Bearded bachelors of NEPA
First Posted: 2/3/2015
Amanda Petrinka of Kingston loves a man with a beard.
“They represent a manly man; someone who can really take care of business,” Petrinka said.
According to a recent Australian study, more women equate bearded men with hotness than not.
If you’ve heard of lumbersexuals, you’ll know what we’re talking about. Facial hair on a guy is no longer considered an attribute of lazy, grimy men; it’s associated with virility, masculinity and sexiness.
“It’s a big deal to find a man who can actually, like, commit to growing a beard. It shows he can commit in a relationship,” said Kim Andrysiak of Wilkes-Barre.
