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!

But hordes of puppies will be burned allive if you don't complete Movember

Funny, years ago when I grew some facial hair my boss (female) refused to look at me too.

Interesting behavior.

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.

"Recurring nightmares of mustaches". "Severe mustachephobia". lol

I suppose all you can do at this point is to reassure her that it's only 'til the end of the month. Remind her that it's for a good cause: to spotlight men's physical and mental health issues. Remind her that we just went through Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October. Ask her if she's ever seen any commercials about the Movember Movement. Do they even exist 'cause I've never seen them.

Mustaches attacking her in her dreams?  Wow!

 

And yet she was okay with your beard?  That's very interesting, indeed.

yea, i think she's crazy.

One should try and overcome their fears. I suggest treating the mustache like a wild stallion. First she must capture it and then ride it until it is too tired to move.

I don't have any advice, but I find it alarming that so many modern women are repulsed by masculine characteristics. I would prefer a woman who values rather than denigrates my own masculinity.
