    Actually, some people tell me this is a myth, but I was always told your facial hair grows in faster every time you shave. From personal experience, I believe this to be true (although I don't think it works with everyone, it's prolly region-locked). [​IMG]

    Via extreme laziness I presently have a beard (goes great with my bowler hat), you will go through an itchy hell in about 4-5 days time. Make it through that and you will be fine.

    I have been told to shave as well. Any more tips. My dad has a nice beard so I assume I can get one.

    Does your stubble connect between your jaw and your chin? If so, just let it grow, if not, start thinking about a goatee.

    Yep it connects. So, I should just let it grow. No shaving what so ever. Good plan [​IMG]

    The more testosterone you have, the greater the amount of facial (and body) hair growth you will experience. You can increase your testosterone naturally by exercising, weight training etc. but the difference would be minimal. Now, if you really want to you could go for testosterone injections, but you will react to the surplus of it by having your balls shrink, as their testosterone producing duties are clearly being fulfilled by the injections.

    It's up to you, but I personally don't think it would be worth it. [​IMG]

    My tips:

    1 - If you have a gf, try to convince her that you really want it.

    2 - Don't shave at the beginning, but after 3 - 5 weeks, start to shape it with a razor. And keep doing it every couple days. If you let it just wildly grows, you could get disencouragedabout your... project.

    Cursed?

    I don't know a single woman who prefers a man with a 'tache. Thin stubble on the other hand... [​IMG]

    (Which is quite fortunate for me, given that about six hours after a clean shave I already have noticeable growth)

    SHAVE THE NECK BEARD!!!

    Good God, the neck beard is disgusting. Also the hair on the cheeks should be shaven too to keep it looking neat (or is that just me?). I'm a pretty hairy guy. Also, it depends if you want your sideburns to connect to your facial hair. Make sure you shave a at least once before you start growing it. If you don't you'll end up with a patchy, messy looking beard.

    Yeah, good ol' [M] always eliminates any 'stache that appears but always leaves a little chin-stubble for playtime, if ya know what I means... [​IMG]

    I'd say don't grow it at all. It'll make you look older for sure. I've had a beard for like a year but got really bored of it. And now. I just like the smooth feeling better
