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?!
That'd be a tough one... I haven't seen my upper lip since I was 19. Almost a quarter-century. But the again, my lovely half has never seen my upper lip. I do honor requests for trimming though. I understand not liking wiry hairs up her nose. I agree with falling back and punting. Shave it off, go back to full beard if you want, but certainly get to the root of her fears. I agree that she may have had a traumatic experience, and there's no reason for her to carry that around any longer!
keep it..enuff with the understanding and sucking up..
First it's the moustache, then?
What if she complains your dick is too big and is having nightmares about it?
Or she doesn't like guys with testicles?
With eight days to go, I would show her what a man who is committed to a worthwhile cause looks like.
(My wife hates the Movember-stache on me as well, but as long as I don't wear it to her office Christmas party next month, she has no reason to make it a personal issue)
Tell her to shave her vagina.
As I write this, it is the 25th day of November. Surely she can allow you a personal accomplishment by letting you finish the month? Offer to let her have the honors of shaving it on December 1st.
Very late to this party, but for Pete's sake, you posted November 21 and wanted to keep the mustache only 9 more days until Movember was done. I think she needs to lighten up and deal and not be so out of proportion about her dislike for it.
