Hello,
So ye recently I have noticed that my gf has a bit of upper lip hair, I don't know if she notices it but I can when up close.

Should I mention this to her? Is it common on girls in their 20's? I feel shallow but at the same time maybe it should be addressed.

Both girls and boys pov would be appreciated.

It's perfectly normal, what's she gonna do about it? Shave? Would only make matters worse.

Why would you mention it to her? I'm sure she's noticed it, long before you did!

All humans have hair on their upper lip. Women sometimes have lighter/finer hair that's only visible up close but a lot have darker hair as well. It's completely normal but society is ****ed up when it comes to hair on women. I can promise you that your gf will definitely know about the hair on her upper lip and telling her will only make her more self-conscious about it. If you want to break up, go ahead and tell her.

Just a little bit of hair? Don't worry about it, it's perfectly normal. Kind of hard to expect someone to be perfectly groomed 100% all the time.

That's the last thing I want to happen. This is the first time I've come across this "feature" on a woman so I wasn't sure how to react. I do agree how society portray women is incorrect and I don't consider myself as brainwashed, maybe ignorant.
I've also never heard any of my mates talking about it so I didn't want to ask them as they would probably be worse and mock.

Ignore it. I'm pretty sure she's noticed and regardless it is her decision to do anythingn about it. It's perfectly normal. If you're embaressed then you really need to grow up and give her the curtesy and break up with her

Yea, it's not like a moustache or anything lol, I suppose where she is naturally dark you can notice it more than you would on a girl who is blonde. This is only when the make up is off (she doesn't wear a lot anyway).

Facial hair on women is usually really fair in colour so people are unlikely to notice it in the first place. Unless she has a problem with it, just leave it alone. Like others have said, it's normal and she's probably noticed it already.

Don't worry about it, if she had a full on beard or moustache then I could see why you would tell her but if it's hardly noticeable forget about it.

From the responses that sounds like a bad idea. Do you find it grows back thicker?

I don't think you should make a point of it at all. If you tell her she will remember it as something that's knocked her confidence for ever, and TRUST ME that's a horrible feeling.

This is really common, particularly on girls with dark hair. I have the problem myself, and currently I don't do anything about it. There are bleaches available specifically for this problem (i.e. http://www.boots.com/en/Jolen-Creme-Bleach-125ml_21868/).

I also suffer from quite a bit of hair on other parts of my face, but I am currently seeing a specialist about this because it can be a side effect of PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome). This is predominantly on my cheeks and my neck. I stupidly shave this off regularly which only makes it grow back thicker. The specialist suggested waxing instead, but I am too chicken, lol!

Personally, I would be quite embarrassed if someone pointed this out to me. I am fully aware I have this hair, and I am pretty sure every girl would be. As your girlfriend wears makeup, she regularly looks at herself close up in the mirror, so she will know. As it doesn't bother you, I wouldn't mention it, unless it starts getting worse where you could mention PCOS to her (she may not be aware of the syndrome and its side effects).

Contrary to the advice of many, I would tell her. Chances are, she is already aware. Its not really a big deal

No, common urban legend-

http://www.snopes.com/oldwives/hairgrow.asp

Because when it's shorter, it can look thicker because it has blunt ends, and growth in shorter hair is more noticeable.

I don't want to be a ****, and there aren't many things I feel women have to do to be attractive, I don't care about clothes, make up, pubic hair... but facial hair is really unattractive to me, I don't think I could live with a girl with a noticeable moustache. The girls at work were talking about it and they all say they remove it. My girlfriend hates facial hair, so I always stay clean shaven, I don't really see why a girl can't.
