Should I lose it?

Edit: I could also trim it to a point. That might be sweet...

goatees, soul patches, look good on no one IMO...

// I might be biased because whenever I've tried to grow one my wife tells me I look like a gangster and to shave it off.

Ask your girl

Barring that, grow a full beard. Full beards are cooler than goatees.

Grow a fully, it's the "in" thing.

How about trimming it like this? You could be responsible for re-popularizing this style of moustache..... :) hmm...wonder why it went out of style?

Shave it...

...as long as you have a chin. My father-in-law has had a beard as long as I've known him, and he's bald. He shaved his beard off as an experiment, and it was a bomb--he doesn't have a strong chin and he's overweight. Put those two together and shave off the artificial jawline the beard gave him, and he looked like a giant thumb.

I think you should make a Van **** out of it, really. Where the 'tache and the beardy dealy are separate. Wax the 'tache and make the beardy part pointy. Dashing!

Actually, I just Googled, and it appears that this is NOT what a Van **** is. A Van **** is a full beard, but the goatee part is grown out longer. That's some wack-ass facial hair, there.

Snakes!

My girlfriend always says I should keep it. Maybe she's into the retro thing.

Or maybe I'll go w/ mutton chops or Franz-Josef...

Whenever I try to grow a beard, the itching drives me crazy and I have to shave after about 8 days.

I have a goatee, shaved it over the winter, and my girlfriend said "yikes, you look sixteen."

I grew it back.

I HATE those stupid little -- is it a "soul patch" when it's just the part under the lower lip? Yuck. Especially on guys with dirty blonde kinky hair.

Nah, that sucked. I meant it to be goofy looking, though. I'm on my laptop (no mouse), so I couldn't have done better anyway.
