A guy I slightly know grew a beard, another friend of his posted that he had a reason for it and made it like it was some big deal. Nobody I know knows what she is talking about and she is being "mysterious" about it. Nobody can ask him because he is currently unavailable online/text for a few weeks while he and his band go on a small tour.
He still shaves his head everyday so it isn't about not wanting to shave. And he isn't a sports fan, so not about a sports team or tradition.
I'm mostly just confused why the one friend is acting like it is a big mystery.
1. most of the time, it indicates someone self involved 2. others grow it due to skin blemishes, odd face shape they can now control 3. fraternities have celebrations where these are a must 4. when young, just want to see if can grow a good one & see what life in one is like 5. Facebook recently had a grow a beard in support of XYZ something that a friend was doing 6. secret clubs may require this as a step in passage to being promoted 7. it is a sexual adventure experiment between the two of them
Many reasons.Most of them personal.Maybe a girl (he likes) likes it more.Maybe he has a scar or anything to hide? Maybe HE likes it more, looking "brutal" and more man like, that "spartan" look (which greeks really rock-besides it's in their bloode)... -God I love bread, too!! :P
