I began this month as a participant of the great male tradition No Shave November. My beard was full and glorious, but my office had opted to go the Movember route and grow out mustaches. A few days ago I decided to be a team player and shave the beard but leave the mustache. As the discussion title states, my girlfriend HATES it. She actually refuses to look at me and says she has began having recurring nightmares of mustaches attacking her. I've never seen such severe mustachephobia. I can't continue to put up with her complaining, but on the flip side, I can't give up on Movember! What do I do?!
Welcome to being with a woman? I have never met a woman who legitimately likes mustaches.
Well, you know, it does look pretty frightening.
Fortunately God built the solution into your face: a full beard!
Shave the gorram thing off. It's just facial hair for christsakes...
But hordes of puppies will be burned allive if you don't complete Movember
That’s strange considering how much your girlfriend likes my mustache? I Kid I Kid
Good rule to follow in life:
Decide and do, and don’t change course just to please a women.
Then there is a compromise: I will let you shave off my mustache if I can Ahh Hemmm shave something on you.
No I like to braid her back hair; I was thinking more the back of her hands.
Funny, years ago when I grew some facial hair my boss (female) refused to look at me too.
Yeah I am with everyone else. Shave it off. Your relationship is more important than a mustache and it will show that you care about her. Second, you might find out why she is so appalled by mustaches in general. I wouldn't be surprised if she had some bad experiences as a child by a man with a mustache. Anyway, I find that my wife is more willing to kiss me when she doesn't have hair poking at her.
I kind of think you're hitting the nail on the head with the "bad experience with a mustached man" theory.
Mustaches look good on about 0.5% of the adult male population.
