Q: Facial hair - dirty or desired?

Just thinkin about letting that beard grow, but not sure how they'd take that at work...

Is it considered sexy or dirty to let the hair grow?

I have a pretty long goat, locals think it's dirty and smelly (which of course it's not) but they keep telling me it's not good... Remember in this society they like the men to look like women... Clean shaven and pretty.

Women in China 'usually' love hairy men. People like what's rare and different, and most Chinese men have as much hair as a 2 day-old baby.

Facial hair is a little different though...a 2-3 day stubble will be ok, but anything over that will often be considered dirty, unkempt. People will tend to associate that with beggars who don't have the money to shave.

It's generally considered 'un-gentleman' like.

I have been praised from many men for having a beautiful beard, Old said, i'm blessed and young said its sexy and beautiful. 

 

But girl, ah... not even one wants her man to look like a man but damn, GOD made girls beautiful and they go for beauty but its as they say , PARENTS don't want us to get best things, they want us to get what is needed. SO what is needed for women is MAN, not by face but by action which today's society lacks a lot. 

Beard looks bad if its not kept clean and combed.

For me, everyone except my wife loves it. She thinks it makes me look OLD!

 

Other's comment on how good it looks. Chinese like what's different and there is nothing more exotic that a guy covered in facial hair!

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
