9 Reasons Why It’s Good To Date A Man With A Beard

In society today, you can easily see the resurgence of the beard. It is a time honored tradition of men throughout our history. Although in recent times it has been expected of men to be clean shaven, the beard has made a comeback. Teenagers and adults alike all over the world have begun using facial hair to complement their features. Which has brought us to compile nine reasons why it is good to date a man with a beard.

1. It is sexy.

A man with a beard definitely has a more rugged and manly look that most women will find attractive. Characters like Wolverine from the “X-Men” series, Thor from the Marvel universe or “True Blood” star Joe Manganiello prove just how sexy a nice amount of facial hair can be. Since men can’t wear make up, the beard can also have cosmetic benefits, as it can hide acne or acne scars and strengthen a weak jaw line.

2. They make better lovers.

Every woman wants a man who can satisfy her sexually.From foreplay to intercourse, the beard is a versatile tool. It can give a little friction where friction is needed, if you understand what I mean. From a gentle tickle to an aggressive rub, men with beards have a distinct advantage when it comes to pleasing a woman.

3. It implies prestige.

In old Celtic times, Otto the Great often swore by his beard. In the Middle Ages, touching another man’s beard was grounds for a duel. Men today use their beards as symbols of strength, manliness, self-esteem and status. A man with a beard generates alpha status and lets a woman know that he can be a good protector.

4. Bearded men can be more virile.

When boys start approaching puberty, their bodies begin to change. One of such changes is growing a beard. For a woman looking to start a family, a beard might symbolize a man who is hormonally ready to make babies.

5. They are more patient.

For most men, growing a beard is a task that involves patience and understanding the bigger picture. It shows a man who is cool, calm, collected and calculating. For the most part, they are not rash or hasty when it comes to decision making.

6. They are understanding.

Keeping an attractive beard requires a lot of grooming, styling and patience. It is a great benefit to be dating such a man as this because he has his own beauty routine, and would most likely be conscious and understanding of your own. This also may mean that he will be easy to talk to and probably also a good listener.

7. Bearded men are anything but ordinary.

Having a beard is a timeless look that never goes out of style. No matter what, it will always be fashionable to wear a beard. A bearded mans look will always be versatile.

8. They are father figures / romantic figures.

Although most women are not looking to date their fathers, they would most likely want to date men that remind them of their fathers. A man with a beard will often carry the perception of wisdom and discernment. In recent studies, women found men who had at least 10-day-old beards to be more attractive than their clean shaven counterparts. They also perceived them to be better and more protective fathers. The men also appeared more aggressive and masculine, which would make them better romantic partners.

9. They are healthier.

Chances are, a man with a beard leads a more active and adventurous lifestyle. They will enjoy outdoor sports like camping, fishing and hunting. Studies have shown that beards also block 90 to 95% of UV rays, slowing the aging process and reducing cancer. Not only will your man be enjoying the outdoors with you, he will also be protected by the power of the beard.

Beards are fun and mysterious, as the women who date the men can attest to. I hope these nine tips give good insight into why your man might want to get working on growing a beard himself.

7 Ways To Deal With Negative People

7 Ways To Deal With Negative People

Some people will have a rain cloud hanging over them, no matter what the weather is outside. Their negative attitude is toxic to your own moods, and you probably feel like there is little you can do about it.

But that couldn’t be farther from the truth.

If you want to effectively deal with negative people and be a champion of positivity, then your best route is to take definite action through some of the steps below.

1. Limit the time you spend with them.

First, let’s get this out of the way. You can be more positive than a cartoon sponge, but even your enthusiasm has a chance of being afflicted by the constant negativity of a friend.

In fact, negativity has been proven to damage your health physically, making you vulnerable to high levels of stress and even cardiac disease. There’s no reason to get hurt because of someone else’s bad mood.

Though this may be a little tricky depending on your situation, working to spend slightly less time around negative people will keep your own spirits from slipping as well.

2. Speak up for yourself.

Don’t just absorb the comments that you are being bombarded with, especially if they are about you. It’s wise to be quick to listen and slow to speak, but being too quiet can give the person the impression that you are accepting what’s being said.

3. Don’t pretend that their behavior is “OK.”

This is an easy trap to fall into. Point out to the person that their constant negativity isn’t a good thing. We don’t want to do this because it’s far easier to let someone sit in their woes, and we’d rather just stay out of it.

But if you want the best for this person, avoid giving the false impression that their negativity is normal.

4. Don’t make their problems your problems.

Though I consider empathy a gift, it can be a dangerous thing. When we hear the complaints of a friend or family member, we typically start to take on their burdens with them.

This is a bad habit to get into, especially if this is a person who is almost exclusively negative. These types of people are prone to embellishing and altering a story in order to gain sympathy.

Why else would they be sharing this with you?

5. Change the subject.

When you suspect that a conversation is starting to take a turn for the negative, be a champion of positivity by changing the subject. Of course, you have to do this without ignoring what the other person said.

Acknowledge their comment, but move the conversation forward before the euphoric pleasure gained from complaining takes hold of either of you.

6. Talk about solutions, not problems.

Sometimes, changing the subject isn’t an option if you want to deal with negative people, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still be positive.

I know that when someone begins dumping complaints on me, I have a hard time knowing exactly what to say. The key is to measure your responses as solution-based.

You can do this by asking questions like, “Well, how could this be resolved?” or, “How do you think they feel about it?”

Use discernment to find an appropriate response that will help your friend manage their perspectives.

7. Leave them behind.

Sadly, there are times when we have to move on without these friends, especially if you have exhausted your best efforts toward building a positive relationship.

If this person is a family member, you can still have a functioning relationship with them, of course, but you may still have to limit the influence they have over your wellbeing.

That being said, what are some steps you’ve taken to deal with negative people? Let us know in the comments.
