Why men grow beards?

It’s been two weeks since I got my head shaved. In no time, I got addicted to stroking my extremely short hair back and forth and that got me thinking about why men grow beards. (Since the shave, my hair started to grow back and my mind went on comparing it to men beard)

“In the course of history, men with facial hair have been ascribed various attributes such as wisdom and knowledge, sexual virility, masculinity, or high social status; and, conversely, filthiness, crudeness, or an eccentric disposition. In many cultures, beards are associated with nature and outdoors-men” (Wikipedia on beard)

Will Mari listed his ten reasons for me to grow beards:

  1. Facial hair is cool.
  2. It makes you manlier.
  3. It makes you look like Chuck Norris.
  4. You like the way it feels.
  5. You like to stroke it while you think.
  6. You like to scratch your manly arms and shoulders with it.
  7. You like the way it smells.
  8. You can store food in it.
  9. Girls dig it.
  10. Your are lazy.

Some guys would add reasons like:

  • Hate to shave.
  • It makes you to look older.
  • It is something that women cannot do.
  • It changes the appearance from a boy to a more handsome man.
  • Expression ofΒ  freedom after leaving the military service.

While other stated more sex-related reasons.

But while I was stroking that extremely short hair on my head back and forth, I just realized how SOOTHING it was taking the stress away like magic. (Ah! I just remembered a few people who can’t stop stroking my hair when I’m around! πŸ˜› )

Here is another good reason to shave your heads ladies!

  1. It’s true. I love stroking my friends’ hair when it starts growing.

    But all of the reasons above are good and possible reasons. All I know is that men with beards = hot.

  2. Remind to stroke ur head and make u purr like a kitten when u go on ur one woman campain to change the world, or a rant about “le sujet du jour”…


  3. well.. the short tender and pointy hair kinda tingles the hand gently even in the softest skin spots like between fingers
    the nerves in the hand get working in a sweet way causing that soothing sensation.

    yes, an elaborate explanation/excuse on why SOME ppl can’t stop stroking ur hair πŸ˜›

  4. This is my top 10 reasons for growing a beard;
    1- I’m extremely lazy! I hate shaving.
    2- I like people guessing my religion (here in sydney, having a name like Simon doesn’t really tell much bout religion, many people pick western names to replace their arab name, so Mahmoud becomes Michael, and Ali becomes Alen)
    3- I like to experiment with different styles of beards
    4- Manlier, lots of pple say i have a baby face and it pisses me off heheheh
    5- I enjoy the attention i get on a plane and airport security. Look everyone, an arab with a beard! get him! hehehe
    6- It pisses of my relatives and cousins (for religious and social reasons!! u know, backward mentality!!)
    7- i like the feel of it and stroking it when thinking and solving work problems
    8- i like how people think i look mean and angry with a beard

    can’t think of reason 9 or 10 hehehe…
