Having a beard is a lifestyle choice many men around the globe choose to enjoy. It's a right of self expression, a sense of freedom as an individual. But every now and again misconceptions tend to form, usually started on some form of social media which soon spreads as fast as wildfire. And as quick as such misconceptions are created, they usually stick around much longer, becoming a total pain in the ass to shake off.
Today, I wanted to discuss 4 Misconceptions People Make About A Man And His Beard...
This has to be by far one of the most frustrating stories that quickly went viral and destroyed every 'beardos' social media timeline for weeks if not months.
If my memory serves me well it was a little known radio station in Mexico that first conducted the study, of which they labelled as a 'scientific study' which shown a small handful of men had minute bacteria particles within their beards that are also found in human feces, yet not exclusively.
The story soon landed on the worldwide web and caused a total sh*t storm on Facebook and Twitter (excuse the cheap pun) as every Tom, Dick and Harry shared it.
To cut an overly long story a little shorter, this was never a 'scientific study', but a low key radio host reporter trying to stir the pot and make some news on what I can only assume was a quiet day at the office. Not long after this story broke a real study was conducted which shown many beards are in fact much cleaner than our 'clean shaven' counterparts. So stick that in your horn and honk it.
Anyone who suggests that we are only bearded because we are too lazy to shave are either one of two things. 1- a beardless female, or 2- a beardless male.
Short term we might save a little time in not having to shave each and every morning, but it isn't long until our furry faces require some TLC and male grooming. And believe me, this can take up a lot of time in the process. Nobody in their right mind grows out a beard on the grounds that they are too lazy to shave.
When the routine of applying beard oils and balms, washing the beard and combing through any knots and tangles you might find each and every day begins to take place it's no simple task by anyones stretch of the imagination.
There are many things that will affect a beard. From the little tricks on how to eat, just simply waking up in the morning and dealing with bed beard, and how there is a sense of Camaraderie between bearded brethren.

A woman’s attraction to her counterpart is a direct reflection of her expectations on that person. Whether it is a casual fling, a uncommitted or committed relationship, a woman is going to make the best decision she can based off of her perceived impression or intentions of that man based on their appearance. Ultimately, in a world where a woman has to base her needs on first impressions, just like a job interview, your beard, or lack of beard, may be applying for her next conquest.
