Dear men, are women running away from your perfectly groomed, clean shaven baby face? And is this after you’ve shaved your mane because you read somewhere that bearded faces are unhygienic and a turn off for women because they probably have leftovers from Friday night’s dinner, ash from the cigarette you last smoked and bacteria from all over the place, stuck in it?
Well, a baby face is going to get you nowhere, sadly, so grow your mane back and take better care of it because a study revealed that women are far more attracted to men that sport a rugged beard than to angel face Anthony’s.
No it’s no longer just a hunch and we’re not faffing based on a dime a dozen bearded-men-are-sexy memes that circulate on the internet. An actual study was conducted by researchers at the University of Queensland, Australia where it was found that women were not only more sexually attracted to bearded men, they would choose to enter a long term committed relationship with them, over clean shaven ones.
The study revealed that bearded men were considered more mature and masculine than clean shaven ones as “…beards may signal men’s age and masculine social dominance”. Huzzah for fuzz monkeys, you’ll draw women to you instantly, and buck up angel faces, time to get on the beard-wagon.
But wait… nothing is as easy as it ever sounds, and don’t take anything at face value, there’s more to this than meets the eye, the fine print, if you will. Let’s talk about your future based on the length of your beard, shall we?
Flaunting the morning after stubble and disheveled hair everywhere you go may make you feel masculine, and since it is a beard, and based on what we just told you you’d think you’ll land your forever lover with it– but no. The same study claims that men with stubble may be sexually attractive to women, far more than clean shaven or full bearded men, but not enough to ask you to put a ring on them.
We didn’t want to give sexy stubble sporters heartache but if it is long term they seek, they’re going to have to take their mane to the next level. It was observed during the same study that, “If you ask women to judge clean shaven, stubble or bearded men, we found rising masculinity with more beard. However sexual attractiveness peak at stubble”. Full beardedness gets full score, the longer the beard, the higher the chances of wedding bells with your lady lover!
We suppose after getting a load of this, a large chunk would want to go cannonballing into fullbeardedness, a carefree few would want to stick to the slick stubble and even fewer would want to continue with the clean shaven look.
We’ll repeat your beard horoscope before signing off:
Fullbearded men are likely to enter a long term relationship in the near future
Stubble studs are likely to enjoy short term flings in the days to come
Clean shaven angel faces are going to have a harder time finding both long term relationships and short term flings unless they get a full beard or a stubble.
P.S.- there’s an array of beard grooming products in the market, just for you. So, if you want to fare well with the ladies, we suggest you get your hands on some.
