  • Snooping around this morning and came across this post. I like the point bel08 makes about those of us who are more gender fluid not being put off by some traits of our gender on the opposite gender. I find this to be a touchy point for me. I have been attracted to men who have somewhat of an androgynous "look" but there is a reallll fine line to me. Shaved arms and legs is too much for me. I like a man with some hair. I don't mind one who is well groomed, but he need not be softer than me. I'm dating someone now who has very long hair. My personal opinion is that he'd be much more handsome with a shorter cut, but I'm just fine with him the way he is. But I did tell him that I'm not a fan of the "man bun" or the "he-hive". LOL!

    • Mullets and frosted tips used to be popular too, once! It's just trend setters paving the way. I don't care what my husband wears but as he's comfortable and confident wearing it he looks perfect! (I don't get the man bun either to be honest)

      • I like a man to have less hair. I don't like very hairy arms or legs and I'm not a fan of facial hair. I do like men with long, black hair, however. I wouldn't rule a bloke out for being slightly hairy!

        • I just ran into this old thread and found it to be very depressing.

          It seems that the majority of women prefer hairy men. Many women are screaming over men with unbutton shirts showing hairy chests, also lots of women find facial hair sexy/attractive such as well groomed beards & mustaches.

          I don't know if it's some kind of rare medical condition, but I have no body hair like normal men. I have lots of hair on my head, and pubic hair, but nothing else. I've done a lot of research over the years but never found any medical related issue that would cause it.

          I have no facial hair, only very few pops up now and then above my upper lip and chin that I can shave maybe once a month, a lot of time I could just pick out the hair with tweezers. I always like to grow a mustache to look more manly, even tried a few hair growing ointments but nothing worked.

          Worst of all, I have no leg hair at all! I really don't understand how this strange condition happened to me, my brother and other asian men I know all have leg hair so it's not because of my asian descent. No leg hair for a man is extremely embarrassing, I rarely ever wear shorts because I don't want people to think that I shave my legs (I've been asked once about it).

          I have no arm hair, no chest hair, no back hair. And more embarrassing is the lack of underarm hair. I have so few and so thin underarm hair that it's barely visible, you have to be inches away from my armpit to see it. Whenever I'm shirtless on the beach or at a pool, I have to always remember not to lift my arms in order to hide the underarm. It's an advantage that I have no underarm odor and very little underarm sweat, but it's also a big embarrassment for a man with no visible underarm hair.

          I've always been sensitive about being hairless because it make me feel like a lost soul in the society where hairy men are being seemed as sexy & manly. I always felt uneasy taking off clothes the first time being intimate with a woman, so I didn't date a lot before marriage. And I'm really hesitate to date again even though we've been separated for over 3 years.

          Surprisingly something so insignificant like body hair that most people don't even think about can be so depressing!

          • Some women prefer hairless or almost hairless men. I think I would look at not having underarm hair as a blessing. I have no back hair and only a small amount of chest hair. Have you had women say something about your lack of hair except on your head and on your pubes?

              Only 1 time, a girl that I dated a long time ago told me that I remind her of her cousin's sphynx cat that has no hair, I had not idea how to respond to that.

              My ex occasionally said she wished her legs are like mine so she doesn't have to shave them. I wouldn't say that was a compliment, just her frustration of having to shave in order to wear skirt or shorts.

                Some women being jealous may be the only reaction I think you would get from women. I shave every day or every few days. I know you said you would like to grow a mustache; I would like it if I never had to shave again because my facial hair did not grow. Take pride in yourself.

                BTW, was your ex Asian? I ask because my wife is Thai and she does not shave her legs. To me they look just fine. Most other Southeast Asian women I know do not shave their legs.

                • I know a lot of Chinese and Korean men and they tend to be less hairy. It's normal.

                  Judging from their reproductive rate, they're not having a problem attracting women.

                  • Wow this is an old thread! Regarding hair, I've got it everywhere except on my face, and that only because I shave once or twice a day: the second time if I'm going anywhere in the evening, since by mid-afternoon I've got quite a bit of stubble. Very hairy chest, legs, arms, and possibly my back too - I can't see there! Recently I had an EKG for a routine physical, and the nurse shaved large patches of my chest (rather inexpertly, I might add) to attach the electrodes, so for almost a week I had these bare patches, and I was surprised at how uncomfortable some of my shirts and sweaters were when they were actually in contact with my skin!
