What's your opinion on Moustaches?

Asked by charcoalwasp (101 points ) July 25th, 2012

Personally I don’t like them at all. Its not a fear as such, but I would happily cross the street if it meant avoiding a moustache, Im not too sure why, I just feel oddly uncomfortable around anyone with one. Like my Aunt who has a fear of snakes, and can hardly enter a zoo just because of the thought that there might be one around.
Beard and Moustache combos are all right, infact I like them.
But Moustaches on their own, no matter what style, they actually make me shiver.

My husband did not shave for many years, and I found it quite appealing.

I love to ride them.

My husband had one for years. I loved him and he loved his moustache. He shaved it off for our wedding and hasn’t grown it back. I prefer how he looks without it.

Well, you will never enjoy the company of my wionderful husband who is smart and witty and sweet. Because he wears a mustache.

I have no use for any type of facial hair.

They used to be considered sexy, Burt Reynolds/Tom Selleck/Nancy Reagan.
Wearing one now just makes a bloke look like an extra on a seventies porn shoot.

I think mustaches look fine on older gents, but I’d freak out if I saw a 25 year old kid with a handlebar or fu manchu.

I also like the mustache and beard combo, even on my boyfriend (we’re 23). He usually keeps a goatee, but likes to participate in No Shave November.

It’s identity for some. Don’t agree? Recognize him?

Want to see weird mustaches?

They suck.

josie's avatar

I agree with @ucme . When I see them, I think of my pictures of my parents from the 70s. They were not porn stars however.

You had bad experiences in the seventies and eighties. Perhaps you were attacked by clones.

ucme's avatar

@josie You said parents…....your mother wore one too? ;¬}

They only look good on older men.

Some older guys look weird without a mustache.

My dad, for example, has had a mustache since he was in his 20’s back in the 70’s. I never knew him without a mustache until one morning when I woke up and saw some stranger in my dad’s bathrobe… then I realized it wasn’t a stranger. It was my dad!

It turns out that he messed up his mustache while shaving and ended up just shaving the whole thing off. He looked like he had a fat upper lip. I couldn’t look at him with a straight face until it grew back. My mom was totally disgusted, too.

Sometimes men with an overbite look better with them.

A moustache looks ok if you have a beard as well. On its own, it tends to make you look like a 1970’s porn star.

andreaxjean's avatar

LOL @downtide Ron Jeremy?

charcoalwasp's avatar

@Kardamom they all make me a tad shivery, except for the Jonny Depp one, I can just about tolerate that…

flutherother's avatar

I don’t like seeing them up close.

gondwanalon's avatar

I’m OK with moustaches on other people. I don’t have one because it feels like steel wool growing out of my lip.

Mr_Paradox's avatar

Depends, who are you talking about?

charcoalwasp's avatar

@Kardamom If I ever go on a diet, that’s the photo im strapping to all the unhealthy food.

jca's avatar

I’m ready for my moustache ride!

Paschar's avatar

Consider this : Chaetophobia is the clinical name for fear of hair .

ucme's avatar

I thought it was yulbrynnerophobia.

Mr_Paradox's avatar

all Iknow is that tripledecaphobia is the fear of the number 13

flutherother's avatar

And coprophobia is fear of the number 2.
