn’t it kinda gross to eat hair? Not to mention when you eat, if in case you eat something saucy, all the sauces get stuck on your beard. Yuck.
4) Most people don’t know why they grow a beard.
Most common excuse is I am bored of shaving. Well you know what? I am bored of shaving too, but I do it in order to appear good-looking. No, the reason why you do it is because you see most guys nowadays have beards (see reason #1). You are just copying what you see. Do women like copycats? No.
But in fact beards must be grown for a reason. For example Orthodox priests (see picture above) grow beards as a sign of ignoring physical appearance and focusing on their inner selves. Such people have a reason actually. But doing it because it’s “in” is no reason.
5) Some guys cannot grow a full beard.
This patchy beard is worse than full beard. Why? Because it means the guy who wears it means he is desperate to grow a beard, because he thinks he could get more chicks that way (haha!). Better go clean-shaven because it looks really weird on you.
6) They make you look older
In most cases men are older when they date a girl. For example is more common to see a 30 year old man with a 25 year old woman than the other way round. Eh, now imagine this 30 year old guy with a beard and then imagine him clean-shaved. With beard he would look like her dad. Unless the girl likes being with a guy who looks like her dad, then I don’t think she would like it.
7) Women like guys who care about their appearance
And shaving your face means you care about your appearance.
