When Chad and I first met, he didn’t have a beard. He was a short haired, clean shaven kind of guy. And I liked that.

Even though I like Chad’s clean shaven look, I am also a big fan of beards. For me, there’s almost nothing sexier a man can wear than a beard. I don’t know. I think it’s one of those primal, I’m a manly man things. Does that make sense?
After we’d been dating for a little bit and while we were living in Miami, I started to subtly suggest he might want to try out a beard. Finally, after me asking him for the zillionth time to grow a beard, he did. And you know what? He loved it too.

Chad loved it so much that he kept it for a few years. And I was insanely happy about it.

Ladies, what do you think? Men with beards or without?
