Are beards overrated?

If women really felt how they say they did when it came to beards I'd be swarmed with ladies. But as someone with a beard, I feel it's a bit overrated. Let's be realistic. Just because you have a beard doesn't mean you're going to get lots of women swooning over you. Anyone else think beards are overrated, or is it just me?

  • Haha, WHAT? No, beards are not overrated. Don't dis beards!

    Let me just throw this out there: there is no physical feature of any person that is going to make a love interest throw themselves at you. Looks simply get someone to notice you. Your personality, character--who you are--is what keeps them around.

    If you aren't having the kind of success with women that you want, look to your personal qualities to improve upon first. Physical features usually aren't the problem (that doesn't mean ignore hygiene or avoid dressing fashionably).

  • They're definitely not overrated by women. Most girls hate facial hair. Scratches up their face, gets in the way during oral, and most girls prefer the clean shaven guys without really significant amount of hair.

    Don't let my profile pic fool you, I am no stranger to facial hair. Could grow a decent beard in just a couple weeks. Unfortunately, most women don't prefer their men with manly man faces.

  • Not overrated at all. It takes more than just a beard, though. I am not going to be with someone or even ask someone out just because they have a beard.

  • No one is going to want you solely based on the fact that you have a beard, you know.

  • Like everything else, it depends on the beard and the person carrying the beard

    • Agreed!

  • You have a goatee that isn't a beard. Nobody likes goatees.

  • Yes, they're overrated. But on the right face they're still hot as fuck.

  • I would say a good beard is like a really nice haircut.
    If you have a really nice haircut AND a beard, it's like you have twice the nice haircut.

    But no one dates a guy based on his haircut.
    Kind of like how girls say they want a nerdy guy when they really just want Andrew Garfield.

  • they're not overrated in my area. 97% of guys here are clean as fuck pretty boys. only i and a few others stand out ;)

  • Hard to say but beards seem very trendy at moment.

  • I have part Cherokee blood in me, so it's impossible for me to grow a bread. Not that I'd want to anyway.

    • Same for me as an East Asian...

  • I'm not a fan of beards (for the most part).

  • I stopped attending services at the Church of @rthomas43 when the beard suddenly disappeared.

    It was like I woke up out of a trance and saw all the tomfoolery he put me up to. Multiple monetary donations, forced bake sales, random oil changes and endorsement of political candidates... I ate that shit up. But no more.

    It is currently growing back, and my faith is being tested again.

    • Give it a few months and business will resume as usual.

  • Nope, beards ftw

  • Some guys look good with a beard. Others like me don't so I am clean shaven.

  • guys with beard hot as hell.

  • I think so, I can't really grow one anyhow

  • No way are beards overrated. It's natural for a guy to have a beard. Cool - yes; overrated -- definitely not.

  • I don't care for beards.

  • Yes, but I still love mine. It's a personal thing I like.

  • well no shit man.

    Beards are a novelty thing. Anyone that believes beards are going to bring there looks up by a significant amount need to get a clue. Dont get me wrong beards can have the ability to change the way people see you (for better or worse). But I see too many dweebs rock a beard with the obvious intention of "notice me please" (not everyone of course).
