View Full Version : Do You Shave On the Weekends?

08-23-2007, 13:17
I don't and my spousal unit hates it. I usually don't shave during vacations either. I use an electric shaver, so it's fast. I'm just LAZY.

08-23-2007, 13:35
Nop, unless it's a diving vacation, then I shave after a couple days, don't want to end up with a leaky mask.

No Misses

Nope. I do have a gotee. But, I don't shave the rest of my face on the weekends. As for the mustache, I don't look at it as a leaky mask. I see it as a built in purge :-)

08-23-2007, 13:43
I do, but I work on the weekends. And I have to shave daily for work so that we're "clean shaven." But usually when I'm not on, I'll the shave go for a day or two. She hates it though...


08-23-2007, 13:50
I do if we travel for vacation but not any other time off from work unless I am diving.

08-23-2007, 14:07
My wife loves for me to have a beard and mustache so no shaving for me.

08-23-2007, 14:09
I don't unless it's a diving vacation. Matter of fact I just shave every two or three days anyway.

08-23-2007, 14:26
I won't shave on weekends if I'm staying home...but I'll do it if my wife and I are going anywhere besides visiting friends or family.

08-23-2007, 14:58
If I don't shave I look like Sasquatch. My wife calls it my 9:00am shadow

08-23-2007, 15:02
nope i let it grow on weekends adn vacations

08-23-2007, 15:09
I do or I look like I'm homeless (I always wear my tattered jeans and crappy old t-shirts on weekends).

i dont so that i do look homeless

08-23-2007, 15:14
I shave everyday when im working, ill shave every 3 days or so if im not - occasionally ill let it go longer

08-23-2007, 16:36
And I don't care what my wife and girlfriend think.

It's about me.

08-23-2007, 16:48
Yes most weekends and vac.

08-23-2007, 16:50
I answered yes, but I need to qualify it. I only shave when I dive because I prefer a mask that doesn't leak like a sieve. Otherwise I don't shave on weekends when I don't work.

08-23-2007, 17:25
Yep I shave all the time. The misses likes it smooth. Her thing is, I keep it smooth and she will keep it smooth ;)

08-23-2007, 17:53

Same here, though she waxes so there is sometimes delay:smiley13:

08-23-2007, 17:59
I'll shave on the weekend if I'm diving.
I'll give in if it's a requirement for "special consideration".


08-23-2007, 18:01
sundays normally my day to shave, just like the sailors used to. plus im a contruction worker and im married so i have nobody to impress anymore with shaving every day.

08-23-2007, 18:14
If I'm not traveling on business, I work out of the house, so I don't shave those days either

08-23-2007, 18:30
Every few days at best, barring some special event that warrants a clean shave.

It's a lot more work when you have the whole head to deal with...

08-23-2007, 20:17
Same here, though she waxes so there is sometimes delay:smiley13:

Ah... I hate that delay :(

08-23-2007, 20:36
I have to shave during the week (military), so I blow it off most days I don't work.

08-24-2007, 08:12
I shave on sunday and let the scruff grow all week. So I say I only shave on weekends.

08-24-2007, 09:06
This is hard to answer with wahats given. I shave every third day the night before I have to go back to the firehouse. On Vac. when it starts to bother me.

08-24-2007, 09:09
I used to never shave on weekends. Never.

But then I got divorced... and started dating again. So I've started shaving on nights where I actually think I might like my date!

08-24-2007, 09:40
I don't shave on my days off. I work every other weekend so, it's a mixed answer, sometimes on weekends, sometime during the week. every other day on vacation.

08-24-2007, 13:47
Rarely shave during weekends.


08-24-2007, 14:43
I don't shave on weekends or vactions unless we going someplace that the wife won't allow me in with out shaving

08-24-2007, 14:53
I'll end up looking like Grizzly adams in a couple of days w/o shaving. Much easier if I keep it under control.

08-24-2007, 15:14
i rarely shave period....i'm usually sporting the 3 days of scruff look.....it suits me.

08-24-2007, 16:10
Shave? I may not even shower.

08-24-2007, 16:31
nope i let it grow on weekends...

I didn't answer the poll as fekt it left out a couple of choices. I shave on weekends only if see wife shaving her legs/underarms. Usually means some important function that day/night:smilie39:.

08-25-2007, 10:28
I must have it pretty good. Usually I shave on Sunday and on Wednesday, then let it go the rest of the week. I get scruffy on the weekends but my wife doesn't mind. And I never shave on vacations, unless its a long vacation I might shave once.

08-25-2007, 12:29
I'm like most only shave if I'm working or if my mask leaks. So most weekends I don't shave and if on vacation it's usually about every 3 days or so.

08-25-2007, 12:49
Yes I do... if I don't my honey reminds me at the most intimate moment! Oh sorry was this thread directed at men only?

