There has been a relatively new trend set off in recent years — a regression to primal urges — where women find themselves attracted to men with facial and body hair.
Where our mothers had a thing for the clean-cut, well-groomed man, associating him with success and financial security, we ladies of the Millennial generation are finding ourselves enticed by the burly, more rugged hairy men.
If you’ve heard of Lumbersexuals, you’ll know what I’m talking about. A generous amount of body fuzz is no longer seen as an indicator of the scraggily or unmotivated, but rather the strong, independent and wise.
We’ve all been made aware of the merits of dating men with man buns and hairy chests. These men are strong, mature and virile.
And, likewise, there are countless reasons a girl should want to date a man with a beard. There is something even manlier and more primal about a beard than either a man bun or a hairy chest.
A beard is right there on a guy’s face. It’s the first thing a person will notice, and the first thing a guy will be asked about.
The man with a beard is a confident, desirable man. He’ll make a better boyfriend and, one day, a better father to your perfect offspring.
Here are 21 completely logical reasons why you should always date the guy who has a beard:
1. Beards are rugged and manly.
A man with a beard is just plain sexier than a man with a baby-bare face — just look at this guy. A girl loves a guy who looks like a manly beast.
Sometimes we just want to be manhandled, and a beard is a dead ringer for getting that kind of aggressive action. Not to mention, it looks like he could build you a house with his bare hands — and I am all about that.
2. Kissing is more fun.
Kissing a man with a beard tickles in a good way. It’s a little like receiving a free chin scratch. Also, there’s something decidedly aggressive about making out with a bearded man.
3. He goes down a lot better.
Holla! Nothing better than a beard on inner thighs, trust me. Once you go beard, you will never go back. Is that the saying? Well, it should be.
4. He looks good when he’s all dressed up.
A beard is a great contrast against a suit or a slick button up. Having a burly bit of facial hair adds a sense of the strapping woodcutter complemented by a stylish outfit. His beard also allows for a more acute confidence in your man, making him all that more appealing as your strapping arm candy.
5. It’s fun to stroke.
Men are a lot like dogs. They like to be rubbed and scratched. Having a beard is like having another pet. You can run your hands along his brawny mug instead of just plain old bare skin — and the ignited nerve-endings sure will be delighted.
