1. Your lumberjack fantasies are now a reality.
Who doesn't want to have sex with an 1840s gold miner? Idiots, that's who.
2. You get to use his conditioning products.
Guys with beards just have better product, and as someone who loves to put every item in a shower on my body all the time, there's nothing better.
3. Brushing beards is fun.
Sometimes I just brush my fiancé's beard for hours. Or, more accurately, he lets me do it while he stares into space and prays for me to stop. We both love it.
4. It tickles you...down there.
Friction where friction is needed. That's all I'm going to say.
5. He's virile!
Beards come when a man hits puberty and is ready to impregnate you with his seed. Which is the most disgusting sentence I've ever typed, but dammit, it's true!
6. He's soooooOOOOooo masculine.
If you want a man who looks like he can build you a treehouse with nothing but his bare hands and a pile of kindling, get yourself a man with a beard. He can build anything, fix anything, lift anything, and the sex? GIRL.
7. He's patient.
Do you know the kind of patience it takes to grow out a beard? He's basically Gandhi.
8. He's healthier.
That's not just me saying that; it's science! The beard blocks out the sun's harmful rays and keeps him baby-faced underneath all the fuzz.
9. He's cooler than dudes without beards.
It's just a fact.
10. He's confident.
It takes some serious cojones to walk around with a full bush on your face.
11. He's sensitive.
Another fact I'm about to drop on your face: The scarier a dude looks, the more of a puppy dog he is. If your guy looks like someone The Sons of Anarchy would run from crying, I bet he brings you flowers on the regular, the big softie.
12. He's more fun to snuggle.
Beards are like face sweaters, and who doesn't love to cuddle up with a cozy cardigan during the winter months? Snuggling your face in a soft beard is comforting and fun.
