We dated for 5 months. Im 19, he 21. Honestly I didn't ask him to shave it off! I wanted him to clean it up; clip the fly aways, give it some shape, and make it nice at his cheek bones. He's very handsome but this beard is so wild and untamed that it takes away from his features. I tried telling him this but he 100% will not touch it. It was much shorter when I met him so it didn't bother me but now its to crazy looking. He said he only shaves once a year for a hockey team... I don't ask for much but he told me he would never clean up his beard. I can't help that I'm not attracted to it. Its a little embarrasing and even my grandma asked if I was dating a terrorist. He's so stubborn and basically said it was his way or the highway. If he can't compromise on this with me that makes me think he won't ever compromise with me on anything. I just feel guilty because he was such a great guy, our personalities were different but we worked and I know he was crazy about me but he still chose the beard.

You should feel guilty. That's a stupid reason to leave a man. -_-
You can't just give someone an ultimatum and try to force them into doing what you want. It's messed up to try and manipulate someone with a break-up. However, I do understand your frustration. He could have been willing to at least shave it more often or something.
It's a tricky situation. I can kinda see where you're coming from because thick beards gross me out. I don't like the way they look and they seem unhygienic unless the guy shampoos it regularly. I imagine food falling into his beard while we're out eating which makes me cringe if he has something with sauce. But at the same time, I feel like if you find someone whom you truly love and care about, you should never leave their side over something like that.0THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE
