It really depends on the guy and how his facial hair behaves. I certainly prefer nicely trimmed to the Badger Attached to Face look.
My husband's beard grows out in three colors (blond, red a little brown). It is incredibly cute but I think he looks better without. I dated a guy who was very attractive without a beard, and a complete show stopper with a short beard/mustache.
I also have to say I envy guys for having the choice!View Thread
Yes. I was about 25 lbs underweight before I moved in w/the man I eventually married. 7 years later I'm 10 lbs under my target weight. The horror!
But does that mean that two women in a relationship will stay the same weight, while two men stay the the same or lose weight?
This sounds like a perpetuation of the myth that women stay skinny until they snag a husband and then they get fat. I wonder if what happens is we're repeatedly told we must look like fashion models if we want anyone to love us. When we find someone who does love us, we don't worry so much about weight and relax and (gasp!) eat more.
One thing that isn't clear from the video or the subtitle of the book: "How to stay thin when dating a diet disaster" is whether the studies show women tend to become OVERWEIGHT or merely GAIN weight. There's a huge difference. Failing to make the distinction perpetuates the body image issues countless women struggle with daily.
My problem with this legislation is it is a waste of time, just like the other internet control laws that have been put forward over the years. Even the legislators don't mean for it to pass. It just gives them a chance to babble about their concern for safety.View Thread
I helped reduce the problem of unattended cell phones by tossing them in people's desk drawers when they go off. It was a strong, but gentle hint, and it worked. Of course that was 5 years ago.
With the proliferation of smartphones that's no longer a problem because people carry them everywhere. Now the problem is people who come to meetings but keep their attention locked on the phone. Result: During any meeting at least one person will suddenly look up and say: "Huh?" (Sheesh.) "Could you repeat that?" (Grrrr!) And my favorite, "Sorry, I wasn't paying attention."

People who use their outdoor voices for normal conversations and their Bellowing Like a Gored Ox voices when they get excited. Also, if you could take that long conversation about last night's game, T.V. episode, &c, &c away from my desk, I'd appreciate it. Finally, coworkers who come in trailing a cloud of cold/flu viruses are The Pits.
Fortunately we're allowed to listen to music through headphones in here so that cuts down on the noise problems. Not much I can do about sick coworkers who won't stay home except wash my hands a lot.View Thread
