This is going to sound shallow but as long as I find it attractive, I wouldn’t mind...... (watch me get back lash :emo:)

I don’t mind girls with body hair but the whole facial hair going on, not too sure about that one.. probably leaning more on the no side depending on the severity.

Sure you can all say it’s shallow that I’m not dating you because of little things such as that; sure but where is the justice in dating if we’re only going to call other people shallow for finding something not attractive? A relationship is not always about personality attraction. It’s called physical preference.

You’re not going to date someone you’re not physically attracted to... if that was the case, I wouldn’t be seeing ugly guys getting rejected for not being tall etc.

So the actual reason is to do with social norms and the way society has portrayed women, especially in western culture. Women used to not shave anywhere, then basically the shaving industry realised they could make double the money if they included women in their target market, they struck various deals with high end women's magazines and basically sold the idea to women (and men tbf) that female body hair was unclean, not sexy and basically gross.
Fast forward a few decades and your left with a whole society that is anti-body hair. Smooth is ''fashionable'', its sold to us in adverts, music videos, magazines, celebrities, film.

Truthfully, some people will judge you, but ultimately in my opinion I would still do what makes you happy- its actually a really useful way to make sure the connections you make with people are genuine and not based on something so trivial.

PS. I'd totally date a girl I was into with or without a full on beard.

No, it wouldn't bother me. And the fact that you're not bothered about conforming to society and make a goal of accepting your own body, is itself attractive to me

The best (or if you think about it another way, the worst) advertising is the kind that sells you both the problem and the solution. Mouthwash was the same way. Nobody used to care what peoples' breath smelled like; "halitosis" wasn't really a thing.

If I saw you in public with a moustache, I will be weirded out by it yes. Sure it’s societal pressures, but so is looking presentable, so is having manners, so is going to the gym, so is having to be polite to people, so is wearing make up

Unfortunately, if norms aren’t met then obviously I’ll think different of it. I’m not going to sit here and sugar coat and try to comfort you that it wouldn’t bother me, I probably wouldn’t let you know about it but I’ll definitely think something of it.

Just do your thing and be yourself, but you’ll be judged. That’s just my take on it.

i mean i’ve defo got facial hair not the amount a guy would have but i have light hair on my cheeks, i have a moustache (which i normally get waxed but recently i cba to go out and get it done) and then i pluck the few hairs in between my eyebrows. i’m defo very insecure about body hair coz i genuinely have so much of it (but again i could feel this way given that the portrayal of women is usually hairless which is actually more childlike so its weird that society would want women to look like this but anyway). i have to say though i wish i didn’t care as much as i do because our body wouldn’t grow hair if it wasn’t for a reason so if you aren’t bothered about it just keep doing you, for me that’s super admirable!

ahhh thank you
that's exactly what i was thinking like it's ALL natural it's not like spots or summit that you kinda need to keep up on like if we have it why is it unhygienic
this is weird bc im insecure about it too sometimes but i hope you won't be too and i guess we have to be confident and own it lol

I mean i personally cant stand underarm hair on myslef or leg hair , but i could care less if others have it , as long as they are comfortable with it , it shouldn't bother the society,

But things like back fuzz or thigh hair or forearm hair, i dont understand y some would think its not accepted. Like thats some of the thinnest hairs and it confuses me.

tbh honest any hair like i have basically all of it im not like HAIRY i'm just normal cos it's literally hair I have never shaved so oooo yh i think back fuzz is pretty much ok with most ppl but then i guess there are some jerks out there like personally i wish i could wear dresses and everything that's why i wanna shave sometimes but then im likeeeee no plus cos i'm religious i also like keep my hair as acceptance of my natural body God gave me so like they're the two sides bruuuuhhhhh it's annoying and trivial but like we're all gonna die one day so why should we waste money on trying to look like some hairless human lolll societtyyyyy well western society anywayyyysss

I don’t mind a girl with facial hair I think it’s cute and it’s better to be true to who you are and not having to change to impress others
