Shauna- Thank for your positive thoughts and observations!

I wanted to note the statement (actually the grammar) that bedevils so many- “Women prefer men clean-shaven.” The predicate is applied to seemingly all women, when in fact it applies to only a proportion. There is a substantial number of women who prefer bearded men. For men actually looking for companionship (and admiration), you only need to find ONE.

Furthermore, the generalization that women prefer men clean-shaven is often taken to mean that (all) women prefer ALL men to be clean-shaven, and that, too, is clearly overstated. Most women may prefer you bearded, if you are like me and your face is nothing to look at.

To men, I say, beware of living by simple truths when reality itself is so complex.
