Joheu, forget what people think and do what makes you comfortable. I started shaving since my 20's and of course progressed to the epilator and now to Flash N Go. I mean I was removing hair all that time and feeling embarrassed about it, why? Just because we think society expects us guys to be hairy beasts. No, believe me is not true. I have never been confronted about hair removal or laughed at.
I go from mustache/beard to my toes with hair removal. I suffered enough with bug bites and itching/scratching from hair. It does not like me and I hate the sight of it. People are accepting of this as they know I will not push any of my ways on anyone and I am just a little different. My woman also accepts all this and understands so I am also lucky in that respect. Of course when I was on the dating side, years ago, I never had any problems either. People generally see us for who we are on the inside and not how we look on the outside.
So, I say be comfortable with yourself, do what makes you feel right. Why? It rubs off on people. When people see you are truly happy with who you are and what you want to do, they are so easy to be around. It took me way too many years to understand this, so I just hope you come to understand this quicker and wish you the best in whatever you decide.
Stuart, awesome! Is the way! I feel much cleaner, less itchy and so comfortable in whatever clothes I have to wear. Since I started this path to try and completely rid myself of all facial and body hair, I have not been happier. I have yet to see any negativity on it as most everyone sees I have a more positive outlook these days. My spouse accepts it, so why not? Wearing a long sleeve shirt no longer feels terrible. Bug bites? I itch a little and stops bothering me within an hour or two. Before with hair could be days! So you bet I have good reason to be done with that kind of life!
