    Me too :) 

    In all seriousness though, I'm in the same boat as Mike - after about a week, my wife won't come near me.

    I have contributed in the past by taking part in MoRunner events and sponsoring a friend who does it every year, but can't see me ever being allowed to it.

    Also, my father in law has a moustache and really don't want me reminding my wife of her dad!!!!!

    Forget the week. My wife would rather kiss a porcupine than me after just a single day of not shaving.  She says the porcupine is softer.

  • My beard is roughly 20 years old and I am not about to shave it to start over. I'm not ZZ Top long yet, but the time and effort put into it is not small.

    My wife would probably agree, but with the event of home working, i'm just getting too damn lazy to shave every day :D

  • Your wives can kiss you guys 11/12 months out of the year. Let's grow mustaches for healthy bootyholes for the 1 out of 12.

  • I shaved this morning and took a photo. I guess I'll edit my post at the end of the month. I cannot grow facial hair well and am kinda dreading what I'll look like at the end of the month.

    Edit: Please note the lavish neckbeard that was forming. Lol.

  • All of my adult life, I've had a mustache.  I stopped shaving entirely in November 2012.  

    My beard is now about the length of 'Civil War General'.  

    So I have been (continuously) participating for the past 9 years.  

    Edit:  I've had a mustache except for a short 'experimental' time in college.  It didn't take me too long to realize I hate shaving my upper lip so I grew it back at the speed of hair!

  • Men's health issues I would assume cover BPH (benign prostatic hyperplasia, aka, an enlarged prostate) as well, which I can tell you from experience is no fun, especially when you have the pleasure of being in the < 3% of men who receive that diagnosis before the age of 50 (I was diagnosed at 46).  Currently on two medications that are supposed to help, but will likely be looking at surgery early next year if things don't start improving (I'm about six weeks into the 2nd medication, but I'm told it takes three months to see results, so there's still hope).  Trips to the bathroom every 30 - 60 minutes get old, especially when you give up and leave the restroom still feeling like you need to pee. 

    It's one of those things men don't talk about because, well, who wants to talk about having to pee all the time.  And yes, I had to interrupt typing this with a trip to the potty.

  • My wife has a love/hate opinion: love how it looks, hate how it feels.  So mustache and beard comes and goes regularly.  But Santa has to have a beard, so I need to grow one for the winter anyway.

    Hey, that's cool. To be fair, people on Twitter and Facebook also do it, so it's kind of an 'everywhere' thing, at least from my point of view. And it's for a good cause. :)

    It's also been a bit of a Spiceworks tradition for a while, and I realize now it would have been cool to put this in the OP. Here's just a few of the past Movember threads if anyone would like to check them out:

    What's Reddit got to do with it, Tyler-ANC​?  Movember has been around longer than Reddit, and can be traced back to a conversation in a pub.

    See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Movember for more about the origins of Movember.

    My son is in a similar boat but to be honest, he looks more like wolverine than a leprechan.

  • I grow one each Movember, and then give it up for Lent. Works out well that way so I don't have to have one in the hotter months of the year (northern hemisphere dweller that I am). It's also about that time that my wife grows tired of it, so... double win!

  • I've had a full beard for many years now, and would never even consider shaving it off.

    Funny story: I interviewed and was hired at my previous job (pre-covid) with the beard, despite the fact that (unbeknown to me) they have a "no facial hair" dress policy for men. Somehow, the owner/president and VP who had personally interviewed me, failed to notice that I had a beard. They later asked me if I wouldn't mind shaving the beard, as they had this policy... No, I didn't shave it, and ended up quitting that job a couple of months later due to all of the other "crazy" going on there.

    Probably not, but that would only be one example of all the immoral/illegal things that they were doing there, which was a major factor in my decision to leave after only 3 months, despite not having another job lined up. Ironically, this was a woman-owned and "highly respected" legal support services company.

    They also:

    • questioned my religious beliefs and chastised me based upon that.
    • commonly required staff to work >24 hours straight, especially if they were salaried.
    • required me to track all user passwords and report them regularly to the owners.
    • allowed open hostility in the workplace.
    • the list goes on...

    Ouch!  That place sounds TOXIC!!

    Definitely a place that deserves to be "named and shamed", but given that the USA is such a litigious country, it may not be safe to in an open forum like this.

  • Except for a span of about four months I've had a 'stache since I started college.  The beard is more recent.  Both are staying as they are.

    All about supporting men's health.  It's amazing how many guys are resistant to even getting a PSA blood test, so there are always opportunities to educate.
