Reasons guys with beard make the best boyfriends
You may think that whether or not a guy has a beard has absolutely nothing to do with the type of boyfriend he’d be. But you’re wrong. It can have an awful lot to do with how they treat their significant other, and if they’re a decent boyfriend or an awful one.
The truth is guys with beards just make better boyfriends. They just do! No, it doesn’t have to do with how their beard makes them look sexier. In fact, most of the reasons aren’t really physical related at all. Here’s why you should make a guy with a beard your next boyfriend.
#1 They’re patient. This is probably the biggest and best reason guys with beards make the best boyfriends. We all know how much patience a boyfriend needs to deal with some of us ladies, right?
#2 They appreciate your own grooming. When a guy has taken the time and energy to grow out a beard and keep it groomed, he has a certain level of respect for taking care of himself and that translates to respecting your own grooming habits.
#3 He’s more masculine. This may just be an appearance thing, and he could be the most feminine man ever. But if you want a boyfriend, dating a guy with a beard certainly gives you that. Guys with full, thick beards also tend to have more testosterone coursing through their veins. This makes them act and appear more manly.
#4 His kisses are unique. Every guy kisses differently, but kissing a guy with a beard is beyond that. It’s like an imprint on you every time you kiss him and you’ll never forget what kissing him feels like. This will make you bond closer with him and advance your relationship even more.

#5 He can change up his look more often. A lot of us get bored with how our boyfriends look after a while. I mean, if you think about a girlfriend, we change our hairstyle, put on new makeup and clothes. It’s like we’re a different person.
#6 He can bring your lumberjack fantasy to life. Don’t even deny it, ladies. Many of us have these fantasies about lumberjacks with full, dark, thick beards that make our knees go weak. If you date a guy with a beard, you’re bringing that to life. And that is an amazing feeling!
#7 He’s low maintenance. Most guys who grow out their beards aren’t very high maintenance. In fact, they’re so low maintenance they don’t even shave. You don’t have to worry about him taking forever to get ready before a date. You also won’t have to worry about getting him anything big and elaborate for his birthday because he really doesn’t want stuff.
#8 But he understands needing to be high maintenance. On the flip side, guys with beards also understand the need for you to be high maintenance. Beards may be low maintenance to grow, but once they’re there they take some care and attention to keep them from getting out of hand. [Read: 15 signs you’re clearly a high maintenance woman]
#9 He’s healthier. When is the time you’re crankiest–not counting your periods? I’m guessing it’s when you’re sick. I’m also going to assume that you’re not always the best girlfriend when you’re sick.
It has been scientifically proven that guys with beards are healthier than your average Joe on the street without a beard. Beards trap debris and harmful bacteria before it goes into the body. This keeps them healthy, happy, and those make great boyfriends. [Read: Check that checklist: What do you look for in a guy?]
#10 He’ll be well-respected. Traditionally speaking, many guys with beards are perceived as more prestigious than their clean-shaven counterparts. They tend to carry themselves with an air of respect and confidence.
You’ll never have to worry about someone being rude or disrespectful to him because they won’t want to be. Beards–even today–still warrant a respected behavior from others.
#11 Nobody messes with him. Just like people respect him, people won’t want to mess with him. Beards usually signify a lot of testosterone. Meaning, he’ll probably be a lot stronger than other men, which means nobody will mess with him or you.
#12 He can commit. This is another big reason guys with beards make the best boyfriends. If he can commit to growing out, taking care of, and owning a beard like he does, then he clearly doesn’t have any commitment issues.
This can help you feel at ease and confident in your relationship because you know he’s in it for the long haul and his beard is proof that he knows how to commit. Commitment issues can be the biggest reason relationships fail. Knowing that your man will commit saves you from that hardship.
