Clean shaven. Some men look good with facial hair, but my default preference is clean shaven.

Which branch were you in? My daddy is in the Navy. )

I would say do what YOU feel like doing... though to the answer the question, I can't stand most facial hair (or body hair in general...yah. I do not like my men hairy). A small goatee or, as my boyfriend calls it, a "bacon strip" is all I can stand most of the time. A small, short beard can look nice on older men, but certainly not my taste on younger ones.

If they think you're attractive/funny/pleasant enough, women usually opposed to it will discount the facial hair. Just go for it.

Some people can pull it off better than others.

I prefer to stay clean shaven, but my brother and two half brothers prefer to keep a bit of stubble.

Clean seems to be the way to go these days, but I'd say fie on popularity and go with what Vimes said: whatever you want. Except caveman. Never go caveman except in November.

(sorry for the pic, but I don;t know what the hell that's called..)
Anyway, for cosplay I shave now because it's just easier and became habbit..

With my experience though, the girls I have dated, I think only one didn't like it so....I don't think I'm of much help on the issue..

I believe it isn't other people's decision how you grow your facial hair.

You grow it, and they deal with it.

I'm a woman but I'm unsexy, does my opinion still count? If so I vote full caveman.

It's a "soul patch" you're referring to, but a soul patch is only the bit of beard directly under the bottom lip; with the additional chin hair I think what Jason had is closer to a goatee.

That particular look always makes me think of Scott Ian.

Ha ha! Harlan Ellison respectfully disagrees.

Go full caveman. It's very virile.

ever suits your face, some people look silly with it, my boyfriend happens to look like he is 12 without it. I am a person who swore I would never date some one with a beard and now I get upset when he shaves so Just pick a style that looks good for you and that is what women will notice. Unless its a creepy looking teenstache sort of thing...feel free to prove me wrong but im pretty sure everyone finds those gross