08-25-2007, 12:51
just depends the mood i am in, if i am lazy that day nope don';t care, but if i am going out to do some pr or look the part, yep. having a goatee is also a good thing as well

08-25-2007, 13:01

If I'm going somewhere, I shave. If I'm staying home...not often..

08-25-2007, 13:15
i shave on weekends help mask from flooding ,but i do have a gotee but well trimed.

08-25-2007, 13:18
why would I do that?? unless the better half says I have too of course

08-28-2007, 07:43
I shave when the spirit moves me. I keep the lip hair trimmed when I'm diving...but the chin hair stays, and the rest when I feel like it (maybe twice a week)

08-28-2007, 08:00
why would I do that?? unless the better half says I have too of courseFTW. It always comes down to that for us married guys.:smiley20:

08-28-2007, 12:44
Yes on week ends-- Thats when I fill my boat with an all girl crew!

Not during the week except over the lip to keep my mask from leaking.

Why an all girl crew you ask?
Well they bring a great lunch and know how to clean a boat!

08-28-2007, 13:27

//lucky devil...

08-28-2007, 16:45
You poor married guys... I started diving when I got divorced.

And I'd do it all over again. :smiley36:

I can hardly find time to shave during the week, why would I want to waist my time doing it on the weekends? :smiley2:

08-31-2007, 14:36
it depends if I'm too hungover to see.

09-03-2007, 08:19
if i'm scuba diving on vacation i shave, otherwise it's a no go.

09-03-2007, 17:18
I shave every day during the week, but rarely shave on the weekends.

The wife digs the scruffy 3 day growth. Of course, I make her shave every day. :)

09-03-2007, 18:16
I shave every couple of days...unless there is a special event or a Dive then it gets done. Rarely on vacation or weekends.

09-04-2007, 19:50
shaving after a 3 day weekend sucks.

09-04-2007, 19:56
But it feels so nice!

09-04-2007, 20:00
Sometimes I do, sometimes I don't. It turns out about even.

09-05-2007, 06:01
I shave pretty much every Thursday because by Friday shower time its way past beer'oclock and i would prolly cut my face off.


09-05-2007, 11:16
Yes, all the time and there are days when I have dinner plans in the evening and have to shave again to get rid of the five O'clock shadow.

Not unless I absolutely have to!

09-05-2007, 12:36
shaving after a 3 day weekend sucks.Amen!!!

Try shaving with an electric razor after 5 to 7 days on vacation. There is much whisker pulling just before the hair is cut.

09-05-2007, 17:23
Since I work every other day for 5 days and then off for 4 days, I do not shave on any day off.

10-02-2007, 20:54
I have not, for the last 32 years (more than half my life), understood the phenomenon of getting up in the morning and scraping your face with a knife. That's downright uncivilized. On the other hand, I don't want to be harvesting cooties out of a long beard. So it's once a week with the clipper to keep the beard to about 1/8". Quick, easy, no razor burn!

10-02-2007, 21:06
Usually just monday to be honest.. sometimes I'll touch it up on wednesday or thursday.. but since I'm a network monkey and stay glued to a computer all day nobody really cares how I present myself at work and I hate shaving.. but can't grow a decent beard.

10-02-2007, 21:11
I hate shaving but pretty much do it 365 days a year. It just feels weird if I don't.

10-03-2007, 10:17
If I can get away without shaving I will, but my wife hates my scruff. So, being the nice guy that I am, I shave for her.

10-03-2007, 10:18
If I stop shaving my face she stops shaving her legs....

10-03-2007, 10:21

10-03-2007, 13:00
I don't care what my wife and girlfriend think.

you have a wife AND a girlfriend! How does that work?

I just don't shave at all, at least for the past three months I haven't. And when I do I actually just trim it real short.

10-03-2007, 13:34
tired of it....no shave for me except for work.


10-07-2007, 21:10
Just workdays. Got to let the face rest.

10-07-2007, 21:27
Workdays only, usually. I'm getting close to the end of a two week "work-vacation" (building a new shower), and I've got quite the beard going.

10-07-2007, 21:29
I'm trying really hard to get a girlfriend so someone can object if/when I don't shave....so far it's not going well. Perhaps if I shaved???? ;)

I usually don't shave every day. I keep a little goatee action going...if I dive, my beanie chin strap drives me nuts unless I've shaved, but that's only with a few days of stubble. If I don't shave for a few weeks, I don't mind it as much. However, even though I can pull off better facial hair than most, if not all, of my friends, that little bit of connecting hair between face and moustache just ain't happening.....:( Hence, the lone goatee. I had a "chinstrap/jawline" thing going for a while but the ladies on SB told me it looked bad, it was in the sink the next morning. With that, I shortened my sideburns.
