Just wondering if any bearded guys find they have issues in their workplace. I don't but am curious to know how it is elsewhereContinue

How many of you guys roll your shirtsleeves up at work? Is it just to be comfy, the stop the cuffs from fraying or to make a formal situation less formal?Continue

"Am not a huge fan of ties, but, like you used to, I wear them for work. Best advice is: whatever the main colour of the shirt is, wear it with a tie where that colour is present but in a minor way. I have a checked shirt with several colours in…"

"Jeran, It will be interesting to see ten years from now, whether the current acceptability of beards continues, or recedes.  Most men wore beards before the 1800's.  Not so in the 1900's.  My personal opinion is…"

I'm a new aromantic ace. Any questions?

Hey everyone! I'm a 23 year old (cis) man from the UK. I'm both asexual and aromantic, as I only realised a couple of months ago. I'm currently at uni studying education, but I want to go into psychology rather than teaching. Currently I'm only out as aro-ace to my friends on Reddit, not to my friends at uni. Any questions?See More
