I used to do this but got out of the habit. I used to shave in the spring. But I look so much younger I was getting id'ed everywhere I went..

ummm I stopped shaving it off 4 years ago or so...

I have one pic of myself from then without a beard.. hmmm.. still thinking and considering haha

Hi Ari!

A quick note that hopefully will put a smile on your face--I have never liked facial hair, even teased DW that I wouldn't kiss him until he shaved the goatee he grew while on a 2 week vacation with his friends ;-), and now, every man I've dated since we started the poly journey has had facial hair, ranging from only shaving every few days to full grown beard. The universe smiles ;-). I say do what you want to do keeping in mind that yes, it does grow back!

Also, I'm so glad to see that you are re-connecting with those important people in your life, Pengrah foremost among them! If I missed your trip to Victoria, I hope you had/are having a great time!

Hugs,

Fundamental flaw

Focussing on what I have lost/don't have vs the amazing things in my life.

ILW2 - weekend was amazing, I updated in the how are you doing thread.

Now smoking busy with work, and getting ready for the trip to dallas next week.

I think we're all guilty for focusing on what we don't have from time to time, it just makes you human. I'm glad you had a good weekend here and I'm looking forward to the next visit.
