Beard free
I shaved my beard off Saturday morning. It was bugging me, so I decided it had to go.

Saturday evening at a Boggle event, I mentioned that I had just shaved my beard. Someone I had never met said that I had a "nice face". When I pulled out various forms of photo identification to show what I looked like with a beard, the same person told me that I looked nice with a beard, too, and that that was not a common thing, for someone to look nice both with and without a beard.

I'm not really used to being complimented on my appearance by people I've just met.

At work today, someone who I've worked a little with before and am working a little with again because my real job still hasn't started commented on my lack of beard and said that it "looks nice".

And, yes, both of these people are female, which really is a nice ego boost. I guess it's a good thing that I have a beard most of the time, otherwise I'd have to be beating them away with sticks.

could be a good thing

if it would make you less insecure, as long as it didn't go to your head and make you boorishly conceited, but just less uncomfortable in unstructured social events.

Re: could be a good thing

I don't think any number of nice comments about my face are going to make me any more comfortable in unstructured social events with people I (barely|don't) know.

Master of Discomfort

You are uncomfortable at unstructured social events? I am the Master of being uncomfortable at such events -its one of the reasons that I am such an "event creator" - it gives me a chance to socialize, and a handy context to operate in as well. I'm surprised to hear this about you though. I don't recall you ever seeming at loss for words in any circumstance. However, I guess I've primarily seen you in well defined events, so that could explain it.

Re: Boggle event?!

There are only Boggle events in Boston because I started playing Boggle with people. Just get your friends addicted to playing it, and you can have as many events as you want.
